Default my setup please help

t3 turbo .42ar $170
jgs tools BP T3 turbo manifold $380
BP T3 oil line kit $95
ebay intercooler $100
ebay intercooler universal 2.5in piping $200
550cc injectors $380 ( all i could find any cheaper ones?)
Flyin Miata downpipe $200
Ebay Rs style adjustable mazda BOV $100

Alright first off I want to know if this setup will work and what else I would need?

Im not sure that intercooler kit or downpipe will work but its all I can find for now?

Can I get lower cc injectors for cheaper?

If you can suggest better fitting parts for that turbo that would be appreciated.

What psi could I run this setup at?

Any help will be appreciated thank you for your time..

You need some way to control those 550s. Yes, you can get a better deal on injectors. 550s even.

Instead of 100+200 for the I/C parts, plus coulpers and t-bolts, you might just have a look around here for a kit designed for your Miata.

Exhaust?

PSI depends on the tuning device used.

i am not Rm but i can answer boost controll keeps the turbo from making to much boost this is good( either on the turbo already if it is internally wastegated or 150+ dollars if not). Hoses to run the oil supply and return for the turbo( 40-200 dollars if you go with braided stainless teflon inner lines and not that rubber crap), filter becouse unless you just run a t of the stock pressure sender port yo will be t inng of a filter relocation kit like FM sells(10-200 dollars). oil pan nipple(1-6 dollars) for when you tap the pan for a oil return line.
Also you will need a link(1400), MS(300?), Hydra(1300), Xede(14000 or E manage ultimate(500-600) to run 550's.

no, fm downpipes are for garrett t25 standard 5 stud turbos (not nissans)

bov will work

with the custom manifold, you need a custom dp.

ok cool thanks the turbo im getting is internally wastegated, what are the smallest cc injectors I could get? And the hoses you are talking about would the BP t3 oil kit work?. Im kind of confused if the fm downpipe will work with that turbo and if the intercooler will work with that turbo. Just so you know im new to this turbo stuff im sure you can tell.

i have seen emilio on M.net runing 305's on a stock ecu since you are a nb and already run abit of a higher flow relative to the Na's due to raised base FP. the 305's should work yellow top supra injectors are pand p i just picked up a set for 25 dollars shipped of ebay. the bp t3 kit might work i don't know i havent seen it. The IC and intake will all be custom with your setup but your local muffler shop should be able ot do this if htey have a mandrel bender i got mine made form a mock up of Radiator hose and exhaust bends (the mock up worked but i wanted a solid metal tract it looks bettter anyway). the whole intake cost me about 200 bucks including some silicone coupler from jegs these things are expensive 30 dollars for a 2-2 1/2 coupler or 18 dollars for a 2 inch coupler plus shipping give me a breack alos you will need to find a way to mount the air filter to the turbo.
To answer the last question it is best ot get manifold in sets so any of the shelf manifold for a 1.8 matched with the DP and turbo would be your best bet . i hope this helps.

Couldn't hurt if you read it all then i owuld check out the other forum as well they have alot more stuf but that means you have to wade through it all to find what you like but the search button works wonders if you get the wording right.
