Yea, this ain't "let-thy-hold-your-hand-to-turbo-your-miata.net". Read all the FAQ's you can find a few times. Then every time you have a question search. After a week or two you can ask better questions. Oh, and use grammar.

Sincerely,
The Grammar **** of MT.net

I could try to defend SC's but it's hopeless on here. If you want power and the cheap, upgradeable, cheap, inexpensive, and simple are on your list, turbo FTW. If your a dumbass such as my self and want to make things more complicated and expensive for less HP a SC or remote mount or something like that will do you fine. But just wait I'll set a SC'd miata record.

If I had a 1.8 I would be tempted to do a coldside 62 setup. I have seen a few in the 250-270whp range. But as cheap as it is to turbo a 1.6, there really is nothing else that makes sense!
