This is her. Bought about a year ago, after my deployment/divorce, as my first venture away from domestics. Since then money pit.
After my 99 motor blew from low oil, I joined the boosted world with an 04 MSM motor with FM piping. I got her running with Megasquirt 2 and tuned myself with boost set to 14-15psi. Yes I know, pointless on that tiny turbo.
But now due to my luck ( probably from reading fae's thread) I believe to have bent a rod.
Video of sound to haunt your nightmares.
This was the result of a bored night and thinking I'd get lunch control/flat shift to work. Didn't matter what wire on the clutch switch it was on it would always engage. So there I was in Advanced auto parts parking lot ( just happened to be down the road when I was going into launch control while driving) messing with it
Settings 3000rpm 15 timing retard ( or so I thought)
Decent settings right for testing?
A buddy that works at advanced yells "I don't see any flames!"
Well ****.. let's fix that 4000rpm set wait wut timing retard was set to 1? it didn't take my keystroke of 5?
So what do I do?
I spend moneys to build it bigger, better and stronger.
Current parts listing in pile:
- Typical turbo Miata bottom end
Wiseco pistons 84mm
Eagle H beam rods
Full ARP studs
ACL racing bearings
Boundary Engineering oil pump
- My supporting mods and upgrades for my final goal
Walboro HP 255
RC 440cc injectors
Precision 350hp intercooler
Cometic head gasket
Full Gates racing belts ( timing and serpentines)
-Coolant reroute parts
Begi rear spacer
Block off freeze plug
RC 440cc injectors because I was planning on staying with the stock internal msm motor and not that much power increase. and got them for really cheap from a buddy 100$
Flywheel but no clutch huh?
I already have a ACT clutch in there already that was use a total of 1-2 months maybe.
~20psi 400hp with decent spool.
I'm not picky on the exact numbers but this is where I want to be.
Top mount turbo manifold?? I kinda like the look of them up to opinions/ facts.
Stronger rear end with 3.63 gears hopefully
Steady state dyno tune
Thanks for your time.
My engine should be coming out the car and start being built this week.
What am I missing? ( If anything)
Any pro/cons to anything in my setup that I should consider? or parts that may have better rivals.
