the setup i have so far is very in-complete (that's why my car's not running). just really trying to take my time with everything and learn as much as possible as i go.

i'm planning on going with the ETD mani, Precision SC61 turbo, ARTech downpipe and exhaust...trying to get as many v-bands as possible thrown in there.

i really plan to eventually do a motor build because my goal is to be in the 300-340 range. i think 750cc RC's should be good for that. for internals, i want either Wiseco or JE pistons and gonna run the M-tuned rods. the part i'm trying to acquire right now is a 99 head from a guy that i know who parts out wrecked miatas.

parts that i've already acquired are:

Flyin Miata dual feed rail
an intercooler big enough to support a 400hp application
MSPNP running low rez for injectors
Tial 38mm gate
Spec Stage II clutch
a bunch of other random stuff i can't think of right now.


sorry no pictures as of yet. I will do my best to create a half-decent build thread, that way when i ask stupid questions you guys will have something cooler to look at than just words.

sell the fuel rail to a CR.Netter

Use the money for a coolant reroute

Nah, I got it from a local friend of mine. Looks like it'll be half decent.
