Reality check on my build plans?
Finally ready to turbo the Miata.... can you guys fill me in on anything I might be overlooking?
MSnS (MS1, 3.0) - kit from diyautotune, with boost control, ignition mods, etc.
LC-1 or JAW wideband & gauge
BEGI-s1 (minus IC, FPR, add braided drain)
Ebay IC & homemade exhaust
More boost and a clutch (recommendations?)
A buddy and I are doing this in tandem, he has a 94M, mine's a 96M. Our cars are daily drivers and track toys; the power increase is desired for the track. I figure we'll do the electronics, get that sorted, then run non-IC low boost (4-5psi). In short order, we'll do the exhaust and IC, then up the boost until the clutch gives up. I already have a Godspeed radiator (are they still doing that group buy?) and oil temp gauge... otherwise, everything under hood is stock.
Primary goal is to not have to point people by anymore. Longer-term goal is 10#/hp or better, and becoming stupid fast.
Thanks for any feedback.
