Time to start on this and edits will be taken place time to time, so rought draft:
I have a 2000 miata that I purchased bone stock back in February. After a lot of research(and more), I decided I wanted to go the turbo route. Not my first rodeo getting a kit together.
Purpose of thread: Educate some potential turbo miata owner from my mistakes.
I'll try to keep it organized.
Kit consists of:
-Garret t3 turbo .60 compressor .63 exhaust (used from a friend) $150
-Flyin' Miata cast turbo manifold $421 (could go a cheaper route here)
-Exhaust manifold gaskets $10
-2.5 in" downpipe (friend) $75
-2.5 in 5bolt V-band Swing Valve $35
-Vband clamp with flange $25
-Internal wastegate actuator $42
-NGR Type S BOV $155
-BOV flange $17
-BEGI vacuum block $43
-I/C and Piping (CX Racing) $164 (still to be fab'd)
-Oil Feed: Sandwich plate from glowshift, fittings and line from summit. $77
-Oil pan fitting $6
-Flyin miata boost gauge $66
-AEM digital uego wideband $173
-Rx7 460cc injectors $100
-Brain Built MegaSqurit $650
-Penzoil ultra synthetic oil w/ filter $31
-NGK plugs $11
-Flyin Miata Level 1 Clutch $365
total of $2,616 And like I was saying, I could have went cheaper on things but I feel like, for what parts I used, this is a solid price compared to what pre-fab'd kits have to offer. I cut my i/c piping and for now just had tabs(nipples) welded on. I'm running too many couplers but it's temporary. $60 spent there. and $50 for down pipe modifications. Grand total of $2,726
As she sits right now 9/19/11 -yes, still have a few things to clean up and I need to look into a better coolant line setup.
