STFU and read.

We all want to build 250-300hp miatas. We aren't going to hold your hand and tell you what to do. You're a big boy now, why not use your big boy brain and help yourself?

Buy an ebay kit with the biggest turbo they offer, weld the wastegate shut and run it. Should get you to 300 easily.

Banned? No.
Definitely not. We'd all have a good laugh, probably even give the guy +props for actually doing it for our entertainment

In for 240 drift car with ebay turbo kit and rrfpr

If you use less than 500 zip ties you're doing it wrong.
