Default Hello All

Wanted to come on in and say hello to every one.
I have been in the market for a new car for a while now after having sold my baby awhile ago:



And Now I am the proud new owner of this Classic Red 1992 Miata
In all her stock Glory...

Thanks, My plans right now are to fix the few things that need fixing,
drivers power window regulator needs replaced and the radiator has a slight leak. Then using her as a daily for the summer.. Come Winter she will be getting a SR20.

I love you. Do you know what is involved with putting a SR20 in the miata?

Let's be friends.

First off If I make no sense I apologize, Just coming home from a double shift and I am ready to go to bed.

In my opinion over all it will be the little things that make the swap difficult,
The odds and ends to finish and make for a clean install Ect...

I have swapped SR's into a range of different cars over the years and find it to be a wonderful motor to work with... I brake it down in to 3 categories. when swapping

1: Mounting
~For Mounting I am choosing to purchase the available mounts and sump (still saving for the sump), to allow a Bolt in no cutting / hammering solution to the swap.. ( I am not sure on this forums add. policy, but I chose to go this route for two reasons.. One: I am the US distributor for this mount kit.. Two: I want to stand behind and show the quality of the parts I distribute by using them in my own build ) For a Drive Shaft I will be going with a custom shaft..

2: Wiring and fuel
~This will by far be the easiest part to the whole swap the SR only needs a hand full of wires to be spliced for a fully converted wiring harness..
Depending on how much i hate my self I have considered making a all new mil-spec harness but the cost and work involved are making me really like a simple harness merge.. Fuel will only be upgraded as needed nothing over the top..

3: Misc. Odd's and End's
~This is the part I dislike the most.. hoses / radiators / fans / intercooler / Ect. Nothing hard but over all tedious and time consuming the last things to get done to make for a clean install..

I have a list of things to help make the swap go well, for example getting the Factory Miata Speedometer to work with the SR Tranny with out using expensive dig. to analog converters.. I plan to document the whole swap as I go and provided as much information as I can...

But for the summer she will just be my daily,
