I dont agree with the smaller rad and the ram style header, but I sure like the thread build.

By the way... that t-shirt still had some use.

What don't you agree about the ramhorn? It is the most efficient style manifold for my power goals, I had to go to the half radiator because of my intercooler set-up, surprisingly it holds just about the same amount of coolant as my old Ron-Davis, due to this one being about 1" thicker.

EDIT: That t-shirt does have a good use, it's covering my expensive *** explosed head and cams from dust. lol

Ramhorn is great.
He doesn't know dick about miata's.

The radiator however I'm not very fond of either. I'm sure it gets the job done though.

Yeah, obviously I would rather have my full size radiator but I don't think I will have a problem at all. I have a big spal fan, and re-route so I should be good. I don't autox or track my car, I use it only on nice days and doing some highway pulls...we'll see.

Sheesh, story of my life, lol. Next year i'm going to make the switch just for that very reason when I freshen up my motor. I'm gonna be shooting for around the same power that you are, but on way different hotside. We need more 400whp+ 1.6 cars out there

As long as you have a serious puller fan I don't think you will ever have a problem with that radiator. What are the specs on the intercooler? It looks pretty thick.

Also, what is the extra breather port in the valve cover for? Crinkle red rules!

Looks like he blocked off the breather port on the driver side of the valve cover soo he added another port in the same breather cell as the passenger side

The intercooler is a ETD custom made piece, it has a 3.5" thick core, 12" tall w/Tial BOV coming off the cold side endtank, duel backdoor design.

We do need more high horsepower Miata's in general! I have no idea what the record is for a 1.6L Miata but I am going to try to have the highest recorded horsepower Miata in the country.

I think that once I rebuild this motor I will go to a long nose crank also w/a ATI dampener and billet oil pump gears; the short nose crank has never gave me problems at all and I am running a mazdaspeed HV oil pump.

My builder recommended two breather ports for my valve cover, I don't know the reason why but what the hell lol...they're both located under the baffle in the valve cover and I removed the stock PVC.

I saw that the nipple was gone, but I had just figured that he was going to put a threaded fitting in it aswell.
