Default opinions needed

I would like to turbo my miata (91 1.6L) and came across this auction. What do you guys think and would this be a decant set-up for a daily driver? What is a good price?

Are you going to have a local shop fabricate all of the piping and such you need or what? Sorry, I don't know too much about cost for turbo's etc since i've never pieced a kit together before :/

yeah... ive looked at that thing few days ago and it doesnt seem like a bad deal. dont forget you still need fuel management, down pipe, intercooler, and all the lines/piping

if it was just the turbo and manifold and he didn't describe it, then yes maybe.

get better pictures of the manifold...to me it already looks like a Megan Racing kit, which sucks.

i think we'd all be happier with a megan kit that required bracing then sending back your begi kit to be remade 2 or 3 times
