If I had to do it again I'd just get fittings welded. Local shop welds aluminum bungs for $30-45 all day long.
nice, I was thinking of getting the Tial BOV w/ the adapter from begi and get it welded at a local shop.

If you install the turbo kit first without dealing with the fueling, you'll be the guy making a blown motor thread.
Sp, it's not safe to run the shanghai-s kit with the intercooler and stock ecu?? I'm really curious since this is my first time playing the turbo game.
Anyways, I got the price from Brandon Fitch from Flyin' Miata for "everything" I may need. Tell me what I don't really need and what I need. I purchased an Intercooler from Bikersam. I'm going to fabricate some ghetto-riged mounts for the intercooler.

I don't think I need to re-route the coolant hoses, I don't have any powersteering or A/C components and I don't think I need the filter, since I have the filter coming from begi w/ the turbo kit.
I'm thinking of using the 1.8 injectors since they could handle more than the 1.6 (correct?) and upgrading the fuel pump...mmm... but then again, the shanghai-s comes with the fuel pressure regulator..
