Best way to build an engine for turbo?
going to buy a spare 1.8 for my 97 miata, and will start building it for FM II 250hp+ turbo with megasquirt instead of hydra. what all needs to be done? (car is always a daily driver and will remain a daily after turbo)
of course i will need
engine block machined and checked
99 head ported and polished
water and oil pump
valves and springs
but what else would i need?
and for certain parts like oil pump, water pump, ect should i get OEM? or aftermarket from somewhere?
any help, advice, links, ect is greatly appreciated. this is my first engine build and i just want to do it right and for the car to be reliable. thank you
