Sorry for the abuse you are getting Toby. There are a lot of people where who seem to think "drifting" automatically makes you retarded.

In any case, unfortunately there isn't a whole lot of 'love' for DSM T2s. It can be done, but for the most part you'd be best off fabbing up your own log style manifold and making your own downpipe. Not sure why you have to prove you are capable of doing such to everyone else on the internet but it's definitely do-able for the prices you are looking at. Megasquirt is gonna be your friend on getting tuning for fuel and ignition without busting the budget too much.

I don't think you'd be able to pull 250 hp out of it, but you can definitely get 200, and I know you don't have any problems with tire roasting, if you need em to spin more just add more tire pressure.

As for engine management, i thought about Megasquirt, or emanage. There is a blue locally with software but the harness is all hacked up Its only $100.

I want to see pics of your awesome fab work. Lets see the filler-rod mounds. Fabricating turbo manifolds is easy, its just hot pipes with air in them.

and I hate reading my rants to see errors that compromise my intellectual integrity...but considering the subject's company, I could transcribe a conversation from my child-hood miniature Yorkie and convey intellectual superiority.

fixed

Realistically, if you want to drift this car and make it through at least 3-events or so, you'll need a $3500 kit from ABSURDflow with TiAL parts, either a used $200 "radiator barn" like mine or a trackspeed radiator for $500, $100 oil cooler, $200 or so in fittings and oil lines for the turbo and oil cooler, $500 for MS in any capacity at a minimum, $100 in heat shielding, $350 clutch ($1k if you want the badass 949 clutch), $500 for a 6-speed, and a few others that I've forgotten.

Sure, there are probably people out there running FM or BEGi manifolds, but they aren't running them for long without working on them and the turbo is rarely if ever sealed to the manifold. Some new tech was pioneered over here that may change that, but this does not change the frequent warping of cast iron. Tracking a turbo car reliably is not cheap. I have the wrecked bank account to prove it and I'm nowhere near competitive.

awwwe, look...those meanies at the turbo forum just answered your questions, even though you are insignificant and generally rude. You better kiss my *** or I'm going to delete that **** and ban you. I'm also plugging your GF, btw. She's a *****, and has very large sex organs, and clearly accommodated several reproductive organs from basketball teams.

Actually I did it. Course I managed to pick up a steal bargain when Flyin' Miata had a AVO kit, minus intercooler turbo and management for 400 dollars. So add T25 that I rebuilt myself, add Megasquirt and a bargain for $60 dollar bar and plate intercooler, and I have a very nice quality build for cheap.

That in itself is pretty impressive. With the waste gate wired open mine still hit 6psi when I didn't have an exhaust.

Seriously...go through the build thread subforum.

There's a pretty damn awesome tube front drifter build that's almost wrapping up as well. Way outta your budget, but more impressive for the fab work than the money thrown at it.
