Just those fittings and that hose would probably break my bank.

Any reason for the oil restrictor? I heard its a good idea to do that with china turbos but i thought you didnt really need one with the real garrett turbos.

atp turbo recommends that you run a restrictor on GT series turbos. my friend runs the same one on his GT3076 and its fine.









i have to get a few more fittings cause i just guessed at some stuff. and my turbo feed line was to short so i have to do something about that. i couldnt get ahold of my welder today so i have to wait to get the intercooler back on. gonna try to mount and plumb the accusump tomm

I don't know ctdrifter but judging by his work I'd have to speculate that he's a machanical engineer. Only they would be that ---- about a Miata....LOL nice work man, that car is going to be bad ***. Me you and cspence should get together in the spring when all our cars are done.

I don't think it could be said enough... ******* amazing! Every time I look at this build I can't help but crack a smile and drool a little. By far the most thorough build of a Miata I have seen.
