Exclamation Turbo Kit recommendation

Hi guys

I bought a 90's Miata 1.6 recently for racing, because I went to track for one time with my friend's BMW M3 and AUDI RS5. These car are incredible, so I just want a manual shift car for fun.

I don't have any experience about modification so I read lots of threads. There are BEGA VOODOO CXRacing..... I even don't know should I get new suspension and breaks.

I know I'm a complete noooooooob, so I don't want buy bunch of stuffs at same time. Maybe 200 whp is enough for me? I have 4-5K budget.

How should I spend money for my car?

Thanks

Alright, who's been making phony accounts today?
This can't possibly be a real post.

I hope I never get bored enough to take the time and effort to make a new account just to troll a forum.

OP should get a big break kit so he can break his car so hard.

and is that a chrome gauge hood? does it ever blind you from the suns reflection?

I'm going to assume you're not a troll and just want to spend $$$ on a tried and trusted kit that just works.

If this is the case, see Flyin' Miata : the turbo kits

You can build your own kit cheaper but for mimimum hassle, FM is the way to go if you're not a DIYer.

Thank you so much!!! But the car's mileage is 110K. Do i need to rebuild engine before installing turbo? Which kit is better? Voodoo Or BEGI/ alpha??

Hahaha! Funny guy!

Read the stickies in all of the subsections of this forum and read a few build threads to figure out the best plan for you. Usually, suspension, brakes (yes, this is the proper English spelling of the word), and an aftermarket ECU precede adding a turbo for a track car.

The people here are screwing with you because they perceive you as being too lazy to use the search function or to read the other 523 times someone asked a similar question within the last 365 days. This place is a huge repository of knowledge but the natives expect you to put a little work into it yourself.

If you want a total hassle free kit, order BEGI's new alpha-omega kit. They're in production now, so I'm sure it'll be ready for install within a couple weeks. They're known for quick shipping, fantastic support, and having everything right. the. first. time.

You might consider standing on the corner and asking people for their 1.8.




You HAVE to be a troll. There's just no way you can NOT be a troll.

Show us a picture of your car with your username written on a piece of paper.

Otherwise, troll.
