Looking good. Did all my hardware go on easily and fit decently?

Yes! Your stuff went on very well. We had to grind down a wrench to tighten the bottom manifold nuts, but other than that it was easy. Hardest part has been the hot side routing.

Buttoned up a lot more stuff today. Pretty much done aside from getting the pipes made.


Also....

So apparently once you cut one hole you want to keep making more.





Finally installed these Zoom side markers I've had for quite a long time.




Also... small homage to the car that started it all.

Got some updates from my fab guy on the hot side pipe yesterday.







I expressed some concern about wheel clearance, and got this picture today. He knew he could do better, and now I've got miles of room.

So, you could say that you rev this car to the moon.

My manifold actually looks halfway decent after the coating.

Lol sure does.


I can finally say I have a turbo Miata.




Took a celebratory photo after taking a short drive.



Also installed fender braces from Garage Star



I also finished my Zoom winker wiring like a pro. Individual heat shrink over each connector, braided loom over it all, terminated with a larger heat shrink.




The car has been down for about two months, and we've done a lot.

Install Torsen
Install full exhaust
Install Garage Star fender braces
Install MkTurbo kit
Install oil lines
Drill pan for drain
Swap valve covers
Add Joyfast bolts
Install boost gauge
Extend IAT wire
Install Zoom side winners
Had pipes welded and turbo ported by Wrench Masters LLC
Had hot side ceramic coated by Engine Armor Coatings
Installed Garage Star tow hook
Installed rear mud flaps
And I'm sure I'm missing stuff.

It's been a bit, but I've done some stuff to prepare for MiataPalooza, last minute, of course.

So I've been boosted on borrowed time.


The factory radiator has been turning colors, and was a ticking time bomb. As some may remember, I picked up a CSF radiator and the FM shroud kit. They'd been sitting in my closet for at least 6 months. With MP coming up, it was time.









Week before MP, taking the car apart, no biggie.



CSF with FM kit mounted. Looks so good.



Slight difference here.



These were the lovely hoses I had apparently been using.


These will do a little better.




Oooooohhhhhh........Ahhhhhhhhhhhh........







And of course we had to test the fans.......

I have to give it to both CSF and Flyin' Miata. FM's kit was complete, and had great instructions. The CSF is just beautiful. The pairing is something I think would be hard to top.


Also. Turbos make jobs much harder. I had to take the turbo off the manifold to get one of the hoses off. It was such a pain. But so worth it.

Also. It's been a long time, and I didn't realize I hadn't posted my dyno vid. I had the car tuned by Linfert performance, and got roughly 230/230 with weather correction.
