First off let me say, I don't own a Miata yet... I know it is probably worthless to talk about the turbocharging a car I dont even own yet, but im in the market and im in no hurry to buy the first 99-00 Miata I find. Im looking for a good deal/good condition/low mileage Miata.
I've tried racing my 07 R6 at the track and didn't really care for it. I have had 4 friends crash in the past few year racing at black hawk farms in IL. A friend of mine has been pushing me into racing a Miata and I have been getting excited to do it next year. So if all goes well the bike may be sold soon and I will have enough to get a car/rims/hard top. The rest I will have to part together.
That being said I am doing some research to see what class id rather be in. I like the idea of spec miata but running a open class with a turbo car sounds like alot more fun and its been a few years since I've owned a car that is fast.
Found out earlier tonite a friend of mine still has his turbo from his integra. he couldn't remember exactly what it was but something along the lines of a t3/t4??
1: would a t3/t4 be worth doing? when it comes to comparing turbo's i don't know much about it. is that at all comparable to like a gt2554 or closer to a GT2560R sr20 turbo?
2: can someone give me a list of stand alone systems. ive looked up the mega squirt which looks the most appealing so far and a decent price. the hydra is probably out of my price range.. And In the past we used piggy back systems that I wasn't to fond of. So the voodoo box is seeming along the lines of like a VAFC...
3: Im really just looking for advice. All my knowledge came from owning a honda. I don't want some 300hp monster miata. I am looking for 150-250. It will probably be a daily driver with 1-2 track days a month during the summer. So id like it to be reliable.
Thanks for any info guys. And I swear im using that search button a ton. just looking for a little guidance and advice.
