It will deff get attention from the cops boost creep will be ok as long as I can keep it below 14psi. If it gets higher than that I will need to change it but I think the 50mm wastegate will keep it down.

Not my cup of tea. Sorry dude, It's cool that you are doing the swap, but I am into much more "sano" installs. Im sure the thing will run like a raped ape, but it is not what I envision when I think of an engine swap. With your set up you are more likely to get grins and giggles from the guys you want to race...you know the ones with the clean Z06, and the "it looks like it belongs on the show room floor porsche" than any takers. I am willing to bet they will call it the fastest (insert your description here) they have ever seen, but you wont have any of them feeling that their cars are inferior to your creation.

I give you props for what you are doing, and there is something to be said for the straight line performance you are going to have. But there is also something to be said for elegant engineering solutions, and I hate to say it but this project is anything but elegant, I don't care how little you spend to get it done.

That being said, I respect that it is you ride; whatever makes you happy is cool. It's just not the way I would go about it.

Good luck with the rest of your build I will still be checking it out, and enjoying your progress. Cause weather I agree with your approach or not, I am a gearhead and I like performance, you are a gearhead and like performance so I respect what you do!

I get what youre saying, but I think the lack of elegance makes it cool

I love the way the flyin miata track dog car looks because of its lack of elegance. Its all go, no show.



just my .02

What? that thing may be all go but it is engineered to the teeth. Look how nice the flares are and the front air dam...looks awesome and is functional. The engine is underneath a hood. The exhaust is not an after thought, stuck through the hood. There isin"t a true miata fan around that scratches their head when they look at the track dog.

Ok got some more work done today got the radiator and intercooler final mounted and got the upper radiator hose done. I also ran the turbo feed line and started the drain line but I need one more part. I got the oil pan done and it dosen't leak had it filled with water for half and hour and not a drop. Will post more progress tomorrow.

The bell housing is offset on the 2JZ like an inch and a half so it looks off center but it is lined up perfect I can assure you.

Is that radiator going to provide enough cooling?? There just doesn't look like there is enough surface area to be efficient.

You will have to report back and let us know if you run into any issues with cooling.

I'll let you know on the cooling the motors aren't known to run hot and the turbo is oil cooled only so it should be good to go.

Ok got the oil pan mounted the exhaust manifold mounted for the final time, lower intake manifold mounted to the final time, and some other odds and ends finished up. I'm waiting for the fuel pump to come in so I can put the bar in and finish the body welding on the passenger side. Here is a pic of the oil pan in the car.
