Hello everyone. I am new to the Miata scene. I am planning on buying a 1995 Miata 1.8 L. After reading I have come to realize a turbo upgrade is the most practical way to make power. I am not going to buy it all right now, however, I do not want to spend the 3000 it costs for a Flyin' Miata package so I have come to conclusion I want to create my own.

So far I am looking at:
- JGS Turbo Manifold with a T3 inlet pattern and external waste gate.
- TIAL 28mm Waste Gate. (should I use a 35mm, what's the difference)
- Turbo T3/T04e 57 Trim Turbo T3/T4 (. 50 A/R COMPRESSOR, .63 A/R TURBINE, .57 TRIM)

What I am looking for still are the:
- Intercooler
- Downpipe
- Turbo Dump pipe? (do I need one?)
- Intercooling piping
- BOV (recirculating)

My goals are to reach 200BWHP for the time being.

My main question is what I have listed in that I am looking at, are my goals reachable? If not, what should be changed or added?
My other questions pertains to what I am still looking for. If you could suggest what to buy for those five items that would be greatly appreciated as I cannot find very much information on those five items.

Thanks in advance,
Tom Dow


PS: I have one other question. I am slowly realizing I need a dump pipe from the turbo, and another from the external waste gate (correct me if I'm wrong) how would I go about mating them to the exhaust pipe down towards the cat/muffler? Welding it? Thanks again

DIY spark plug mods... Love it... I recently decided to get more HP and after I swapped out the air in my tires, I decided to "norwood" my spark plugs.
