hello, from chicago, just got a fm turbo 99.
I just got a nice looking turbo Miata set up for drift. I'm a DE road track guy so I have a bit of work to get this car set up for road track but hopefully it wont be that bad. right now it looks like I need to spend a about 500 bucks to get it ready, plus brake pads and tires, might need different wheels.
this is my list of to do's to get it the car ready by the end of march. the car has a fairly extensive list of parts that should make the the conversion to road track pretty easy. everyone says that heat management will be the challenge but I dont really know if the issues are with water or oil or both.
raise ride height 1.5 -2' or to aprox spec miata
install stock rear upper control arm if needed
modify existing seat position
check brake pad wear
hang oil cooler and canton thermostat
delete hood spacer
install removable wheel adapter
install oil cooler sandwitch adapter - with port for pressure/ temp sender?
install oil temp and pressure gauge
gretty heat sheild for turbo and or blanket
catch can tap /valve cover?
replace turbo studs with inconel from FM
install water injection -buy tank gauge and fittings, and new jet.
