I currently drive subarus but always wanted a miata for something small and RWD. Conveniently i have a td04, the subaru flanges that are needed (up pipe and DP), and WRX injectors. Originally i was going to sell off my old spare parts, but this thread has got me thinking otherwise. Those manifolds look great. You have me thinking i should closet these parts i have and boost a miata as my next project down the line. Curious as to how much you charge for the manifold shipped to the US. Although i would probably make my own.

It shouldn't be too hard to make your own mani, just get a stock up pipe and cut the flange then get a manifold flange from either ebay for $50 or use the one that's with the factory manifold on the miata, thats what im planning to do. I have a wrx and a vf39 turbo that's going in soon so im going to have a spare td04 as well.

I just upgraded to a VF39 and an invidia UP & DP on my '99rs so i have a spare td04 and the suby flanges needed. Realistically all i would need to buy is the weld els and a miata exhaust manifold flange. I currently dont own a miata but plan to get one after my RS is complete. It would be nice to have a turbo kit waiting for the day i pick one up though, especially assembled from parts i really no longer need.

No it would not be nice. The order of getting a miata and then boosting is responsibly is.
1. Aquire miata.
2. Install a MS and wideband, tune.
3. Install larger injectors, retune.
4. Install a better clutch.
5. Turbo the car.

LOL! says who? I can do it any way id like.. And YES it would be nice. Boosting a miata is a fraction of the price of what my subaru build is costing me. Already have a wideband, injectors, turbo, flanges and an intercooler sitting around that could be used on a miata build. Dont troll, you dont know what my capabilites are. There is no correct order. Please explain how having a turbo kit waiting for the day i pickup a miata would not be nice?

I know you don't know wtf you are doing with a miata, because you keep listing all the **** that is not important when turboing a miata. Nothing you mentioned so far has anything to do with engine management. Without proper engine management nothing else you listed will do anything except make a motor explode.

Also how much you spend on your Subaru means absolutely nothing. Comparing the costs just shows you want to wave your dick around and say yours is larger then everyone else's.

You act like theres written rules to turboing a miata and im here telling you youre wrong. Engine management is very important i agree and i will also agree that i do not have too much experience with miatas. But where i do have experience is with tuning and the mechanical aspect. Again youre talking like you know me, but you dont. Just because i didnt mention a stand alone doesnt mean im not aware that the car needs to be tuned. Lol i guess this forum is used to dumbasses chiming in, dont categorize me with them. I know what it takes to turbo an engine, theyre ALL similar in what needs to be done mechanical and tuning wise.

Ever read someone's posts on the internet and you are confused on how someone who bags groceries for a living and lives in his mom's basement can afford car stuff?

Also, you are a ******* douche-bag, most likely a virgin, and probably up a chromosome or two on the rest of us.

Because you're not smart enough to realize how 2nd grade punctuation works.

Total lack of understanding regarding basic punctuation. Seriously, what is your profession that requires zero written communication skills?

100% of people who claim to be certified techs on the internet are morons. Its a fact, look it up. Goes double if they say ASE Master Tech or whatever it is with the correct capitalization.

Not saying that by any means. As moderators i wouldve thought you guys wouldve been a little more helpful and more mature. Obviously it makes sense to buy the miata first, but one can be had very easily and i have a decent amount of parts sitting around. Jeez you guys need to calm down i dont get what all the hate is for.
