Oh me,me,me... I can't wait to get my Bell S1 Turbo Kit in for my 97 Miata. I got mine with a GT2860RS, Upgraded Intercooler #2, Stainless Steel Downpipe, Megasquirt PNP, and 2.5 inch catless (don't tell my i'm going to have turbo lag from a very restrictive exhaust, near impossible when you consider i'm using a turbo muffler and no cat.) Enthuza Exhaust...

No 1. and only reason to love alabama.

Lol, as long as your car doesn't heap gobs of smoke, you can run a catless exhaust and law enforcement will not be concerned...

Reason why I hate Alabama...

Mustangs...mustangs, Z28's, Camaros, 1/4 mile. Isn't there more to life than Ford Mustangs and Camaros, and making fun of me because I drive an "import" car?

The kit looks great, I'm loving all the stainless. The only thing that looks a little strange is the BOV recirc tube couplers. Are they the wrong size or just too long?

I bought all new couplers to match the rest of the engine...they are a little different in thickness and size...so i will probably switch those back to the kit ones. When it comes down to it...I like the clean looks..but performance outweighs looks by a mile (tried to get the best of both worlds)

Thanks for the input everyone

Looks great man! You can straighten out the logo on the Mazdaspeed oil cap by accessing a set screw on the side of the body. Once loose, you can rotate the top to where you want it and retighten.

Welcome to the S3 club.

I to polished the intake manifold. Go is important but looking good never hurts.

NO...I wanted to take the pic before I quit for the day...I still have a few more things to "button" up before I turn key. You would be surprised how many little details that you miss after staring at the engine hour after hour. Take a break and it all comes into focus
