Not much to update on this car yet...life is slow and everyone around here thinks Miata's are gold mines!


However there are some pretty big things happening in the near future!
-I am moving into a new house with a garage on the property, so I wont have to drive an hour to work on my car! And;
-I am getting a few side jobs building Turbo manifolds again to generate some funds to light this project UP!


And because people like pictures...

Some pics of a turbo and wastegate I have in my posession right now that I am building a B series turbo manifold for a nice Honda Civic!

If your interested in following the fabrication process, I will be posting updates on my Facebook Page!

That's a sweet deal about the garage. Tends to make things a tad easier.

Its for a Honda B series.

So a few reasons... The head tapers out at the top, this guy has a vented valve cover, the turbo points to the left, so it sits. In towards the flange.

This is one of my small diameter runner manifolds. This car is running a 2871 tial vband. It should be really responsive and perfect for tight tracks or autocross but still have upwards of 350whp

Wow that looks nice. I liked your FB page a couple weeks ago. How many turbo manifolds for Miata's have you done so far? I'm in the market for one very soon

I have done 3 early on in learning to fab. Im not trying to commercial post here.


This Honda job will upgrade my new garage so I can get it ready for my Miata. I am hoping to be out lapping with it this year...but we will see, since we just bought a house. If anything I hope to have it running stock...stock 1.6 diff, stock engine...whatever I can find for that be it 1.6 or 1.8.

Anyways...
Weld **** before I ran out of Argon... (from my facebook page)

Anyone want to buy a RHD miata shell? Absolutely no rust.

I think it would be easier to find something to do this project as a complete car.
I will make a for sale thread to see if anyone wants it...


And some more fabrication ****.

3" indestructable vbands.



3"-4" adapter for blast pipe tips.



Picked up some more argon, so I will have some updates for my welding projects come next week. Obviously nothing on my miata yet though.

Hey man I remember this car! I was a bit late at the time in getting in on your part out but nonetheless looking forward to your updates.

Not sure if you'll need anything but I'll be pulling my 1.6 out probably July but if you need any stock 1.6 or 1.8 parts let me know.

I'm out west in KW area but gf's in Ottawa so I pass by Kingston every now and then. I also see Jimmy C in Ottawa now and then too so many ways to work things out if you need anything.

Wait, are you giving up already?

I kinda expected that when I saw all the wires on the ground and no progress since then lol.

Let me know the deal with your engine dude. I will be interested if i still have the car.

People on kijiji and crap think Miata parts are gold.

Send me a PM and im sure we can work something out. I also have a friend with a scrap yard that has a ~2000 kia sportage that I could likely have pick a FE3 out of.

Made some welds.



Maybe I should make a fabrication thread. Lol


Miata isn't gone yet, so you never know.

Hopefully I'll be competing in the $2013 challenge with you. The idea of building a shell up is not a bad one, but I would highly recommend picking up a parts car that has been in an accident rather than trying to piece a whole car together. Down that way lies madness!
