1st time and I don't know what I'm doing; uhh, it goes where?!?!
Some from intro thread:
Recently purchased my '91 Miata. 75k on the odometer but it's definitely been abused a little, not the cleanest of cars, however the interior is in surprisingly good shape. Mostly stock as far as I know, it all looks like it visually. Has a short shifter installed and is lowered on some unknown springs with KYB shocks; has a HDRoll bar and a strut bar.
I'm from Sonora, Ca in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada's, where the majority of the roads are windy and curvy as hell. I've had some fun driving it around, but had a run in with a family of deer the other night. Ended up on the shoulder which had a manzanita tree and some rocks that the Miata and I wiped out. Broken and bent some stuff, the front right tire is stuck turned toward the right. So I flat bedded it to my house and it's damage assessment time.
Fixed the fender and headlight. Ordered a new shock, and bought a new steering rack, knuckle, end link, UCA, LCA, some new mirrors to paint black as the passenger one took some damage. Putting those on currently.
Planning on depowering the new rack I got, and removing all of the A/C. Just removed the EVAP crap.
Been getting some parts in the mail.
Pictured: rebuilt SR20 T25, Begi cast manifold, ceramic coated FM divorced waste gate divider cast elbow, FM 2.5 hybrid downpipe with brace, brain-built MS1. Planning on either picking up the rest of the FM exhaust setup from MCA or having a buddy build me 2.5" from the downpipe back with a big magnaflow.
Ideas on exhaust choice? Different route I should consider? Cheaper the better.
Waiting on an ACT PP and 6 puck sprung clutch.
update MS1 to MS2(keep it MS1?? I don't know what I'm doing) and rewire for my 1.6l.
Walboro 190HP (how much can the stock fuel pump be pushed?)
Easiest/most cost effective intercooler setup.
Hoping for 220whp with this setup, which I want for a while, then I hope to upgrade the turbo(2860?) and shoot for around 260-270whp along with getting a torsen in the rear end.
Also just picked up a Hobart MIG, and a soldering station. Got a lot of learning and research ahead of me.
Thoughts, ideas, advice? Negative and positive criticism. I want all of it.
