Does Abe know you have an MSM? They do have different A/C compressors than a regular NB. I don't know what difference that makes but I thought I would mention it.

Of course I was running on stock 1.8 brakes, not huge BBK, so YMMV...
Yeah, Ryan was having to take it easy on the brake application to keep from locking them up, he said at the track. The 11.75 rotors are muy grande compared to the 10 inch stock ones.

This I did not know. I will look into it.

As for using a more aggressive pad than the xr4, I can lock up the fronts on the rivals on demand with these brakes so I think they are probably okay for now. The rivals I am using are near the end of their life so if new tires prove to have substantially more grip I will consider changing brake compounds.

To do that brake upgrade, do you loose abs?

From what I can find, the MSM compressor is significantly smaller and should actually allow for additional clearance.

No I did not lose ABS. It actually engaged a fair amount during the rain sessions at sebring when the rivals were skating on the water.

When I lock up the tires while braking it isn't for very long before the abs engages but it ia definitely noticeable. I would rather not rely on the abs when I am braking because it can be really hard on hot rotors.

The pics from Sebring are up. I'm contemplating buying. There are some pretty good ones of you on your knees in the garage area earning tire money, lol.

It's a lot smaller and lighter. Shouldn't be an issue. Lines are routed differently though.

Daytona was awesome! All the way up to the very last lap of the very last session when my motor blew up! I'm pretty sure I shifted into the wrong gear and either threw a rod or lost a valve which then reaked havoc. I had missed a downshift earlier as well so I am sure the rods were already not happy.

Luckily I had a friend who lives fairly close to me who had offered to trailer my car home and let me drive his 5.0 mustang back. We droppee the car at Miata2fast's shop and I'll be starting on the engine swap a little earlier than I planned.

Daytona is an incredibly fast track and heavily favors hp over handling. It was still very fun to hit 140mph in the miata on the back straight. Great course, would go again.

I'm really curious where the oil came from that was all around the engine bay. At least you didn't do it first session Saturday.

I am going to have a look later on today to see if I can find the offending hole.

It clears the A/C, what about the P/S pump?

P/S has been deleted which allows the turbo to be mounted further forward to allow room for the EWG plumbing back to the downpipe.
- no way is there enough room in our engine bay for P/S and an EWG with an EFR without cutting the shelf.

Will the turbo need any additional bracing or should the EWG and associated plumbing provide enough since there are 2 mount points to the manifold?
ie. the turbo is not hanging off one manifold mount point AND supporting the downpipe.

I actually don't think space would be an issue or at least it wasn't for me. It was designed this way at my request as I preferred a low mount setup for better flow characteristics and heat management concerns. I was removing p/s anyway so it was not a concern. It only needed to clear the AC.

This is what RyanG's Miata looks like from behind. Well, at least when it is running.


Miata enters at :50.

A few broken axles never hurt anybody.




Wait a minute. You have a Mazdaspeed. No excuses!

Why do I take a car to any track? To find any weakness and make it stronger. Your old motor had a weakness and you rooted it out. Good job.
