Default Turbo in a box

Used T28 turbo from CX-racing with little to no shaft play.

"Special design" downpipe from Flyin Miata back in the day, I MADE IT FIT the car after welding a new flange on it to connect to the extra special mounting suface that CX-racing designed for their turbos.

All the fitting that you should need to make it all work.

Also a Greddy downpipe elbow for no reason at all.

WHAT YOU SEE IN PICS IS WHAT YOU GET!


All for $250 shipped to your front door, or your work if the wife doesn't approve of your spending more money on the car

Did you ever have this installed? How did it run? I'm new to turbo's. So, I'm prepared for the **** I'll receive after asking this, but a few Q's, Is the turbo a CX-Racing Turbo? and I Have a 1.6L Will this change anything as far as fitment goes?

This was my first turbo setup with all the bandaids, but I have since moved on to bigger and better things. The turbo from cx-racing is a decent turbo for the cost but has a goofy mount for the exhaust, it is almost like a garret mount except the placement of the mounting bolts are off a touch. To make this work, since cx-racing could not supply a down pipe with this mounting goofiness, I made my own flange and chopped of the one I had on a flyin miata down pipe. I will also ship the old flange along with most of the parts to get you all plumbed up with a turbo (oil/water). This is a great starter package for some with little cash to throw at it.

Yeah no need for a manifold, any fuel control, nor intake piping. 100% bolt ons for easy power.

No my question is if everything comes with it like a turbo, turbo manifold, down pipe, intercooler pipings, oil/water lines, and stuff like that.

I am interested in this. Just bought a 1991 miata and wish for some more power lol. Does this have everything needed to get me going or will I need more stuff? Like could I just bolt all this stuff up and be good to go or need tuning and injectors, etc...

Added pics!!!

You still need a manifold and fuel management, plus some other goodies depending on your goals. Please look at the stickies on the main page for all your answers to making a turbo miata. These parts are just a piece of the puzzle you will need to build a turbo miata, the rest can probably be found on the classified section here

Yes it definitely comes with all of those things not mentioned in the OP.
