Default Just posted for help in the noob section....

hey, its randall, probably with the newest post in the noob section....
Im here to get discussions started on my wanting to boost.

I do have a t25/28 interanl wastegate turbo.
FMIC and piping
BOV
Manifold


I know I need engine management, injectors, a downpipe, gauges, timer, controller, oil lines, and Ive heard a new clutch.


I have also been thinking going with cams and cam gears instead....way cheaper but as much power???

Another thing in mind....could I take a mazdaspeed motor and swap it into my car??? is it possible and if so, how difficult??

Many questions to be answered I know but anything will help....

Subscribed?!? he isn't subscribed. I'm the only noob with enough decency to throw down 40 bucks to keep the servers up.

OP, i'm gonna break this down for you, because I'm a noob, and someone was nice enough to do it for me. I'm not trying to be mean, just giving you the facts as they are here.

Use the search. A lot. Then read all the other threads you missed in the search. I wouldn't post a new thread for at least a couple of months. Any question you can ask at this point has already been answered, to death. Get your feet wet with a few replies. I know you've built other cars, just new to miatas, but it still applies.

Every question you asked could be answered by the search function. Most ppl here are busy working on their car, finding parts, or doing research, and don't want to answer every noob question 10000 times. They don't even want to see the question. Use the search.

Sorry, didn't want to sound harsh. Enjoy your time here. There is a wealth of information here at your fingertips. Sounds like you're halfway to being boosted already. Have fun! But don't sound stupid, or lazy.
