Good to hear another guy running that intake. I'm torn between putting all my turbo goodies on the Lexus or getting a GE engine with a th400 trans and dropping everything in the Miata

Put the stuff on the lexus and then take you time and build a miata. The lexus is easy bolt the stuff on and run a safc and your done the miata is a long process and you will have something fun to drive in the mean time.

That has to be a sweet feeling.

I'm all kinds of in love with this...and don't know why. The idea makes me want to punch ricers...but seeing it done gives me an outrageous boner that would get my license suspended.

To make sure everyone is clear on this I am not a track person of any type even though the car will see the drag strip and the road coarse at least once I am not sure what type of car I really want I just wanted my own car one no one else really has and when someone looks at it no matter who they say what the hell is that. It is super exciting to know it will move just have to do some more little things before the first test drive and then I will post pics of that. Also if any one says anything about my My Little Pony its the mascot for the car it showed up on the car the first day of the build but no one knew who put it there it it has been there the rest of the time I think its a good luck charm of some sort. Also if nothing else I hope this build makes people take chances even if you don't know the right way to do something try and if it fails do it again lets see some more new swaps no matter what they are. Ill post more vids when I get them.

Ok now for some more info on the build if anyone else wants to do this build this is good news. You can use the stock miata clutch master cylinder and make a custom line to the stock supra slave cylinder and it works. Also to make things easy you should have a MAF adapter made like the one in the pic below I made this so I could notch my charge pipe and mount it directly to that instead of having that big MAF housing thing inline this makes it look cleaner and one less place for a boost leak.


On another note we bled the clutch line and the car moved like a foot forward and then back under its own power. Today is a good day.

Tomorrow I am going to try and get the adapter welded in so I can at least drive it to the end of the driveway and back but I guess we will have to wait in see worse case monday I'll get a vid when it happens.

I see that the new MAF plate is welded in. It is amazing what can get done when you leave your car somewhere for the day. For an update I have all the intercooler pipes hooked up with the lower one needing minor modification and still need to hook up my water lines and fix my oil pan leak then it will be time for a good drive. As well as putting the new springs on the front.

For now it deff going through the hood I think I am going to look at ways to make it go down one day in the not so distant future but this works for now. I still have a good bit of the small things to worry about so that is low on the list and I already need a new hood due to someone smashing a corner of it a while back so I am going to cut the bad hood for the test fitment and most likely next winter get a new hood and run exhaust.

the 2jz with all the acc. shed off and a w58 trans weighs only 100lbs more than a fully dressed BP.

Also i thought you all would want to know that this is not an expensive build due to the fact that i got the running motor for $100 and the trans clutch and fly wheel for $400. It is going to run a supra computer for the engine and the miata computer for the body. the shifter location is only and inch forward of the stock miata location but i think i can deal with that. This is all being done in a garage in the little old town of Mt. Airy MD with a bunch of 24 year old guys who have to much time on their hands if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

and if any one was wondering it should handle ok still and all i want to do is make 50 year old guys with their 03 corvettes and 20 year old girlfreinds cry everyday.
excuse me sir. i was 22 with my corvette and my 25 year old girlfriend was married with kids!

Well if you can get your car out to York it would be the star of the show assuming the 2jz miata is not there. I would love to see a turbo LS mustang in person.

The notch has to come out and I never said "you" totaled it. lol Also it doesn't matter weather you are 22 or 50 I'm not talking about the guys that are like most of us on this forum you know the kind of people I am talking about. I have a corvette its the fastest thing in the world lol. I will beat anything. Yea those guys. I happen to like corvettes it was just one version of a circumstance.
