Smile Jonathan's (buffon01) "Build"

Is time I started to put all this **** together. I’m going to have to do it by parts since this is my DD and I’m in a tight work and school schedule.

The car is a red 1991, stock engine, stock drive-train. The build specs are:

Garrett 2860
Flying Miata manifold and DP
Godspeed Inctercooler
Ebay universal piping
Ebay BOV
Braineack built MS
460cc Rx7 Injectors
F1 Six puck clutch
PLX 300M O2 WB.

This weekend I plan to finally and correctly install the MS. I have never set timing in a car before and if you’ll like to share some tips I’ll be glad to hear them. Actually any type of advise will be very welcomed.

I’ll try to install the turbo next weekend. However that depends on the amount of school work I get during the week. I plan to use the Begi tutorial/manual and guide. Like I said before any recommendations are welcomed.

If you can't afford water/meth injection (understandable) then I'd suggest you keep a fairly low psi/hp tune, and go easy on the car. You'll break your rear end in no time. I purchased a 1.8 open diff, axles, and driveshaft for $160 total, which is a pretty good deal. Also, seach around here about that F1 clutch. It'll hold the power, but the bearings are considered junk, replace asap with oem units (pilot and throwout[release]).

$160 for a differential swap O_O damn that is a good ******* deal!! I've heard about the bearing being **** so I'll get oem ones once the clutch goes in.

Psi/tune, I hope to be able to safely get 200whp till I can get my hands on water/meth inj.

that is a universal coolant straight/bendable hose connected to a 1.8 housing that replaced the mixing manifold.

everything is hooked up/plugged in?
no connections are broken on the harness?

Hmm I didnt. My laptop read the MS after a few tries.

Yeah getting the fuel out is a bitch. I got most of it, I think. However my case is not even close to yours.

So what now?? I pulled the spark plugs and got most of the fuel out. I currently all the cavities where the spark plugs go open as well as intake inlet and the IAC.
