Default Car is NOT starting, and I just got it done!

Well, I got my turbo put on the new car.
new set up (as of right now)
I put on the green tops
and a new ic and ic piping kit that had to be custom welded on one side.
Stock fuel pump
Fmu with a 6:1 disc
Greddy bov (that leaks a little at idle, not sure if its suppose to do that, its the purple bov)
and uhm..i think thats it.
Just earlier i had to change out leaky injector o rings, so i know its getting fuel
Idunno whats wrong... I checked all connections and piping.
any suggestions?

Tell that to the people who've been doing it (or using spools) for fifty years. If all you want to do is get sideways and have shitty handling (drifting, which IS stupid by the way...) then a welded diff will not only work great, it'll be indestructible.

If you want to do anything other than drag racing and Dukes of Hazard moves then the welded diff simply is not a good idea. A fully locked diff will make you look like a hero to the ladies though.

I think you should get another Miata and try again. Third time's a charm.
