'Sup fellas, looks like I'm back in the Miata thang again.

I used to be on the old power list eons ago, but I've been out of the loop for five or six years.

I'm sure there's a lot I've missed... so I figured this is a good place to 'catch up.'

You have no idea. When you're using so much lube at home that you start buying it online in bulk, then you've really "arrived" here.

Welcome (back) Jay. You know your GTX motor that you sold to Jason Cuadra a while back smashed my old roommate's finger?

Hope you like a good hazing.

haha well he was just the courier.

so I think the real question everyone has on their minds is: will a 60mm 60 trim compressor wheel and housing fit on a 2876 CHRA without modification?

Jay,
You might want to introduce yourself better to retards like nutHustler so they understand that you have a lot to offer than moronic stories of how tough you are and how many hoes you bang.

There are only a few former power listers here. It seems that all former turbo Miata owners come back in some form or another. I bought Robbie Laurenson's turbo/Motec Miata after being Miataless for 3 years and now it's in about 1000 pieces in my garage getting an LS6 swap. Something different.

The most useful thing Hustler has contributed to this forum is the kPa to PSI conversion chart in his sig.

It's not like anyone with a brain can't figure 1psi = 7kPa, then add 100kPa.

I have no doubt Jay will be able to pwn noob bashers and send them home crying.

Nah, Cuadra's cool. So what happened to that GTX mill?

As for the turbo idea, it's no bueno. Can't install a different size comp wheel because the counterbore on the center housing is wheel-size-specific.

You'd need a new center housing. BB turbos don't have a traditional backplate like journal bearing turbos. The counterbore for the comp wheel is cut into the center housing on bb turbos.
