Since so many NICOclub staffers and members own a Miata, here's a spot to discuss the car Nissan wishes it had built!

Ghetto turbo build

In case you guys didn't see this one, its a really entertaining thread. I especially like the random intake snorkels he used for the throttle body and turbo intake.

I'm going to be close.

I bought my turbo, manifold, oilcatch can, downpipe and intercooler for $200. Its this Greddy kit for a 2.0 prelude http://www.kidimports.com/forced-induct ... sp?ref=frg

I'm planning to drill 3 extra holes for the Mazda head and then the manifold works!

I scored a Sebring Supercharges MSD box and the 460cc injectors for $100

I scored a FMU for $15

braineak on turbo Miata talked me into Megasquirt so I'm waiting.

I'm into my car for around $1100, my mom bought me the butterfly brace and roll bar for $150 and the top for $200.

I'll be into the car for under $2000 with it running a megasquirt turbo DIY
