Long time lurker, first time poster. You may recognize my van.
I have been considering putting together a DYI kit for my 94R package. I've owned two Ubercharged miata's and my current car is NA and has been for the last 10years I've owned it.
I really want instant response and predictable power. My goal is 200 to 220whp and a very reliable setup.
The car will be driven on the street mostly and I am looking for a quiet setup that I can kick sideways at low rpms and focuses on 'fun'.
I don't drive particularly fast anymore and big power and speed are not what I am after.
I do occasionally track the car and want something that isn't going to overheat and let me down.
I've considered the off the shelf setups but I am leaning towards a DYI setup that is less compromised, less expensive and lets face it more unique.
I'm strongly leaning towards the BEGI S4 Starter kit paired with the smaller GT2554R.
BEGI 1.8L S4 Starter Turbo Kit 94-97
I like the flow of the manifold and sound it produces in comparison to a log.
The rest of the setup is where I would like some help.
Here is what I have so far.
JDM BP FWD 1.8 with Exhaust Cam Swap (has larger FWD coolant port - blocked off currently)
MSPNP MM9495 - gen 1 I think. (no longer installed)
Innovative LC-1 (no longer installed)
RX-7 550cc Injectors (never installed)
Full 2.25 NA exhaust - JR/RB and Spun Cat
RB Intake (reuse filter)
Devils Own Water Injection (never installed)
MAP sensor (never installed)
What I think I need...
BEGI S4 Starter Kit
Oil/Water SS Lines
DYI Intercooler (maybe CXRacing?)
ECB for MSPNP
Full exhaust (eventually)
Upgraded Studs and Locking hardware
Anything glaring that I am missing? Any recommendations for this setup?
