Default check out my new turbo

hey everyone im new to the site but not new to miatas. Ive onwed this one since my father left it to me in 2004. It has 24k original miles. I originally turbocharged it in 2003 but lost interest after money and time ran out. Recently i took off my bandaids and installed a mspnp! Ill post more pics when i have a chance. Also if anyone needs a begi afpr, bipes, or 255lph fuel pump pm me.

Probably anodized, which will take the heat, the backing plates on the compressors of turbonetcs turbos have always been anodized (used to be blue, now they're gold)

the turbo is powdercoated. it has been standing up too the heat fine. I had it done a few years ago for free. The sad part is the turbo is a t25 off a 300zx twin turbo with the compressor wheel and housing off a eclipse and its too small now for my power goals. Im running 12psi and am not getting anywhere near the cfms that i need. Getting a chinacharger gt2870. much like the turbo on the flyin miata kit

I built an aluminum heat shield for mine. It works well but I had a really hard time keeping it from vibrating. But my frustration finally paid off. I'm sure yours will too. Here's a pic KNAirFilter012.jpg?t=1254781651
