So I have been reading here, else where and applying prior knowledge as to just how I want to do this.
I figured after reading and going through everything I would post here and get some opinions from those with experience.
I do not have a WHP Goal honestly, just looking to have fun and be reliable. With that said I already have two requirements to ensure this, Wideband (Already purchased) and Megasquirt 2 PNP (I have experience with the KL Motors and the Version one processor so I should be able to pick up and not do to badly with the Version 2 Processor).
The vehicle in question is a 2000 Miata and Emissions are not an issue for me thankfully.
My plans are as follows:
- Megasquirt V2 PNP (Missed the Bulk Buy, registered just a little to late so I am on the waiting list)
- Walbro 255 Fuel Pump
- Lighter Flywheel (I know this is not the norm but it is my pref for my driving style)
- KL Clutch Disk, Probably a Spec Stage 2 Disk
- It seems most keep the Miata Pressure Plate so I was going to look for an upgraded one to use if I can find one.
- eBay Turbo Manifold that I will make support brackets for myself as well as check the welds.
- Front Mount Intercooler
I have debated doing a Supercharger like the Eaton M62 with the Clutch (Seen on the C230's) but I want to try a turbo this time.
I also already have 2 sets of injectors:
WRX 820cc Just cleaned and flow benched injectors but the connectors are on the side so I might have to make a custom fuel rail for these.
I will be running E85 90% of the time, its not hard to get my hands on here and obviously has great results for the price.
However using Megasquirt and running lower boost I will be able to go to 91 should I need to for any reason.
Now I do not feel the 550cc Injectors will be able to handle E85 + Boost so I will probably sell those after getting the rest of the kit ready. (I am going to run E85 NA for a while to get used to tuning for E85 esp since doing it NA will mean its pretty safe in regards to me blowing something up, should be good practice)
I am not looking to build the motor so obviously were not looking to break 300whp. Maybe later on but honestly I find my next goal after this will be going back to a KL unless this motor boosted just blows me away.
While building it I will have access to a block to mock most of this up on and another oil pan so when I am ready to go it will be my goal to be a weekend swap out and make any exhaust modifications I have to that were not forseen while building.
I however have not settled on the perfect turbo yet. I would love users advice and I have seen some love for the FM turbo that I am now spacing on the number I will go snag it from the website again.
Advice is very welcome.
Also on cooling I want to do it right and have been looking at the reroute modification as it seems to be a more reliable and smarter choice then just going after the radiator.
I think I can do most of it myself but I am still looking at information on that closely.
The goal for completing this build is 3 to 4 months from now, barring any unforeseen issues.
I also have a more random question to go with this if anyone knows,
I am looking to swap in the 6 speed rear diff. I would like the longer gears for top speed runs with the Vettes from time to time, nothing grand but just for fun at times.
I am worried however as to how the Gauge Cluster gets its Speed Readings and if that can be adjusted easily like say with the GM LSx Setups where we just told the PCM this is the Gear Ratio and Tire size and it handled it.
Thanks everyone and I hope my post is not too Noob for those experienced members here.
