This is everything you need to build an IC kit for a GReddy kit. I messaged just-intercoolers (sellers name) on ebay and he made a package up for me. I paid about $290 shipped for everything. THere is a DIY somewhere on here as well, that's where I got the photos from.

the one you listed will need just as much if not more modification to work. If you buy what I listed, all you need to do is make a mount for teh IC and get a hacksaw to cut the piping.

Now I'm coming from the 06+ civic Si world. I was ready to boost, in fact almost all my parts are sitting behind me in my room (wishing I was going to install them) but I decided to get a Miata and boost that, and keep the Si as my DD. With that said, I have researched a lot and know a lot about going turbo from an NA motor, but there is always more to learn. The Si guys all buy full pre-made kits, because it's expensive to find a good shop to weld together the charge piping, and there would be too many couplers because of all the bends to get everything to fit. For example: Some piece them together, but most of them are set in stone by manufacturers (Full-Race, JoTech, SSA, AJP, SRT, etc). Tubular manifolds costing around $1k will net you the best flow and absolutely zero boost creep. For example:
Full Race Manifold:
FR04.jpg
FR05.jpg



JoTech Manifold:
DSC00915.jpg
DSC00914.jpg
DSC00912.jpg
DSC00909.jpg
DSC00908.jpg

SSA Manifold:
SSA4.jpg
SSA3.jpg
SSA14.jpg


So what I'm trying to get at is: When turboing a Miata, is it a smarter decision to piece together the best parts individually (FMIC setup, mani, injectors, turbo, etc) or to purchase a kit that's already made?
