Default Scotland UK but not a Madza

Hi I am bob from north scotland uk
I am looking around your excellent site as although I do not have a Miata I do have a 1.8 engine with a turbo and information on small engines with aftermarket home build turbo's is quite scarce
I found this site after searching for information on the Garrett GT2854R as thats what I have remote fitted to a S1 elise. The engine ( a rover k series ) is home custom built with paulter rods , ross pistons ,plx wide band dta ecu custom exhaust with sports cat , charge cooled and a small smic
I do not want a lot off boost. I intend to start with 5 psi and increase up to a max of 10 psi because I am running a high c/r and very close piston to head / valve tollerance ( excuse spelling )

Welcome to the site, sounds like you're piecing together a nice little car.

I spotted this dude while I was in Holyrood Park (taking a **** just off the trail) a few years back:



That thing sounded amazing.
