Smile miata veteran, turbo n00b!

Hey everyone, just signed up.
I've got a turbo project coming up that I've slowly been affording.
Current situation:
-1993 with 193k on it. DD'd for almost 4 years. No longer running in winter though!
-cheap coilovers, lowered a bit
-15x7 ebay wheels
-hankook ventus tires
-previous owner added header and removed muffler
-everything else is stock
-like new DSM T25 sitting in the garage
-ebay manifold and downpipe coming soon
-oil and water hookups being researched
-pnp MS2 as soon as i get a full time job

-180 ish horsepower. I want to keep it conservative at first and use it as a learning experience. I don't plan on keeping the car forever because of how rusty it is. Maybe get a cleaner miata in the future and do an even better turbo job on that one.

Just graduated in Engineering so as soon as I get a job somewhere I'll be able to really jump into this!

Skip the eBay manifold and downpipe. They will break on you. Also I do not believe the DSM t25 works with any of the off the shelf manifolds and downpipes.
