we finally wired up the MSPNP...
started the car and idled weird until the tmep went up..then it was a bitch to start


nothing a temp sensor and a lighter couldn't do....bringing up the tmep on the sensor to 180 degrees allowed for the car to start

it was funky though, but did the trick

we still need to wire some things up, then is good for driving

did some more modifications. fixed the convertible top, and installed a break out strip for the gauges..i just wasn't happy with the way the wiring was done.
wired up fuel, coolant temp and other gauges.
car idles much better now and it no longer has the issue of not starting when hot.

we found out that the timing was off by like 1 tooth, so rmeoved timing belt and redid timing, set the timing to zero with stock ECU, wired in megasquirt and configured timing..car idles so much better now.

also wil be replacing the MAF with a IAT and installing a boost controller from DIYAutoTune.







more wiring than i'd like to see,,,wire tuck will be done prior to paint.

Did you have to modify the kit a lot? 9 hours is a lot of time. The couplers don't look that strong.

i acquiered a cluster **** of a car in November and put the miata on hold.
my brother got sick of the project and basically told me he was selling it...so i'm in a race against time to finish my other car, sell it and buy the miata from him.
hence why i haven't touched the miata in a very long time.

some updates:
install a Garrett GT28R turbo in place of the china charger.
fixed all the intercooler piping and may end up going 2.5 inch (i made the mistake with the 2.25, never again!)
and connected all gauges and made them work.


got an OEM shifter bushing kit


old ****


new ****






attemtping wire tucking.,


need to get a bigger housing


fuel pressure sneding unit


wil post more once i start working on the car again...

it's been a while since a last update

so far this is what it looked like before the car went under the knife for about 3 more times...


old old old


replacing bumpers and fenders


giving some life to otherwise boring parts....wrinkle paint valve cover


at this point i really thought to myself: i need to trim these wires


i attempted to make it look nice but those wires and fuse box...they had to go


so out comes the dash board, again


trimming, fixing, taping, rolling


cleaning ziptying etc


dash back on


still not happy tho


it doens't look that bad but it could be better




so out comes the dash again
and now the whole wiring harness comes out as well.
time for some trimming and soldering


the pile on the right is all unused wiring


take advnatage of the situation to install MSM pedals


this is the passenger side wiring harness..not much to do to this one


taking apart fuse box (tags: miata fuse block fuse box fuses relocation move dash)








took off all the leads


removed the airbag


getting ready for paint


finished fuse box relocation under dash


starting to lok better...could be better tho


wrinklepainted my old oil catch can and installed


driver side engine bay cleaner


dash back on, pedals installed, painted steering rack back on






bucket of wires...to be sorted and thrown out


first wash in 1 yr


the proof is in the pudding. drove the car to a friends house to show off



installing SSQV


installing EBC for the MSPNP2


venting it for now while i figur eout what to do


need to figure out an intake for this as well

before rmeoving subframe


after:










removing bushings...this idea FAILS...too long..too toxic...failed


using the old threaded rod and washers yielded a better result.
