BTW, check mah build. #4 took a dirt nap and I caught the rod knock early enough. So no major damage.
EXCEPT, BC OF THE BEARING RIPPING TO PIECES. My crankshaft was also fubar
It was also stupid dirty inside the PCV area. PO were douches from what I could tell. My car is CURSED.
BEGi tech checking all of my wiring
That brown rad took a dump on me when the motor sploded. Plastic end came off. Sploosh of coolant on the road and over hated the motor
Now have a mishimoto alum rad. Build quality is questionable.
Bough some thangs,
ThuperTech pistons 83.5mm 9.5CR
Manley Rods / Wiseco xx8350 rings or w/e
ARP Hardware (head & main)
Boundry engineering oil pump +1 shim
Cast metal propeller water pump
ThuperTech Single springs since my OEM were worn.
GT2860 CHRA since the old was busted
MTX Gauges for Boost and AFR off of amazon.
Mazdaroadster shifter kit, oem style but I polished it... Ooh yea, only "I" know it's polished under the oem boot.
Already had FM2 clutch & light flywheel
Greddy FV BOV since the one I had on the car was ebay ****
Amsoil in trans & diff (seems a lot more noisy compared to my old Redline fluid
Castrol GTX 5w30 for break in period... Leaking oil now from the pan and had some blow by out of the valve cover
Overall turbo system is a BEGi S3, cast iron manifold, GT2860 Turbo, Idk what the exhaust size is... guessing 2.5" with corksport duals in the back. Actually sounds pretty nice, zero rasp & low drone.
Oh and BEGi reflashed ECU + XEDE Piggy into the harness. 460cc ev14 Five-o injectors, MAF
How she sits now...
Since it was at BEGi for 11 months, it got plenty of sun time. Rear trunk area & hood are lighter on the paint. Sides still look decent
