Its not to save money this time. I have some outside stuff that is taking time from being able to work on the car. I'd rather have a solid slightly shittier setup so I can build the VVT over time and put other things first. Money is not the issue time is. :/

Dyno says 200ft/lbs but I blew a 5 speed on Friday...which are normally good for a bit more than that.

I was about to come in here and say you're crazy, might as well just do rods-only on the VVT, but you'd have to re-do all the turbo stuff.

I think with your luck you have 3 choices.

1. Turn the boost down a couple PSI. Easy button, and you'll still have a helluva lot more fun than NA OR than with a busted car.

2. Rods and rings 1.6 build. I do not think this is a terrible idea.

3. You chance it and likely break something. This is worse than being slow, as you well know since you've done both.

Based on our conversations, I really think the right answer is #1. More to life than this stuff. I need to tell myself that more, maybe I'll start living it.

For what it's worth I've seen 5 speeds let go at the track on cars that are making 165wtq, 185wtq, and 250wtq. All the same failure mode, stripped the teeth off third when full throttle.

Good to hear arca, makes me feel a bit better.
<br />
<br />Ed, good points. A few less psi will be way more fun than none. Now hurry up and get your car together so I can get my high boost fix as a passenger.

I stripped the teeth from third with a JRSC. Not sure what torque it put out but it only made 170whp, it certainly wasn't that fast...

There is not enough money in the world to get me to climb back into a car with you at the track.

Ok current plan of attack.
<br />Tuesday: rebuild tail end of 6 speed. New rear seal, maybe new o-ring for speed sensor. Doubt I'll get the snap ring or gasket in time. Either install Ed's MSM shifter, or Bobs. Apparently there are different 6 speed shifters-news to me.
<br />Pull exhaust, ppf, drain fluids etc. In prep for wed.
<br />Wednesday: Yank is coming over with truck jack stands. Pull 5 speed, put in 6 speed. Replace rear main while I'm at it...again. Fill with ford fluid.
<br />Weekend is free to tear into donor car, get it out of my grandmas garage (and into her field ) and spend some well needed non car time. Maybe some mountain biking in hood river.

<br />Don't think Bob has the VIN for this tailshaft extension housing he sent me. I will mearsur when I get home. Hopefully Ed can measure too.

Unless the ball part stays with the rest of the trans. I need to look at the repair manual again.

Ed has a MRSSK, they're all the same with different sizes delrin bushings. Food for thought.

If you want the swanky feel of the Miataroadster shifter for cheap, you can order the Delrin tip bushing by itself for $15 bucks.
