I fooled with subs from 8" to 12". The best one out of 6 configurations I tried was my own little diy slot-port mini-box for some old MTX 8s I had laying around. That box hits 25hz-125hz no problem. The 6.5s and seat speakers take over from 125hz up.

Last, a few odds and ends things I did to the car. I'm still working on the 2 tone interior but I'm doing it right. That's vinyl on the door not paint. How about a big battery? A must have for b-b-b-bass. Also is the radiator shield I made to keep the air from flowing over the rad. A nice touch. =)

Hope you like it. It's been a long project making/modding/adding/upgrading little things here and there. Oh and if anyone saw any zipties, Braineak did it! :gay:

Lazzer, great build thread. COP and heat shild are very impressive. The route im going with my build is very similar to yours, sans some of the nicer items such as ems, cop, and that pretty tubular mani.

Quick question, since im running a saab turbo, what would I have to do to be able to convince you to fab up another one of those dp flanges. Pm me if youre interested.

great work, good thread

When I have a shop and access to every Miata configuration (manifold,turbo,ect.) I'll manufacture them. Untill then every setup is alittle different. It wasn't easy cramming a 2.5" downpipe in the car. It's made out of 7 wedges cut from a J-bend to snake it around things. It's one of the nicer pieces of fab work that went into the project. Shame it's burried.

T3/T4 hybrid upgrade. I've added a T4 compressor housing off an Internation Harvester truck turbo. It's a .60 ar with a 60 trim wheel. It sounds 100x better then the T3. The T3 .42 that was on there made an aweful sucking air sound that got anoying.

Wow first time ive gone through all of this thread. They saved me from reading thousands of words to explain the same thing. You really went from super hardcore ghetto (like the worst Id seen with that pvc pipe) to clean and well put together. Pat yourself on the back cuz it looks like a good setup you got now. I bet that old manifold was really ******* up your spoolup and overall power. I am curious as to why you ditched locating the filter in the cowl?

I have a section of pipe I can clamp in anytime. I made it sectional like this because it's louder when it's in the cowl. Remember the bottom line "goal" of the ghetto setup was to see how cheap I could boost a Miata. $250 As simple as that log manifold was, it worked great. I'm still upgrading as time goes on.

Do you have to move the can to fit that IC in there or could you shove the intercooler to the side like a lot of guys are doing?

curious to know what kind of intake temps you get with the filter in the firewall like that. might be beneficial-and easy-to go ahead and punch a hole in the firewall and build a cold air isolation box. think 'randall intake for turbos'.

Taken off my iat sensor on a +/-78deg day I tried it both ways. Under the hood = 104deg. In the cowl = 85deg. Almost 20deg improvement was well worth it. I'm having issues with my iat at the moment. When I replace it and recalibrate it I'll have the digital temp probe installed. I'll take some measurements again and post the numbers. There was a huge improvement with idling in traffic. I can damn near idle forever with minimal increase in intake temps.
