Default DIY turbo help me

Hi my names christian I'm 17 I have a 97 miata. I live in California. I have $1400... For now. I'm working
So I am planning on buying
eBay turbo t25
Obx ss log manifold
Custom downpipe(muffler shop)
EBay oil lines
Blox 12:1 fmu
Walbro 190
CX racing intercooler and piping
Some boost controller Idk eBay
I have searched a lot.
I will have enough money for a mspnp, begi manifold in July (graduation present) is it wise to buy this now? I really dont wanna deal with begi for the shanghai s kit due to delivery time and parts missing or atleast ive heard. I'm very impatient and don't care about it cracking since I can weld the crap out of it for the next 3-5 months. Help. **** talkers welcome. Thanks

Take the bolded parts, and insert them into your anus.

Replace with parts that are too nice to insert into your anus.

If you don't care about the shitty ebay mani cracking because you can weld, just weld one up. You won't be able to re-weld the ebay one because it's too thin.

seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeearch nooooooooooooooooooooooob.

Thanks. I've searched for manifolds. Is their any good ones beside FM and begi? Not cheaper just a different one. I saw a cracked begi and don't wanna spend that much just for it to crack.

It does sound stupid.
Especially from someone that says they can weld.

Are you asking us if 304 is the same as 304?

May be the same material but the OBX is very, very thin. Get some SCH40 elbows/Ts and you can build a strong log.
You are most likely never going to crack a BEGi cast manifold. Idk where you saw that.

For the love of god, search.

Don't use the site search, google 'site:miataturbo.net <search terms here>'

You haven't asked anything that hasn't been answered hundreds of times.

You got it wrong, the hardtop gives you 45lbs. No boosts.
