But please, tell me more about all the miata's with honda radiators that you've run? You ARE speaking from experience obviously, to be this confident........right?
That half width radiator fits like a late 80's early 90's honda. Not exactly modern, not exactly aluminum blocks.

Coadingparadox(sp?) Has ran this setup on his car for a couple years. With a full size 2 core rad the car never got hot, the smaller 3 core rad...WITHOUT an a/a intercooler core and oil cooler sitting right in front of it and with a reroute should be more than enough cooling for my application.

Yeah you're probably right, and like I said both you and codingparadox know what you're doing so I'm sure it will be tweaked to perfection. I just dislike vague blatantly false statements like vehicular made. What IC core are you using?

What planet are you on? The fact that you managed to melt down one singular Miata engine isn't an argument for anything. And, you still haven't done anything to support your argument other than get mad. I said that his setup should work, and now you're agreeing with me and still acting like I'm the dumb ***.

I'm done responding to your moronic posts and derailing OP's cool thread.
Go ask Savington, Emilio, or any knowledgeable miata company/track racer what they think about your statement and learn for yourself. The fact that you're arguing using some retarded vague blanket statements tells me you know dick all about the topic, and have all of zero experience with it.

So far the ratio of documented well working small radiator setups is slim to none. Only reason I am encouraging OP is because he's a smart guy, a competitive racer and fabricator, and I know he'll be able to overcome the obstacles that come with this sort of setup. I was in no way agreeing with you saying that it should work because it works for some street driven honda somwhere

Take from what what you will.

Why does this feel like someone needs to add the Xzibit "Yo Dawg I heard you like superchargers" meme to the above.

While your at it,why not remove the rest of the cooling elbow in front of the engine and put a freeze plug. That's nice stuff inside your bay !

Not bad for making less power than the old setup.

The Miata lives again. Just started it....stared on the first crank. Spare blower is on the car, new transmission installed, new clutch and pressure plate installed, new lower temp thermostat installed, new 36-2 crank trigger wheel installed, new shifter in (the new gearbox combined with this shifter....feels like a bolt action rifle).......I think I'm going to take a short breather and finish up.

Today is a good day. Finally got ours finished up today as well and it started on the first crank as well.

If you look close at the picture of the engine bay....which was taken today....the cams are spinning....so....yea. It runs.

Nice edit Leafy.

But no...it doesn't still misfire under load.

Are you venting the valve cover to the supercharger intake through a catch can?

It might be better to vent the gasses to atmo instead of going into the intake with them. Oil vapor has a lot lower octane rating that gasoline and the chance of generating knock in a supercharged car is greater than if vented to atmosphere.

I miss the dryer hose. Have you killed any coils yet due to the heat? Is that still a stock power steering pump?
