Yes. I got the top for free. I have been contacting the local mobile window people trying to find a new one, but they all play dumb when you mention the rear window on a Miata hardtop.

the question might be slightly better but still WAYY dumb. different size turbos are efficient at different boost levels and put out different power/torque....there are millions of examples but ill go with a true story from personal experience: on my wrx with a tdo6h 20g 8cm turbo i made 30whp more on 4 psi less than with a td05 18g 7cm...also when i was running only 9psi on the 20g due to being on stock injectors and waiting for 750's to come in, i ran a guy pushing 20psi on a stock td04 and absolutely shat on him. his response was "9psi????? WTF!!!".....simply put, a turbo that flows alot more air doesnt need to be pushed as hard as a less efficient one to net same results.. asking about boost usually doesnt result in any useful info.

sorry for the mouthfull, just my .02

HAHAHAHA dude i so agree.....
i usually take the latter approach though, if i see someone knows nothing i have as much fun as i can with it: i say its twin charged with veetack and also got a rotary engine in the back
