LOL not the same - this one has teh VEE VEE ****

I honestly don't know since my Uncle hooked it up on bodywork and paint at a discount. I WAS quoted 2,000+ by other people though, which I thought was highway robbery.

Weight on this bad boy is probably that of a stock 2001 SE, so not as heavy as I make it seem. I've added some weight (like the dynamat), but I took away some weight too (suspension, hardtop without soft top, lighter wheel, no air bags). I'd say 2400-2500 soaking wet if I had to guess.

Thanks

Got that stuff from ebay. 100sq/ft was almost double what I needed. So if you're just doing 1 miata I'd recommend 50sq/ft.

Which stuff did you get and would you recommend it?

Planning on doing a bunch on my XT, getting sick of the awful NVH.

zillamat. and yes. but I'd say it helps more with rattles/squeeks/tin-can feeling/resonance more than sound itself. For that stuff you want the foam from RAAMaudio or whatever.

One of my good buddies is an automotive NVH engineer, I'll see what he says and then go from there.

Thanks for the info

I sold the GT2876R today.

Will be using the GT2860RS on stock block for now, and when I build the block I have decided to go with the new ultraballersauce BORGWARNER EFR

Smart man

Seeing the results from that turbo make me want to build another turbo miata so badly. I should probably work onfinding a car first...

Which EFR? Are you going to reuse that T3 flanged ETD or are you building another T25 manifold? Jesus christ... T3 flanged EFR 7064 maybe?

lol its a long ways away, so I have a lot of time to figure out which one is "for me" while I enjoy this Disco Potato setup.

I will be observing quietly in the background as more EFRs are tested, possibly the trackspeed kit comes out, and carefully plan out my ALLOFIT build. For right now I can honestly say that 200-230 would be perfect on this thing, I don't need any more for daily driving, and have a MUCH faster car for when I need my fix

Yeah, okay. We'll see how long that lasts

I bet you'll spend long nights lying awake in bed thinking about what turbo to run. Seriously. Precision turbos w/ billet comp. wheels for 900, Borg Warnet ext. tip turbos for 700 and the new S/sx series with EFR billet comp. wheels for just over a grand, etc.. . It's like candy land for people with T3 flanges

Alright well the progress is slower than a snail, mainly because I'm just driving the car daily and not wanting to worry about anything at all. Also because its an extremely busy time of the year for me and I just don't have the time to tinker with the car.

Loving the dead reliability of the car, but dreading the stock power levels.

In the very near future I'll be changing all the oils in the car, so I had a friend (who is a dealer) get me some Amsoil fluids:



That should take care of engine, trans, and rear end.

Next I picked up a set of ID1000's:


Next on the list after that: Megasquirt MS3x
