Default Nick's NA Turbo Build

Hey guys im new to this forum, so would like to start off by saying hi to everyone.

I own a 1990 NA6 MX5 daily driver. Owned it since June 2011, I bought pretty stock, Lovelle spings, Rota Wheels and a cold air intake.

I decided to start modifying it at the start of 2012. So far the following mods that have been done are.

this will be a very long post from when i first got the car to how it currently sits.

When i first bought the car



Then i put Rota Grid V 15x8 +0, Yellowspeed dynamic pro coilovers and a Brown Davis roll bar






















Mod List up to that current point:

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes:
Rota Grid V's Bronze 15x8 -0 (pasti-dipped in fluro orange)

DBA Slotted and cross drilled front brake rotors
Bendix Ultimate at the front and Bendix OEM replacement at the rear
Rays lug nuts

Dura valve stems


Suspension:
Yellowspeed racing coilovers (height and dampener adjustable)
Whiteline front strut brace
MX5 Mania front and rear underbody bracing
Brown Davis NB rollbar (plasti-dipped in fluro orange)


Engine & Driveline:
RPM HD clutch kit
K&N apollo custom intake into firewall
Toda 256 8.5mm exhaust and intake camshafts
Custom straight pipe cat back exhaust with resinator (stock muffler which is directly bolt on)
OEM replaced fan belt
OEM replaced upper and lower shifter bushings


Interior & Exterior
Garage Vary front lip
Mazdaspeed front and rear tow hook
Numberplate offset bracket
No carpet
MX5 floor mats
OMP steering wheel
Fire extinguisher
I.L Motorsports NA6 racing pedals with foot rest
Broadway 27mm covex mirror
Titanum style gearknob

Electricals:
Optima red top 800cc
Kenwood headunit
Apline type r splits
Apline type r sub
Kenwood Amp






Then i decided to take the car off the road, i got bored of the setup as it was, i also bought bride seats, sold off the coilovers, wheels and roll bar. Started buying parts

The LoveFab setup makes it back to the forum yet again. Turbo parts good. No comment on the rest of the car.

Great looking turbo setup. The car looked better on the wheels it came with. Those ones poke out like a mexican's truck.

very cool... now... lol
the stance thing is its own world.. and sometimes done tastefully i spose, but it destroys the performance of the car. seems like you are on the right track now to making a very well built beast. should perform 100% better now. and those 949's are a good choice of wheel.

how is that Halltec spring??? and how does it compare performance/pricewise to an MS setup???

Thanks man, Haltech compaired to MS, hmmm, its hard to say really, not a lot of people in Australia know how to tune them so they become an issue, but i would say if you are on a tight budget get MS, if you want something with a few more features that you will actually use and make the most of then it is worth it.

thats cool... yeah, i noticed that there are very few people in Australia that use MS. How is the haltech in tems of tunability? can you adjust things on the fly? or does it just have a few set maps to go by, with the ability to compensate?

I always laugh when people say there is nobody around them that knows how to tune a MS. The damn thing tunes itself, and of course the timing map that actually needs to be tuned by hand is just like any other EMS for the most part.

Then of course all the other basic settings, which are really nothing special.

Nothing wrong with a haltech though. Do you have spacers on those 6ul's, or are they just 15x9 or 15x10's? Those are the most hellaflush 6ul's i've ever seen, rofl.
