    Turbonium! Looks pretty cool. Little bit of body roll through that corner though. I like the stock Daisies, definitely a sleeper look.

      With a turbo under the hood, that car could not be begging more for some suspension work.

          Looks like a clean install, I need to get a ride in a boosted Miata one of these days.

              I dyno'd it a little over a year ago and had 202hp at the wheels. I havent done much with it since then. The kit started out as a greddy added an intercooler and bipes and an AFPR. Has Racing Mazda down pipe and exhaust, no cat, the exaust is 2 1/2 inches at where the cat should be and after that it opens up to 3 inches. The car even with the turbo is still very loud.

                202whp is very impressive for a 1.6L engine. How's it feel in terms of reliability?

                    Well you see it's like this, when the turbo install was done it was about 10:00 or so at night (this is important) a friend was helping with the install in his shop and one of the last things we installed on the car was a MBC. We had both worked a full day at our jobs and worked on the car at night. After every thing was installed we took the car out for a ride. it was dark and cold (I think it was late March of 2006). The car felt normal until about 4k when it felt like it had a rocket assisted take off booster on it. and it pinged like a son of a gun. we did this a few times before we felt this probably wasn't good but I drove it like this for about two weeks because it was an absolute blast.
                    What we found that we had installed the MBC backwards. I figured that there was at least 17-20psi of boost going into the engine. Never effected it. Right now the car runs about 12-15 psi of boost with no ill effects. No pinging either and since the radiator was replaced with a stock one the car dosetn run hot either.

                    So I would agree with Kurt on this and say this is a tough little engine.
