I'm all for pushing the development of turbo bits for NC's. More options = better for the consumer.

So I did some scouring of the web, and only found T2X type turbos on NC's. I keep hearing that the EFR won't fit well due to packaging constraints. I did find one example of an EFR mounted in an NC. It was fabbed by a shop in Marietta Georgia (Killshot).

EFRs on Miatas are on the cutting edge period no matter what body style.

As of this moment I don't believe there is a cast iron log manifold that supports an EFR on our cars. I doubt there are more than a dozen EFR Miatas in existence.

I look forward to the day that the GT series turbo kit is looked upon how we currently view the Greddy kits. Not bad by any means, but not the current bar for performance as it is set today.

Darn, I sure went to a lot of trouble to avoid building a log manifold. Wish I had known at the time.

Same story regarding a remote gate.

Small update, ended up deciding to go with a GTX3076R with a Tial V-band housing (.82). Hoping to get the manifold situation worked out in the next couple of weeks.

Turbo is with the fabricator. I travel 3 weeks every month so it'll be slow going. I will post updates as they occur.
