I've been lurking for quite a while on miataturbo.net since I've bought my Miata in 2010. It is my 2nd car and only driven in summer. It is a 1993 LE with a few mods done to it as of now: Tein coilovers and SSR Formula Mesh wheels.
I do some lapping with my other Miata buddies. The Miata is such a fun car, even with the ''underpowered'' 1.6 powerplant!
So recently, I decided to jump the gun and buy a turbo kit from a guy I know.
It is a Greddy TD04, with the 19T compressor upgrade and a T28 wastegate.
The kit came with the Greddy cast manifold (with the recessed slots to prevent cracks), a 2.5'' downpipe, intercooler and piping, 1.8 tan top injectors, MSD box, adjustable FPR, some gauges (air/fuel, EGT, boost...) and a few other goodies.
Previous owner used to boost up to 13 pounds reliably with this setup.
I plan on ditching the FPR and replace it with a Walbro 190hp fuel pump and the adjustable Powercard. I will also replace the air/fuel gauge with a wideband. I don't want to run a standalone for now due to budget limitations, but it is something I am interested in.
I have a limited budget and don't want to boost too much for now, I don't really want to exceed 180whp for this season. Reliability is very important for me. I have a new upgraded clutch to install beforehand and will do all the required maintenance so that I boost on a safe base.
So since this is my first turboed car, I have a LOT to learn. I would appreciate comments on my kit, and suggestions as I know people here have a lot of knowledge on forced induction applications.
