For anyone that runs into problems that I had. Where it worked on the bench not in the car. I fixed mine because my TPS wasn't pulled. My 1990 non variable TPS was shorting out VREF and messing everything up. I had read to pull it but it didn't seem important until I checked the schematic and realized it was connected to VREF. Unplugged the TPS and it started right up.

Here are my tables. Anyone have input on them? They are pulled from one of Brain's MS3 maps.

Ignition:



Fuel:

Once again my problem stems from my failures, not the failures of the components.

Somehow I missed this when I was putting it together. Fan output shorted straight to ground...

Thanks to jrmotorsports55 I have a nice gently used Fidanza Flywheel to go with my clutch.

Props to you for building your MS3.

All of the problems you've run into are why I just bit the bullet and bought from Rev. I don't have the time or patience to trouble shoot all those little issues.

Nice work

Nice work
I'm at school to be an electrical engineer, with access to a full lab and everything I needed. I couldn't bring myself to pay someone to build it for me. Looking back it was all just stupid mistakes I wouldn't make again.

Onto some updates.

Removed power steering and AC:



As my friend put it, its just begging to have a turbo shoved in its hole now.

Kinda funny because I originally decided on the MS3+MS3x because it could handle AC so well. Then I found out no one would deal with R12 and I didn't care about AC as much as I thought I did so now its gone.

Update:

This happened to me :(

http://www.miataturbo.net/media-53/b...0/#post1173235

Just stupid driving. All my fault. I learned my lesson.

Added to the list is harness for passenger and hans for me.

Also am picking up a new 1.6 from greddygalant. It came out of Laz and should be a decent engine. Mine has horrible pulley wobble and not sure how much longer it will last.

Started gathering parts for an engine swap/winter projects.

These are the projects that I'm hoping to tackle. Some of them have well thought out plans, some of them I'm hoping for input on.

Been doing some planning and shopping. Got an internship that lasts through the school year and includes access to a machine shop when I come home on the weekends so I've been putting together a list of projects. Could use some input from the local guys.


Drivetrain:
1.6 from greddygalant
Mazda Motor Mounts (Have)
FM Clutch (Have)
Fidanza Flywheel (Have)
Shifter Rebuild (Have)
Delrin diff mounts? (Planning on making)
Toyota Cops (Have, need bracket/wiring)
RX-8 injectors (Have, need bracket/wiring)
Coolant reroute (Have jackson racing spacer, need to tap/turn)
Flip mixing manifold
Build turbo manifold/downpipe
Rebuild turbo
Tap pan while engine is out

Safety:
Passenger harness
Hans+helmet
Maybe new seats (Looking at aluminum seats most likely because of price)

Any suggestions on parts/other things to add to this list?

Injectors don't need brackets/wiring.

Need wiring for sequential, no brackets though that's a typo.

Small Update, parts coming in:

Thanks to 949Racing for the motor mounts



Jackson Racing Spacer from Moss Miata (going to machine, drill and tap into a coolant spacer)





Also thanks to Moss Miata for the shifter rebuild kit



And lastly, thanks to greddygalant for the sweet new (to me) 1.6





Also pictured is the stick of acetal I picked up to make some differential mounts out of.

Jeffbucc also came through with a crank pulley (curly borrowed the one off this engine)

Plans for the engine are to replace the rear main seal, then pull the oil pan to clean it and also drill and tap it.

I also just placed an order at easterbeaver.com for some 8 and 10 pin connectors. I will use these to add sequential injection and spark to the new engine.

Spent some time with my calipers today.

Marked up where I was going to drill/tap the spacer.







Made sure to put the temp sensor on the flat part of the spacer because it seals with an aluminum washer, not the threads.

Also took more measurements for the diff mounts

Spent some more time working today.

Got rid of the front waterneck, replacing it with a Trackspeed engineering blockoff plate.



Also got my injectors back from RC.

Miataturbo discount:



Got them to within 1cc/min of each other:



Came packaged very nicely:



Also got some work done on my COPs harness. I have a trigger wire for each cop so that I can run sequential ignition.

Looks good. I think I already see some cleaning of Laz's old 1.6. It's going to be weird seeing it in another car.

Don't forget to ignore your suspension and tires. Last I remember you needed softer rear springs and a decent street/track capable tire.

I think a set of qa1 springs are on the list. I might just run my current all seasons next season.

Curly can I borrow your drill bit and tap one of these weekends. Is it a 3/8 npt? Because I need that for the spacer and the oil pan.

Got the trackspeed engineering blockoff plate installed today:



And I also picked this thing up....for 50$!





Not totally sure on the info but it seems to be a 80 gallon 5hp compressor, worked last week when it was taken out of service. It weighs about 500lbs and is currently still in the back of my truck, no idea how I am going to get it out.

Finished up my COP harness today. Still missing the plugs from easter beaver to wire it up to the car but otherwise it is together. The plan is to replace the ignitor plug with a 10 pin sumitomo plug and wire it sequential back to the ECU.

Update: Got the rear main seal installed today along with my fidanza flywheel and FM clutch.

Thanks to BTMiata for letting me borrow his rear main seal tool, and greddygalant for the clutch.









Also got the compressor running today. Had to go to home depot and get a plug to match my dryer plug. I think I'm going to change the oil and belts on the compressor before I use it though. Its pretty beat up.

Looking for opinions on different painting options. I'm getting new fenders and the hood, trunk, and bumper paint has seen better days. Trying to figure out my best option for a new paint job over the winter. I'm considering 3 options.

1. Brightside Roll-on paint job.

http://honda-tech.com/paint-body-84/my-$50-more-like-$452-63-paint-job-writeup-thread-tons-pictures-1857355/

Pros: Cheap...really cheap
Cons: Some people say it looks dull and never will shine up. Others say that by using the Yacht paint instead of Rustoleum it works.

2. Use a real paint gun and set up a booth in my garage.

Pros: Probably a better paint job
Cons: More expensive, more work.

3. Get some sort of Maaco paint job

Pros: Less work
Cons: More money.

For all options I would be doing all the sanding and prep work.

Anybody have opinions on these? What would you go with?
