Productive saturday afternoon!
Got my head back from the shop this past week so today i put it all together. I said a few swears while using the stupid valve spring comressor lol. I put my stock cams in because i prolly wont receive my Kelford cams till next month and im ready to start the car up this week. Also had my buddy fab up this little block off plate for my intake manifold. Gonna grab a head gasket this week and start buttoning everything up!

I had Accurate Machine in middletown machine my head. A&M Machine on behind Carquest on East Main St machined my block. I didnt let either of them assemble anything, i dont trust anyone but myself. lol. I did not get in on the BEGI group buy, i still want to see dyno numbers with that thing. Im not convinced its worth it.

How come you used two different machine shops? Which one was better? I've seen that one off east main, I figured you had used them..

that is a factory coolant bypass area to heat the intake manifold for winter temps in cold climates... easier startup, and emissions.

hes just removing it

Good question! The lead guy at A&M's brother, races spec miatas. He has the bodyshop next to Teds. He's been doing miata blocks for him for years so i figured, he'd be my best bet.

Accurate in middletown is known for doing nasty head work for great prices fast fast turn around times.

Is there a reason with all this work you don't seem to be doing a coolant reroute? Or did I miss something.

Turbo isnt water cooled. Oil drain line, i/c pipe and coolant hose all fit perfect. I had to change the lower rad hose and get a little crafty, but otherwise, no need for a reroute.

I think he was refering to the reroute since coolant flow in our motors is not the best.....I think its cyl 4 that has a tendancy to run hot which can sometimes cause detonation. With the reroute, the coolant flow is redirected and helps keep cylinder temps down/even

So after carefully hand building my entire engine for the past 3 months, i went to start it and it wouldnt turn over. lol This was due partially to my working 11 hrs then coming home and putting in another 3 hrs until 9pm. I was so tired i infact that i bolted the cas 180 degrees in the wrong direction. I fixed this issue after looking at the engine for 2 min today lol. What a difference not being dead tired makes lol. Turned the stupid cas 180 degrees to its normal position and the car fired up like a never even took the motor out! Good oil pressure, no leaks, no bad smells. Im very please, turbo blanket, dp wrap and beefy wires are on the way.....
