Default Newby to Turbos :)

Hi,
Completely new to this, My MX was a scrapped that i brought back to life, its had new sills and arches etc along with interior, suspension and alloys, i have two things left TURBO and paint. I know very little about turbos, so far ive bought a turbo, intercooler, new exhaust, manifold, braided lines, air filter, boost pipes, dump valve and AIT sensor. I'm still looking for a megasquirt ecu, injectors and whatever else you all tell me to get! Anyone got any advice?

Cheers Josh

Well noob, lets start the circus.

What trubo did you happen to buy? And can you weld?

What is your location?

Do you have a cat? (Most important)

Your boost response will be instant with the miata, and you'll be able to flow some out of it.

That's basically the Garret version of my td04. Good waste gate. Decent size. Outlet flange was hard to find for 3" exhaust.

I guess I forget how small that one is as well. 2552 would be my smallest limit, but I have a 2860

The bloke that sold it to me was running 250 bhp and said it was ample, are you saying its not? My understanding was that it was similar to the TD04 as stated above

I know nothing of the TDO4 but aidandj is someone I would trust. (GT2552 is small in my eyes) I formally retract my memes and wish you the best of luck... Should be great for a stock motor setup

One eggplant for me

What IAT do you see aidan with your TD04?
