I agree and I dont plan to waste money to do it.

If I don't understand it, I just won't do it, thanks for your advice

lol, ok I will stop searching,,lol

Heres the deal, I have read alot of information, But very little information is linear, bits and pieces all over. also most of it seems to be explained in terms of discussions between mechanics.

I am looking for turbo 101, 102, 103, doesnt seem to be much of it that I can identify with. lol.. just take my time and go sloooow..lol

First steps would be power goal and budget.
I would suggest a power goal south of 250.

I would honestly be Happy with 150 to 180 and not worry about blowing something up.

budget??? I have no desire to spend 4G's its not that important to me. I would rather buy another Miata with 4 g's

so honestly I dont know, its one reason why I need a better understanding

what you will need to accumulate
Exhaust Manifold
Turbo
Downpipe
+ full exhaust
Injectors
Engine Management
Intercooler
Wideband o2
Boost Gauge
Various hoses, clamps, bolts, gaskets
I know im forgetting stuff, but a basic list is a good start. the bolded things all have to be in conjunction with each other.
Miataturbo will be your best friend, comb the classifieds for people selling ther kits and you can do it fairly cheap.

this should help, keep in mind it's REALLY old data that i posted years back.


I wwas going to link to the very basic BEGi shanghai kit, but the site appears to be down. that's as intro-base of a kit you can get. would surely meet your goals and set you up for further improvements as you learn.
