I understand your thoughts. I have shared them myself. ****, I have even said the same on here lol.
I have also considered picking up another MX-5 and tossing the turbo in it instead....

But, the iA is my project car. So, hey... I need to push the lines and see what we can do.

I've heard we should be fine under 10 PSI of boost. I'm aiming for half that.

Worst case scenario... I'll bulk up the motor more to withstand the abuse.
I have the header/manifold design written up. I just ordered a new cartridge for the turbocharger.
I am not pleased with the oil build up in the used one. So, I am making progress.
Also, I have decided to keep the scroll speed to a minimum and allow for high air cooling...
I will be fabricating a new hood.
That's my next step. Raise the bay and create a crossbeam to mount the toys to.
I'll keep you all posted as I make progress... but I'm not rushing it.
