wow, thats one clean engine for just being taken out. Thumbs up. I personally am going to be painting my block a matte silver so that I can see leaks easier in the future.

I'll likely do the same next time I swap motors.

I thought about that when I was painting my oil pan. But I think everything blacked out will look pretty neat too. One of these days it will probably come out again to put some new goodies in the cylinders.

Looks great... but sucks for id'ing oil leaks and stuff. I'd suggest against it for that one reason.

Heck yeah, looking good man. Came out well it appears. What do you pay for powder coating over there. I was told my a classmate he just had his entire truck bed utility box powdercoated black for $30. I was always told previously that is was super expensive.

Actually I chose against the powdercoating and just painted them myself. I figure I saved myself $60 or so. I think the intake was 30-40 and the rail was 20. Assuming I can get a damn throwout bearing the motor will be back at home this weekend.

Nice, looks good for being painted. Hope it stays that way.
What's the deal with no throwout bearing?

When I powerwashed the tranny I didn't think about pullin the bearing and such out so, since I only get to work on it over the weekends, it rusted shut. Trying to find a Miata TO bearing at 9pm on a Saturday, well leaving out several trips and curse words to AutoZone, I couldn't get one.

Ok, so the motor is back in, and basicly back together. Just need to weld the WG flange back on, and make a new wastegate pipe that goes into the DP. I think i'm also going to make a cat delete pipe. Here are a few pics of the progress.

Yea, im pretty happy with it. Due to a fuel leak, some of the ral and intake got the paint messed up.., I still need to reroute the boost controller lines, and make a decent mount for the overflow bottle. Hopefully I can get it all straightened out and put it on the dyno. Yes, I used 1 90* and 2 45* bends. I forgot what radius, I think they were 4" or so. They were just the normal size radius for 2.5".
