To me it seems for 100$ u get a decent turbo that can net u 200+ hp and have a patern u can upgrade easily down the raod. I would inspect it and go from there. I urge u to look at Brains posts abit more closely. People like him and i havent been boosting our miatas for years with no knowledge on what is possible.

The BEGi S5 manifold and DP would work.


for your power goals an internal wastegate is fine. they pop up for cheap on ebay from time to time...but you'll wanna look for some like this: T3 Internal Wastegate Assembly: atpturbo.com
