Have you fitted one with a dump yet? Just curious if the dump tube will interfere with the O2 and WB?

it will not interfere. i plan to do the dump tube this week. i have been busy putting a clutch in the miata last week. if it is not able to go straight down as pictured i will put a bend in to move the dump tube away from the o2's. that will be no big deal.

Sorry for the noobish questions, I'm trying to get a turbo on my car and I'm trying to find the best (and hopefully cheapest kit) I can find.

Would this kit affect the exterior of the car in any way? (besides being able to see the intercooler through the front bumper.)

Would I need to move the car battery to the back or will it be possible to reinstall it in the front afterwards.

And lastly, What other parts would I need to complete my turbo set-up (boost controller? Boost timer? gauges?)

Thanks

You won't need to move the battery just cut a joke on inner fender wall

weather or not you have to move the battery with my kit will depend on the type of air filter you run on the turbo. the cold side charge piping will clear the batter. it requires you to cut a small section of the inner fender behind the headlight. it can not be seen once the pipe is installed and if cut cleanly wouldnt be noticed if the kit was removed later.

the intercooler is the only thing you will be able to see from outside the car. i may be able to get the intercooler in black if your looking to hide it

this kit is not a complete kit it simply comes with the parts the have be fabricated to install a turbo such as manifold, downpipe, wastegate pipe, intercooler piping, intercooler, couplers, oil lines, oil pan, maf housing. it would require you to get a turbo, wastegate, blow off valve, fueling, tuning, gauges. this allows people to go as cost effective or high end as they choose and maybe save money getting some parts used.

a boost controller or turbo timer are not required to run a turbo on any car. a boost controller is only necessary if your going for very high boost levels that cannot be attained by simply changing the wastegate spring. a turbo timer isnt necessary at all IMO b/c its only job is to let the car run after you shut it off to cool the turbo. how often are you shutting the the car off after boost with out letting it run a couple minutes any way. you never do a wot run down the drag strip and shut it off as soon as you cross the line

Okay awesome and what type of turbo should I get? I've seen a lot of Foci with T3/T4 turbos.

What type of air filter would you recommend?

I've been doing a lot of research and been getting a lot of mixed messages and you seem to be the person who is most knowledgeable.
