You're making a mistake thinking you are going to score poon hanging out with Josh. You'll probably end up pissing on a riced out S2000 while someone records it...

There eventually came a point in my life where I stopped pissing on cars I objected to. However, you never know what good times will lead.

The clock turns backwards down here. You'll be 16 again in no time.

New HY came in today. I am pleased with my latest e-snipe.


Came with free MAd tYtE JDM sport coupler


Super clean



I'll hit the comp. housing with a wheel and make it sparkle.


I'm happy with it so far. I'll cap off the source nipple on the comp. housing. Now I have some back up parts since the 5 bolts are becoming harder to find. There is one tiny, tiny crack right at the flapper hole that is perfectly normal and shouldn't leak. The rest of the volute and turbine is 100% flawless and it's been drilled for 10mm studs at all holes (normally two are 8mm and two are 10mm)

EBC is also here.


More pics coming.

You're supposed to dispose of dead bodies covered in tarp, not show them off.

Not a tractor but, another miata. Well, close enough. I was lucky to pick up this motor, engine stand, PnP COP's from Sav and 4 spare COP's for an easy penny.

Don't sweat it Josh. My build thread is older than yours, and I think you are much further along.

Haha, thanks man. This thread is funny because it's sort of a compilation of my first two turbos and then the new setup. I just happen to do a horrible job at documenting anything. I was actually just in your neighborhood recently. If I had access to a computer I was going to try and swing by so I could pick your brain.

Man, ain't that the ******* truth. Between losing an entire Korean person in body fat and work...my car gets no love. But now I have more time and 6 weeks of no work coming soon. Once I get started and building steam I should be pile driving this piece back into shape.

It's already built. This is Levnubhin's motor from his 300whp NA. He sold it to Tyson87 and now it's been sold to me. Definitely worth the time on the road to go get it.

Pretty standard stuff. Eagle H's, low-comp Wiseco's, ARP everything, fresh head.

If you were in his neighborhood then you were in mine, too.

I've got a line on some Massey Ferguson parts if you need something.

I've noticed that build threads with the cars that are never complete get the most attention here.

I think what he meant are cars that continuously run while they are being built.

When I start getting weekends off I'll plan a trip up there to come hang out with you guys and couch surf.

My car was complete on the first/second pages. My problem was that I got bored. I went from a sr20 t25 to a gt2544r to a begi 2870 and then started again with all new hardware once I realized I would never be happy with the old FM3 kit. Once I get to 50 pages then I'll start worrying

I care about your car.


Manifolds on and fit. The turbo manifold is a HUGE pain to mount do the low sunk collector and general "tightness" of it's construction but, it shouldn't be as bad as the FM log that I used for years. Luckily I still have the modded tools that I made just for taking the old manifold on and off.

One thing I need to stress is that is so, so, so ******* nice to be able to work on an engine outside of the car and on a stand. Oh my dear lord it is like being in heaven

I did notice how close the turbine is to the wastegate housing. I'm not sure if it's "too" close or if it will be fine. I'm not opposed to running water to it or making a shield. I'll have to google it and see what I can find on the subject. I'll never be tracking this thing aggressively besides some mild autocross and highway pulls; maybe I'm being overly cautious.

This pan already has a drain bung, but I'm not sure if it's too high to safely clear my a/c bracket with out rubbing. I'll swap pans if it's too close for comfort. Oil lines will swap over as will my reroute parts. The new motor already has a temp sensor in the back, so that's good. This should all be a fairly straight forward process.

Cellphone pic. It's all I have until I get something else.
