    Nice progress!

    How does it drive?

    Drives pretty good, boost comes on around 2-2.5k rpm, 5th has instant pickup, I'm much happier overtaking on the highways how it is now, it's got a bit of surge in the lower load points like partial throttle 2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th as I haven't got the fuelling dialed in 100%, long term fuel trims are about -11 at the moment so have a little way to go.

    Gonna hopefully get a quarter mile run in the next few months once I'm happy with it, thinking I might do springs soon as I already have ultra racing strut bars and rear sway bar to fit.

    I reckon I'm probably $1250- 1500USD into it at the moment. Luckily my labour is free.

    Very nice work. I've been eyeing a local 5sp 2014 mirage for the same thing; too boost it. Would not be boosting in top gear.... especially if it's an OD gear. Good way to grenade your transmission or burn a piston since engine speed is comparatively lower lol. That ECU is tunable as is and I believe it is also tunable for boost... I'd check out www.ovtuned.com you may be able to get yourself a pro remote tune (datalog exchange) and be set!

    In regards to your surging; where is your MAF in relation to your turbo? Is it in front of the compressor inlet or in the charged area? Also if you have a VTA bov try plumbing it to recirculate.. vta messes up your maf reading during the shift with the already metered air.

    He is in Australia. He doesn't have a MAF sensor, just a MAP sensor.

    Then im gonna assume the map is in the charge area for his application.

    I really like this it's alot like what I did for my cx5. Fabbed up a complete rear mount turbo with a SMAW welder with 0 pripr experience lol. Ended up removing it and buoldibg another prototype thats shelved for now. Car is too expensive for me to be experimenting on right now lol
