If it doesn't say "external" then it will be designed for an internal. External gates aren't as common, most people run internal. Those are the prices you were looking for.

Thank you, again. Also what size intercooler do most people run? Length X Width X Depth?

ALSO: are internal wastegates adjustable? If so how?

Some internal wastegates are adjustable via tightening the actuator rod. You can also increase boost via a manual boost controller inline with the WG signal line.
You have read Braineacks FAQ right? He states alot of information in there, read it front to back and try to retain as much of it as possible. Nearly everything has been done and he has documented most of it.

Okay, yes i have read, just some leaves me a little puzzled. I thought you could, but was unsure if you could place an MBC inline with the WG signal. I believe it goes inline BEFORE it reaches the wastegate, correct?

it's really up to you what you can fit in there vs. afford.

I'm running a $80 Ebay 18x12x3" intercooler and have no issues, Fit's perfectly with the A/C dryer intact.

You could easily fit a 24x12x3" IC but it would have to be offset:


You won't get any taller than 11-12" in there, and no wider than 30" end-to-end.

yeah i linked that one above....after looking at it again it looks odd.

the compressor looks too small and the CHRA doesn't look right. look at my second link.

what is your budget for a turbo?

I'm trying to make everything under 2000 if at all possible. I am at ~700 after Manifold, downpipe, and MBC.

I am still in search for a
TURBO
Intercooler w/ piping
BOV
O2 Clamp (if needed)
Air filter


And anything else i may need, I've been told Emanage and 330 Injectors? Or should I use something else.

injectors would make it easier afpr can be had through ebay or the classifieds here. Fuel pump from lightning motorsports or another source. check out the faq. it explains all this.

I was able to source the FPR for 200 @ Begi, however, looking at lightnign motor sports they only carry Miata 1994-97 190lph, Miata 1994-97 255lph, or Miata 1994-97 255lph-HP.

They do not carry the 190 HP as mentioned in Braineack's post.

EDIT: sorry, they had a new page, and i found it.

the begi downpipe will not work for that turbo.... Call BEGi and ask them what t3 outlet their downpipe is for....the t3 has about 5 different turbine swingarms. I'd do a little more research on exactly what turbo you want to go with.

if you were willing to spend it then I'd go with brand new components:

wideopentuning (kelly) on here can give discounts through ATP, so contact him for a final price....this way you know exactly what you are getting is 100% genuine products.

You really should give me a call.
That turbo WILL give you power you want, but I believe it will be upwards of 4000-4500 rpm before you see it. If your car is a daily driver, you are going to want a turbo that will spool much faster. A much smaller and faster spooling t25 will make the car much more spirited for daily driving with the modest hp you are looking for.
