Thumbs up

NA6C- Guy,
I did the intake pick-up on the cold side because of the A/C,P/S all that stuff thats hard to get to, and because intake air temps are lower that side i.e (no exhaust manifold)....................Glad you like the copper oil lines.

mine's clean in the sense that it's not cluttered, but not in the sense that it's been scrubbed down.

my next project is to use probably some dryer hose to loop under the hot side intercooler charge pipe and get the filter out from behind the radiator. I also have COPS to install. I'm also going to go make a list, cause you guys are giving me lots of ideas.

Think about the rotation of the engine. The head is much further from the crankshaft's centerline than the location of the engine mounts.

This setup makes no sense from the point of view of being effective.

The engine doesn't just shift to the right, it actually raises itself from the torque and that is where the strap, the way it is, does absolutely nothing.

The main shift i care about is side to side. As it effects response and shifter location causing misshifts or hard to find gates.

Have you watched a car like ours on the dyno recently? The Majority of movement is rotation towards the passenger side.

I'm done... it works and was cheap. It isn't even on the car anymore, it was just to help isolate a vibration, which it didn't do. It DID minimize motor movement though.

We could go back and forth for days, I imagine, but the reality is that I've tried it, and I'm telling you, it's a helluva worthwhile mod. Why not whip one up yourself and give it a whirl?

I'd still have mine installed but the turbo takes up the space where it used to reside.

It's actually bolted in now and fit where it should be. Exhaust is done all the way to the diff and I hope to finish that this weekend. Then I just need to redo some brake lines that I bent to **** and do some temp wiring (OBDII port for troubleshooting and temp ECU mount) to get it running before I put the dash back in.

Gotta get it done soon as the weather is turning, golf season is close, and I need to get to the course FAST.

Thanks! Hopefully that attention leads to a mostly problem-free installation and operation.


Frank, that looks awesome! After riding in our local LS1 Miata, I believe you'll be able to get where ever you want as fast as you want, that thing was insane...

Engine shot as seen last weekend at the dyno day thanks to rotornut. Looking OE, sort of. Hard ignore the eBay air filter, cam gears and purple bov.

Not my car, but while it's paint was being ruined beyond recognition I added some go fast parts to it:
Couple intercoolers, an extra AC condensor, badass never before seen triple exhuast, super roof downforce trans am spoiler. There's a turbo above the box that says "Nic" on it that should have gotten thrown on for more fastness not hit block coolness

Here are some of my car.
The engine bay is dirty as hell, if global warming ever lives up to it's reputation I'll spend the time to getting it clean again.
