Default drift miata turbo build

the car: 95, manual, C package, torsen lsd, 150K, and engine runs great. i will be replacing all the major gaskets, hoses, belts, and fluids before the turbo.

i'm looking at getting the begi-s kit, MSPNP(with IAT sensor, boost control, and fan control), 460cc RX-7 injectors, Ebay intercooler kit, HKS SSQV BOV, a custom 3" turbo back exhaust w/ only a cat, LC-1 Wideband, and all the odds and ends(like flywheel, clutch, etc.)

My goal with the car is to make it a competitve drift car. it's already got full suspension(coilovers, bushings, tie rods, end links), good rims(axis oldskool sakura 15x8), gutted, and my year of drifting experience.

i'm in no hurry on this project and money's not really a problem. i'm not looking for lots of power just enough to keep my drift going with no problem. my goal is around 210-220 whp. i see those numbers as more than enough to keep it going. if you guys think this is a good layout for my goal or if i dorked up anywhere i'm more than open to any suggestions. thanks!

Most here don't care for drifting.

But your goals/plans are reasonable.

I think your HP goals seem a bit low, what type of events are you planning on drifting at? it seems like it would be hard to keep the tires spinning at 80mph with only 200HP.

Ditch MSpnp boost control solenoid, get a MBC. I'm guessing your going to get a 2554 or a 2560. 2554 will probably be better as it maxes out around your max power plus it has quick spool.

i'm quite familiar with MBC's. why would the MBC be better than the solenoid from MS?

You will want to contact a member here named TURNS101 I believe he is a sponsored drifter and I think he runs around 400whp.

I have a pic of me drifting at Laguna at over 80mph on R-comps, but it was not on purpose.

Using correct punctuation, spelling, and capitalization add 10whp and 7* of slip angle. SSQV's sound gay. Don't buy it. Get a tial or other suitable mans BOV.

I've always loved the sound of the SSQV personally. That's why I'm going for it this time. I've had a few different types(Tial, Greddy RS, and EGay crap)and that one's caputured my intrest the most for me. BTW chicksdigmiatas, what do you do at Lackland AFB? I'm Aircrew Flight Equipment(or Life Support as we were known).

Nutritional medicine. Lame as hell. I had a ssqv and it was cool for a week, then it was like nails on a chalkboard. I got pissed and grabbed some wire cutters and de whistled it by cutting the little fins. I want a tial, but wont pay for it while mine is still functioning. BTW have brain build you an MS, it is cheaper and better.

Oh? Would it be plug and play? I'm not looking forward to doing wire splicing.
