Those numbers you put down were serious. I'm sure you will enjoy the rotary just as much.
Thanks, the rotary is going good i got to drive it for a day before i had to pull the motor but just got a new motor yesterday. So i should soon be back on the road.

Okay so most of you guys remember my old car that i traded to the guy that had the rotary miata. Well a few years have passed and the car is also most done with the changes he has made. So im hoping soon i can get her on the dyno and tuned to see what this HTA turbo will make for power.

I am also considering once my turbo jeep is finished, im going to sell it and try and get another miata and try to copy my old EVOIII 16G setup. I believe there is still a good amount of power left in the turbo and that on a better setup i could see even more.

Just read this thread front to back. Amazing. In for more E3 16g glory. I made 328/361 with one on my Talon and thought it would be fun to try on the Miata. I'm using the crappy ebay tubular mani with it, but now thinking a cast mani + Mitsu flange might be a cost effective upgrade when it falls apart.

Your best bet is to get this housing http://shopping.kinugawaturbo.com/ki...ernalgate.aspx so you can run it on t25 flange.

Interesting. I've never considered a Garrett flanged turbine housing for a Mitsu turbo as a solution, but I'm not sure an 8cm^2 volute hotside is going to do me any good for making power down low, which is what I'm most interested in. But the v-band outlet makes it pretty tempting even though I'd have to drop more coin on an external gate.

Edit: Wait, how would that work? The side of the housing facing the center section is a bolt on affair, whereas a Mitsu center section connects with a v-band.

The lip of the v band gets pushed into the housing with bolt on clamps.

Thanks for the explanation, but damn, I thought I had figured out how to get out of buying this

Have you seen any of their products in person, or used any? Just wondering if they are machined accurately, crack overnight, etc.

I have run the GT2560R, the EVO3, and a HTA3076R. Out of the three the evo 3 had the nicest powerband and the car was a blast to drive. I also feel if i had fixed a bunch of things and brought the boost up to 25psi i could have seen 375-400whp. Also the evo3 made close to the same wtq over the others. It was fun going down the highway and going 1/4 throttle and watching the boost gauge just hit 10psi and the car going from 60-100mph like nothing. Remember too this turbo is not ball bearing but it came on like a ball bearing turbo did, and with that said forced performance also is able to fit the turbo with ball bearings and a billet wheel. For me its best bang for your money.

Gotcha. Its a shame the power doesnt come on a little sooner. I wonder what the bb upgrade would do to the curve i.e. how much to the left it would get shifted.

I gotta say, you are getting me interested in this turbo. Especially since I could buy an exhaust housing to mate up to my current setup. I bet the billet wheel and BB pushes the price to point that goes against my cheap nature. i.e. piecing a 2860rs together for $350 lol

Did that rebuild include replacing either of the wheels or housings? If not, was it only a chra refresh?
