WAY too broad of a question dude.

How about some details on the car, your budget, and what you want to do with it?

This is a great forum and we are here to help... but you've gotta meet us halfway.

First, start reading. I absolutely promise you that if you simply log-on to the forum once a day and read every new thread and post (probably take you half-hour a day), that in a week, you'll be able to answer 90% of the questions you currently have about turbo'ing your Miata.

The first place to start if you know little to nothing about turbocharging is a book called Maximum Boost. Buy it, read it, read it again... and you are on your way to being a smart guy: http://www.bellengineering.net/Pages...cts_books.html

Second place is a post at the top of the DIY forum, called "DIY FAQ", here:
https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/showthread.php?t=4288

Next, go to www.bellengineering.net and www.flyinmiata.com and take a look at the 2 main companies for Miata turbo stuff.

That is all, now go forward and READ-READ-READ-READ!!!!!
