Thumbs up Hi Guys.... From London

Hi all...... just browsing turbo kits and found your site, great to have so much great info in one place!
I have just decided to go down the turbo route.....
was thinking of i t b's but as all this tuning is a chunk of money, I would prefer to get all the horses I can for my money!!!

I plan to have the head gas flowed,ported polished, then a higher profile cam, or mine re profiled and shimmed?
I have a full stainless steel exhaust system and header, and induction kit fitted, timing, but now want More power.
The car is a low mileage Mk1 1.6, unfortunately it was one of the last 3 years production striped down low power ones
I have put all strut bracing back top and bottom, lowered the car, and put 15 inch 1998 mk2 wheels on......so things are a lot better.
I just need to find out which kit to go with, prob Greddy, but maybe you guys have some advice for me..... nice one cheers. Rob.

haven't had a issue with my greddy but all thats left is the manifold and turbo. Find one cheap enough, decent investment.

Buying a Greddy over other kits in the market is like buying a pc pro card over an MS. If you know what youre doing you can piece an exellent set up with that money. If you want to spend a bit more money and less time buy one of the starter kits from Begi or FM. YoU could hqve Brain make you a megasquirt, then updrage injectors and enjoy. Look up the miataturbo wiki and some build threads so you can get a better idea.
