False. JO Motorsports offers cryotreatment, gear/synchro/fork hardening, low friction coatings on synchros, all for SUPER cheap. I have no idea how that man makes any money. I purposely spent as much as I could, and new trans only cost me 1400 dollars. (plus frieght shipping one way. DO NOT use ups freight.)

If you will be at Miatas at MRLS, you can feel my sexy shifter.

i wanna feel your shifter 😏 But for real thanks for the advice! I'm not gonna go ***** out right off the bat when the motor is finally built and in, so i feel like I'll just see what it's comfortable handling for a while first. Are you saying the trans PLUS the treatments cost you 1400?

Yes. 2001 6 speed with Roush hardened shift forks, cryo-treated gears, low friction coating on synchros, full rebuild was 1400. I had to get my synchros replaced, so that was an extra 200, IIRC. So for my build it was 1600 plus frieght.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look into it once I have the car running.

Well it seems I didn't know what i was looking at when i pulled the shocks out of the junkyard car, I put them in mine and I've noticed a "thready" grinding noise in the back and creeped to autozone to get some deep sockets. Threads on both shocks are both stripped. I'm going to put the old rear shocks back on tomorrow and see if I can either repair these or set them aside and get new ones.

Some goodies came yesterday. Changing to 10.5:1 Wisecos, 83.5mm. Is $240 for block surface and bore a good price? Also arriving was the FM 1.8 Conversion Kit.

Why did you keep those 10.5's? The low end you seek of, is about a couple hp. The lack of timing you will have to run will be in the -20's of hp.

(Woke up this morning thinking this) Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you.
(Worked on suspension and got agitated yesterday, but thought this today) By now you should've somehow realized what you gotta do.
(Felt alone as if "I bet I'm the only one to ever make this mistake") I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do, about you now.

I have to follow this, if only I started like you...
I spent a TON of money going from 175, to 200, 250, 330, and 408 hp, every time changing turbo, manifold etc.
It's a great start, go for it, and do it once!

Hey thanks! I don't want to finish the build and be like alright can't wait to get more. At least for a while. I'm trying to do it right, and being a new comer. I will kind of be missing the experience of driving different miatas (175, 200, 250 hp) so i really have no frame of reference. It's going to be a completely new car once it's done. Haven't made too much of a fool of myself so far!
