So, first post eh. Hello from Reading in the UK. Greetings all
I can normally be found loitering around UK VW forums as my main car is a 1983 Mk1 Golf (Rabbit) GTI, fitted with a 2.0l 16V engine. I also have a knackered old Vauxhall Corsa, a Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat and a Honda Vision 50.
I've just picked up my first 'Miata' this weekend. It's an imported 1990 1.6 Eunos Roadster in Classic Red.
It's running a GReddy TD04H Turbo conversion, with:
- GReddy std solid intake pipes, Turbo Manifold and Downpipe, Vortech FMU.
- BIPES timing control.
It also has (Spec/makes unconfirmed):
- Water injection system.
- FMIC (Maybe RX7, pipework make unknown).
- Possibly an O2 Clamp (I think it is anyway).
- Cheap boost Gauge, Shift light etc.
- 1.8 Spec Brakes.
- 1.8 Spec Clutch.
- Torsen LSD.
- Lower Braces, Roll Hoop.
It came with a R/R trace from last year showing:
- Power peaks of 155hp @ ~ 5500rpm, running approx 5.5psi.
- Torque peak ~148 @ ~5250rpm (then tails off)
- Small flat in power and dip in Torque ~ 4000rpm
I'm new to turbos (and MX5s!). So I'll probably be asking for some help to identify some of the bits that have been added before I start changing anything. I got it for a pretty decent price as it's kinda tatty, and comes with no service history, but should be a good craic anyway!
So order of service is:
a) Wiring in a lighter socket, It's been removed and I can't charge my damn phone!
b) Identify what everything under the bay and dash is and what it's meant to do.
c) Check it's all actually working and tidy it up, the wiring is all over the shop, pretty messy.
d) Full service, not sure to what extent is required but I guess Oil/Coolant and filters as a minimum, maybe Cam and drive belts
'Apparently' I dropped my Camera on a pub crawl other week so all the pictures are slightly out of focus and the screen only half works...I'm trawling through them to pick out the usable ones and I'll get them up online over the next few days.
Umm. Is that enough for a first post?
