My idea - install the turbo and save the build for later.

Nothing on the inside. You don't often see Greddy guys building their engines. By all means, if you have the money, do it, but it's not strictly necessary unless you track your car. Have you upgraded the rear end or transmission? Those are more likely to go.

our motors are the stoutest things in the cars man. The trannys and rear ends not to mention chasis will go first if you do the job properly.

The four fastest track Miatas in California all have 100% OEM longblocks.

Some have gone higher in the 1.8's, but 270whp is the upper end with great tuning.
