I dont have boost as yet but i am preparing for it. Matter of fact my car doesnt even run, not exactly sure why but i figure its the ecu.
I have a TEC3 sitting around and ive ordered the trigger kit from racing mazda (they arent the promptest at getting stuff out but so long as i get it).
So i started taking out the wiring harness parts that i dont need but then i remembered the lightweightmiata.com project and decided i would try to get the most i could out.
Spent the whole day pulling wires and disconnecting. Ive clipped every wire coming off the ecu as far as i could down the harness. I'm also taking out all the airbag sensors...those little bad boys are heavy! Just have to rerun the wires and tape everything up. I also have to figure out a few wires to run to the tec but with that should be a minor thing.
While i was under the hood i got tired of screwing around with wires so i decided to get started on the coolant reroute. I've taken the thermostat housing off and am going to get it modified. I will pick up some 1" aluminum tubing and some rubber hoses tommorow along with a new thermostat. Pix should be up in a few days of the completed conversion.
I also cut the bracing off from the underside of the hood....its a floppy thing now but i cant see it weighing more than 5lbs.
I have some bomz coil overs on the way and will be ordering the fatcat mounts this week
I'm hoping to have a functional car in a week or 2 so i can stop buming rides every where lol
