Corpus Miata crew are all a special kind of gay. They're cool and all, but watch out for your corn hole around them.

You should probably find an enthusiast's web site that caters to turbo charging the specific model of vehicle you own, and search it thoroughly for specific information.

Yes. The turbos are fine but the manifolds are too thin in the tubing for our harshly vibrating little engines. They don't last.

"Stage 2" clutches go on Civics, sounds like you got the wrong clutch.

If people keep asking the same questions over and over again we don't have a forum, we have hondaowners.org.

Let me give you a pointer.

You have a question about eBay turbos? Before opening a new thread, hit the search button and type "eBay turbo". At least do that, click through some threads and see what is there before posting.

Next you're probably going to ask yourself "hmm, should I go with FM or BEGi?" Type "FM or BEGi" into the search. Promise it works.

And use paragraphs. I typed this post on my phone. I believe in you (sort of).

Learn to spell, we aren't six anymore. The forum does exist thus questions have been asked. You're being rude by not searching. It's in the sticky samnavy made! Did you not read it? He didn't type it just for fun...

If you ask the same question everyone has already answered then that means when we search for it we have to read your worthless thread in search of the real one. Stop wasting our time. Welcome to mt.net.

Read the DIY FAQ thread. It is a sticky in one of the subsections.
