Default Pics of a 'stock' greddy kit installed

I know the stock word doesnt really fit here, but I was wondering if anyone has pics of their install - using only the parts included with the Greddy kit.

Im planning a 2 stage install -
Stage 1 - Greddy kit, o2 clamp, bipes, injectors, exhaust

Stage 2 - IC, fuel pump, MBC, BOV

If any of you guys see an issue, or a suggestion to make my job a little easier - Id appreciate it.

The car is a '90, fresh big-nose engine, otherwise all stock. Im hoping to eventually see 175 at the tires.

Ben - I have 2 questions
1.Where can I get a bowser heat shield - I have new paint on the car & would hate to mess it up - I have seen many people mention the bowser shield - but never found one
2.Whats the thing on the passenger side below the Vortech FPR??
Looks like a battery or something?

Thanks for the pic - just what I wanted to see.

1. Flyin Miata
2. ABS

Get the shield. The paint on my hood turned chaulky before getting the shield. Someone I know's hood showed signs of warping.

you should turbo the mustang instead. otherwise your miata will be faster than the stang, and wouldn't that be funny?

Making a 03 mustang fast is easy - Kenne Belle - But its expensive...

On the drag strip there isnt much that can touch it thats still a daily driver like mine.
On the street - I had a guy in a beat up 89 Accord that I couldnt pull away from...

Just dont get next to me and run me from a stop - 220hp in a miata from a 50mph start - yeah - you would have something

Just curious, how much horsepower does it take until the steering isn't sloppy?

That was one option I considered, I drove a twin turbo car & a S/C car, I was much happier using the supercharger - I can also make those HP numbers with mine - but my rods are at their limit.

My next step is a $5000 forged rebuild, but thats after im done playing with the miata

how good does a rx7 have to handle till it makes torque and stops blowing up every 50000miles?

But really my dream ride: FD w/LS1

but i'll settle for a turbo miata and an LS1 camaro.

one suggestion, change your "stages" to something more like this:

S1 - Greddy kit, fuel pump, bipes, bov (low boost)

S2 - IC, MBC, 02 clamp, injectors, exhaust (higher boost)

I think you'll come away with a "safe" stage 1 and a "make power" stage 2.

You haven't mentioned your plans for management. E manage? MS? AFPR?

you'll need something to retard timing.
