Not sure, probably not. Just keep an eye on CLT and get it if you need it. Most street/autox cars don't really heat up the way a track car does. It all depends tho

I tried searching the forums for some t3 turbo miata builds to see some dyno sheets and all that but came up with nothing. Anyone here run t3 turbo? Just curious of rough estimate of power that I am going to make and when I would hit boost and all that good stuff.

Essentially what I'm going for and what I am trying to achieve is the top end power of a t3 with the faster spool up of a smaller turbo.
I am trying to achieve this with a t3 turbo and a high flowing exhaust setup to hopefully reduce spool up time.
My goals are roughly 250 hp running on normal gas, and 280-300 hp when running on e85. How realistic are my goals with the turbo setup that I have?

for that price you could have gotten a mint or freshly rebuilt sr t25

oh well, live and learn.

Yup mistakes were made, What would be the major differences between running the sr t25 and the t3 I have?

spool. and much bigger selection of turbo manifolds and downpipes.
but you already have a mani, so no big deal.

I think MKturbo t3's are $300 shipped brand new too
