Very cool. Gotta admire a guy who's not afraid to cut up his car. And take lots of pictures. You're IC routing is perfect for a giant intercooler when you upgrade that cute IC and turbo.

The cutting wasn't bad. Only the two holes in the fenders. Nothing structural.

Yeah, that IC and turbo was going to be perfect for the 8 PSI that the Zoom3 would run. Might be changing directions soon. They still haven't released it. After I did this routing, I saw how EASY it would have been to fit a 20x4x3 or so. This IC was a nice package, though. The brackets that they had on it bolted straight up to the tow hook bracket holes.

Wrong again. Looking at going with the Adaptronic from Travis. Someone in the US has to try this thing.

Waiting for a phone call to discuss some details and then probably order one up. PnP for an NB FTW.

Well, it looks like I won't make it. I just ordered an Adaptronic ECU, so I can't get it here, get it installed and running before I go over that limit. I hope that it works as well as it appears to. Guinea pig, FTW.

Time to start looking through the MS threads to steal some target AFR, fuel and spark tables.

There's a fair few Miata, MX5. Roadster users knocking around now.

The Adaptronic forum is a great source, there's also a few guys on mx5nutz running the Adap in the UK.

Well, other than two hose clamps for the turbo water lines, a radiator overflow line and filling the radiator, I'm done. I guess done is a loaded word, as I have no ECU. So, this thing will sit until I figure out what I am going to do on that. Piddled around and wrapped the heater core lines, built a heat shield and some other little odds and ends, got the IC charge pipes in for good.
