I am somewhat new to the forums. I have been lurking in the background for the past few months just reading on certain subjects and what not regarding engine upgrades parts to buy, who to stay away from, cough ebay cough!
Just to give you a bit of info about my miata, it is a a 2000 miata which for the most part is stock except for the (Monster Flow Intake) I was able to pickup. I must admit that was one of my better purchases thus far in regards to car parts.
This is my first project car and I am excited to get to work on it! I plan on doing most of the mods myself or with the help of a friend who is a true gearhead and has tossed in a turbo into his ford escort. Yes, I said escort.
My goal in my miata life is to give the car some major cajones by tossing in a t3/t4 turbo. I'm shooting for at least up to 250+ HP on the stock internals, FOR NOW.
I have a majority of the components/parts that I need to upgrading the car. I even have the ground effect kits and rear wing. You know, so that I can gain 10 extra hp from aesthetics alone.
I am new and I do have a good question that perhaps the elite in true gear heads can answer. =)
As I plan on tossing in a t3/t4 turbo, the current 4.10 gear ratio will not cut it. I plan on upgrading my gears to the mazda 626 rear differntials which are 3.636. Now after reading these two web sites I am unsure if this is a straight drop in. If you can help it would be much appreciated.
