Is it necessary to rebuild my engine, and change out every belt, oil pump, water pump before I boost my car?

Not if it's all in good working order, and staying less than 250 hp/ tq

To run e85, I would need the flex fuel sensor, compatible injectors/fuel pump and the ecu. Do I need to rebuild my engine to run e85? If I plan to rebuild my engine in the future any specific pistons/rods that you guys recommend for e85/turbo.

We're trying to be helpful but you need to start reading and stop asking really redundant stupid questions, or people will stop paying attention to you.
Please look around the site. Look at other threads. We're not here to spoon feed.

I have found the answers I seek, and by your own hands as well @18psi, ( Found a thread where you answer essentially the same questions I was asking )

FM Happy Meal and, ID1000 injectors being ordered tomorrow, I am starting to question why I went T3 but its a bit to late for that, (just hoping to spool up around 4,500rpm worst case scenario)
Going T25 would have saved me plenty of money, however I really wanted that kick and was willing to risk early spool for that.
As for the manifold and downpipe they came in, very happy with them they look sweet ill try and post pictures this weekend, also got my oil feed and return line
Remaining Parts List: Fuel Pump, Ms3/Flex Fuel Sensor, Boost Gauges, Fuel/Oil Pressure Gauges, some maintenance items as well.
Plan is start saving for a motorcycle after the clutch and injectors are ordered so that I can start the install as soon as I get the 2nd mode of transportation.
Once its all ready to go I am ordering the ms3 from a nearby Megasquirt/Miata Tuner hooking up the gauges/ecu/flex fuel sensor and limping my way to his dyno on the base map he provides to get it tuned.
I'd like to have it all done by the end of the semester that starts at the end of this month but we will see how progress goes when install starts. The closer you get the more exciting it gets

Before you run it, shouldn't the flange be cut? It's something I never thought of before it was brought up on facebook.

Which flange are you referring to? It all seemed to lineup fine.

I didn't think that ARtech had that problem. Mine is not cut.

I think he means adding heat-relief cuts to the exhaust flange, so that the expansion of the steel doesn't cause havoc on anything. (small relief cuts between stud holes)

Ah yes I've read that being done, however I would prefer to not take anything sharp to the manifold, if it can be avoided. ( If someone can confirm that its needed I will change my mind )

IMO, I wouldn't go all cray cray on the cuts like the OP did in that thread ^^^

Possibly a full race approach. This is a MS3 turbo manifold and only has a single cut down the middle.

Quick Update: Miata is now in the garage ready for the turbo install, SV650 acquired as the new daily until the miata is back on the road. Will start posting more pictures as the install starts and progresses, last thing I'm waiting on is for my brother to drop off my tools so I can start and also to get the last few turbo parts that I am missing. ~

Heh, this made me laugh.

I sold my sv650 to buy the miata. Fun bike. Solid choice for a daily.

Which year?

I also have an 05 SV650, great bike, owned it for over 5 years now, and probably will own forever.

put an 06 gsxr front end on it (forks/brakes/wheel), and a zx10r rear shock, the bike is now perfect. comfortable, good mid range torque and handles like a sport bike.

Here's mine with the gsxr front end and rear wheel conversion. ZX10r rear shock as well. I was sad to have sold it. It was a friggin hoot. Next step would have been a fender eliminator, but i sold it before i got a chance to install the parts for it.
