Default Going back to NA

Hey guys, I've decided that enough is enough and I'm going to take my car back to stock.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all who've assisted me and made me laugh while I tried to make it work.

I also wanted to provide a heads up of what's going to be listed in the For Sale section of mt.net pretty soon:

Here's a list of what I'm going to put of for sale next week:

- Used Begi S5 Turbo kit without WG and BOV. This one has a T3 60 trim. My turbine housing is a .63 and the compressor was swapped out for a T04E compressor. It also came with the largest IC available from Begi.
- Tial BOV and WG:(I bought both brand new and used them for less than 3,000 miles
- AEM: PNP for 96/97
- RC injectors
- Enthuza Midpipe and straight exhaust for an NB

I'm aware that most of us mt.net members are stingy (myself included) and of the fact that there aren't many NB owners here so my guess is most of my stuff will not be adequate for you but I still want to give you guys first crack at things before posting them in other forums.

BTW, since I've seen it before, don't waste your breath asking me to part the turbo kit up. It ain't gonna happen

I'll still be around to bust your ***** more often than some would like

I've had a blast.

Rafa

Marc,
We probably can work something out. I have the S5 hardware on order w/o turbo.
I already sent Rafa a PM.

Man gotta be fast around here. Marc, I am interested in the other parts of the kit as well. IC & piping, injectors, etc.


Rafa if you split it up every scrap of that kit will find a home here.

Rafa, sad to hear that, I was looking forward to driving a Turbo Miata when visiting the DR, lol.
I hope you figure out what your next approach will be as I doubt you can bare the stock power level.
Good luck to ya and by all means to stick around for some of that old man humor
Regards,
Dan

Dan, you're always more than welcome. I won't stay NA.

This is the deal: **** MY TUNER! I'll go with a smaller one in the not too distant future but with a Bipes. And for sure I'll ask dumb questions!

I'm going around with a car that won't idle good if the A/C is on and which if it doesn't have the A/C on doesn't see temps above 190 no matter the traffic; if for some reason I decide to turn the A/C on the coolant temp climbs to 220* in a few minutes. **** MY TUNER

As you know, I was planning on building my engine (here's a little secret for most). I had already bought the ETD Rods and FM Pistons. My "tuner" has an Evo VIII and he's built it twice and twice it has broken before the 1,000Km mark. WTF?

Someday I'll buy a completely built engine in the States.

I'm not done with this turbo stuff by any means

Regards,

Rafa

It ain't gonna happen! I have the 4.1 gears though

I'm getting a sense that I'm going to enjoy this thread immensely!

Nothing would pleasure me more than your above statement. I hope all the parts end here.

I really, really like you youngsters.

I get the sense you're going to enjoy that T3 more than you know!

We'll reach some understanding.

But I'm keeping the car and will keep working at it!

I'll be back turbo someday but not before asking multiple stupid questions

Cool, I am not too far from you here in Miami.

My wife has been to the Dominican Republic a couple of times. She has a friend of hers that lives there.
