hi guys !
Some of you may have seen my post in the build section, but my friend and I are building ourselves a miata each.
I have some questions for you guys, and I know some of you miata yodas out here know everything there is to know about everything, ever.
I'm the guy out of us 2 that's charged with doing the shopping and choosing the right parts for the cars so... I chose to go for a gt2560r by garrett.
Thing is, there are 2 types of 2560...
Garrett GT2560R-466541-1 (GT28R) Dual Ball Bearing Turbo w/Internal WG
and this one
Garrett GT2560R-466541-4 (GT28R) Dual Ball Bearing Turbo w/Internal WG
the main difference i found in between the two was some cast divider and inconel blades... which sounds nice but why are they priced the same?
Most importantly, which one should I purchase?
on to the second question :
When it's gonna come down to bolting up the exhaust manifold (you know, a turbo exhaust manifold)... should I put a gasket in there? and if so, which one to pick??
we were trying to do a timing belt job on our engines today, and **** happened.
We couldn't lock the camshafts in place when we removed the tensioners and a camshaft spun on both engines (yes).
Now, both engines are off timing and we still have to rotate the crank...
anybody has a procedure to re-time our engines and if we are to do this job ourselves, should we consider buying those fidanza cam gears??
fourth question :
where do you guys buy all your performance parts?? I know the main ones but if there is one you had a specific, memorable experience with (positive would be good) please say so!
fifth question :
my friend and me both removed our ac compressor and were wondering how much they were worth? (55 000kms)
I think that is about it for now ! please help me?
