Default Just ordered Bell Engineering S1 Turbo Kit!

After a long wait, I have finally ordered my Bell Engineering S1 Turbo Kit with MegaSquirt PNP, Garrett GT2860RS, Stainless steel downpipe and soon to be a complete turbo exhaust! I am aiming for 250 horsepower in my Miata. Can't wait to get it in.

WOHOO!!!! Good for you man, I'll be following in your footsteps. More details if you don't mind. What year is your car, and what did you add / remove from the kit to customize it.

Did you order an intercooler because the only place your aiming without one is 180.

congrats, almost have mine together, just waiting for the MSPNP. I am like a little kid on xmas eve, i cant wait for it to get here. The fit and finish was very nice on the install, it the performance is anything like the parts, this thing should be very nice. And for a non-mechanic, it went together fairly easy, not much I had to do except follow directions. I have a 94 and I think the only fitament issue I had was the cold air box was rubbing on the turbo intake pipe coming off the filter, so I just grabbed a file and trimmed it a tad. I also removed ps/ac so there was plenty of room for oil pan tap.

Sorry to thread jack... but...
Cut a piece of vacuum line about 8-10". Use a blade and slice (longways) into it. You can line the opening of the airbox with it to avoid scrapes and vibration.

I don't know about rubber, but if you use Silicon hose one of these will cut the hose VERY nicely and its safe..


Just a letter opener
