And 250 is way more than a tad bit hp. If you want it to run like a gt mustang you need like 160hp.
With 250hp, you should out run 90-96 corvettes. The car will be a beast spinning tires everywhere, with the ocassional sideways in third.
I don't know how much hp I have yet, but I nail 120mph like it is nothing. If I had a extra gear, I it would hit 150mph easy.
I can't wait to spank a Lotus Elise. Everytime I see one, I'm not in the miata. So It is game on now.
Begi and Flying miata have good kits. Or you can make your own....
And for $5000 euro's, That is like $7500 in US $$$. You can do it all......
Top of the line kit with fuel management, WBO2, clutch & flywheel, and injectors. OH-YEA! Mabe even a craftman 263pc tool set. And after shipping, mabe beer money and hot dogs for the crew to help put it on the car.
$5000 turbo kit with management and IC,
AEM wbo2, $250
clutch $350 + shipping
Injectors $300 ( or get used $150)
Old lap top $200
=$6100 + shipping
There are no Mustangs or Vettes over here mate. I'm pretty sure you'll suck the Elises's *** through your intake in no time.

The weak link in your drivetrain is the differential. Be sure to research 1.8 differential swap if you get over the 200whp mark. It's a 7" ring&pinion... don't know if those ever made it to Europe though. The 1.6 6" ring&pinion will do fine up to 200whp if you don't drag race or drift it.
samnavy, mine is a 1.8 with the stock Torsen diff. Isn't that good enough?
