Just giving a shout.

I have a 2000 with a butterfly brace, FM springs/KYB AGXs, 2001 rims, and after-market seats. It is still young, with under 60k on the odometer. I owned a 93' prior to my 00' and have had a Miata as my everyday driver for just about 10 years now.

Never did any horsepower mods though, and it has always been a dream of mine to own a turbo Miata. I have a lot to learn about turbos, and for this reason, I'll likely be lurking for awhile. There is such a wealth of knowledge on this forum!

My goal is spirited street driving, with a HP goal of no more the 220rwhp.


I am leaning towards a used Garret T25 (thinking used SR20 Det internet special), coupled with an eBay intercooler, Begi manifold & DP, with unknown everything else.




I go by R808 on Miata.net
