I think its nice. The car def. isnt my color, but who cares. The car is gonna be hella fast. Oh and also, if you're looking for 400whp I hope you buy some internals for your tranny. Its gonna break......but then again now that I think about it, the 6speeds are supposedly stronger

I considered quaife for a minute then i realized I could buy about five 6 speeds for that much money. There's also other interesting options for much leass money.

Hey are these pictures too big? Would it be better if I uploaded them to the forum instead of hosting and embedding?

Now that we're on page two it's fine, but that first page was more than my old computer could handle.

This site automatically re-sizes all pictures, so I don't see what the problem is.

OK more pics time...


So much for chronological happiness. Here's the beginning:


This is the BEGI S5 kit, all layed out on my old roommates fucked up tartan table.

And more pictures of my lovely purple pipes.

Some pictures of the Enthuza exhaust AND A 6UL wheel. Not like you haven't seen any of those ever before.

One problem I found while taking apart my car is that the Enthuza midpipe flange does not mate up properly with the BEGI downpipe flange. There's a big exhaust leak there as evidenced by soot. And the horrible uncatted exhaust that used to always choke my cabin. I initially thought that I had a crack in the turboe turbine or the mani or something but i'm pretty sure it's from the flange connection now. I'll take pictures of the flanges and turbine and mani. I guess I'll have to get them both machined down. I know I had them bolted way the **** down to each other so blah sigh.


BTW I think my exhaust is hanging lower now by almost an inch than in these pictures. When I installed the exhaust I used poly hangers. Did they stretch???? wtf?

Exhaust looks great. 6uls I've never seen before

Those taillight "eye lids" are horrendous though IMO

And those pipes are way more pink than purple. Its ok sweetie, we understand

yummy! I prefer having you upload them from another site. Saves me the trouble of having to click every picture.

Here is my awesome gauge setup. It doesn't get any better than this. Two lovers once separated, now reunited. BEGI and FM making sweet turbo tuning love.

The only gauges I know I'm adding at this point is the hydramist WI gauge and the Knocklite (if you can call it a gauge). I might install an oil pressure and water temperature warning light if I can figure out how to do that. I don't think I need to keep an eye on pressure/temp; a binary "you're about to be fucked badly" alert would do the job.

I know I don't want megagauges all over the place.

What the hell is that second gauge? The white one? Probably a stupid question, but I've never seen a gauge like that before.

Here's some pics of my spiffy built head. I bought this back in '06 and it sat so long that the cams rusted :(. I should have installed it but back then I was too scared. Seriously..

Savington--- I actually have +1 valves on intake and exhaust both. When dynoing if there's time I'll do a pull for full advance, full retard, and Y8s special VVT blend.

This. In white. And it says "Flyin' Miata". Dual EGT gauge up to 1600. If I tracked I would need something that went to 1800 or 2000. I only approach 1600 degrees on pulls that head up into 6th gear. This dual gauge setup was pretty expensive. With the thermocouple senders, extensions, and gauge I think it cost something like $400. There might be other cheaper solutions out there.

Some more details---

This is my turbo:

TurboByGarrett.com - Catalog

700382-3

----edit----

No, that isn't my turbo. I have a T3 flanged

http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob...30/GT3071R.htm

With this turbine housing: 740902-8

Per the Garret website: "* This unit is outline interchangeable on turbine side with GT3076R and GT3582R units"

GT3582R might be in the future..
