Default 250 hp setup (warning noob)

Hi there everyone

I am new to miatas and to turbocharging them. I have a 2001 base completely stock (except a basic k an n air filter i put in today)

I would love to eventually have a 250hp output. I want it to have almost immediate turbo. I looked up flyin miata voodoo II system with the gt2554 but that only takes me to about 200.

What else am i able to do?

Thanks for your help and once again sorry for the noobishness

You should wait for track speed to release their kit.. And then you should lube up and put on a thick flame suit. Cuz you're about to get raped and attacked by a massive angry evil Internet dragon.

If you buy the FM kit and u want to get a bit more power while improving spool, just change out the boost controller for an LS1.

obviously dont have money for a v8
ive read that the 2554 because it is small has a very quick spool up and thus the effect is very quick.
thanks for your help guys

Dude, before you dig yourself a hole on this forum that you won't be able to climb out of...search the forum to answer your own questions. also figure out who's local to you that could show you some stuff.

Your first priority is to change "to the best of my knowledge" into a definitive answer. OBD2 only? OBD2 + visual? OBD2 + visual + tailpipe? PA will have the regs online somewhere. Find them and read them.

yes, your county has emissions and since you have a 2001 you have OBDII. Do you drive the car less than 5000 miles a year and have you owned it for more than one year?

If you have visual..no problem.
If you have OBD2...we can work around that.
If you have to pass sniffer...sorry pal. Find an inspection station that takes cash to sweep certain standards under the carpet.

How is sniffer a problem? If its sniffer only and no OBDII thats the easiest one to pass. Just run some high flow cat and tune like a boss. OBDII is the hardest to pass, because it requires the most wiring.

Visual isn't a problem cause you can run a fake cat/ things that retain stock looking emissions.
Sniffer is a problem cause if you have stuff that passes a visual, it doesn't mean it'll pass a sniffer.

umm, visual is failed when they see a turbo strapped to the side of your engine.

sniffer can be passed with a proper tune and functioning cat no problemo

I think our definition of "visual inspection" is vastly different

You just need to have emissions control devices that came from the factory, cat, egr, etc.

I wonder if the op has already gone off and ordered the voodoo kit.
