i have been on this forum for a while now. Mostly lurking and reading. I have never dealt with a turbo system before and figured that this would be the best location on the forum for some easy questions. I have slowly gotten my miata to a point where i feel that i am ready to add that turbo that i so sorely want.
At the moment i have about $2000 to spare.
I already have a GM IAT sensor, and electronic boost controller kit from DIY Autotune. I also have a boost gauge. Everything else that i have done is listed in my sig.
I am looking at buying begi's shanghi s turbo system with the following options...
-oil pan drill and tap
-mild steel separate gasses downpipe
-ceramic coating on the manifold
-wb o2 bung
with this i was going to order a 3 source vacuum fitting for the wg, map, and boost gauge
will this get me started out, running 5psi?
what other odds and ends am i missing?
would i benefit in the future by splurging on extras like stainless steel dp, braided lines, or heat shielding?
my future goals include...
-larger injectors 460 or bigger
-ebay intercooler kit
to run 10-12 psi.
Would it be possible for me to easily switch to an external WG setup in the future with this kit?
Thanks for helping me with my shopping list.
