Maybe I'm missing something: why did you use butt connectors to install the dw? Isn't it completely pnp?

Revision coming soon (didn't get a chance to send one last night)

Not according to trackspeed and the kit i received. I did talk to Ballengher motorsports as well, they were able to track down the type of connector on the inside of the tank cover, so i could and will eventually order two of those weatherpack still crimp connections to remove the butt connectors and shrinkwrap, and just go into the stock connector. That is unless you all know of a different wiring harness?

I look forward to the Flex tuning Vlad, you ready for it?

Deatschwerks Fuel Pumps (DW100/200/300)
Application notes:
  • All pumps:
    • 1990-1993 users will need to modify their fuel pump hangar to install the fuel pump.
    • 1994-1997 is 100% plug and play
    • 1999-2005 users will need to wire in the included wiring pigtail

I was born ready lol

When I installed my dw200 onto the msm, it was 100% plug and play and required no cutting/splicing/anything.

I understand upgrading the wiring when stepping up to big boy fuel pressures/power levels or if original wires are questionable, but otherwise not sure why the above is mandated.

Do you remember where you bought it from? Id love a PNP pigtail. Then i can sleep at night...

But yeah, i bought mine with a NB2 install kit, which was a open ended pigtail that connected to the pump.

Build is back on, Engine is out and turbo build has officially begun!

Car has been running on a VLAD flex tune for the last few months nicely. Been working on some AC idle up gremlins and IAT heat soak, which should be resolved with IAT located in intercooler.

Plans with engine is out as follows:
SNS mazda parts depowered rack installed, power steering bits removed.
Oil Sandwich plate install for pressure/temp gauge
Mishimoto fan shroud and fans
Skunk2 intake Manifold
some lightweight alternator and water pump pulleys ive had sitting around that match valve cover
Stage 2 FM clutch and flywheel, rear main seal, throwout bearing
Vapor Canister and stock manifold pressure business removed.
Absurdflow manifold, T25g Garret, godspeed intercooler, and FM bits turbo build

Convert to return style fuel setup with Radium rail?????????

Sorry everyone, this build got real serious real fast!

Google Photos Dump is updated! https://photos.app.goo.gl/yYoGWhUbjGUsqeUC7

Turbo is installed and still dialing in tune with Vladitune, working on EBC at the moment. The car will hit about 10 psi up top on wastegate, and around 6-7 in middle rpm ranges as is. Trying to diagnose some turbo seal blow by on this T25. I am going to pull the turbo shortly and install a dynamic 360degree full seal kit and see if that solves my issue. Currently running a .065 restrictor on it.

LRB Speed full undertray on the way, and some more bling with a CF garagestar wiper cowl cover.

The car made it recently to the DMV Miata expo, and h2.o.i 2018 in OCMD.

Present day vs bringing home my 3600$ 2001 ls with 82k in the spring of 2015.

Picked up a "Carbon" 3 piece big ****. Fitment isnt the greatest. Working with the seller on a fix/replace.

IMHO in person think it looks good with the hardtop on the car and the stock small tupperware sides, and large rear flaps. However with the top off, the car starts to look a bit unbalanced.

Also got around to installing my Advanced Autosports NACA duct.

Install was a pain as most know. Have to remove the door glass, and the way Advanced has the duct mounted so low, it interferes with the outside seal, and inside trim piece.

Works like a dream though! You can drive top up, windows up in 80 degree heat and be super cool. Found that a spray paint cap works great to close when not needed.

I think a 3D printed louver cap would be nice to have.

Sub'd. This is basically my build plans short of the manifold and exhaust. How's the spool on the T25G? I have a recently rebuilt one as well! the FM hose is my hopeful way of keeping AC.

Here's the latest log he sent me, I've only tuned him on wastegate so far, but as you can see, it's really promising



it goes into boost faster than he can press the go pedal, and hits peak boost by 2800

NICE! Are you thinking of adjusting the timing to save the rods and keep the torque low in the lower rpms?

OP: Let us know how it goes and what your thoughts are. I'm still getting my parts at the moment but I'm looking forward to see your thoughts and some numbers!

Hey all... Car has been down for winter here in Northern VA. Plans for winter are to rebuild the T25g to hopefully solve a decel smoking issue. I have a rebuild kit sitting waiting for me to get the motivation for pulling the turbo. Will be setting up electronic boost control in the spring with Vlad.

I have a few other parts sitting to install over the winter, mostly appearance related- LRB speed full Aluminum undertray and a Garage Star CF Windshield cowl cover. Been working on driving comfort/positioning and installed my Momo mod 69 with Works bell short hub and QD v2.8 by NRG. Will be pairing this with a 6pt harness with some mods to the Lotus Elise, seat adding grommets by InoKinetic. Havent decided on the harness yet, but want something in the pull up style lap belts and cam style lock. Black/green Takatas?>

This summer hopefully is just enjoying the car and turbo setup. Will be looking into pad/rotor upgrades for my sport brake setup.
