I honestly cant remember the specs of my turbo other than it was a twin scroll garett straight T-4. The manifold was a custom tubular manifold and my intercooler setup was a ducted hybrid top/vmount setup that worked amazingly well.

I really wish our engines didnt suck at making power without forced induction. Id love to have something like this but the expense is just not worth it at all

Best way to make Naturally aspirated power in a miata that I can think of is to drop in an LSx motor :-D

Oh, you don't want to spend ten grand on it? FE3 dohc swap wouldn't be a bad choice. Lots of stuff still works, such as turbo manifolds... worth looking into seriously.

can you do that autokonexion body kit but with the blister fenders? It looks like the front gt fenders could be swapped for them. The weird part I'm mentioning is that vent at the bottom, it just looks weird and out of place. God damn their website is hard to understand with the engrish and poor interface. that kit does look very smooth though.

You dont have to cut out the vents. They come as a solid piece. I cut them out because I have something planned for them...

IIRC he sold that old block to someone else on here. I may be wrong though..

Edit: obviously I'm wrong, LOL.

Bring Gayron so I can embarrass him like I did last time when I talked about rectal prolapses and gay sex really loudly. Watching him shrink in the corner in horror as the black folks next to us giving us the evil eye was priceless.

That's pretty neat. I may have to steal that idea and find some online.
