Up for sale is the turbo kit that I assembled and installed on my Miata in July of 2010. Since then, I've put less than 2,000 miles on the car, but everything performed extremely well. I am selling because I've returned the car back to stock condition and recently sold it. You can see all of the details, photos, dyno results, etc. in my build thread
or you can see the various stages broken down by date/topic on my website.
Includes the following items

A couple notes:
-You will need to purchase one 2.5" v-band clamp. The one that connects to the downpipe broke when I removed it. You can find them on Ebay, just use some high temp anti-seize on the bolt threads when installing.
-The cold side pipe will need to be extended a few inches at its exit in order to mate up to the stock Miata throttle body. This may be accomplished with a silicone connector, but one way or another it will need done. Not a big deal, if you choose to have it welded on any exhaust or fab shop could do this quickly.
-Pricing is always tricky for something like this, but according to my (as conservative and realistic as possible) calculations, it would cost around $1,500 to recreate this setup. Asking $1200 plus shipping or $1100 to anyone willing to meet in Knoxville, TN.
