Default HKS turbo kit REbuild and introduction

hello everyone, my name is mike and i live in northern california in a town called stockton. i just thought i would share my REbuild with you guys as i go through it. i am using an older hks kit that came on a parts car i picked up last year, during this process i will be installing many other components.

they include-
type1 lsd
koni yellow struts
ground control coilovers
cobalt guages
remote start/ security
lighted rearview mirror
dual exhaust
custom flush headlights

I will also be doing a couple other important things like swapping in a 29k mileage NB VICS motor (nothing special or uberbuilt, just a run of the mill nb 1.8) and swapping in a 5 speed where there used to be an automatic.

this all happened because a uhaul truck hit my now deemed parts car which was supposed to be my dd and now i am literally working backwards to put everything on my old parts car. these are both NA 1.8 miatas, i will post plenty of pictures as soon as photobucket uploads them all.

a while back i posted on miata.net about an issue with this turbo but i have since sorted that out and have decided to come over to the turbo side of forum life. i look forward to getting to know all of you here.

mike

@pitlab77 i'm not sure... i bought the car secondhand and just stripped it... it has a small fracture in the mani that does not go all the way through. i should have the time to post my progress sometime next week.
