Default Turbo Charged Mazda Miata. Pictures inside. See i can do more than subaru's

This is a 91 Mazda Miata. It had a Fast Miata turbo kit but the turbo went out so he decided to go big. The motor was recently rebuilt so its healthy. The turbo is a Garret T3/T4 with a .50 ar on the compressor and a .48 ar on the exhaust side. I had to make a small adapter from the turbo to the manfold. I still have to make the turbo bracket, intercooler piping, and downpipe. I drove it with the last turbo with 6 psi and it was extremely fast. He then drove it around for a month on 12 psi and that ended the 7 year old turbo. Hopefully now with 6 psi it should be faster then the other turbo with 12. Here are the mods

Rebuilt engine
1.8 Clutch
Tein Coilovers
Momo Seat
Wilwood Brake Controller
Strut bars
Sway bars
Roll Cage
Flying Miata Turbo Kit
Garret T3/T4 modified to fit
Mandrel Bent 2.5 " down pipe
Link ECU
370 Injectors
Phillips HID's
Koyo Radiator

In Japan I got to ride in a guys turbo Miata that was running a big HKS turbo, huge FMIC, Rebic with 2 extra injectors. Those things scary when turbo'd.



Used to run a old Mazda Familia with a GTX drivetrain swap. Put an Evo3 FMIC, Skyline turbo on it and ran the crap out of it. I miss humiliating the Honda crowd with that little POS.

That's cool , but it begs the question, how the hell are you gonna run the compressor outlet? 90' elbow or something?

I've got the same turbo with a Bell/FM IV kit except it has an external wastegate. Nice work on the fabrication. If you make one that works with the FM-2 (T28) kits you'd probably sell a bunch.

Only problem I see is injectors - he'll need bigger ones pretty quick. I'm maxing out my 550cc's at 18 psi on a built 1.8L, same Link engine management.

.

The Rebuilt motor has 25k on it, and we yanked the the valve cover to have that painted and the valve-train looked extreamly clean as well.

i was soooooooo close to selling my RS to buy a miata and turbo it a month or so ago. I just don't think i can sell my RS and have enough money to build a miata with suspension, turbo, wheels/tires etc. i really want one.

B'ah... you live way the hell over in California. That shoots my plans completely to fecal matter. I was thinkin' a midnight motor swap would be in my car's future.

Looks good... looks very good...

why didn't you go with a tubular manifold? and why the 2.5" DP. also why internal wastegate?



yup, that's a 3rd gen Rx-7 alacantara seat. From the R1 model. pretty rare and sought after.

We decided not to go with the tubular manifold because we are doing this on a budget. We felt that we did not need such a crazy manifold for the job. Adapting to the old manifold was easier. We went with the internal wastegate because it was cheaper. As for the downpipe goes:

Corkey Bell states that you only need to go 10% over the exhaust wheel size for the downpipe. Many can argue but i always trust what he says.

This entire project with garrett turbo, lines, fittings, downpipe, adapter, intercooler piping, coolant, and synthetic motor oil only cost $1000. I would have to say thats pretty cheap.
