First I'm going to introduce myself and give you a little background, then I'll share my boost plans, read up, I'm a good story teller
Hi all, my names Ryan, I'm from Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've had two miatas, I sold my 96 with race lands and xxrs for a decent profit a while back to pay a few bills, ended up buying a KA24 s13, and blew it up in 2 hours
and I tore the engine down to get read for a rebuild, was gonna use the ka as a spare and SR swap it, but money got tight and i lost interest, so I traded the s13 to my buddy, who's name is Buddy, he owns a machine shop and happened to have 93 na6 that their shop rebuilt 4k miles ago. He really wanted the 240 and was stoked it was ready for him to put back together and get it running because he obviously gets parts quick, and discounted extensively, and obviously, free machine work. So we clean traded, both cars clean titles, and I'm in love with my new Miata, made me realize 240s are awesome, but my heart lies with the roadster. Now ill list my car and it's highlights, keep in mind I'm into the car around $2500 (great ******* deal IMO)
178,xxx fairly easy miles on the car, Buddy got it off a older guy I think
shop redid the engine at 174k, the car runs phenomenally
f1 racing stage 3 6 puck with a light weight chromoly flywheel
Freshly rebuilt Torsen LSD rear
Kyb Gr2 adjustable shocks with lowering springs
Aftermarket front turn signals
Front strut brace
Single loop roll bar with 4 mounting surfaces (two rear diagonals) - not sure of brand, looks like it may be custom
NB wheels sprayed gold with brand new Toyos
14 in. Stock sport wheels (not daisys) with good rubber
Interior in great shape, Im more than pleased with it.
5 month old top with glass window and defrosters
typical miata rockers, other than that there is no rust , car is really clean and one dent on rear quarter that will be taken care of
Now my boost plans:
I'm getting a new job in the near future that will fund my build over the next year or so, and I've been doing a lot of homework and have decided on the following to run a solid, reliable setup.
ARP head studs and cometic head gasket
Megan racing manifold and down pipe
T25 sr20det turbocharger internal wastegate
Megasquirt ecu (buddy has one and a manifold he's saving for me, he was going to boost this car)
CX racing FMIC setup
Mishimoto aluminum rad, which I already have(but thinking of just buying all brand new)
Greddy BOV and boost controller
AEM wideband (as well as some other gauges and doohickeys, planning on making something to house the electronics under the radio, and relocating the stereo to the glovebox)
Plan to get a solid tune, which I still have to do more research on, but luckily one of my local friends has 4 miatas, which two are boosted on MS, so he should have no problems helping me out on the tune (but debating on a professional dynotune, your thoughts?
Plan on boosting anywhere between 8-12 pounds, my hopes are with the healthy motor and good tune, I can run 10 pounds and be reliable, but realistically I'm leaning towards 8 pounds and I'll daily that, hoping for anywhere between 150-170hp.
I'll post some pics of the car now, thanks for reading all that if you did, cheers!
