MBC = Manual Boost controller...it's not needed but they are nice. Electronic are better. So you can adjust your boost setting without replacing the wastegate spring

MAFia helps your stock MAF sensor properly read the increased amount of air flow from the turbo.

You will need:
Research
Downpipe
3" MAF Housing
MAFia
Oil Feed/Return Lines
Manifold
Downpipe
Wastegate
Wastegate Dump tube
Intercooler
Intercooler Piping
Couplers/Clamps
BOV
60lb Injectors
Kenne Bell BAP
Boost Gauge
Wideband A/F Gauge
J&S System + Gauge
Updgraded Clutch (stg 3 or more probably)
LSD
Flywheel

Don't get into a turbo build without understanding what you are doing and planning everything out. It will just result in headaches and more money being spent. And finally don't cheap out on things if you can, buy new over used, etc. In the end boost is totally worth the work.

Sorry I don't know anything about the OBX mani.

whats Kenne Bell BAP?
BAP = Boost-a-Pump. It helps boost your fuel pressure as the boost increases. Although Tom said he found a way to get by without one, it's still a good thing to have just in case. You don't want to be going WOT and have the fuel pressure drop off around 4.5k rpm.

+1 for Toms turbo kit and tuning. I have everything in that list above on my car. Making 326 at 20psi. Obviously of you want to run less you can.

THe DIY kit from Tom is great to start with, it lays the best possible foundation for a quality kit and leave plenty of flexibility. I also have the Comp turbo Tom uses. Its a great turbo!!!

haha... maybe that's what the CX in "CX-7" means..... they use the CX turbo (lol i don't think so, but now I am curious what kind it uses) maybe when I'm bored I'll take the engine cover off of the mazda and see what's really under there. I know it's a 2.3L duratec [thumb]

Does Toms DP replaces the cat too Orange??? If not an ORP seems a pretty logical question.....
