Just something i'm a bit confused about is, is that black oil cooler pipe the main coolant return to the radiator or is there another one?

it looks a bit tiny to me.




hustler just dont forget to "clean the work area" afterwards.

If you use your mouth on him maybe he'll hook you up with some parts

i dont know where your pulling oil cooler lines from, there not on the car yet

like said above, the small line is for the coolant overflow tank
the big ones are -16an they are plenty big and are the same size thats used on 1000hp+ drag cars

the coolant comes out of the back of the head, into the thermostat housing, then to the upper radiator bung, then the lower one goes into the waterpump

right i was talking about the black metal pipe in the background thats connected to the aluminum fitting u made few pages ago on the left and then the hose leads up under the IC pipe, not the tiny overflow line...

Those types of fittings look like the fittings used on oil coolers as why i called them that.

It just looks like its about 1" in dia which is not much for a coolant line.

you use like -8an on an oil cooler, v8s prob use -10 for oil. that hose is -16 its the biggest most companys sell. its all you need, the rubber hoses on our cars stock are huge and prob overkill, the hose i.d is prob 7/8"- 1"

Hose ID on a stock hose is 32mm/1.25". I was a little skeptical about the hose ends, too, but if it works that's cool. Drag cars don't really tax the cooling system since there are only busrts of WOT lasting a only few seconds. They also use a tiny radiator.

I agree with your logic.

true, but more hp= more heat

i think they will flow perfectly fine.

Since 2008 you have been milking this thread and still on a garage, and whatever to then slam it against a wall ten minutes later.

You could have easily buy a beater Miata, slap a cheapo EBAY turbo and be drifting long long time ago. Oh, let me guess you want to do it right all from the get go...

The cylinder head job is a waste of time, have seen beater 240sx, mustangs and even Miatas who own the pavement better than any high end heavily modded car. Its ridiculous, before I forget, you got my attention, LOL!

Please close this thread, one thing is to talk about an engine build, another is that it goes on a tangent and start talking about drifting.

Do not get pissed off if many people, like me, consider drifting the gayiest "sport" ever, its dead, well, the import scene is dead, get over with, slap some used tires, a chinacharger and post some real drifting videos see if you walk the talk. Besides having my attention, you are just another wannabe poser, you are definitely late.

Guys, not to beat a rather uninteresting horse, but take a look over at Parker or Aeroquip for pressure drop (delta p) on hoses and hose fittings. Something like that -16 hose with a sweep 90 is designed for running many many gallons per minute. I don't know what our water pump puts out, but I'm sure it is much lower than the design limits of these hoses. That being said, I can't figure out why an auto manufacturer would use 1-1/2" hoses on this stuff.

I ran the numbers on the -6 fuel lines we run, even at 255lph (the h is the operative factor here), the delta p on those lines was almost too small to calculate, even with a few 90s and tees added in.

Granted, I only did hydraulic design for like two years, which was 10 years ago now, but I remember using these -16s on some giant industrial hydraulic pumps. Someone smarter than me can tell us the numbers, but that 1" hose is all good.

First of all the radiator is right on top of the intecooler, HELLO?

All that heat from the radiator is going to get soaked in by the intercooler.

Finish that garage queen and burn some rubber!

You remind me a guy in one of those Del SOl forums where everybody was UHH and AHH for years, another one who also had a Mazda 5 build thread and the same shyt, all other users were sobbing and "I want to see your car" and all that car kinky stuff and then at the end the project went south or simply it just remained a garage queen.

Its cool that you do stuff to the car, but just because you do "more" does not mean is going to be super bad ***. I have seen it plenty of time on mx3.com, Mazdaforums.com and clubprotege.com. Spend 3,000 on a turbo, buy brand everything and 4 years down the road dont know why the car is just doing 14s on the quarter mile.
