Emissions legal everywhere in the US! CARB EO D-601-3. The only truly CARB emissions legal turbo available for the 1.8!
Easy installation of safe and clean power. Our Stage 1 turbo system - previously known as the Voodoo II - is ideal for someone looking for an easy installation, good horsepower, no emissions hassles and lots of upgrade potential. It shares the same hardware as the FM II, but with a simplified fuel management setup. Expect approximately 175 hp at the rear wheels, compared to a stock 100 hp. This is limited by the size of the stock injectors. The intercooler means that you will keep all of your horsepower no matter how hard you run your car.
All of our turbo kits use the same basic hardware for super easy upgrade-ability. Every part has been designed taking performance, durability and installation ease into consideration. The advantage to this is that the Stage 1 can painlessly be upgraded to full FM II status. It also means that even the less expensive kits get the same quality parts as the high-end ones. We don't believe there is a better (or more complete) turbo system available. With our kits, you won't be making extra trips to the hardware store for nuts and bolts; every part you need is included.
However, you won't necessarily feel the need to upgrade. The Stage 1 ekes as much power as possible out of the stock injectors without resorting to mechanical tricks such as high fuel pressure. There's no tuning and no need to install high-pressure fuel pumps or bother with fuel lines at all. The car simply makes smooth, effortless power without a fuss.
Fuel management is handled by our own Voodoo Box, which uses the stock injectors to deliver more fuel. Because it only modifies the signal under boost, the car acts completely stock at idle and cruise. Tuning is a quick and simple process.
The turbo is a GT2560R, which is a great match to the Miata engine at this boost level. It makes just as much boost down low as a smaller unit, but without choking off the top end.
Along with this turbo system, you will need a new clutch. Cars that see track use or are in hot climates will also require a radiator upgrade.
The downpipe may or may not fit with your automatic transmission. We've seen mixed results. We cannot guarantee fitment with an automatic.
