Indeed! And if you have any questions about the install ask away!

Since this kit doesn't come with an oil feed I was thining of getting a

Plastic Funnel with Long Spout Mesh Strainer Gasoline Automotive Car Oil Change | eBay

and run it to the turbo from the drivers seat and just pour in oil if the turbo starts to whine.

Wd-40 works like nitrous on a 2 stroke engine. I thought about running a hose to the carbs and mounting a can of wd-40 so I could just "nos" the carbs whenever I feel like it.
Moral of the story:
Not sure if serious.

Don't be giving away PRO-TIPS like that!

Now, for the the oil that comes OUT of the turbo.

Pro-Tip Waste gates and turbo oil should vent to atmosphere.

Hey thanks! Glad to be here!

Over then next few posts I will explain how to modify the passanger seat to hold a small generator and welding rig. This will easily allow me to reweld the ebay manifold at the end of the drive way as I take it on it's first test drive.

I feel like between the avatar, the word 'cat' in the name, and the ability to transform the miata into a mobile welding platform, we may just have a winner here.

I feel like there is something missing...

Oh yea.. ******* pictures you ----. Real ones. Do you even own a miata?

You got me. No miata at this point. I've been lurking for a bit trying to find someones abandoned project.

I'm just about done with my MR2 build and was looking for a new platform to mess with.

If I don't find a beat up miata soon I may have to buy one in good shape.

Humphrey the cat. He died last month, he was a good friend for many years. So no cat no miata life is rough at the moment.

Lovely cat. Sorry for your loss. The paws are awesome. This is really just a cat site masquerading as a miata forum masquerading as a gay hook up site.

Well you are a supporter, so you now have access to our secret sub-form where we have sticky (pun intended) threads about both.

It's a poor man's MR2.

Welcome, fellow kitty lover.
