Yep. Swapping and documenting my first K-swap with David has consumed my life for the last 3 days (50+hrs). I'll have an email out to everyone this week.

I managed to fix the stud with a few taps of a body hammer (see my build thread w/ pics), was fairly easy and didn't require too much persuasion. Was a close one though, those threads were tough to get started. Stage8 hardware sits very nicely as well;

You're going to have to clock that bearing housing, which means disconnecting the wastegate actuator and mount. I know you know, but in case so I know you know I know you know.

After seeing these photos, I can say that the EFR exhaust chamber casting has come a LONG way since I got my EFR6258 and explains why the Stage8 fasteners work on these newer castings when I doubted that they'd fit - there's just not enough clearance on the inside for the earlier castings :(

Currently I'm using the Nissan turbo nut locking tabs and suspect I'll need to continue using them :(

If you encounter clearance issues between the tabs and the housing, you can always trim the edge of the tab. If you can fit the nut, you can fit the tab with a little massaging.

I've gotten a couple of questions that I think I'll get again, so I'll answer them publicly. Our oil line kit is configured to use the oil pressure adapter block on all 94-05 motors, including 94-95 engines that have a driver-side feed. You'll simply leave that oil feed capped. For MSMs, you'll cap the factory coolant and oil feed lines as well as the factory oil drain line and configure the oil feed/drain lines like a regular NB2 would.

Nope. If you are part of the group buy, he gave an option of having the lines shipped later with the downpipe.

Wow. It has gotten so much easier to turbo a Miata since I did it.

This is on my wish list.

Downpipe first article. God, this is sexy. So cool to see yet another idea that I thought would be a pipe-dream (four bends on the same piece of pipe) become a reality. (lol, "pipe dream")



Yeah, I think these welds will do Four welds in the entire part (six if you count the O2 sensors). This is what you get when everything is made in the USA.
