    Randy, FWIW:

    If it were me, I'd be looking at FM's Stage 1 with the 10.3 flywheel. That's what I have in the BRG with the smaller turbo, and it's excellent. Pedal feel is great. The light flywheel does take a little getting used to...

    Radiator and coolant reroute, the price of 949's package deal hasn't dropped with the introduction of the new QMax reroute, but their radiator is as good or better than FM's and still almost $100 less expensive. The complete QMax is just shy of $600, but will be the way I go for my next one...

    I don't recall if your setup came with a boost gauge or Air/Fuel gauge... but if Adam is doing gauges for you, I'm pretty sure he can do faces for some of those, too.. I don't recall which ones. AEM maybe? I went with Speedhut for my boost gauge, the needle and lettering match my OE gauges perfectly, the lighting is a different shade of green, but not bad.

    Prepping for the turbo installation took longer than installing the system and tuning it. Lots of planning and forethought involved, otherwise you chase your own tail.

    Just another $.02. I've been talking to both 949 and FM on cooling options and got an honest point of view from Dan on the Supermiata radiator vs FM's cross flow. Essentially he said that on track and with proper ducting 949's has lots of cooling and is several pounds lighter (and cheaper). 949 typically delete the AC fan and only use one OEM fan in their race cars. However he did say that for a street car in traffic, or with poor airflow management (AC, no ducting, no hood vents) a larger radiator and upgraded fans might be prudent.

    Given that I've decided to add the Qmax along with FM's stage 1 rad and fans.

    What can I say here, Adam @ Revlimiter.net is THEE MAN when it comes to custom gauges. I have seen his work on some other nice cars in the bay area, however this is my first time seeing his brand NEW Version (Generation 3) gauges in person. Wow, this new version is just spectacular in person, with the wrinkle finish, richer colors, better lighting, and more depth in the numbers, and a more durable material he is using now, its just crazy how great these look!!

    All I can say is do yourself a favor and go buy some Revlimiter gauge faces now, dont think about it any longer! If you have older REV faces, or Dewa faces, just sell them and buy his new version, you cannot go wrong!!

    I tried to take photos of mine, but heck even Adam's photos dont do these faces justice, you really have to see these in person!! Thank you Adam for such a great product for our Miatas!!

    Whoa.

    Shout-outs to Adam: his gauges in my car (currently a one-of-a-kind) are one of the biggest reasons I didn't get rid of it after the accident

    This is one of the kindest things I've ever read about my gauges. I'm humbled. Thank you.

    It's not an exaggeration in the least.
