I remember seeing a twin organic clutch on the for sale section. I'm driving daily on one, it's actually pretty reasonable.

I was probably just going to get a new clutch disc for the FM2 as it should be up to the task and will be the most economical action. I'll take a look in the for sale section for it though.

sorry to ask this late, but where did you get that clamp and bolts for the turbo? I bought an aluminum super core and reused the old hardware from my original 6258.

The bolts I got from Southeast Power Systems which is local to me. They are a BW master dealer and very knowledgeable. They have no online presence that I am aware of however. You can call them at (813) 623-1551 and ask for Mike Franke. I am sure they can ship you some of the bolts if you're interested. He may also knowledge dump on you if you get him talking. He has surely forgot more about turbos and Motorsports than I could hope to know.

Not sure what clamp you are talking about exactly.

EDIT: I just looked at my own picture and realized you were talking about the housing clamp. That is not a picture of my turbo and I have no idea where that comes from. I am using the normal bolt tabs.

Yea now I wonder if there was a redesign with the aluminum cores and the pressure some small tabs/ears might be doing to the flange. I never thought twice about mixing and matching housings and cores/flanges. I did notice (only once) that my bolts rattled loose a tiny bit. Now I'm paranoid and want to check them when I get home tonight.

Yes they were inconel. They are something stupid like $11 a bolt. Good thing you only need 4.

I just used SS safety wire. I can't imagine needing anything more exotic than that.

I think most people would be fine to be honest. I have AWR 70D motor mounts and I was running on only 3 cylinders when the bolts loosened so I am sure the engine was vibrating far more than is typical for most people.

The stainless bolts I have are also drilled for safety wire.

Placed an order with flyin miata this afternoon fora rear main seal, new FM2 clutch disc, and all a new seals for the transmission while I am in there. I also picked up a 36-2 trigger wheel for an ATI Damper so I can get that installed while I'm at it.

I ended up buying a house during my leave of absence from the forum. I rent out the main home and live in the carriage home in the back for now because I don't need all that living space. However, the first floor of the carriage home is a roughly 800 sq-ft unfinished space which I will be making into a garage/workshop/man cave. I had to cut a hole for a garage door facing the alley because it did not have one before. The door had to be ordered and should arrive at the installer tomorrow. They will be installing it sometime next week. So excited.

Boarded up garage door opening. This side is just wide enough for the miata to drive in and open the doors to get out of the car without too much trouble.


Another shot from near the opening itself showing the space I will put a work bench and the storage closet for tools and such.


This is the other side that I plan to turn into an entertainment area. It currently has my ping pong table, beer fridge and fermenting chamber, and a couch. Needs to be cleaned up and rearranged but its a work in progress.


It looks smaller in the pictures than it is in real life. Especially the length of the building.

Ryan pulled out the engine and transmission on Saturday. This is the only shot I have of it.

I mean a tennis shoe is not really going to protect my foot in any meaningful way either. I have more pics to post and some updates. I am going to wait until after this weekend when the engine is hopefully back in the car.

I almost dropped something on his feet at one point. I think it was a tool of some sort.

In his defense, it was 82*F. But I always wear shoes when working on cars or cutting the grass. I don't need extra problems. The regular problems are plentiful enough.
