Ah, I assumed if it was rebuilt it would have at least ebay forged rods, not slightly-stronger-than-our-limp-dick miata rods.

What turbo did the xr2 come with anyway? Actually I don't care because it is 20 years old and therefore ancient. OP get a T25 from zilvia or a T3 churbo for $125 and ditch the shitty capri parts.

You know the terrible turbos the MSMs come with?

It's like that, but worse.

It spools better, hilariously (though i attribute the tune to that), but doesn't make **** for power.

Why not sell it and use the proceeds to buy a turbo built in this millenium?

You hate this forum because you are asking stupid questions. If you want a stupid-question forum, go to clubroadster. Clubroadster doesn't have .000001% of the turbo knowledge this place does though.

STFU and start reading.

So.... you upgraded the pistons but left the weak point. Excellent.


You chipped your motor? What good do you think your Rocketman chipped ecu is going to be for you?

Nah I'm sure it's a Rocketman... just don't know what he thinks it's going to do for him in a Miata.


Also can't wait to see him try to use the Capri manifolds on the Miata.

Gotta ensure you wire them in parallel though, it negates the boost if u wire it in series.
