Welcome aboard the board. I just love your screen name. It may take some digging but everything you need to know is right at your fingertips. This was my first turbo build and aside from a few hiccups which were my own fault, it has gone very well. I would never have gotten this far if it wasn't for these guys and the effort they put into this site.

Thanks, mate. I'll do my best. I really am aiming for 250 whp. Hopefully all goes well. Probably will take a while! No hurry, though. I'll be lucky if I can score the MS, injectors, radiator & FM stage 1 clutch this year alone!

Yes, I agree this site is a gold mine of info. Your setup on your sig looks really complicated. I'd love to see it in person one day.

@Mazduh: Maybe I'll see you around. I've outgrown meets. I think they're pretty silly.

Nah, it's not that complicated when it comes down to it. It just seems like a lot. Once you get a little further into it, it will get easier. Your on the right track doing the research, getting the supporting mods done and getting the engine management figured out first. Bolting on a turbo is the easy part once everything else is set up.

Tuning is a little tricky but there is a ton of Miata specific MS info here and very intelligent members which is a big help.

Why not go with a manifold that points down? Grr cant think of the name but it was one of the sellers here that was making those. Absurdflow i believe was the one making them.
