    www.ovtuned.com (contact us) I'm pretty sure he mentioned on the mazda3tuning group FB page he could tune the mirage ecu as I had asked about it.most pre 16 "new gen" mazdas have Mitsubishi ECU's (now using DEnso). I don't know of any other page the owner runs, aside form the "ovtuned" fb page, but this group is run by him and a lot of tuning talk goes on here. He's been known to give deal/fre tunes to new ecu dumps. I got a deal for being the first to dump him a ecu file from my engine when it was brand new to the market. https://www.facebook.com/groups/535363713253123/

    Hey, how did things progress with this build? working on my own turbo build, slowly coming together, have a Mitsubishi TF035 journal bearing turbo to use and have already installed the FIC 6, making a simple steam pipe manifold like yours, made my own flange too.

    be keen to hear how you progressed.

    Welcome to the forum, moonchook87!

    Are you documenting your build? Going to start a thread? You would have a lot of very interested Mirage owners following it.

    cheers

    Yeah will probably throw it up on here when it gets in full swing, got a steady flow of parts coming in, hoping to have turbo manifold, and oil feed and drain all sorted in the next few weeks, got a weld in bung for the sump (gonna time its install for my 75,000km oil change) and a bunch of AN fittings in the mail at the moment. I'm hoping to basically make my own bolt-on turbo kit because its my daily driver, hardest part at the moment is I have no garage to work out of so its a pain pulling bits off and on in the street but luckily I've got access to a welder and other workshop tools at work.

    There are several owners who have installed turbos on their Mirages. However, they haven't provided a ton of info on how they've gone about it.
