Well ive decided to make a build thread. I have had my miata since i was 15. Bought it the first year to just screw around with it until i got my license.
I did intake, borla exhaust, rims, headers, ect...all the ricer **** when you first buy your miata. Then the next year after i bought a cheap ebay turbo kit, tried to put it on said **** it cause i realized how big of a piece of **** it was and sold it. Then i bought a lowering kit, Megasquirt bigger injectors for another year. Then last year i went all out. Ripped out the motor built it fully with 8:8:1 forged pistons, H beam forged rods, knife edged crank, springs, retainers, valves, HKS cams, high flow oil pump, bearings, port and polished, bored over MLS HG...pretty much everything in my motor is brand new and built for boost.
The i purchased a BEGI stage 4 kit, biggest intercooler they had, SS seperated DP, SS manifold, 3 inch flange, 3 inch cat, 3 inch mangaflow exhaust, GT2871R turbo, was going to go 3071 but i thought it was going to be to big. HKS bov, put a 97 LSD 4.10 in it because i knew the factory 90 VLSD wouldnt hold up. ACT HD clutch, lighted 10lb flywheel. And all the tid bits oil cooler, gauges, seats, steering wheel, pedals, bracing, JL 10W3, JL tweeters with crossovers and speakers, JL rear 6x9's and two amps, ect ect...i wanted to build a fast show car.
And since i always got chirped since i bought my miata that it was a chicks car i now prove everyone wrong
. Sooo here are some pics since i had it.
ebay turbo kit
went into a curb, fucked up all the suspension in the LF of car.
ripped apart the tranny at work to check the syncros and gears
"45 volt coil pack"...should have just bought COP's...
I LOVE WIRING
then i had to pull the motor back out :( stupid cam bolt was loose thought it was a broken lifter...
