Default Newbie here!

need some help, thinking about getting a 1990 miata but want to know if these guys are legit and if anyone has bought from them before, also are most of their kits easy to install?

thanks...

Looks like a scam. Ebay is the best place to buy turbo kits since you get paypal protection. And turbo not hit block.

Alot of the more knowledgeable miata guys these days are going with those Electric Superchargers.. Lots of power to be had, and they're really reliable and easy to tune for.

They are overpriced, but if you have the money, they're very legit.
You've entered a forum with a lot of DIYers, expect friction (see above posts).
I bought/Installed a Flyin' Miata kit when I didn't know a damned thing about forced induction. I'm glad I did, because it taught me enough that if I had to do it all over again, I could easily put together a DIY setup and save some money.

lolol, are they legit... if you have $5000 to spare, very, with excellent tech support, and a very complete turbo kit, you just need a good set of tools. I did my own DIY turbo kit and it runs great, and saved me $2500. i wish i could compare it to the flyin miata kit, but i didnt have the 5k at my disposal.

i agree with the guy tubot . they are legit and have good tech support if you have money
i think you should get it from them because they are top quality part they offer not like ebay stuff don't get me wrong.. i do have ebay stuff in my car also like intercooler and radiator but manifold i got it from them and down pipe exhaust stuff got to be strong for me so yes i got it expensive but less headache

So did you even bother to look through our vendors section? Don't answer that, go here and read the first three threads. Then create your own intro thread. Then read this thread. Then go here and SEARCH.

You definitely need to tell us your goals and what the car is going to be used for. Also are you a ricer kid, track junky, or mid life crisis cant afford a vet or Porsche type?
