Flyin' Miata : Turbodog's deal of the day!

This can be the makings of a nice DIY turbo kit. You got the manifold, and you got the bell mouth the downturn to use in a home made downpipe. Plus with the turbo being that much more forward, it should make the whole downpipe straighter and simpler.

does that fit with p/s seeing as the turbo is so far froward? Personally I think its a little overpriced, but it would make for a good base.
