2000 Mazda Miata Turbo

This Miata was here for a PSI custom turbo kit.

For this specific kit we used a Garret GT2871R, Tial MV-S wastegate, Tial 50mm BOV,

and a custom  PSI turbo manifold.  Unlike a lot of the aftermarket turbo manifolds for this car, ours fits with the PS and AC pumps.  We also fabricated custom chargepipes and downpipe. 

It was then fitted with a custom AEM series 2 engine management system including air intake temp, wideband and map sensors. Using these along with upgraded fuel injectors we were able to conservatively tune the car to 229hp and 188ft/lbs of torque to the wheels  at 10lbs of boost.

To help get the new power to the ground, we also installed an ACT clutch and lightweight flywheel.  Along with Tein street advanced coilovers and  Eibach front and rear sway bars.  To finish it all off we gave it a complete four wheel suspension alignment.
