The safest, easiest way is to drop the car off with your local Miata-specific turbo shop, buy exactly what they tell you to buy, and pay them when they are done.

The cheap way is to spend a lot of time reading on this forum (not posting, reading), and slowly assemble your own kit based on what others are doing/have done.

Neither method involves this thread, so if you have any desire to turbo the car yourself using advice from this site, I would advise you to obtain a very, very thick skin, ride out the impending wave of e-thuggery that you'll end up with from posting this thread, and pray that nobody remembers you in 6 months when you've learned enough from our FAQs and build threads to actually know what questions to ask.

If you've read this thread and your gut instinct is to respond to the above posters with "jeez **** u guys im just tryin 2 learn", I would think twice about it. You've inadvertently dipped a foot into the lion's den here - cut your losses and let the foot go, lest you lose an arm or a leg (or a torso).

Once you know what you want/need for your goals, you can get a kit from FlyinMiata or Begi. Thats probably easier then putting a kit together from scratch.
