Default Cyotani's intro and NA turbo build thread

Intro:

Hey, I'm new to the Miata scene. Been working on a 5th gen accord for a while now but I realized that was a dumb investment, so now that is stock as my daily and I picked up a miata as the project/weekend car. I'm a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student at Cal Poly Pomona, and I enjoy wrenching on my car with any free time I have. I think I might enjoy working on cars more than driving them, but going fast is pretty fun too.


Build thread: (not sure if this is the right subforum for this...?)
The goal is a fun little turbo car. Not going to track it, just some mountain drives and what not. Shooting for 160 RWHP on a 16g at 8-12 lbs of boost with stock internals While keeping the cost down without cutting corners. Still debating on how much exterior work I want do to it. Paint and fender flares and a wire tuck may be in the works but Im not going to worry about that until I get the engine running strong.


On to the pics...

Picked this up for $1300. Godspeed turbo mani, goodspeed downpipe, goodspeed 16g turbo, ebay intercooler and pipping, greddy knock off BOV, slotted brakes, some ugly 16 in chrome rims, roll cage, interior is in pretty good shape.
The bad part... Motor is blown. compression is in the 90-120 psi range (but it still drives fine)




Took it to KINOD for the first time and meet some cool Miata owners and got some inspiration for my build


Picked up a replacment 1.6 from a board member here to replace my blown motor. Has 117k miles.


picked up rear spoiler


and fender flares (not going to be mounted till i get the engine swapped in)


found some Megan EZ streets for 600


Goodbye stiff ebay coil sleeves


Hello comfort and height adjustability


The ride height: (still messing with it some). Those rims are hideous...


Found some sparco speed seats to sit a little lower and get some rollbar clearance (I'm 6'1")

Still working on the mounts to bolt it directly to the floor.



These just came in he mail
DIYPNP ECU
AEM wideband
Rx7 460cc injectors
IAT kit
BMW TPS


Currently spending all my free time reading everything on msextra. I hope to get the car to Idle smoothly with the megasquirt this weekend.



I'm sure Ill learn alot from this forum and hope to contribute some as well.
