Because you talk like a retard.

BTW, in regards to your question, that's not a very good kit. It's not as rancid and horrible as most ebay kits but do yourself a favor and do it right the first time.

If I have to put more effort into reading what you wrote than you put into writing it, you're not going to get much help around here. The best way to learn to write well is to practice trying. Do us a favor and translate your first "paragraph" into some sort of understandable thought.

You're not going to be spoon fed on the massive quantity of problems that you're going to run into if you buy the turbo "kit" you linked and expect it to be bolt-on power.

Do yourself a favor and start here:

And if you want a complete "kit" without mechanical skills, start here:
Flyin' Miata

Or for less expense, but added mechanical ability requirements:
BEGI

Ok I want to buy a miata. What I want to put in it is turbo, exhaust, cam, pistons, suspension, roll cage, new paint, lip kit, rims, and big brakes. I want it done right. I've seen the BEGI kit and I think that will be my best bet. Now at about 15-17 PSI what is the estimated rwhp for a 90-93 1.6L? Besides the turbo kit do you guys have any other suggestions about parts' pistons,cams, etc? If i get the BEGI would it be a good idea to beef up the trans? Now if i had mechanically experience what should I do turbo wise thats not over $2k?
Is that a little better?

Please try to type like an adult if you're going to stick around here. You can ask a neighbor for help if anything.

Better, but you still need to do your own research. One thing I've learned is that if you're spoon fed something, you never really learn it. I'm so good with cars because I did my own research, I learned how things worked and how they all work together, I didn't come in and ask which parts to buy and why, I figured it out on my own. It took a couple of tries but I finally got it right, and because of that I know more than if I had simply asked what to buy.

15-17psi? You're joking, right?

$2,000 can easily get you 15-17psi...

...once

The first problem is: If you're telling us your goal is "PSI", we can immediately tell that the maturity on your knowledge of turbo systems does not exceed that of an average high schooler. If this is the case, we strongly recommend against you buying a miata and turbocharging it. You'll blow the welds on your intake manifold.

Since you really want information in terms of PSI, fine then, I'll play. These numbers are for someone with somewhat limited DIY ability, as well as the requirement to have a setup that won't have you replacing engines at shorter intervals than changing oil.

Killiger, if you can't budget at LEAST $3000-4000 to run 07psi, then you don't need to try.

$5000-8000 will put you in the 12psi region

When you start looking at 15psi and above, you're going to need to budget $10k MINIMUM.

If you really think you're going to make 15-17psi on a 2k budget, I highly recommend that you grab your lower lip, pull it over your head, and swallow.

And what the **** is a "rims"?

Go buy a comprehensive book on turbocharging and read it - SERIOUSLY - it will give you more HP per Dollar than ANY MOD EVER BUILT.

Once you're done reading the book on turbocharging, do some research on the limitations of the Miata so that you know what you're getting into.

The vast wealth of knowledge you need to have before you buy your first part should be equivalent to below in college semester hours:
Modern Engine Theory: 3 hours
Automotive drivetrain mechanics: 1 hour
Basic Forced Induction: 4 hours
Basic automotive tuning: 4 hours

Once you've installed everything, it's time to go back to school:
Advanced F/I and Theory: 8 hours
Advanced Automotive Tuning: 8 hours

Your parents shouldn't have spoiled you and bought you that shiny G6 and sent you to a tutor.

Does anyone else wonder if people like this actually don't know how to speak English in an intelligible way or if they're just really lazy? If the prior, then I feel better about myself and bad for this retard.

Flow = Power. Not psi. I run 15psi right now. For about 3k actually. Anyone on here could tell you, I researched, read a turbocharging book. Asked and took advice. Listened to the people that did it, then started collecting parts. It doesn't happen over night, and I just don't think a guy like you, Who has yet to show intelligence could boost a car for 2k, especially not to the desired "boost" level. Hell, You could put a restictor infront of your TB and you would measure 20 psi all day. When it comes down to it, It is how much air actually makes it in the engine.
