Been lurking for some time, mostly peeing in the pool over at Club Roadster. Now that forced induction is in the near future I feel it's time to make friends. I'm OK at making things clean and wrenching, but boost and tuning are not my strong points. GT2560R, ARTtech, MSPNP, and some other goodies are about to go into the machine so I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for you swollen brains.
I keep a project journal on my site here for those who would like some more info.
Thanks! Artie has told me about the Mob, joining up.
HUH?!?! You spoke to Artie? OH NO! Damn, I hope he didn't leave a bad impression.
j/k - Artie is a good guy and very helpful. The mob is spread out across the tri-state area, so we don't get together too often. You can expect a few tech days throughout the summer where you can pick up a lot of turbo information. We have the notorious Paul and Turbotim in our stable. With their enormous amounts of FI knowledge, you don't have an excuse to not be turbo'd soon.
Read through the blog. First of all, you should look into a coolant reroute. The #4 cylinder that had rod knock and took out your stock motor is notorious for not getting even cooling, which might have broke the old motor.
Also, any idea where those turn signals are from? ebay?
I got to the dyno day around 2PM, after all the Miatas left :(
I have an M-Tuned rear housing, Davies Craig electric water pump / controller, and Mishimoto X-Line radiator waiting to go in! Just need some time to put everything in, I'll make a post about it and possibly dyno to see if the WP frees up horsepower.
The turn signals and tails are tinted with nightshade.
