Wink first post from a noob

hey guys, i am Joris from Belgium, i am 26
my hobbys are; motorcycles, karting,and metalworking things
I have built lots of things in the past like karts and tuning scooters.
i always wanted to go faster with them.
now i have a red miata from 1991, 1.6,soft- hardtop,diy intake kit and k&n airf , adjustabel fuel pressure riser nice rims and sideskirts
it looks nice now, nothing overdone or no stupid stickers and stuff. will post picture later.
now its time for my turbo. wanted this some years ago on my mitsu colt 1996
but i crashed it,and this would have been waste of my , it was the best thing to ever happen since it led my to mazda mx5 i like japanese cars and motorcycles

now, first i get mspnp with all sensors o2 wideband, iat,..

- china charger,exhaust manifold,stainless connection hoses for oil and water cooling
-brakes 1.8
-other things i now forget

also, i wil try to make myself
-intercooler (use core from junkyard ic and weld the endtanks)
-cold air intake in the hood+air outlet, i want to place ic between motor and radiator just under the hood so the air goes in, thru ic and then to turbo and inlet manifold.

so this is my first post, i hope you guys like it

Building a BOV would be difficult.

IC between radiator and motor? I have never seen this, doubt anything would even fit in there

What hotside parts are you using? I would check out and look for the Shanghai Kit.

Might want to throw in a radiator, injectors, gauges, and suspension.

Building an inercooler may be more difficult than what its worth, since you can get them on ebay for pretty cheap.

Also, dont forget to upgrade to a 1.8 differential, the stock 1.6 diff can break at very low power levels

its true, normal ic wil not fit,
but if it is possibel, the radiator gets more cold air.
go run about 6 7psi to start and later some more. will see then.
i am still planning everything.
thank you guys
