Don't listen to these guys. Take my advice:

mazda engine have problems, and once it does it gets fucked up, so putting turbo on will just make the problem worst

But, a turbo kit from one car will not bolt onto another. The parts are not compatible... specifically the manifold and downpipe. The flange that bolts the manifold to the engine does not have the same flange (or not that I know of)... and since a Civic is FWD w/a transverse mounted engine w/exhaust on the front side, the exhaust routes underneath the engine and back... while the Miata is RWD with a longitudinally mounted engine and the exhaust is on the side of the engine and runs back.

The turbocharger itself is essentially a universal item and will bolt to any manifold/DP that has the right flanges for it to bolt to and will fit in the space provided under the hood.

As for injectors, 450's are a good size if you're going with some sort of engine management (standalone/piggyback) but cannot be used with the stock ECU and the DSM injectors are not compatible with the stock Miata wiring harness and will need to be modified to work at all.

Did you read the FAQ that I linked and did you go to the FlyinMiata and Bell websites and check out their products like I linked in the 4th post?
Since im pretty sure that this level of reading comprehension is above and beyone what MazdaMitaTurb-Oh can understand (obviously because he is from the "OC"), let me put this into simple words and phrases.

Miata turbo is expensive to get done to engine do not **** up and is good. You must have computer in car to make sure manifold welds dont blow and that floorboards do not fall off. :gay:

You guys should make this a mandatory read before making the first thread.

but turbo does accelerate wear somewhat since you're working the engine harder with the turbo. use better oil with the turbo and change it more frequently for example. turbo.
That whole thing reminded me of:

MEOW!

I think this would be better:

"Miata turbo is expensive to get done to engine do not **** up and is good. You must have computer in car to make sure manifold welds dont blow and that floorboards do not fall off."

Ok dude check this there is only room for one abiguosly bad gramar using turbo afficianado. Your freind is probably talking about rotaries, wich blow up very easily esp if the tune is crap.
To realy help you we need-
  1. Year of car
  2. Power gaols
  3. budget
Professionaly instalation is not recomemded generally on this forum accept for those who are retarded or rich (essentialy retarded with $$) Tunning however is something that is good to farm out especialy of you are chickenshit or, know and trust other people to not blow your stuff up. You have many hours of reading ahead of you. You say you know about miatas, but as of now you still have not shown us any information we can use to help you. You do know there is more than 1 miata model right?

+1 on no professional installation. Who's going to do a better job, an informed enthusiast working on their own car or your local t00ner shop that mostly installs overpriced intakes and wheels on Civics and 240s and has very little knowledge about YOUR car? **** rice shops, they're all hacks.

Step one is to get informed. This could take anywhere from a few months to a year of diligent, daily research. You'll also need a shop manual.

Hahaha, you go the the University of Contoured Integras? That place is ricer city.

I vote that the OP **** off. Just pay someone to install a 100 wet shot and call it a day. You fail at cars and you are wasting our time with your ignorance and marginal ability with the English langauge.

Also, I hate wallet mechanics that don't know the first thing about cars. At least learn the proper words for things. If you aren't going to do it yourself, you are on the wrong forum. This is DIY Turbo.

Ah **** U smartasses, ill just sent my car to the president of the United states of America and ask him for advice because i know he is very good at turbo and wont blow my turbo up because he is so good at not blowing things up, especially in Iraq. And for you dumbfucks who criticize my english, first of all this is a ******* forum, you just type wtf you want to say and get it over with, this is not a ******* essay you retarded morons. If you want to learn how to write an essay then i'm sure i can help you morons who aren't smart enough for a higher education. And no, UCI is not full of contoured integras, but rather bmw 5 series and suburu STI, so whoever said that go shove a exhaust pipe up your *** bitch. btw the professionals i referred to are my buddies who go to UTI and they have turbo car of their own. who is ******* dumb enough to go rice shops nowadays!!??, whoever you are, I think you are a ******* moron for bringing that up in the first place. **** YOU RETARDS HOPE YOUR MIATA TURBO BLOW UP IN YOUR FACEEEE WOOOO. Btw ill just delete this name and come back as another person and ask more stuff, muahahahahhahahaha, and yea listing all the cheap **** you got for your car on your signature is pretty damn gay....
