I still have a 99 green miata. (or I mean my girls. LOL )

She wants it turbo'ed when she graduates this summer. And I'm tired of insurance on 4 cars.

dude the viper spec t56s can be had for under 2 grand and they hold anything. we have one in our 03 cobra shop car and its putting down 960 to the wheels no broken trannies yet. and the ls1 long block itself shouldn't have trouble with 550hp. when i was worjking at race related we did a custom rear mount twin 67mms on a ls2 c6 vette and it made just over 800 to the wheels with a stock long block on 14psi even stock clutch held up for quite a while (possibly because of mass weight reduction). 475whp f body is like a 275hp miata that cant turn or stop.

haha love how the the boost gauge on the website of the remote turbo video is showing 6 psi and then it says "major hp increase" on the next slide.

Also from the looks of it they are running injectors in the back.

6psi on an ls1 is good for around 480-500whp

Well good luck with that kit man, All the comments i've read about the STS have been that its leaking, its crapping out, its flooding due to the fact thats its way way bellow the oil pan and so forth. One person even said it trashed his engine since the kit runs an oil line all the way to the back and then the other way to the front.

1. Leaks.
Yea, that's why I'm installing it myself. Some of that is due to the older kits bottoming out. If mine is hanging low, I'll try to raise it up.

2. Oil Line.
It has a pump inline on the oil line. And I watch my oil guage, and oil levels.

3. Cooling IS Awsome! It not only has the coolest intake temps. I got the HUGE FRONT MOUNT IC with the kit, and Meth Injection.

Now if the guy would take it off his car, and ship it.

He keeps making excuses. But the holiday season only goes so far. I don't know why some people procrastinate.

You sure? From what i know if the turbo is lower than the level of the oil in the oil pan you will be burning oil. I dont know how true that is but thats just something i've read on here.


Keep your eye on the date man, he could be making excuses to run out the clock for u to file that he stole ur money.

if he ships it right away make sure you get a working tracking number, a lot of times they will give u a fake tracking number and say "oh it should work in few hours" just to get paypal to think "oh he shipped it his proof is right there".
