Ya what hornetball said,

Be careful with the nylon. I gave myself some extra slack on the coolant line and oil line 'log manifold', but still noticed them melting slightly, put some heat tape on and haven't had a problem since, so just keep your eye on it.

Thanks for the first hand experience with it CBM. I have some fire sleeve wrap left over from my coolant lines that I'll just use metal zip ties with for the 4-6" that are closest to the header.

Got my intake manifold back on, oil drain and oil feed routed correctly so all that is left is:

-misc vacuum line routing
-Cut 45 silicone elbow for compressor outlet
-cut aluminum pipe to length and get someone to bead roll it for intake manifold piping(no need for BOV port)
-weld 1/8NPT into said aluminum
-make a new air intake box to accommodate new filter position
-make a new COP harness(old one iffy)
-run downpipe only and take it to an exhaust shop to get the DP tied into the midpipe

I hopefully can get this all done tomorrow work permitting...

I'm still waffling on nylon or ss for my drain. I detest SS but I'm worried about melting nylon seeing as it runs super close to one of the primaries.

Any chance you have pics from a slightly lower angle? I'm curious as to how all this is actually routed. Good show as usual

Except that firesleeve (especially black firesleeve) doesn't do squat for radiation.

You need something reflective. Seriously.

Right, like one of the eleventy-billion reflective sleeve products on the market.

FM owes me like $300 in store credit, I'm just not sure I want to spend $45 on a radiator hose.

OH MY GOD I think FM finally updated their website

When you buy Mil-spec wiring they make you buy a minimum amount...think I'm good on 18g milspec...forever.



Wiring is serious business. No solder planned except for the igniter(wish I could just use something else).

Honestly the more the car goes race car the less I'm caring about minor dings and scratches. I'll never not clean, but some things are hard to avoid. When tearing Into your engine bay as often as I have.

So many good wiring things! I'm really glad I'm letting my friend build my engine harness rather than dealing with that headache! Although I do still need to buy all the wires for him to start once I get my engine in the car.

That hotside looks so good in your engine bay! You're making me want to go braided nylon for my oil cooler and catch can lines pretty badly too! Think I'm going to do stainless for the turbo lines though after the discussion in here about it

I did the same damn thing on the first AN fittings I made, then I used painters tape and wrapped it around the part I needed to grip too, and used an adjustable wrenches.

Now why did I think this was so hard the first time? New connectors, quality wire, decent crimpers and self adhering tape made getting to this step take 20 minutes.

No service loops just more wire exposed after the connector than I did before to give it more range of motion/flex. Trying to decide if I want to even use shrink wrap or just use the magic tape I was sent.

Work had been kicking my *** these past few days so I haven't touched it much. Getting gheld up by the cold side pipe getting an aluminum NPT bung welded onto it.

Had to change the pipe since I no longer need the BOV bung and I think the Flyin' Miata pipe is a piece of ****. The curve they added makes it so difficult to get it to slip on easily. Not even needed either. Just bought an 18" straight aluminum pipe. Getting some beads welded on as well since I can't find anyone that can bead roll pipe. I know you can DIY but I don't have time to can it all up.

Reason I dont have time is due to reserving a dyno time on Wednesday in Las Vegas to get my **** properly tuned. I can do it, but there is a lot of frustrated remarks along the way.

Should be fun to do an allofit run and then detune it for spool priority.

My compressor piping just BARELY works. Like a very tight glove. Bought a 45 elbow and it just barely let my one piece pipe couple without causing a pinched area near the intercooler. Would be nice if I could clock the turbo straight down but it works with no compromise so win!





Also love the new 2.5 air filter inlet. Made the new filter fit perfect with no shoving or smashing.



Just need to finish everything before O' Dark Thirty with our new neighbors. Don't want them to hate me by starting a downpipe exit Miata at 2am...
