Question 1990 1.6 miata...... turbo kit

Hi everyone.... i have a 1.6 engine 5spd

Im planning on putting a turbo
but I dont want the whole kit
i guess to save some money...
all I want is the manifold,
turbo and downpipe

I only want around 5 to 6 psi....

thanks for your help

Go easy on the smileys.
There is a search button, use it.
Check out Braineacks faq in the DIY forum.
Once you've had 5-6 psi, it will only be a matter of hours before you want more.

That is a very common theme here to buy the manifold and dp and maybe turbo from Begi or other respected vendor and then source the remaining required parts either used, or from other, cheaper vendors. Good luck and read everything you can on this site
