Aw ****.

You've been on my list to contact. What do you want us to do about your throttle body? It's still on the vvt.

Something Laz related? It's all yours now, do whatever you like with it.

This is what I had in mind for your exhaust:

VVT motor is potentially being sold to a local track rat with a '90 short nose. We just wanted to sell it with a fuel rail, injectors, and throttle body to make it a complete kit.

They'll be two awesome machines ready for the track. And then mine, sitting in the corner collecting dust.

So this is happening. You can see the damage that laz sustained before we got him. Motor comes out soon, more goodies to come.

Looks like the slave is not disconnected. Damn! Would of been a perfect time for the straight shot clutch line you've wanted.

Motor is definitely listed, you can see it in the second photo. That's with both motor mounts loose?

Both mounts are loose yes. Here's some more
Evo 8 intercooler mocked up as well as some ic piping. The BOV will go on the short slightly curved pipe that will go between the cold side of the IC and the throttle body. The 1.6 is ready to come out, just waiting on curly to bring over the engine hoist and the msm motor.


Also installed the MSM brake booster line and throttle cable.


And yes, the bay will get a thorough cleaning when the motor is out.
And the slave is out josh.

Some rx8 440cc injectors thanks to rock auto and a 94-97 fpr from Static 9 Garage, kudos to them for an excellent price and fast shipping. This combined with a 99-00 fuel rail should work nicely for Lazs new fuel system.

As mentioned before, motor has an 01+ gasket! thus reroute will not happen yet.
Some updates on the motor, we resealed the bottom and did a new rear main seal. Also adapted a 1.6 alternator to work properly with the 1.8 belts. This involved using a Garagestar 1.8 pulley, shaving the cage of the 1.6 alternator for clearance and removing the spacer that sits below the OEM 1.6 pulley. Lines up perfectly now and removed the hassle of control the NB alternator.

I also stopped by English Racing today and dug throuh their used parts shed and left with enough OEM and aftermarket evo intercooler piping to build Laz's IC piping.

I'll let Martin post some pictures, but all went well with the swap today. We managed to pull the 1.6, scrub the MSM subframe and swap it in, drop in the MSM motor, fab intercooler pipes, plumb the fuel rail, rewire and relocate the wideband, extend the CAS wiring, and wire up the '01+ COPs. Started on the first try even!

Our one issue: no tach.

I tried the 1k resistor between IG- and B+, still no luck, these are the instructions I followed:

Quote:
Remove Mazda igniter & plug. We’ll be re-appropriating its wires & discarding the igniter in the steps below.
Clip the Mazda brown/yellow wire & the Mazda white wire. Crimp them together.
Clip the Mazda brown wire and the Mazda red wire. Crimp them together.
Clip the Mazda black/white wire & the Mazda yellow/blue wire. Crimp them together.
Clip the Mazda black wire & run it to the black wires at the 01-05 coil pigtails. This is ground.
Secure the leftover Mazda blue wire to prevent a short- it is 12V.
Now cut the 3-wire plug from the coil harness. Take the blue wire & run it to the black/white wires at the 01-05
coil pigtails. This is 12v.
The white wire runs the coil for cylinders 1&4. Connect it to the brown/white wire at the 1&4 01-05 coil.
The red wire runs cylinders 2&3. Connect it to the black/yellow wire at the 2&3 01-05 coil.
Any ideas?

I think you just did it all too quickly. You need to take longer and have more setbacks.

MSM subframe getting scrubbed up. Not sure what's happening here.


Old stuff out.


Burping the p/s rack.




Like a glove!





Check the VIN bro. Make sure it's a legit Type R.















We have minor adjustments to make tomorrow but car runs strong at wastegate pressure.
Complete engine bay pics are coming.

As if yesterday wasn't enough, Martin came over today to clean up the intercooler piping, fix a few boost leaks, and install his headlights. These are the projectors out of the broken MSM lights I parted out, shoved into some fog light lenses. They work surprisingly well!



Launch control might be set a little too high. It's at 3500rpm for this video.



And Martin leaves for today, Laz sounds A-mazing.
