That's pretty sweet, I got the car as an unfinished project for a steal of a price. Motor trans and boss frog kit already installed. I would do everything custom if I were to do it over though. I think there could be a lot of extra space made and weight saved. The car was damn near perfect before the turbo but it was not one of those "I want to kill" you cars so proceeded to gut even more and add more power. Link is to a crap vid (mainly for audio) road tuning the miata....only was running @5psi. Will get more video and pics eventually.

The only video of this car at this point should be what I post, not sure what the 1728 video is, will look into that. <br >

Turbo should take care of that nicely.

Welcome to the site. Can't wait to see what this thing can do, in for more vids.

Not the 1320 car. Will probably "only" be around 550whp tuned conservatively since it's still on a stock block. Currently on 275/50-15 nt555r's and when they are warm she just squats and goes.

So functional then, the car in the video looked to be on 17's maybe even 18's with low profile tires should be a fun ride though, my buddy just finished a forged L33 turbo into an E36 M3, V8 turbo in anything is the best

Yea, it's a rear mounted turbo, bracketed to the rear diff carrier to help offset some of the weight addition to the front not to mention over the rear wheels is probably the best place to add weight to this car. Not to mention the factory muffler space provided perfect concealment of the set upYes, the tx mini vet was first but the plate is just too good to pass up<br ><br >

I have been looking at 17s just for better tire selection, really not interested in making a drag only miata plus would like to get some larger brakes under it, things happen pretty fast even on a conservative road tune.

I have a friend doing an aluminum 5.3 in an e36 but he just wants it Na for now, knowing him that will change pretty quickly.

Ls motors in Miata's blow my mind. Then the addition of a turbo!!! I would be ecstatic if given the opportunity to ride along in one of these things. That'd be an expensive ride though, cause I'm sure I'd sell everything I own to make a v8 swap possible.

Definitely in for more!
