My Almost Complete 1.8 Turbo Kit
This is my first post on MiataTurbo.net and I think it is about time since I almost have my full turbo kit. I have been reading as much as I can here to prepare myself.
Below you will find my turbo kit plan and what part's I have already purchased. Forgive me if I forgot anything.
Few Questions has anyone done a similar type build?
What power did you end up making?
My goal is 250/250 hp/t. Would I achieve this with this build?
Also since I am going T3 will the spool be hurt significantly? Roughly when will I be hitting boost?
And lastly what BOV/Wastegate should I get? Any bad reviews from the 25$ eBay ones?
Any weak links in my build that I should fix?
Should I rebuild my engine prior to turboing? My car is a 1995 1.8l with 200k miles runs and drives great.
