no offense man but open your eyes.. there are people running them, selling them, cursing them, and enjoying them everywhere on here..

1) dont buy them direct.. yada yada the owners are shady blah blah
2) haltech is a pita to tune if youve never done standalones yada yada
3) quality is decent, yet pipes are crush bent for the most part blah blah

if you can find one used (2 are for sale used in the FS section) it might be a decent deal.. buying new i would not get one.

plenty of reviews to read going on that ^ info..

all you will have to do is go and get injectors and go to a shop to properly tune the haltech for your car. its not too bad.

The wiring and wiring harness for the haltech F10x is different for a 2004-2005 then it is on a 2006+. Also the 2004-2005 has to use the ford racing tach driver where the 2006+ uses an MSD. Can't remember the exact differences cause I have never dealt with an 06+ but there is deffinatly differences.

yes i forgot all about that. i had the hiboost wiring harness and i trashed it because they sent me the wrong one and it was a pos. Wires were crossed and it was just made by very low quality. i had a huge mess with this wiring kit. Get in contact with haltech and order a wiring harness from them. it is what i did. it is a high quality harness. as for the tach driver i am running a ford racing one but i am sure you could get the msd to work with some modificatioon. i would search first though and see if you can find the ford racing one.

difference is the number of teeth on the crank sensor or some such nonsense that shouldnt have been changed in the first place :lol:

we tried for days and days on the phone with dee and msd themselves to get the msd to work on my 04 and it will not, trust me. car will start but thats it. start and die, start and die.

well what did you think? the magical turbo fairy would zoom down and tap your car with boost dust and voila? :lol: its not even that bad if all your doing is installing the kit. majority of your time will be wiring.

It seems the OP has made quite a few threads regarding turbo kits. If you just spend an hour or two in the boost section you will find everything you need. The Hiboost/TBK Performance has pretty much been discussed to death. Everyone knows they are a shady company and only two people had success with them, Jake and Aminzer. And what do ya know, both of these guys lived in Miami, where TBK Performance was located. Instead of asking dumb questions about a turbo company that doesn't technically exist for the Mazda world anymore; look into getting a turbo from Reactive Racing, Tri-Point, or F2.
