Default Thinking of WI on my P5

I have a ~40K+ or so boosted on my P5 without an intercooler It's just a little T3 .60/.48.
I'm running ~6psi of boost now, @ 8 the clutch started to slip so I backed her down a tad (new clutch is going in ASAP)
I usually retard my timing qiute a bit to compensate especially in the summer, which hits around July 4-10, before the first frost hits
Originally I wanted a SC, but years ago, none was available, and what is available today is pretty much hack stuff.

Anyway, the DO for less than $200? is pretty attractive. Obviously we get the good windshield washer fluid up here so that isn't a problem. I don't anticipate ever running over 10psi, I only need a couple of hundred HP to cart the kids around. That and the FS rods are weak as **** over 220...

I think the basic kit would fit the bill just fine. I'd be pretty interested in your final results.

For the P5, not the Miata....

IF the MP62 Kit for the Focus could be made to fit the Protege I would have been all over it (JR makes that kit IIRC), There is a 2.0 kit used on the Ford Probe but you have to give up AC, something I'm not going to do with kids...

I will post up pics, once I et the car back... She has it... I've been tied up turbocharging this Hyundai...

First impression, pretty easy to install, If I had rad the directions first I wouldn't have had to move the Pump, but no biggie
