Default Miata Turbo Parts you would like to see offered

Just thought I would get a concensus (sp?) of some things that you as the community might like to see offered for the turbo miata, or even just the miata in general. For instance, a few nights ago I had a thought to make a quality oil drain, and possibly oil feed lines specific to the miata. So lets here what you want offered.

intercoolers you dont have to sell yourself to afford

and a megasquirt ems that is as close to plug and play as possible

and a two foot high double decker spoiler

edit: i think just about every person on here would really like to see some quality cheap flanges for just about anything turbo related and miata related

Intercooler and pipes for sure.

I would also be interested in an oil feed and drain kit.

Isn't much to it, but http://www.diymiata.com/awinject.htm has a pretty good write-up to install in a miata.

- I wish somebody offered a service in which you told them your setup (including fuel management, etc) and you received all the appropriate fittings, bolts, random hoses, and sealants/teflon. I would paid a premium for that service

- around-the-radiator **** equivalent (cheap, get-the-job-done quality) intercooler setup, left so that the buyer would fabricate the hotside end to meet the turbo (generalize the "kit")

[EDIT] What I'm trying to say is that I want to buy Stripes intercooler kit, I can take off the 90* from the turbo outlet and adapt something of my own to fit. [/EDIT] <-- not quite

- cheaper, big cat-back

EDIT: More laziness would be great!

how much cheaper do you want than $325 on a 2.5" or $369 on a 2.75?

Nobody asked what realistic turbo miata parts we'd like to see. Sure, the Enthuza is cheap...but don't we always want cheaper?

PS: I'm cheap. Stripes kit is a bit too nice for me.

The water injection should not be intimidating Tabs. With all the mods you have done on your car, I am sure your are more than capable.
A Miata specific tank would be cool

Thus far, this is what I see,
1. Oil line/ possibly water line kit.
2. Intercooler/ IC piping with quality mounting hardware.
3. Plug and Play Piggyback ECU
4. Mitsubishi Turbo Manifold
5. Proper fittings, lines, and gasket materials for the misc. things.
Keep them coming! If enough are interested the oil line and water line kits may be very possible. What do you think a reasonable price would be for each? I'll have to do a bit of research, but I think I could offer something like that pretty reasonably, at least for the T3's.

Plug-n-Play ECU would be #1 on my list.

I think the Greddy EMU with well fleshed out maps for various setups would work for most people for a PNP ECU. Or the same with a parallel installed MS.

Oil source/return line with fittings with specific line length for the Miata like this:

http://www.blaastperformance.com/index.php?p=oil-kit

but maybe lowball at $75 if it's doable.

I'm in the process of putting together a kit for the oil lines right now. No price quite yet, but it should be very competitive.

Werd. It'd be awesome to have something like Hondata for the Miata. That PnP MS kit is close though, only about $100 more than Hondata and controls as much if not more. Harder to tune though? I dunno.

I just ordered the oil lines from JGS, shipped was less than 90.00

It's not the oil lines that are hard, they can be made cheap. It's that damn 1/8 BSP adapter, The place I used to buy from, gets over 30 bucks shipped for it, (it was only 18 shipped last time I bought from them) so I just went to JGS and ordered everything...

So please add that 1/8 BSP adapter to your list.

P.S. Not every state has a hydraulic fitting/shop that sells to the general public...F'ers...
