so the braided water lines just connect to the "regular" water source locations in the front of the engine? what size are those braided lines, 5/16"?

What percentage of turbo miata's in Slovakia are the fruit of Sturovo's hard work?

What about Europe?

It seems like you're making a lot of these kits, and probably making a lot of european miata owners very happy.

Keep up the good work!

Yes Vlad, the hose I use is 8mm id which is equivalent to 5/16". It is a good match for the regular connection points.

Luke, I have been mapping progress using a fish bowl diagram.

You're absolutely correct, its an Evo 3 style from an Eclipse/Talon.
I'll shoot you a PM to see if we can try to find a way to get a turbo into your hands.

Thank you Luke, I am glad you like it
I learned to make meaningless diagrams during 6 sigma training in the 90's and thankfully the skill has stuck.
(Or was that fish bone and not fish bowl?)

Recent stuff... a setup for a 1.6na based around a Volvo td04


with divided merge and male turbo flange


and a 1.8 set up for a Focus rs t25 turbo. (I started making braided oil feed lines.)


Flow should be decent


and a couple of my favorite 1.6na td04-13t setups

I worked with a 6 Sigma "black belt" who couldn't find his own *** with both hands awhile back. He was great at painting lines of various colors on the parts department floor for no apparent reason. That guy was so useless.

But I love the fish bowl diagram.

This^^^ although I cant say it was all bad as it made identifying nosers and tards pretty easy.

When making the Volvo turbo manifold I came across this, a duratec manifold supposedly made from cast steel. It looks well made.



This should also fit the NC I guess. The downpipe would be tight but it looks like it could work as the Volvo turbo housing is shorter than most.

And a gearbox bolt clamp bracket


Great stuff.
Where/what do I search to find the gearbox bolt clamp bracket?
Thanks,

Those kits are coming along very well. I will have to place my order for a 1.8 using a TD04 in the near future.

Jeff, I use steel bar (25 x 5 mm) to make the bracket and the clamp is from an auto store.

Jae your plan sounds good! As long as it is a Td04 from a Subaru or Volvo it should be straight forward.

Meanwhile I made a Californian compliant 80mm downpipe
(I think 100 mm pipe can fit when using a kink in the middle, must try!)



A t25 set up for a 1.6 na


and a replacement 1.8 NA downpipe


I came across some 1.6mm 309 electrodes that work well for exhaust pipes. 35 electrode positive amps and a steady hand give good results.
Decent penetration, no sugaring or splatter with self cleaning flux. Neat, strong 1 pass welds have never been this easy.

First of all, great work. I can definitely see your welding skills improve as you build more of these kits. (This is very much a compliment!)

A couple of questions... What material and what thickness are you using for the downpipes?

Thought I would post up my flowish log with an extra el to top mount my TD04.

Mike, I usually use 304L with a 1.5mm thick wall but this also depends on the local supplier to an extent. The 80mm downpipe has 1.2mm wall thickness although the bends are 1.5mm wall.

John, that looks great. Space pretty tight on your car compared to a MX5. I made a few manifolds with the flange at an angle where space was tight like this one.



but looking at how close your strut is to the engine probably this type would not fit either.

Recent stuff....

A td04 1.6 NA set up mounted on a v block pedestal for added drama.
(I will try with chicks next!)



A t28 1.8 NB kit with upgraded turbo studs


and a td04 1.8 NA kit with a couple of bungs

Holy ****! I never would have guessed this thread would have evolved to this after seeing the goods on page 1! You went from serious sketch to legit in just two years. Nice progression! Keep it up!

Ritchie, I guess it all went pear shaped after I got a present of a dc welder 12 months ago. Before then it was just for fun but when this beast arrived the gloves came off!



Since then I have made some other serious purchases and recently bought some flat files and a few drill bits.

The next hurdle in my quest to understand "what is miata?" is truly scary as it involves something I can neither see nor touch..... FIRMWARE
