Default chokeasphyxia's new engina

Previous upgrades/intro to car thread in 2008:
https://www.miataturbo.net/general-miata-chat-9/upgrades-6ul-brakes-pads-rails-r-p-25242/

Been pretty much just driving/busting-up car since then, limping it along the last 6 months or so as I gathered parts for new engine.

Crappy dirty engine


Lost tha head


Rest of drive train out


My buddy 'load testing' old drive train


Empty bay/busted headlight


6+ months of ignored oil leaks is shitty


General atmosphere shot


Redoing valve cover and intake manifold




New bottom end coming together at Advanced Race Technology here in SRQ




84mm Supertech's


Fitting more pieces


Coolant reroute spacer by Reverend Greg


Spacer installed


Resurfaced flywheel


Clutch on


Old **** lines/new awesomes from ARTech


Reason car wouldn't build over 6psi


Sitting pretty


Wire wheeled TB


Skip a bunch of bitching/bleeding and have this

Some people have talked about this stuff flaking off after a while, if that happens I'll have them powder coated.
