New to turbo mx5s but had plenty of turbod car over the years.
Owner said it had an ebay t28 onit...which seemed to me a big turbo...my 200sx had a t25 if memory serves me right flanges are the same...

Ive retired my rx7fd from tracj duties and sold my Rx8 powered westfield as to valuable in £ and what that car means to me....
