So you're asking us what you should buy for a good 1.6 setup, suggesting a bunch of eBay pieces, and then telling us you don't want to hear about why stuff from eBay isn't good?

Good luck with your setup.

No, so far I think I only named one ebay piece.

Yes, I want to hear objections but not 8 pagedsof wars and complaining about how bad ebay is.

Everybody here by now knows that ebay kits are incomplete lack in several ways may be of poor quality and workmanship yada, yada yada. I have read thru pages of that crap

OK ?

My guess is that he wants a trackable turbo setup for under $1250.

I have a spare Flyin Miata intercooler for sale. Comes with a mounting bracket and a few couplers that you could use.

If you're interested, just shoot me a PM.

Oh, good luck with your build. Take our advice to heart.
