About FM turbo systems
We believe you can't find a better off-the-shelf turbo system than one from Flyin' Miata. We've worked for years to fine-tune production and design to make them as painless and strong as possible.
The hardware in our turbo systems was designed to be powerful, of course. We paid careful attention to flow in everything from our manifolds to the turbine outlet casting and intercooler. But there's more than just power required for a good forced induction system. They have to last, and they have to fit. Computer aided design and manufacturing helps here.
We went to a wide variety of suppliers for our components. This allowed us to pick the best people in every area. For example, our downpipes are built by Thermal R&D and bent on a robotic mandrel bender to ensure a level of consistency and accuracy that is difficult to achieve with a hand-built part. They even have a lifetime warranty! Sheetmetal parts are laser-cut and accurately bent for a consistent fit, while the custom-formed silicone hoses save weight and ease installation.
A high level of attention to detail continues throughout. All the fasteners are high-quality units, from custom-built ARP Inconel studs to two-piece Nordlock washers to prevent loose connections. The water feed hoses are a reinforced silicone design that offers excellent resistance to heat without the vulnerability to cuts found on normal silicone hose. Slip-on heat shield is included for all water and oil hose. The hose clamps are both strong and difficult to strip.
Meanwhile, we don't take parts out of our kits just to make them less expensive. If we think something is needed, it's included. That's why all of our kits include bypass valves and boost gauges, for example. We also use the same high-quality materials on all our kits instead of downgrading the least expensive ones.
You get the idea. Basically, we've taken our experience of turbocharging Miatas over more than two decades and applied it to all of the hardware.
Only Flyin' Miata can offer emission-legal boost for any year Miata in the form of the Stage 1 kit. That's right, power and no emissions concerns - even in California.
Depending on what you do for engine management and what turbo you select, you can make 350 hp or more at the wheels with our custom spec. Since the Stage 1 uses the same hardware, you can upgrade it from the standard power level to considerably more without any worries.
Every FM turbo system comes with the full lifetime support of Flyin' Miata for the original purchaser.
Flyin' Miata has been dealing with turbocharged Miatas for as long as there have been turbocharged Miatas. We're still driving our own little red Miata that we turbocharged in January of 1990. We've lost track of how many turbos we've installed, and we've supported customers all over the world as they did the work themselves. We're still supporting systems that we sold in the early 1990s! Since we designed the whole kit, we know it inside and out.
