You can do the injectors/rail at any time. No reason why you can't get boosting on your 205s if that's what you have now.

You should get the bung welded on the dp before installing it, otherwise, you'll just end up pulling it off again later.

We should be able to get the turbo hard parts installed (mani, turbo, dp, charge pipes, fmic) in a day.

That's kinda what I've been figuring. That tech edge...it's a standard bosch-type o2 sensor, so the bung is nothing special, right?

Yeah, it's just a Bosch sensor.

I want to do it May 12th - same as the NE. There's two "for sures" on this forum (you'd make 3), one maybe. I've got a Spec, supercharged and IRTB Miata ready to go. Just wanted more from here... maybe there's not that many in ATL... thought there was.

Heh glad you bumped this thread up.

I have a big *** SnapOn MIG. Need to get wire, do you know where I can pick some up locally? Anyone care to show me how to use it? Of course, you'd be welcome to use my lift and tools while you're over. I have some new exhuast stuff ready to go on that will need to be welded (midpipe to muffler). Also othe Ben (93LE) needs a bung welded to his exhaust.

I'll be ready to dyno shortly after getting the exhuast hung.

damn Ben... Do you run some kind of auto industrial salvage yard? The toys never stop coming! You can pick up cheap wire at Northern, Harbor Freight. I got my CO2 tank and gas from PyeBarker (the number works, can't remember if they changed their name or not). Lots of welding supplies up that way though- try local.google.com.

I'm headed over to TGprix today to visit a track event in progress. Gotta work this weekend (and finish building a swing set). Then Monday I'm off to play. Aren't you near Balanced Performance? I might be able to convince my visitor to drive up that way. - rob

If so, we should do a who has more cumulative HP and who has the most blown engines. :gay:

Side note: Next year we should do a neutral ground East Coast Dyno Day!

Ben, if you don't have one local and don't want to pay shipping, I have a Northern and Harbor Freight local to me, and I can pick up some wire for ya, if you let me know how much you're looking for. I was thinking about heading over to HF tonight anyway.

I haven't contacted a dyno shop yet, though dyno lab has the most votes of interest. I will contact the shop next week to firm things up, then post details here.

Hmmm cumulative? With a sc, two NAs and three turbos... We don't stand much of chance. Unless we're talking top 3. It's not my engine I'm worried about... my trans sounds like a howling pack of dogs. I don't think it's any coincidence that the better my tune got, the louder my trans got. That's why I'm itching to get to the dyno- I can't drive the car w/o nailing the throttle. Definitely will be at 18psi for the dyno run... maybe more. FE3s are dropping in price. That's a deal for a brutally strong 2.0L. I guess everybody who wants one, has one.

East coast meet would be kewl. By then Philip should have all kinds of sponsor dollars.

Hey Rob, you've got the red interior...have you found anything that really cleans all your red bits, or are yours all a slightly different shade as well? Also, have you figured out a trick for cleaning the black top of the dash without making it all sticky and goopey?

Haven't got around to cleaning anything inside. My seats are aftermarket and they're now looking a little rough. So's the carpet (rough and aftermarket) and it bleaches out regularly so I have to redye it. Not pretty like it was ten years ago when I did the swap.

There's a Harbor Freight at Beaver Ruin- right at lawerenceville hwy- best deal on MIG wire IMO.

Woo hoo, picked up MIG wire today! Unfortunately, the smallest quantity HF had in the bigger spool size was 10 lbs ($47.00). Didn't have time to play today, hopefully tomorrow.

So you local guys, if you need something welded, I may not have skills but I have tools!

Thanks again for the heads up Rob.

Even if you ATL guys don't want to roll, still come by and hang out. I'm calling today and trying to get things set up. Make sure you get your mother's day shopping done on Friday.
