Thumbs up New to the game

Hey Guys

I am new to the miata group, looking to do a track/street build 70% track and 30% street. Starting with a NA miata my end goal is 230-250hp with a supercharger. Still looking at different choices on a supercharger setup. I am leaning to words the Jackson SC but still need to do some research. Do you guys have any subjection on a S/C with bang for the buc in mind as well power. Thanks guys

Don't use the JRSC. Turbo that maaa. You could achieve your hp goal with the same turbo I am running, you'll get better mileage; it'll just be an all around more efficient car. If you're worried about "lag"? There is none.

lol thanks for the heads up, my builds in the past were sr powered s13 and a 450hp gsx dsm. It seems that everyone loves to turbo the NA's and SC the NB's. I do not want to do a motor swap, i like the 1.6 and 1.8's.

You can get to your power goals on a stock block and a small turbo. Trust me, I've done it. My engine is stock internally and I made 225 whp with a cheap journal bearing t25.
