99mx5 EFR build
 
18 Attachment(s)
I'm finally adding a turbo to my car. I bought a supercharger when I used to autocross. I then started to race on a track. Everything was great until I blew up the blower. I removed it then continued to race naturally aspirated. I eventually became a better driver without the boost, so now its time to add boost again.

So far I have added:

-Enhanced DIYPNP
-Precision intercooler
-ACT clutch and street disc
-TEIN Flex coilovers
-PWR radiator
-SS clutch, brake lines
-Carbotech XP10 and XP8 brakes
-Boss frog rollbar
-Custom CAI airbox
-DIY coolant reroute upper and lower
-PS delete with welded input shaft
-Ultrashield Rally Sport seats
-Simpson camlock harnesses
-Squaretop manifold
-COPS
-Walbro 255HP
-Other smaller details that I forgot

I contacted Abe at ARTech for SS coolant and oil lines, a top mount ramhorn manifold, SS DP and exhaust with Magnaflow resonator and muffler. I purchased a BorgWarner EFR 6258 and sent it off to him.

Here are the pics of his progress...

In on this, was wondering if you were making build thread. Can't wait to see it in person and possibly replicate it. Man that manifold is sexy.

Yay target piwer?

99mx5 01-06-2012 02:21 AM

No target yet, just hoping to not pop the stock engine until its built.

I'm thinking on getting forged rods and pistons and replacing the stockers before it needs to be rebuilt. I also see a six-speed in my future.

jbrown7815 01-06-2012 02:22 AM

From what I've read it will be tough to not blow a stock motor, especially with that turbo and manifold.

Yo Ari!

Golferluke 01-06-2012 08:22 AM

that manifold is sexy, pic number 4 confused the crap out of me for some reason lol

I see the 255 in your sig but what injectors are you going to run?

99mx5 01-06-2012 03:44 PM

I will be getting 560s

mx592 01-07-2012 03:56 PM

Very sweet. Those EFR's are so long! I will be interested to see how you run the intake and intercooler piping.

TurboTim 01-07-2012 09:39 PM

Yeah man, very very nice. GOod job ABe!

yank 01-08-2012 01:33 AM

Sweet manifold Abe! It'll be interesting to see some spool data with that efr and a long runner manifold. Whittyworks was at atmospheric at like 1900 rpm with his logish style mani. Keep up the good work!

Updates needed STAT

I just ordered the intercooler piping kit. I will have the charge pipes welded.

Here is my DIY coolant reroute and lower reroute. I used a broken aluminum race jack for the parts. I posted this in the DIY section, but I'll link the pics here for completeness.

The upper reroute uses the moss spacer, a Kia thermostat cover and a GMC truck water hose.

I like that reroute way better than what i did. Sucks you're going to have to remove the rad hose to change the belt tho..

I think the solution to that is to ditch the AC.
