I find it an absolute travesty that you don't do this for a living. Your fabrication is ridiculous. The car and engine bay look amazing.

It is a hangar for the IC or exhaust, clever will have to keep that in mind for the next installation.
I make my hangars that are welded to the exhaust from 3/8" stainless tubing and use conpression fitting cones to keep the ruber hangars from slipping out. https://picasaweb.google.com/m/viewe...16082606463794

Time to get this back on the first page!

I have some updates, but not many...


Here is the answer to the mystery part - its part of an "exhaust side movement restrictor system" that I came up with. Should keep the exhaust off the bumper!!



Built an SS exhaust brace:








Been working on the coolant reroute, had to make a few brackets to keep the hose away from the throttle linkage etc. The GM hose was definitely not a direct fit!











Welded up a fitting for the BOV:




...and a splice for the lower radiator hose



Another titanium heat shield for the brake MS:





And finally some heater hose splices which I made on the lathe:

Well, in a way I do, because I am a mechanical engineer working in new product development. Unfortunately I don't think doing this type of work on cars would be a lucrative endeavor.

But I appreciate the complement!

Well its on the road now. The only problem is that it overboosts to 20+ psi in 3rd and 4th gear, even with no spring in the wastegate :/

Oh yeah and it makes 14 psi at 3150 rpm, on a totally stock 1.8 and a GT2860RS, which I believe is pretty good...

BUT, because of the boost creep issues, I am going to try a .86 housing. If that works but kills my spool too much, I guess I will go to a 44mm gate and a shorter dump tube route.

Wow, torque under the curve must be phenomenal on this setup.

Start planning a built motor, those rods are on borrowed time.

I feel like the cheap Rota's kill the awesomeness of this car.

I feel like everyone with a Miata has 6ULs (not knocking them at all, they are sweet wheels, just saying) and these are about the only other 15x9 +36, and they are only 2 lbs heavier than the 6ULs (14.75). And I got the set of 4 for 500 shipped - about $300 cheaper than 6ULs.
