Hi guys I'm new to the forum have owned a few mx5's over the past few years
I have stumbled accross a car with potential (well I hope)
Hears the deal friend of mine lifted a car knows nothing about it mx5
There was a turbo and manifold in the back (not fitted)
On closer inspection it has

Greddy emanage blue( fitted)
Greddy e-01 digital display boost controller (fitted)
Induction (fitted) with no injection ?( no no tho)
Full exhaust system fitted (turbo comes with down pipe ect)
Tein suspension
Strut braces above and bellow
6 point harnesses
Wide arches
Hard top
Injector have brown plugs don't look standard dunno what they are tho

I am going to buy the car was wondering if anyone would know what it would be worth ?
What addition part would I need to fit the turbo ? And what power could I expect from that management system turbos are all new to me help would be greatly appreciated guys

Hard to assess value with no information. Year, miles, condition, history....
I have no idea what this is:
Induction (fitted) with no injection ?( no no tho)
Tein can be top of the line or middle of the road (different models)
Not sure what a "below" strut brace is.
Stock NB injectors are brown

Sounds like a lot of old junk if you ask me. The emanage, braces, "induction", wouldn't really increase the price if I were looking at it.

Also, please spend a little more time on your posts, they're nearly impossible to read.

Can pick it up for just over a grand thinking of stripping it and using my existing car to make one good one I suppose.

A running Miata is worth $1000 for sure.

I'll bet I've spent 100hrs reading about all aspects of a turbo build, you've spent .5 and are not even taking the time to write coherent posts. Seriously....

Use caution buying someone else's failed project.
