Final exhaust runner polish. Not perfect, but really, for all intents and purposes, it'll do.





And I got my SuperMiata Harmonic Dampener! One step closer the my final,final assembly of the short block! Just waiting on the ARP flywheel bolts

Removed all of the old valve seats and will be replacing them with over-sized Sealed Power seats. Have my Supertech oversized valve set (iconel exhaust) ready and waiting!

Its a damn tight squeeze for the intake side, almost unconformable with the meat between the seats ( )

New seats are in. Definitely seeing the potential benefits of these oversized valves/seats

This is looking great! From what we've seen the upper parts of the intake runners are the most important. Looks like you're getting it done sir.

Ya aluminum, being the soft metal it is, would get pounded to **** by valves. Gotta put in seats of a harder metal to withstand the abuse!

Thanks man! Did plenty of research before having a go with the carbide bit. Should be interesting to see any gains from the larger valves and port work!

Back from the grave, no engine updates quite yet but this was pretty cool.

I don't get it. Looks overexposed, slightly blurry, the only really interesting looking car is the furthest away, there's what looks like a stock four door civic sedan, then there's a miata with useless fender flares, small exhaust, poorly fitted trunk and a cheap looking antenna?

Edit: Can't tell if the trunk is actually poorly fitted or if that's the picture. Lots of glare and reflection.

I agree.

It's soft, has tons of compression noise, the highlights are blown and showing lots of fringing, and the composition is poor.

my eyes focus in on the miata's license plate which should not be the dominate thing in the image.

There is some interest in the garage itself, but there are three shitty cars in the way and the photgrapher is too far away.

lawl you guys..... white 4 door is a built turbo car good for 450 hp on last setup and should see 600+ with the ethanol, injectors, tune and larger turbo thats now in it. Hatch is a built single cam with IRTB and some big things in the works. and mine is the next in line.

Trunk isn't perfect but glare doesnt help. I like how people call my flares useless when putting 15x10 6UL's without flares wouldn't quite workout so well.

They may not be miatas but theyre beautiful cars FWD or not.
