I got half of what I wanted. Could have been worse.

I like your knock sensor. Where did you get it? With det cans, I sometimes don't trust my hearing, especially given all the noise at a typical dyno location -- I like the idea of a clear display.

Hello Rick,

I have bought it from here:

http://www.phormula.com

Mine is the KS-4 but I also have the Interface Kit so I can connect my headphones to it, like some electronic det cans. I have bought this because a friend of mine has this brand in high regard, his work is mapping Rally Cars and Hill Climb cars, so I followed his advice.

Hello guys,
I´m frustrated, I am really frustrated. Let me tell you guys the whole story.

After I detonated the engine I bought two engines, one Bp4w that was from a salvage car and one 94 Engine that had the head removed due to a head gasket problem. My goal was to change the belts/water pump on the Bp4w and keep the 94 Engine for a forged build during the summer.

As the BP4W arrived I noticed that I looked like a pile of ****. I am not kidding, it seemed the Anchor of the Titanic due the amount of rust that it had, also a massive oil leak on the front (more on that later…).

As I removed the Oil pan I noticed that it had already been removed because was full off gasket seal. As I removed it the oil seemed like…crude. Well, this is not going well I tough. I removed the Cam cover and noticed that the cover gasket was installed incorrectly (How can someone mess that up?) so it was losing oil, lot´s off oil to the front of the engine. Timing belt, water pump all cover in oil. But, despite that the condition off the head seemed ok to me:



Today I removed the Crank pulley, removed the oil pan baffle (?) where the oil pick up tube is attached and to my surprise I find metal filings…lot´s off metal filings.

So, right now I am at my dinner table eating and in the next hour or so will remove the rod bearings the check them out .

So, this is it…

Hello guys,

So the bearings look like this.





I see some scratches, but if i pass my nail i can´t feel them. Are these the stock bearings?

What do you think? Re-use or install new bearings?

I'd clean the head and swap on the 94 block. Then use the bp4w as you forged build base

Most likely standard although you should check that for sure. I wouldnt re use them if it was this far apart might as well do it properly

Well the engine is in the car for a long time but simply had been with lot of work and the time for the Miata has been almost none.

Since it was in the garage I could not help myself buying some stuff for it .
Proper Wheels, new tires, new steering wheel, lowered the driver seat by 1/2 inch and some other small stuff

Pictures?

Steering Wheel






And Wheels !
