I'm still trying to familiarize myself with the setup here. I really do appreciate the help and "quick list" of places to check out. I had done some research prior and I had only found the do-it-yourself kits on eBay and the flyin miata one which is $$ so I'm sorry for being a noob in your territory or whatever but just remember noone is born knowing everything there is to know and everybody including all of you who are attacking my new meat ***, were in fact a noob at one time. Just tKe it easy and try to understand before y'all come off as ******** in the first 4 hours of seeing this place. I also understand that I should have searched the forums for an answer first I just knew that you guys would be super quick to answer and I'm at work. THANKS TO ALL FOR HELPING, sorry for being new to the forums, haha I would have joined earlier if I had the need at the time. So that's it, I'm not looking for hugs or anything, just a little respect. Just because your not a noob to this site doesn't make you any betterthan me as a person, or give anyone the right to assume that I'm gay or an idiot that has no knoweledge of cars, ive been a technician for 6 years now and have graduated an automotive training program over a year long with straight 4.0 so just smoke a bone and relax my dude

Wait. All of that but you cant figure out how to get the air from point A to point B? If you searched I would imagine you would have pulled up numerous build threads with all the info you need. Some of us even post the size pipes, couplers, and clamps needed to DIY. As far as IC's go, you should also have read that most of us are using anything but a "FM" or "name brand".

Seeing that you have a 1.6, check out FM's silicone IC pipes. They cost a bit more, but they're ******* ****. I love them. Another $125 or so for a CXRacing IC and you'll be good to go. After having 3 or 4 different IC setups myself, that's my best recommendation.

I remember whan I was a NEWB! Good old days.
OP, to succeed on this forum you need to search, read and then read again. Try google search, much better than the crappy search function on the forum.
I have been a member since 2006 and only have a post count of 200 ish. I have owned 4 Miatas since then and have done a crap load of stuff using info on this site. Don't post till you can honestly say you have read all you could find or you have some wonderful technical discovery that would contribute to the knowledge base on this forum.
Very rarely should you have to ask a question that has not been answered 50 times in the past week. That is where the intolerance comes from.
It also helps to spell correctly and carry a tube of vaseline at all times. These guys arn't the easiest crowd at time but they know what they are talking about and deal with newbs all day long.
Just wait a while and you too will be enjoy laughing at NEWBS on your lunch break!

I know the BEGI or FM intercoolers seem expensive, but try to find one used. It is your best deal. I almost always prefer to fab something myself, but dealing with the confined space of a miata engine compartment and squeezing in something like an intercooler can be harder than it looks. I am a cheap bastard too, thats why I keep my eyes open for good used parts.

First of all I'd like to appologize for the immaturiety level I have previously shown, I was a little late on reading the sticky thread for noobs just like me in the m&g. That was one of the best writeups I have read and I feel I understand way more about the working of this whole thing.
I look forward to the pleathura of information on this site, and I will try my hardest not to be that ignorant noob from now on!
