Call begi and discuss your goals... They might be willing to give you a package deal discount if you order the exhaust, clutch, turbo kit, and MSPNP from them. They can also be sure that everything you get is a good fit for your goals and driving type.

if you are going to buy cxracing intercooler then first find it on their site and then search ebay for it because they sell for like 30% less on ebay then they do on their site

Ah so I ordered my Begi S yesterday.

Got it with SS lines, No comp outlet, no TBI tube, WB bung on downpipe, and turbo heatsheild.

Got it with the MSPNP, LC-1 w/ G3.

Now I am going to try to figure out my intercooler from cxracing. What do you guys recommend? I am looking at the 18x12x3. With this, which piping kit should I get from them. Do you think I should do silicon intercooler piping or just pay extra to get nice metal ones welded up. Does it come with mounts?

Search around for "DIY Intercooler" and you'll find lots of ideas. My suspicion of whatever you're looking at from CXR is just a marked-up version of whatever you could buy on eBay. I don't see a "Miata-specific" kit on their listing, meaning you're gonna fab your own mounts and plumbing.

That's it.

Depends. Does your boost need controlling? Stick with the stock wastegate can for now, you can play with boost control later.

Damn. I was hitting 211 today in traffic, and I have a Koyo aluminum radiator. I guess I need to get on that fan mod.
