Sweet Mike. Sometimes I miss working towards the turbo world. But then these show up and make it all better... :D

its been windy lately though....

Mark you going to the event this sunday? I'll probably swing by for a bit just for some photos and a passenger pass if you have the miata. AND to show you my new setup lol.


Got a fair amount done today though.... sorry for the crappy pics for some reason my phone doesn't like me :\







got the old setup torn down (YUP oil in the intake) painted the manifold and damn it I'm happy with my welding for being my first time. Good clearance, got the AC removed along with the fan, the manifold threads enlarged and helicoiled for 3/8" and got the whole setup test fitted. gonna work on routing coolant, oil and vacuum and boost (charge pipes) lines tomorrow and whatever else I need to get done. OH right, drill the hole in the oil pan, get the gaskets changed along with the oil and build the exhaust.

Got a better deal on exhaust tubing too... 16 feet of 2.5" for about $30

maybe.

but first I have to get my car together. almost there but kinked a stainless oil feed line. better hope the g thing still works. unkinked it the best I could

whats left to do (im pissed, this should calm me down)

-pull turbo back out enough to clean surfaces and put on manifold gaskets and bolt it back up
-install bov and charge pipes and get wastegate bolted down
-build support brace from block to dp flange
-build downpipe and get it bolted in.
-install fan
-plug some intake holes for now
-reinstall intake manifold bolt
-start it up and check for leaks
-get belt around crank pulley and power steering
-finish the rest of the exhaust
-change plugs and valve cover gasket

oh jeez Im close... I was yelling at it so i had to stop for the day
