So to start things off I have been doing all the research I can in the past few years and last summer officially started my build with the purchase of a diy megasquirt kit. Spent about a week re-reading the megamanual along with the megasquirt stickys and started the task. Took me about 3 days of solid soldering and I was done.
Stage 2 began by picking up an extra 1.6 off craigslist (so i would not have any down time durring the rebuild). Once completely torn apart I started saving my pennies and bought all my rebuild goodies.
-Pistons sent to Swain Coatings in NY for a nice ceramic finish
-Manley forged H-beam rods
-Crome molly piston rings
-Flying Miata rebuild kit w/ ACL bearings
-Flying Miata Clutch and Lightweight flywheel
-New oil, water pump etc.
3 angle valve job (my first valve regrind, pretty nerve racking
Custom oil drain bung
Out with the old....
In with the new...
Engine is still in break-in process right now (want to make sure everything is settled before boost!). Working on Megasquirt tuning, and turbo rebuild.
Picked up from turbo.net
-Garrett T25 from SR20
-BEGI Manifold & Downpipe
Had turbo shaft cleaned and balanced by Alamo Turbo down in Kent, WA. All parts cleaned, rebuilt, and painted for install.
