Found an old picture from ThePass build. And his spoiler. Going to try and do something similar. Need to try and draw it up, then get it cut.

Um, people might get the wrong impression if you're in the 3" club, especially if you roll up in a Miata.

As diameter it's respectable. Not awesome, but respectable. Length is a different matter entirely.

First step in the bushing replacement. Pressing out old bushing in the ABS spindles, and welding in the spherical sleeves. These will get powdercoated before they go on. **** midwest salt, this **** is ridiculous. I had to grind so much metal off just to get clean metal to weld to.







Yank's car is living at my garage for a bit. Going to start updating his thread soon too. But FE3 **** for you ******** who don't visit his thread.











Got to drive a K-swap, that was cool. I still would rather have a v8 if I get rid of a BP.

Nothing? What happened to all of you. I expected some hate for at least something in that post.

Too on topic for you guys?

I'll bite

Why's that front bumper gotta be cheaper than a new oem one, or even a used stock one.

I'm gonna buy one and close it off all crusher style.

What is FE3, and why's the catch can in the trunk?

Wrong thread bruh. FE3 = kia sportage motor. Legendary mazda motor that is good for like 600hp stock or something.

https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...6/#post1296547

Thats the dry sump oil tank.

Did you want me to cut up my old bumper still?

This thread is never the wrong thread.

I don't understand wanting to swap a 4 banger. Everything else stock is useless past stock power levels anyway. 5.3 truck blocks are cheaper than kia sportage anything. They too are good for more than 600, but they make torque on their own already anyway.

Meh. Not my cup of tea.

I wouldn't mind a chunk of bumper. If I can find out what I'm doing with that I'll actually do something with the rest of the car. I'm not buying a $400 front bumper though, **** that.

true. at the beginning this used a stock subframe etc.

Ben has stated more than once that a v8 is a cheaper way to make the power he is making. The project is fun though.

What's he doing to move oil around, is it just the stock pump?

You're going to love the MR Shifter more than the 3 inches.

Don't skimp on the grease when you put it in...
