And yes, your picture well shows the difference between what comes on the TD04, and what we need to mate with Miata.
no problem.

i have a really hard time understanding how someone can argue their point after seeing that pic.

so i knew the brakes were done at the last track day, but damn!


didt realize they were that bad. im now getting slight taper too in 2 planes as you can see in the pic.

new pads, turned the front rotors(they are about 1/4" too big to fit on my lathe, so i had to go to oreillys), new pins and boots/seals. i bought piston seals too, but they seem fine and i dont really want to spend the time to do all that right now, especially the rear calipers.

fuzzy pic of a torn boot


and the irony here is awesome


i thought that **** was galvinized :(. ill paint it flat black one day

i take that back, i need to rebuild the drivers side rear. the dust boot was torn and fell off, it was just sitting on the piston, so you can imagine how much **** got in there and will take out the seal. also its leaking a little brake fluid out the back adjuster access bolt, so im guessing the adjuster seal is going bad too. and finally the larger of the 2 caliper pins was loose and therefore it bent, the threads were ok on the caliper. this caused dragging and the pads were much more worn than the pass side ones were.

ran my last n/a track day yesterday. set new records on this course as its the first time ive done it since the last round of wheel, tire and suspension changes. it was a great day and the car felt solid. now that ive got my tire pressures dialed in and i actually remembered to set them all cold, the car was as nuetral as ever and became much easier to push to the limit and correct when going slightly over the limit.

video

a lot of things are going wrong with this car in a hurry though. just in time to tear it down for turbo and fix it all!
things that have happened/noticed in the last 48 hrs
1. saturday i noticed the slightest coolant weep at the rear of the head. it disappeared sunday.
2. on sunday the coolant weep was replaced with a pretty good oil leak at the back of the head. after every run i would have a small puddle around spark plug 4 on top of the valve cover. coil packs are getting soaked.
3. engine is still burning lots of oil. 1 qt/ 100 miles
4. while griding for my last run sunday, a noise developed right when you revved the engine just above idle, like an exhaust rattle
5. at the track there was a slight strange clicking noise/sensation (felt through the floor) when you would back up with the wheel turned, only about half way to lock. after the last run it intensified and now does it while turning and backing up and while braking right when the car comes to a stop and the chassis settles. i have no idea what this is and cant find anything loose.
6. on the way home from the track sunday, it developed a slight miss at idle. see #2 for possible cause.
7. when i was bringing the engine up to temp this morning for comp test, it started leaking coolant from the upper hose. the hose was harder (more pressurized) than i think it should be which (along with the spark plug below) makes me wonder about a possible blown head gasket.

i did a comp test this morning, which in combination with the way plug number 4 looks, i think reveals that cylinder 4 is probably where most of the oil is going.
engine was warmed up, throttle held wide open. data set of one, too lazy to do an average.
1. 158 psi
2. 150 psi
3. 163 psi
4. 168 psi

plug 1 and 2 were clean, this was plug number 4:


it doesnt have that many miles on it...

3 looked kind of in between 1 and 4. notice all the white deposits. as i understand this is from oil or fuel additives. i thought it could be caused by coolant maybe from a weak head gasket. not sure. this may also be the cause of my #4 rattle, as it could actually be pinging i suppose from the oil in the combustion chamber.

im almost positive i need valve seals, and with 160k its likely the guides may be worn as well. i think im going to pull the head, have it checked out and replace the valve seals at a minimum. i was going to replace seals while it was on the car, but with all this, i might as well just pull it and make life easy. it needs all the other seals anyway. and i can get a peak at the cylinders.

i decided before i do that, i want to make sure my questionable eBay injectors are going to work. so i installed those this morning.




my megasquirt laptop died, so i need to transfer all the files to its replacement and dial in req fuel, etc.


i coned toyota into sending me a boost emblem

Engine just needs more boost, boost normally helps seal things up by pressurizing everything

I wonder if the misfire was just soaked coils.

im almost sure it was. i stopped by my friends house on the way home from the track to help pull an s2k trans. i dont recomend it. anyway, it only started missing when i pulled up to his house, he immediately asked whats wrong with your car? it was that obvious. the 25 mile drive to his house gave the leak ample opportunity to soak the coils. after it sat for a few hours while we pulled the tans, the oil drained away, no more misfire. the shorter 10 mile drive home didnt give the leak enough time to thoroughly soak the coils so it wasnt doing it when i got home. thats my theory anyway.

btw, i forgot to bring the imnotgay gps with me, so i didnt get to test with trackmaster. :(
