Picked this up for $40 with a rad, flywheel, clutch, intake, maf and full stock exhaust. Thanks to @rkim for the hook up! Your new setup looks like it will dominate!

If anyone can help me find a used MICROsquirt v3 that would be appreciated! I want to get the new microsquirt since I will be building my engine harness from scratch and the micro seems like the way I want to go about it.

Cheers!

I have EV14 550's in the mail for after i get the car up and running on stockers; $40. they arent likely a direct fit, but its not going to be a big deal to get them to fit.

Picked up my seat.

injectors are in. They don't fit the stock IM or rail with the orings they have, but I will be making my own manifold anyways.


I have a turbo coming to me (SR t25) and a handful of aftermarket gauges ($40). Pretty pumped this is coming together.

Adding to my turbo collection. I picked up a Nissan CA18det t25 for $30 in great condition...



Left to right: good ca18 t25, broken 2860rs, gtir t28 likely in need of a rebuild.

I will rebuild the gtir turbo anyways and experiment to see what I like.

The CA turbo seems it will run out of steam around the 200 to 220 hp on full steam but the gtir turbo should be good up to 300hp.

I have a 1.6-no need to plan for that.

I bought one turbo for $30 since I know that the 1.6 will feel like its slow as *****.



Plan is still to get it running asap with as little investment as possible.
I need brake rotors, race spec wheels and tires and i need to fab up some shock top hats.

Once its running I will add a few parts to get it boosting. Still planning to keep the cost below $2k.


Invested so far:

Turbo $30
1.6L with all the trimmings $40
econoline 550cc ev14 injectors $40
1.8 brake calipers $90
seat $50
rear spoiler $10


Total Invested $260

Big costs will be the Microsquirt for my system. in the 300's depending where i get it and what kit i get.

Plan is to run a t2 flanged turbo so I can have a few turbos with a few tunes... so i can quickly swap a turbo around depending on what kind of event I will be doing.

small CA18det turbo for autoX (if I feel like standing in the sun all day for 3 minutes of driving)

GTIR T28 turbo for road race/drag race. the 0.86a/r hotside will really open it up but it will hurt the spool. couple that with that its a moderately large turbo to begin with.

I am in no means trying to make a chump car, or have it be shitty.

I realize that generally cost implies that the build will be low end, but I need the car to look nice, have a clean install, be reliable and all.


I am able to do everything that I need done from raw materials, such as the piping, manifold, exhaust, seat mounts, etc.

The expensive items I cant make myself (microsquirt, clutch, etc) I will try my damndest to get them used for a good price. The one item that I have been trying to find (to no avail) is the microsquirt.

But this does seem like a way to never have to worry about over heating without having to buy a $500 radiator.

There is never a need to buy a $500 radiator. You all have talked each other to no end about overheating because of 3 degrees.

I know some of you might not like me saying it but if you just did all of the work on your own without reading forums you would not likely have gigantic radiators that hold gallons on gallons of coolant.

I will be using a stock radiator for the time being. I dont anticipate it will work that great, being that its pretty abused. But there will never be a need for $500 radiators, ever. If im really concerned or if the stocker starts to overheat, I will pick up a NASCAR takeoff rad that has a built in oil cooler for $100.


ps, the rad on his miata is where my legs would be.

It seems to be a serious issue on actual fast track cars. Even my auto-x car gets hotter than I'd like but thats because it drives flatout for 60 seconds and then gets parked, and I have less radiator ducting than stock, because I didnt have time to do it and didnt think it would be that important on an auto-x car. I'd love to run a random huge cheap radiator, but I cant fit it under the hood legally, or really put it somewhere else effectively.

If you properly set up your car with some ducting, or placed the intercooler in a proper location you wouldnt have issues with overheating either.

Ducting does make a difference. There is a reason mazda did it, and it wasnt to spend money on things that arent required.

No ****, but even a car with 100% correct ducting with a turbo will over heat with the stock radiator if driven fast, according to people who've done it before. If you're going to be willing to hack up the front of the car to fit some nascar takeoff radiator (its a bit too wide and WAY too tall, and too thick, with the ports in the wrong places), why not hack up some other part of the car so you can get better weight distribution.

Don't mean to interrupt you ladies but just finally caught up in this thread after awhile away from it. Good luck Matt! Hope you get what you need out of that motor.
