Default Want to go turbo, good time to rebuild! need help

So here it is, I have a 96 m edition with 154k miles. Ever since I bought the car ive been urged to go turbo but Ive been sketchy because I dont want to jump ahead of myself. I figured it is going to be time for a rebuild soon so I might as well buy everything necessary to make it as reliable as possible as Im looking forward to keeping this car for a long time.

I want to know-

1. what parts do I need to do a complete rebuild and where to buy

2. what aftermarket internals I should buy for best turbo performance.

3. what other misc. parts I need to do the project

4. and all the steps nessesary so I do it correctly

This will be a daily driver and I want to keep it around 10 PSI

Thanks guys!

STEP NUMBER ONE: Read the 100's of threads on this site that are specifically dedicated to answering every single one of your most basic questions. Then read the build threads. Then see the vendor section for internal deals and group buys. Then come back and ask intelligent specific questions that we will gladly answer for you rather than the stupidest, most lazy and moronic basic questions that will get you eaten alive around here.



Good luck

Why do some people base a build on psi level? Why not base it on a power goal?

The fact that you spent a year and a half to make.... THAT, tells me that in fact, your wheels are not worth more than my car. It also tells me that you couldn't afford my car. (Which is too bad, because it IS for sale.)

Translation: I'm a mouthbreather incapable of reading or doing anything for myself. I'm really good at one thing, and one thing only, and it's uttering the words "Would you like to super-size that?"

I don't care what i'm looking at beyond the fact that it's ugly and awful. My feelings aren't hurt, i'm not the one that owns that, nor am i the one resulting to calling other forums members "Bitch."

What. The. ****. I don't even....

What made you hate your Miata so much? Seriously, did it eat your firstborn or something? I can't figure out why else you would inflict that on a Miata unless you really, really hated it.
