Why are you going from a fast car to a slow car?

To have a car that i can stretch out in for longer drives, something with cruise control for longer drives.

I have changed mindsets and i will drive my civic until spring and then get a new car.... genesis or something.

It was.

I am making life changes right now and a second car that soaks all of your money and never runs is not something i need.

Thanks for the comments though.

Buy things from my partout! Support me and my new life.

Lots of stuff has sold from this build. It is sad some days to see it go, but I am loving the stress free living of not worrying about working on this and the obvious financial hit it has on the bank every month.


For those interested, I have made a jig for 1.8 miata turbo manifolds and can make anything your heart desires. For all other parts.... check out my partout thread V2.0!!!

I know that feeling. It drains the fun out of it all.

Yep. I will be getting a nice daily in the spring likely and just drive that. (RX8)

Nice cars are cool, but not a priority.

I absolutely LOVE the KA24de. I have a two door Frontier w/ 5spd and even that is a blast to drive around for being a 3300+lb truck.

I actually like that motor, I helped a friend rebuild one a few weeks ago. It was funny cause the motor was completely apart before the ****** was even cold. It was that simple to get apart...

They are super easy. They also are very cheap. I used to have a KA-t s13. blew the engine once and i easily found a new engine the next day for $100.
Pics:



They are quite torquey and dead reliable. The torque should motivate the miata to fun lapping with the 4.3 rear end that is going back into the car (oem 1.6 diff).

Just to inform, the project i am trying to do for $0 out of pocket. So value might be higher due to me having quite a few assorted parts from building cars over time. This will show some of my fab skills, but its not going to be baller by any means since there is simply no budget for it. The goal is to have a reliable lapping car for fun runs with friends.
