Unfortunately got a set of low ohm rx7 injectors 195500 1350 , no worries, installed new clips, and resistor box. Also managed to get hands on VTPS ( think it's mazda 323 one from 1.8 engine) and today it finally started on first try
Still lot to do before can go for initial roadtuning, but it's a progress.
On a downside LC-1 started to act strange, could be that sensor is dead or needs calibartion.
Also managed to get hands on 01 torsen type rear end and it arrived today.


Oh and almost forgot, got new exchaust as well (2,5" from DP, stainless steel, 2 resonators and end pot or how you call it).

Tought i update my thread with some pictures of more stuff car has collected this year:
1.New 2,5" exhaust from dp (silencers etc from simons)

2.Old vs new clutch and flyfheel(flywheel from 1.8L lightened and Flyin Miata Stage 1 clutch)

3.Old vs new brakes (1.8 ones)

4. New rear diff from 2001.a MX-5 (4.1 and torsen(yes measured))

During alarm installation found "nice" electrical tuning under the steering


Did some road tuning on airfield and currently running ~16PSI of boost
MBC set to ~9 so creep is huge had to bring down rev limiter as well so i wouldn't hit boost cut set to 18PSI every time. Really need new dp :P
Unfortunately after exchaust change turbo started to smoke (11k driven) (this was still on low boost) and been getting worse ever since.
Planning to pull turbo out next week as well the head as leakdown test showed 0 on 4'th (compression number all same) and could hear air escaping.

Thanks for the update. Are you going to rebuild the turbo or replace it?

Not sure yet what to do with current turbo yet, but until end of season (before winter) turbo gets replaced with used Garrett GT2860RS 0.64 A/R which i can borrow
Winter is long enough to think about options (need new dp anyway).

China charger is off (nice and oily) and way in found GT2860RS with 0.64 A/R
Will keep it as responce is super and i like how ball bearing turbo starts to live.
Also modified intake piping so now it's all the way 2.5".
Oil and coolant lines for turbo also changed as well new AEM 3" filter and new stainless steel coolant pipe (one from BEGI kit had scratched lot of paint off from firewall). Now all the piping is stainless steel instead of mix of aluminium and stainless.
Under the hood looks much cleaner now (BOV and IAT sensor changed locations as well).
Only things left from original Shanghai kit are manifold, dp and bits of coolant reroute. Unfortunately dp has to go as well, boost creep is too much and can't even run the MBC for now (unless i bring rev limiter down to 6k which is no fun). With internal WG it holds 07-0,8Bar and creeps to almost 1,2).
Despite that car is very fun to drive
Changing injectors response to 0,4ms made engine much more live and responsive, but one issue is hunting me still since MS install: gear changes near top causes AFR go lean for a moment and creates kind a hold/hole in acceleration (i'll try to post log file later).

As car will be garaged for winter made a little
to wach it on cold and dark winternights :P
