Car/Model/Engine/Year: Mazda Mx6 LS KLDE 93

Method of forced induction used: Ebay T3/T04e (Turbo starts to spool at 3K, BOOST at 3.5K)
BoomBop V-Band Top 38mm Wastegate, dump to atmosphere
Blitz Type R BOV

Intercooled or not, type of your choice: Same Side FMIC, 2.25in intercooler piping (PC'd Black)

Fuel mods: Blox 12:1 FMU, Millenia S injectors, and Aeromotive FPR

Engine/tranny mods: Stock internals, 6puck XTD clutch, 2.5 inch turbo back with a Jeff Jeske Resonated Test pipe and a 4 inch WB sensor pipe (goes downpipe, WB sensor pipe, Resonated Test pipe and 2.5in test pipe back)

Special features on your system: instead of rewelding the downpipe like 95% of people end up doing... I went out there and added 4 inches of piping and added a WB bung so everything has Exhaust flanges so if i wreck or sell the car i can sell a complete 3 piece exhaust with wideband sensor pipe which allows you to just bolt everything up and go w/o having to reweld anything...

Performance: Not sure yet but ill post dyno pics/numbers soon...

Was it hard to come up with this: Was pretty hard for being a first time I've EVER put on a turbo kit before...

What is your knowledge about cars: I know the KLDE/KLZE like the back of my hand... Rebuilt and installed a couple already...

How long did it take to build your system: I'd say it took 3 days to get everything perfectly in... but a few more days to finish everything up...

How much money have you spent on this all: USD $1800

What is your advice for people who wants to get boosted: Make sure you have EVERYTHING before starting to put everything together... you will have many endless runs to shops if you dont...

The system is getting better. And I just thought this would reduce the amount of people asking the same questions time after time.

Hi...
I'm from Trinidad and tobago and I just bought a 1993 MX-6 with the KF 2.0 V6. I have no idea as yet if it is a KFZE or a KFDE. I am planning to turbocharge my car. I just wanna know if the KL's Exhaust manifold is the same as the KF. I've searched online and my search has always retunred 93-97 MX-6/ Probe 2.5 V6. Would it work on my KF???

Performance:

Was it hard to come up with this:

- I researched every facet of this project for two years before attempting anything on it. Once i got started, it was fun and a good learning experience for me and my dad.

How long did it take to build your system:

- I did it slowly over probably 6 months. Would have been faster if I didnt make a how-to video for each step!

What is your knowledge about our cars:

- I started with just replacing the rear vcg, but now I know how to do everything, I'm only 20 right now, so this is pretty cool. I didnt know much, now I know more than most. Ive also done some crazy custom things no one else has done.

How much money have you spent on this all:

- About 1.8k so far. I made a thread on the prices of things.
https://www.mx6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=250020

What is your advice for people who wants to get boosted:

- its a long trip that will teach you how to do everything there is to do on this car. Make sure you have a car to drive while youre working on this one because nothing ever goes to plan. Took me a month just to get it running after i finished installing parts! Its tons of fun, but youll have to get your hands dirty! Watch all my how to videos! Also, do your clutch before you Turbo. You have to remove all the turbo components to replace the clutch!
