Seriously? You couldn't take 20 ******* seconds with GIS and a little logic and deduce that it puts the turbo in the wrong direction for use in a Miata?

This thread wasn't a good idea.

Awsome!

PS. Just flip it 90 degrees clockwise and stick the DP out the hood, and use an AEM cold air intake to feed it... it'll work.
