Default my completed turbo pictures. version, uh, 2. 56k death.

new thread because this isn't a build anymore... ****'s done.

it got me to work and back today (25 mi each way). only issue? the front brakeline came loose at the master cylinder. "ummm why does my brake pedal slowly go all the way to the floor? why is it doing it again? why is my brake warning light on?" easy fix, burnt finger, a 10mm wrench, and blue brake fluid later I'm rockin and rollin.

So naturally since I had brake fluid EVERYWHERE, I had to clean up under my brake booster. and since I had to clean there, I cleaned my engine bay. And since I had to clean that, I figured I'd detail my engine bay. I picked up a sweet technique somewhere using Meguiars Super Degreaser and Hyper Dressing. Spray on, rinse off. Spray on, leave on.

Then I figured I'll just wash the damn car. So I took pictures of the whole shmeal. 56k can lick my nut.

STICKER LOVE. Black on Black.


Painted my bumper / radiator shroud thing black. For no reason.



Filter-Compressor-Turbine (jacketed)-wastegate. The top nut you see under the brake reservoir is the bitch.


System 3/4 view.



System front view.


How my 9 day bumper spray paint job came out...


Sixual.


Can't wait to dyno this bitch.

yeah, but if you're that close you could run over for the free good at lunch and share your excuse with everybody? I would.

I'll see, it depends on how many more papers I have to write and how much 3D animating is kicking my ***. Hopefully it won't be too bad and then I can stop in and cry about how I still don't have a suitable turbo. I'd hate to do it, but I might just buy strait from AVO...they probably want some rediculous amount of money though.

I don't know if you guys have looked recently but they have a clearance on their old kits, it includes the piggy back with fuel and ignition control inculding 5th injector and O2 tuning and even launch control. It's really cheap as well at 620 dollars for full retail (for the piggyback anyway)

If he's close to DC, he aint too close to the 2 hrs from here dyno day. of course 3D animation can be done on a laptop... and we'll all have OUR laptops...

With Maya?! Sweet....jk

I've already commited to making it up there for a bit this weekend, me and my GF will rock with you guys and go karting. Funny because then the weekend after I will be going to a RX meet at Severna Park (where I live.) which includes 7's and oldschools like 3's. Then in the same day go to a MR2 Dyno day with my G/F (Who has a 2) in Gaithersburg. Y8s you could probably meet up with us at the MR2 meet and stuff, there will be a "cruise" afterwards I'm sure we'll be the only 2 Miata's there.
