Default My first turbo car '90 Miata finished today :)

My introduction post to the forum... I'm Ryan from Salem Oregon. Got my 90 Miata with 195,000 miles on the stock 1.6 as far as I know in October of last year. I ordered most of the parts back in December, ebay dp and manifold, mitsu t25 turbo, ebay charge pipes, 4lb wastegate actuator, ebay intercooler, etc. It's my daily at the moment. I kinda regret not going with megasquirt and taking the rrfpr and retarded timing route. Hopefully she lasts at least a few months. I have a crx that I could switch insurance to so no worries, this is my drift car. Got everything finished today finally and boost is a lot of fun. The sounds are great and she's a bit faster than stock.. plus the standstill burnouts are great I don't have any pics of the engine bay yet but here are some pictures of the car at Pat's Acres in Canby Oregon.

Camber?? Is that when you stretch a 195 tire on a 10" wide rim?

You guys are all *** holes, I'm going back to roadsterdrift lol. But really, I'll probably buy megasquirt in the next 6 weeks. Right now I'm not any worse than all the guys running basic begi or garrett kits. 93 octane, base timing retarded 2 degrees, and an intercooler.

The 2 degrees doesn't matter...it's just the fact that it's retarded.

You're better off staying on roadsterd0r1fto or whatever it is.

You see, here on MT we hold people to a certain standard of non-retardation. You are well below said standard, so this place is not for you.

Good day sir.

I wish I could because I bet I would find them rather entertaining.

I challenge you to tell Corky, in person, that your Ebay parts are just as good as his products.

I'm not saying it's a high quality manifold and downpipe but I'm running better engine management than a greddy kit. I never said the shitty manifold wasn't going to crack. I know that will happen eventually. Anyone have anything nice to say or at least some constructive criticism?

You're not running any sort of engine management at all. I fail to see how that's better than a Greddy kit.



I do have something nice to say, though.


I like your radiator. It's very..... stock.

Are you drifting on a stock 1.6 diff?

Get some proper fuel/spark mgmt and supporting mods and you'll be fine. You're only a little bit of $ away from a proper setup.

A greddy kit comes without an intercooler. As I said before... 4psi with 93 octane, 1.8 injectors, rrfpr, an intercooler, and retarded timing shouldn't cause any problems on a B6.
