As far as all the parts that "DUDE I ALREADY ORDERED THEM CANT YOU SEE THAT"

leave them in your basement or try to sell them on club roadster.

Spending $200 on a fail part and re-selling it for $100 is better than spending $200 on a fail part and blowing up your motor with it.

Great, you were ignorant and you ordered parts, now you know, so get rid of them.

OK,so my boys at ATP insist that I do this right. I'm catching **** from some friends as far away as Japan, so I found something that should make everyone here happy. Also get some of you god complex women to even help. I'm going to build this car from EVERY cheap ebay part I can find. I WILL however get either a Megasquirt or a Haltech ECU. Fuel Injectors will either be APEX or from the RX7, suspension is yet to be decided, BUT it will be a quality and tested product. Those will not change...THEN after the car has been built and tuned, i will start swapping parts out (with exception of fuel injectors, suspension and ECU) with parts "suggested" by people on this forum and my other friends that have 7 and 8 second hondas. After each swap a run on the track and a dyno. close notes will be taken concerning times, horsepower and over all feel. Because i will be swapping parts so fast I will not be able to research quality of products UNLESS they break right away. I have already secured a second engine just in case the turbo blows through it. research aint cheap boys...now here is your chance to really learn something and not hearsay. Im about to mythbust almost every story I can find. I may even start a youtube channel The carnage starts this weekend

So I was wondering. Could I have like 1300 bucks? I want some Lotus seats, and 750cc injectors from a buddy.

I would be your friend forever....

Why you hating on someone else's car. Is an eight second car hard for you to understand? My point in that statement was to show their experience. They are professionals. They know there ****. Do YOU have an eight second car, what about nine, ten? My guess is maybe 12-14?? Stop hating you just sound like a lil bitch. I'm not mad before anyone thinks that. I'm just pointing out all the ***** I been smelling the last couple of days.

So far all you have shown us is that you are good at making poor choices, and love to talk. This is the internet, talk means nothing.

im gunnas do a RB26DETT swap in my miata and run 7s all day. My Nissan bros took me under their wing and showed me all the secret JDM techniques, like converting the RB26 to a FFS set up, not that you would know what that is.

That is what you sound like. You had a little bit going for your at the start of this thread, but now it is just a joke. No one takes you seriously, and this thread will end one of two ways. One: you get banned. Two: you realize how dumb you are and eventually just leave, or go over to the CR.net circle jerk.

You are much too cocky to save this thread from being anything other than a big joke. But please, keep talking. It is entertaining.

your right about the net being a place to talk ****, but if you read closely I have not done any of that, I have made no claims of superiority, I have only outlined my plans. My plans also have no claims of producing anything special, just data. Where do you see me saying i have big plans of super speed, where does it show me saying I will have a fast car? From the start I have only wanted to learn how to break down an engine and build a turbo. I have read enough to R and R and have even learned some bolt on tricks in the last few days from reading other post. i come back here now and again to see what members are helpful and what members just like to talk ****. I have nice cars, I have fun cars, fast cars, but THIS is one i get to build and play with. Thought it would be fun to **** around with it and see what happens..unlike most, im NOT on a budget, so I can do just about whatever I like, does that mean throwing in a ls1, not really. It means I get to build and test ACTUAL research and not just reading it online. I also get to share that with people whom I figured would be interested in seeing the difference between an all out Chinese ebay build vs a DIY (the right way) version. This is just Entertainment for me, the car means nothing. Im sorry if this bothers you. I have a question, and try to answer this inside yourself first...... why do you care so much? How does my build experience affect you in a negative manner? Why does my happiness make you angry? If I choose to build a gremlin with a spoiler, how does that hurt you? I really didn't want to go 5 pages of bullshit. If the thread dies... so be it, in fact I kinda hoped it would, because all I see here is hate and not something I would normally see on a forum where someone was just trying to learn. As far as getting banned? SO, why would that hurt me? it doesn't. in closing, it matters very little what you say about my build. Im still going to do it and have fun , if you want to help, im all ears. I even welcome it, we can break open a peace pipe drink a few beers, if you want to sit on the side lines and yell out it wont work, i guess thats fine to, but I would appreciate it more if you helped instead. Hell, at the very least, stick around, keep your eyes open for the explosions.

Dude, you're dumb. No one cares about anything you have to say, or any of the 5 second friends you claim to have until you start producing, not just talking.

Your "plan" has already been done, many times over, and we're already bored of it before you even started. No one will care. Cause we all already know, there is no science involved here.

But by all means, go ahead and do it anyway. Its your time, your money, etc. Take lots of pics of our amusement.

None of this is new, and easily done.

I built my 9 second Miata out of nothing but Ebay parts at the recommendation of all my fellow Navy Seals who all have 3.5 second mile Eclipses. I was just learning and having fun, but now if I wanted to me and my Army Ranger buddies could build a 4 second Miata out of a 1978 Renault Encore.

Side note, how have we made it this far without one of these?

I love how he talks about his friends "owning shops" and being "professionals". It is almost sad how he makes up an internet identity to try and sound like he has the hook up. In reality this is some ignorant kid who has no idea wtf he is doing trying to sound cool. He has no friends, although he might annoy some local shop by showing up and trying to act cool. Either way, recipe for failure. You can always tell with an attitude like that they will peace out.

Also, called it:

I love how he references "his boys at ATP", like none of us are from NorCal and actually know who he's talking about

Bro,
If you're gonna name drop, make sure its around a crowd that isn't within 100 miles of you.

Hondas and Miatas have engines with very similar characteristics. You know, pistons, rods, and stuff.

I'm actually glad the platforms are so dissimilar, even if it means we have really rough running engines. I'd hate to have all of those guys over here every day.

I'm in Sac, don't drink, and married so "clubbing" doesn't appeal to me at all.
You ever come out to Sacramento Raceway? PM me next time you do, I want to see your car. The boys at ATP run some quick cars, and I'm sure the company wouldn't want to be associated with some n00b that just machine-gun ordered a bunch of the most terrible EBAY crap for his miata, so just cause you talked to or maybe even know some guy that works there, the name drop is pretty pathetic if you ask me. Everyone knows someone that is cool.

I feel bad for you, cause you started off lighthearted and everyone thought it was a joke, now that we see you're actually serious, this is just sad, and it will just result in failure. But you won't listen, even though we're actually trying to help you. You'll just make terrible decisions to spite us, even though no one really cares

Good luck though. Just please do us a huge favor and keep taking pictures of all your progress.

<Takes off trolling ******* hat>

If you're serious about the build, do it. You need to understand that this forum is full of engineers, math fiends and professional racers, not Monster energy drink brahs. We want proof, not ideas. We want pictures, not speculation. We want pink sheets, not conjectured estimates.

One learns by reading, not by throwing ideas and tough guy comments out. The "hate" on many of the "ideas" that you have is not from ignorance, but from experience. Miata's have been around a long time. So has this forum. We know what works, what doesn't, and how to spot bullshit. What you think is new, has been done before and documented. There's a good reason that some parts are recommended, and others bashed and it's not just because it's amusing to watch the new guy get mad. No one here cares for internet tough guy talk. We only care about actual builds and tangible results.

There, that should make up for all the **** I've talked to noobs this month.

<puts trolling asshat back on>
