You've added a bunch of **** to your car that makes it slower and heavier. Time to add some stuff that makes it faster.

Welcome to the forum. There's a huge amount of info in here. Start with the DIY FAQ that is hidden in the stickies of one of the subsections. The build threads are a great source of info as well. See what works and what doesn't with those who have traveled before you.

Yes, I know! Miata/Slowata! This is why I'm looking into forced induction, I'm definitely into diy projects and I'll be reading up on other people's diy projects for inspiration.

I'll be happy if I can keep most of my stock internals and produce close to 200rwhp or more!
I'm pretty sure I'll have to replace my injectors and find another ecu to control the little miata that could lol

Put your location in your profile so people know where you are located. Expect to spend between $2500-$4000 to properly turbo your car and have a reliable 200whp.
