Hey guys new to the forum but not Miatas, or Mazdas at all for that matter. My first Miata was a Mariner Blue NA that the previous owner used as a 4 wheeler in between his trips to the klink. I fixed her up, new wheels, new paint, new top. It was stock other than that. I drove it for a while and sold it. I also have 3 RX7s: 85 FB with some tasteful mods and rare parts; 87 Turbo FC that is my drift car. Streetport, S6 PFC, BNR turbo, v-mount, roll cage, 2-way, coilovers, all that fun stuff; 94 Single turbo FD. Super high quality build with overkill supporting mods, ready for a more aggressive tune for over 600hp with more boost and some internal dickering.
Enough about that. I'm here because I just inherited another NA and want to build a second drift car on a "budget". Obviously I've never done a turbo build on a Miata so I've been doing research in my spare time but still have a bunch of questions. Id really like to keep the entire project under $3k and I want a bare minimum of 200 horsepowers at the rear wheels, more is gooder.
If anyone wants to help a fella out I need some good, used, cheap parts.
5spd swap. (The whole turkey works. This turd is automatic)
Intercooler and piping
Some form of engine management (open to suggestion)
Hydro e-brake setup
I'm sure the list will grow and change but that's just off the top of my head
