Default New parts yay!!!!

Hey all,
Just wanted to give everyone a preview of whats going on with my miata in the next 2 weeks. I will update this thread with pictures when i get all of the parts in and after the install
FCM Custom revalved coilovers 450 front 300 rear
Racing Beat Tubular front sway
949 racing endlinks
Kuhmo Ecsta XS 205/50/15, I only have 15x7's for now
New rotors, lines and fluid
Carbotech XP10 front and XP8 rear

I know this is a forum for primary turbo miatas, but i wanted to get everything else taken car of before i go with the begi s4 kit. But i did order a Enthuza 3" exhaust in preparation for the turbo. I should be able to order my turbo by mid July

you should also get your fuel management taken care of before you put turbo in - will make your life MUCH easier.

also, seems like its going to be one of really badass car! congrats!

ps: what are you doing for rollover protection? its one of the most important aspects

I was thinking about going for the M2 Hard Dog Hard Core that fits with the hardtop. That was actually next of the list of things to buy before the turbo because i want to take the care to gingerman once or twice before i turbo it but i have ran out of money for now. Now the fuel management, i have been thinking about picking up a megasquirt, but i figured it would be easier to buy with the kit. Out of curiosity why should i take care of it before? I'm still new at this so bear with me.

it takes time to get it installed and working properly. better to do it before turbo.

Engine management first, then injectors then turbo.
It's so you have a feel for each step of the tuning process and how it changes as you add components.

The thing is i don't plan on tuning the car myself. I have seen the difference that a good tune can do and I feel that it is basis for a all around well performing car so i don't want to mess something up
