Hey bro. I knew the name renown performance seemed familiar. I am trying to make an actual budget for this build and stick with suspension, wheels/tires for now, but I've owned the car for less than a week and I already bought a hardtop for it. Lol
And seeing The turbo kit options out there are meh, I'm having a local (matt) build me a turbo manifold. Same guy that built my twin scroll setup on my Sti, and do like a vband tial housing with a gt2871 and an Ewg. Also e85 and boost until the stock block gives out

Wanna sponsor me?

Hpde events. Drifting is way too much fun, but it's not the reason why I bought this car. I wouldn't mind doing it though.
I usually buy all my parts from those guys in Plymouth, but they Are not really into miata's, and would rather support you guys instead.

Let me know

I don't ever want my manifold to crack on the track. So yes the bracing was warranted.

BW has some nice turbos, but until they are full v-band they wont do for me.

I suppose. I am not used to the abuse cars get for longer than a 1/4 mile at a time, but this will soon change

Tial just needs to make an exhaust housing for them.

Yah the abuse that the track gives is a bit more then a 1/4 mile. 20min sessions of either braking or WOT can be a bit extreme.

I have heard that sometime in the future there will be full v-band housings for the EFR line up. Not sure if it will be tial, bw, or another company making them.

What car do you usually drag race in?
