You created a build thread to ask that question?

Buy everything separate all at once. Then build the motor. Then rebuild the motor. It should be rebuilt.

Did the rebuilt thread merge? I came in for the rebuilt of 2001. It was purchased separately from the rebuild, but I thought this was the post of separate rebuild.

But if you buy it all together how can you put it together separately? And if it's separate how will you rebuilt it together? I'm not sure I understand your logic.

You dont have to rebuild the motor but you do need to build the motor if you want to buy all the parts to rebuild the built motor all at once but if you buy them separately then you absolutely must rebuild the motor but the catch is you will not have to build the motor since it will already be built by the rebuild.

Ah ok that clears things up.

In that case OP, buy it all together.

I think most people on this board would just buy a complete turbo rather than try to build one out of parts.
I suppose you could use like a radiator fan as a turbine wheel and build a housing out of fiberglass. The compressor would be tricky through because it has to be tough in order to take the compressor surge. I think you would need to use JB weld for sure.

I mean, it's just so bad that I have to believe it's not his native language. If that's the case, then fine you get a pass and we can help, but if not...

So, what'll it be Brian, is English your native language?

I suspect OP is up to no good, the thread is titled "my mx-5" but it's clearly NOT my MX-5!

This guy may be in league with Microsoft; I was looking at another guy's computer today and noticed he had a folder labelled "My Documents" but when I looked in there, they weren't my documents either, in fact I'd never seen them before???
