Erm. You mean that one where we all recommend fast and fun budget cars. And you buy the slowest one, that needs more than simple tweaks to make power? Then ask for recommendations to improve said slow car. Are told how they do it in the Mazda homeland. Ignore sound advice for a 2nd time. And start on with made in china bolt on turbo kits, not knowing the associated hidden costs and mods to make a N/A car turbo reliably? -injectors, ecu,fuel system,tuning costs, fabrication and exhaust costs?
You will be 6-7k deep into engine mods before you know it. My recs come out to about 3.5k. By the time you get to the cost of running turbo, the car would be a complete package.
If you think a Miata with a bolt on turbo and cheap clutch at 210hp, will feel and drive like a completely refined N/A miata at 150+hp?
Feel free to be the guinea pig.
But then again, i suggested an sw20 mr2,mk3 supra, and a z32/z31 fairlady. They all have turbos.Edited by Thrift Vader - 9/25/16 at 7:44am
