Default Going Turbo

I have a 02 ls, engine is completely stock. I am interested in going turbo because theres just not enough power. I daily drive my miata so I want reliability if at all possible. I drift my car once or twice a month, other than that shes just driving me to and from work and what not. Im not looking for a massive hp increase.. any suggestions on what set up I could use?

So let me get this straight...you "drift" a non turbo'd miata? How do you break the tires loose? On all the bullshit?
Not looking for a massive HP increase, but you want to turbo....
Another thing...the "d" word isn't welcome 'round these parts.
Hope you brought your flame suit.

First and foremost, read the stickies, then put your location in your "details" and car info in your signature.
You can get a kit from www.bellengineering.net or flyinmiata.com.

Why you so bad at capitalization?

New members who communicate well, read the stickies and ask intelligent questions instead of asking something that has been asked 1000 times before do fine and are welcome here. Drifting however, will get you butt-fucked when ya ain't looken' for to get butt-fucked.
