there is alot of bling bling under that hood of urs

hustler 12-09-2008 01:07 PM

nice, looks a lot like my car.

What is your ride height at the fender?
Do you scrape the scooper frequently?
Does the scooper get full exposure to air?

I want to keep my r-pack lip, but I'm worried that I'll rip off the scooper if I go off track.

Saml01 12-09-2008 02:47 PM

Too clean.

Mr. Wob 12-09-2008 02:59 PM

Ride height is 12.5 front and 12.75 rear.

I live in NYC so I scrap more than I would like, but if you are careful its not often. I used to scrap more with my FMsprings/Illumina setup but now with my 949 Tein Flex its stiff enough to avoid scraps.

The scooper gets fresh air. Its designed for the R lip. But like everything BEGI- nothing fits, so expect to fiddle with it a little bit. The new design bolts it to the rad supports instead of the lip. I dont really like that idea either so I am working on some extensions that mount to the frame with break away bolts.

I have a Koyo 55mm rad, the FCM/2/3rd's Cobra fan shroud, air scooper and 180 thermostat - I stay very very cool. In the summer I never budged off a normal range. In the winter I am actually cooler than stock.


Here is the interior:

that looks so hot..I am drooling right now....I'm not even crazy about na's, but that one....mmmmmm

hustler 12-09-2008 03:10 PM

wow, our cars are really similar. I may switch to flex, or something similar. I'm probably going to give BEGi the scooper back and ask them to make one to hang under the lip which doesn't mount to the radiator.

Thanks for the info.

As for the water temps, ever had the car on the track? I also have an FM hood to help out.

Mr. Wob 12-09-2008 03:17 PM

Post up your car - I could care less about a thread hijack lol.

I havent had the car to the track since I finished the build but based off some "closed circuit" drives, I think I should be more than fine.

just a 1991 w/ a 1.9l 99 motor, begi s3, bilstein/GC (corner weighted), sparco sprints, 6ul's...I guess a lot of cars on here are similar now that I think about it.

/hijack

1991 pearl BRG (think db9-r) BEGi S3, MSpnp, '99 swap, 1865cc 8.6:1/BP&balanced, "cleaned-up" head, 5-speed, 3.90 r&p w/torsen, coolant reroute, Spec S3 clutch, huge radiator, 3" enthuza, Sparco Sprints, Bilstein/GC (450/375), RB sways, sport brakes, lol

Saml01 12-09-2008 03:45 PM

Where in NYC are you?

How is that clutch holding? I havent heard much positive about them, but they sure are cheaper than the Xtreme.

Manhattan: Hells Kitchen - right next to Columbus Circle.

BK? What neighborhood? Who have you been using for your dyno tuning on your MS?

I just wanted the one that would hold with a light pressure plate. I only have the car at 10psi now, and I'm not driving it hard. I side stepped the clutch a bit at 4k rpm, and it slipped and i made the sad face. After putting a few miles and some torque on it, I don't think the clutch was ever really broken in on 94whp.

It chatters a little, but the pedal is light. If it holds 230lb/ft, I'll buy another one.

Check with me before you buy because I want to see what happens after some action at the track. Its a metal clutch, so it should only get better with a little heat.

Mr. Wob 12-09-2008 05:16 PM

I have an ACT Xtreme and ACT ProLite flywheel and I love them - zero complaints, no chatter and no slip. Pedal is only a little harder and the flywheel is very very forgiving. Not looking to buy, but I was hoping to hear a more positive review eventually on the Spec clutches so we could have a cheaper alternative to the Xtreme.

curly 12-09-2008 08:08 PM

love your car, interior could use an aftermarket steering wheel, I love my momo champion.

slutz4 12-09-2008 08:33 PM

nice car, very well put together

Mr. Wob 12-09-2008 08:43 PM

Im happy with an airbag, thanks :)

Thanks guys.

johndoe 12-09-2008 09:32 PM

Wheels look great. Glad to see another Begi powered 6ul shod NA in the metro area.

Mr. Wob 12-09-2008 10:57 PM

Wow - we have pretty similar cars too lol.

Mine is an S4 and I am running a FM bar in the front and stock rear bar and no COPS but pretty close otherwise lol.

Was that 250rwhp you ran at 14.5psi? or corrected hp? Gotta be rwhp, right? Any boost creep? Guessing by the half lb psi you are running external gate?

Were did you get tuned at around here?

johnwag 12-10-2008 12:50 AM

Damn Mr. Wob! You're a rebel! Parking in a No Parking zone in front of the showroom entrance at the Ferrari dealership. ;)

When I think turbo track miata, I think black or white NA with 6ul's and a turbo kit. Very nice!:bowdown:

Your car looks like mine will, but my car is black.......which means it's dirty.

Toddcod 12-10-2008 01:40 AM

Nice ride, very clean.
