Arrow My first turbo engine build

First post on this forum and its alrady nooby. haha

First off, i own a 94 with 123k miles and i want at least 200whp; i have an idea on where to begin i just dont know exactly what i am looking for. hopefully that makes sense. price is not really a issue as of right now since i'd love to gradually grab what i need to make my car to this level of horsepower that i want. i do have several friends who own boosted cars but they arent really that helpful since they own other cars that arent Miatas.

any advice is helpful.

i am tired of the old slowness that i have. forgot to mention my car is quite closer to the ground on 15x9 wheels with a 4in lip.

HEELPPPP!!

I'll help you.

1. Use good grammar and punctuation.
2. Use the stickies that cover all of what you just asked, as well as the search function.
3. Get ready for a rude awakening if you continue down your current path.

I'm making popcorn now. This could get good.

4. Ask specific questions.
4,1. Search extensively before you even think about asking a specific, eloquently worded question.
4.2 The community will not spoon feed you everything, or more importantly anything.

5. Welcome.

What you should do is read the DIY FAQ prior to asking any questions.
