Talking Roadster Build

Hi,

My Name's Tony, i come from Quebec and im a member of Mx-3 Quebec ( A Club dedicated to Mazda's )

After reading alot on the website and looking for alot of info's i decided to mod my Eunos Roadster

My paint is sucky but ill repaint it after my Turbo Project. Here some pics of it.
Its a 1990 NA

Anyways, its pretty clean and beside the paint... i think the car is perfect, No Rust at all for a 20 years old car its nice.

Anyways, lets talk about the B6-T project.

First of all, i dont want it to be a rocket or something like that. My goals are about 200whp, good Handling and normal suspension, i dont want a Drag Monster.

I've runned 16.3 Stock with it... i could do better but anyways...

I started up by buying a used T25 and few things with it... got em all in a bundle for really cheap so i could refuse... So thats what i have so far.

Also i apologize for my poor english, but i do my best

I have 2 new Questions,

OMG i can't clock my turbo, its like jammed as hell, do i try to break it or i could just make a rebuild in a shop for ~150$ ?

If i get A/C off my car, will it change something in the Ecu or i just have to take it off and its done?

Taking the A/C off the car won't affect anything.
Soak the turbo in penetrating oil and use a good amount of force to rotate the housings. They'll move, just take your time and don't break anything.

Eh Tony, content de voir que tu reviens dans le secteur un peu, je suis passé devant chez tes parents la semaine dernière, j'étais content de voir que tu avais toujours ton miata ;-)

Pour le VTPS que j'ai vue que tu cherchais dans la section WTB, je te suggère de chercher n'importe quel TPS de miata automatique sur le web ou dans les scrap, beaucoup moins chère qu'un de BMW ;-)

any 1.6 automatic tps will fit in

And this probably include all mx-3's b6!

If you need anything for a 1.6, I just swapped BP-Z3, so I have alot of B6 parts left over.

Best bet for a turbo application would be a BP-Z3 with MS3+MS3X for the goodness of the VVT, but with oem ECU, BP4W or BPZ3 are both a good call.

In either way, go for the first one you'll find!

I drove down to Quebec city and came back the same day with the engine in my truck; result: I found myself a wonderfull almost new BPZ3.

Long story short, the car was bought in fall 2002 and was declared total lost in march 2003. I ran a carfax with the VIN number on the oil pan.

I should expect to have mine working in 1 or 2 weeks.

Swapping a NB BP in a NA is not a straight swap. I had to adapt stuff and do fabs.

But I think it will end up well.

For the difference between the BP4W (1999-2000) the intake manifold suck, you would have to remove the VICS and the exhaust manifold is ugly and create alot of restriction, it's a big restrictive cast iron manifold.

Let me know what else is going on!

If my B6ZE isnt doing it...

I will still have a StandAlone MS, ill get FM 1.8 Swap Kit + COP + Coolant Reroute.
I can get any engine tested and carfaxed, shipped free at my location (LeCavalier to my job)

So, if the 1.6 doesnt do it... ill make everything to make the car run perfect and then ill finish the body work needed.

Then ill take care of the Turbo stuff...

Don't buy the FM kit, it's useless.

The mounts should comes with the engine, you can add 4 wires to the CAS, you can build a little bracket for the throttle cable or use mine, I have the throttle cable assembly that came from the 2002 and you want to use COPs, no need for the coil bracket!

For the reroute, go get the Escalade pipe, a spacer from BEGI and keep the neck from your B6.

Easy as it is, if you want COPs, I have a set that you can use, I'm not gonna use them, the don't fit the VVT valve cover, the holes for the spark plug wires are smaller than the other valve covers from 1990 to 2005 (non-VVT)

No, the right angle and a big enough diameter to use the Escalade radiator pipe
