You have the biggest plug wires i've ever seen on a miata.
What in the hell are they?
Nice radiator and the piping looks good.

Thanks, those are Nology Hotwires. Not exactly made for our cars, but it fits.

Since I am running Air Con, the intercooler piping was really tricky. For many, went with the route of clocking their turbo shooting down and running pipe from under frame rail. I do not see how that could be achieved with all the AC pipings. I had to settle for the old route, and that was a shame.

Next is to relocate the AFM and air filter... that's going to be hard to fit.

Let me know when you do that. It would be great if we could relocate the filter behind our intake lid.

Its really going to be a tight fit, but I see how I could go at it.

I am now waiting for a smaller airfilter to arrive and try test fitting it soon.


Also, does anyone know the diameter of the turbo intake size? and the AFM size. Definitly those are different diameter, need to find a silicone couping to fit both ends.
