Yeah sure. Start here.

https://www.miataturbo.net/diy-turbo-discussion-14/diy-faq-all-your-answers-one-big-post-4288/

Then start searching for everything you could ever want to know.
Then if you need questions answered that aren't answered already, feel free to ask away.

The classifieds here are an excellent source of parts. A few members here can get you good prices on new parts as well. Look at the top of the classifieds for more info on who those members are and what parts they can get discounted.

Hey Jason, welcome to the forum. Do us two favors before your next post. Fill out your profile with where you live so local dudes can provide local help, and fill out your signature with a list of ALL of the mods currently on your car.

If you've got a digital camera, take some pics and post them in the vbGarage. I think it's 150kb max for JPEGS, read this post if you want to resize them on your computer to fit: https://www.miataturbo.net/forums/sh...63&postcount=5

Just a few more pieces if information can go a long way in helping us help you:
Have you ever driven/ridden a turbo Miata?
Experience with turbo cars/systems in general?
Tools/place to work? General "car/mechanical" knowledge?
What kind of power do you think you want to make?
What are you going to do with it? Track/Drag/Drift/DailyDrive/Autocross/etc...?
HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU WANT TO SPEND?
Does it have to pass smog?
Are you planning on a running an aftermarket ECU?
Where else have you searched?
Do you belong to a Miata Club?

And the last question to answer... what kind of shape is the car in? Has it been well-maintained with regular oil changes and the like? Have you done a compression/leakdown test to determine the health of the rings and valvetrain?

For parts, there are two main competing Miata turbo companies out there.
www.bellengineering.net
www.flyinmiata.net

For general Miata aftermarket and upgrades for performance like tires/wheels/shocks/etc... then do your homework at www.good-win-racing.com.

Welcome to the forum!
