I figured with how easily you get distracted with new builds I could easily just drop one off at your house, then you say this is cool, then never finish this build. Like all your others.

Subbed. I'm wanting to do an Eliminator style build as well, but I'm interested in seeing how easy it is to adapt just to cage and do the rest myself... keep it up!

Is there a way to contact them outside of facebook or running into them at the track?

I'm definitely interested in this kit.

I'll not take much convincing to start into a Locost. Or one of these.

I like light, minimalist stuff. But then I have trouble getting rid of my air conditioning...

Squirrel or something blah blah. What were we talking about?

Yes, keep the squirters. Remove them for forged pistons.

Decisions... so I cracked open the 99 block and found everything looked great - until i pooped out the #2 piston (bad pun). Looks like something amiss happened. Some scoring on the piston and cylinder wall.

So -
1: take crank out of 99 and put in 94 block, using 94 pistons with less CR

2: same as above but throw in forged 93mm pistons

3: same but buy a single 99/00 piston and use the 3 good ones for the higher CR

4: **** it and use the slightly scored piston (and others) in '94 block

5: GeneSplicer goes bankrupts because he blows his load on machine work and forging it all.

I'm trying to at all avoid sending either block off for machining. The 99 certainly will need to be bored .020 if it's gonna be used. The 94 is a more desirable block because of side oil and coolant access.





#2 cylinder wall





#2 piston





Cyl #1,3,4 look great like this

I'd get it bored and put Weisco's in it. But I already said that.

I didn't consider it until the 99 block showed issues as well. Now it's in consideration.
I truly am trying to stay cheap (in moderation) because I still have the track to car finish - and it's way more greedy with what funds I have.
It's not like i want this to make 350 - or do I... look!! Rabbit!!

Cheapest I can invision that will work

Weisco pistons/rings
Ebay rods
Cheap set of decent bearings
Mazda gasket set
Gates timing belt kit, Fab9 has a deal on this and a water pump

That should be 1K in parts I think and be bullet proof.

Well - the 94 block had a ring groove in #3 - so off to the machine shop we go. Ordered some 84mm supertechs 9.5:1 - with safe tune and good fuel, this'll rock.
While i was at it, ordered sway bar kit, comp mounts, cometic gasket, gates belt. ... yada yada yada

The most un-miataturbo thing I will ever say: dude just buy a 1.8 for $700, drop it in, and go have good clean NA fun in an awesome lightweight Eliminator. You can always add boost later. You've got two badazz boosted Miatas already!

All my track buddies tell me the same thing - I still think they're wrong
$85 for block bore and cleaning - that ain't bad at all - hell, even for the cleaning alone it'd be with it.

I agree. They're wrong.

Turbo is more fun. Thats just a given. Then you need to decide if the work required to be turbo is worth it. thats the personal choice.

Not with this one - now if I had another $3k for the TSE kit and DP.
I've got a used FM kit to put on it. The turbo is currently being rebuilt with wheel upgrades. It's a T25. Should be plenty for 250rwhp.
