i was looking for a goal of 300 whp but 250 would be fine by me! i was thinking 330cc injectors would be fine for my setup, but i've seen people put in 550, and i'm still trying to figure out how big of a fuel pump i'm going to use, and i'm still debating on an engine management system, i was thinking piggy back, or maybe full stand alone, but this is my daily driver, and i might attemp to get a legal smog. lol

Get 550s, they're gonna cost around the same, maybe a little more but not much and you'll have more head room. Pretty sure 330s top out around 230-240 hp though I may be wrong.

My theory is to do it right the first time. Make sure not to slack on too many parts or you will regret it and end up paying twice when you replace it for the part you should have gotten. Looks like your well on your way. If you need any help sourcing anything, there are several of us here that can assist.

Do it right the first time, don't cheap out on anything, and take your time. Don't be like me and mess it up and have to go back and redo certain parts :-P

Dude, asking somebody on an internet forum to vouch for you in that manner is a bad idea. I hope LOL meant that you were kidding. If he won't wait for your Paypal confirmation to come through, and sells it in the meantime, then look elsewhere. When it comes to e-commerce, use Paypal properly and you're covered.
Read my posts #27 and #30 in this thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/forums/sh...ghlight=paypal It will give you some insight into how to handle yourself through Paypal. Paypal is a great tool, but you must understand that there is no emotion. So many people (myself in the past) make the mistake of "trusting" people online. TRUST NOBODY! If you follow Paypals' rules and conduct your business within their system, you're covered. If anything goes wrong, file a claim immediately, and handle all your communications in the Resolution Center.

Back to the subject though:
I just looked through your other posts... here's a quote from your first one:
HKS t25 turbo manifold with a gt28r turbo, 330cc injectors and BEGi intercool rx7 gen 2 intercooler and piping (if it'll fit properly), boosting around 12 psi.

There's a big difference between 250hp and 300hp. You're not going to get 300 without serious engine management in a T2 series turbo. I'd look into the FM and Begi management systems. Personally, I'd call an expert, maybe Corky at Begi or Keith at FM and see if they think a T28 is the best bet for a 300hp goal. I think most people will steer you towards a T3 series... but I could be wrong. I've just always been told that T2's run out of steam in the 16psi range, which I just don't think will get you 300 on a T28.

T2 flanged turbos dont run out of steam @ 16psi unless you get a GT2554R or GT2560R. There are turbos such as the GT2860RS, GT2871R and GT3071R that will all produce in excess of 300whp. I would personally run either the GT2871R in a .63 turbine or a GT3071R in a .63 turbine for best response.

just to let everyone know i am currently in a predicament with flippy02 because he originally paid through paypal and then i shipped out the items then 4 days later the payment had been removed from my account because of it being under review from flippy's side of the account. I have emailed him and mailed him countless times and i have had no response in the past 5 days this is ridiculous i dont want to get fucked if anyone knows him please help me out!

i dont know him, but i surly understand getting money taken from your PP account... Good word of advice is to take every time you get in Paypal and get it out ASAP..

eh so looks like its out of my control right now i found some bogus information on the account and i contacted paypal and faxed them the information i found so in about 3-5 business days i think everything will be sorted out. looks as though someone broke into my account and took the money when i called paypal the resolution center representive sounded very concerned with what happened to my account after flippy's transaction
hopefully all works out in the end

I thought that paypal was extremely secure, sounds kind of fishy, might want to look into that some more before just giving in man.

the day my money dissappeared from my account was listed under the case number that flippy starteed and i found the date listed as DEC 31 1969 when the money was removed which doesnt even exist so hopefully my account is still safe from other people stealing money out of a transaction
i will keep this updated

I don't want everyone getting the wrong idea, after winning the auction, i went to pay for the items with paypal, but accidentally used a bank account taht is no longer in existance, the money was creditted to his account, i wrote an email to paypal claims department, saying the money was pulled from the wrong account, and that the one it was pulled from didn't exist, i got a reply saying since there was no fraud, nothing would be done about it, i told gdnimr0d what happened, and he said he wrote paypal, and they said they wouldn't charge back the money, so i told him then it must be on my end, and if he wants he can send the parts, well several days later they charge the money back, and my account goes into a negative balance, and m y account becomes restricted, i tried using a second account to send money to the first, to bring it to a positive balance, but both accounts were frozen and now i have all this money on my second account that i can't touch, and the only way paypal will let me fix this is if i send a money order through the mail to them, but i don't have enough in my account to send, so i've been writing and calling paypal, and i'm waiting for monday to finally get a reply from them. also the reason i didn't reply between the 4-7th was because i had left for training at 29 palms marine corps base. i don't want him to feel that i'm trying to rip him off.
