The transmission breaks if it doesn't save there.


Yeah theres demand for some items .. post the link to the auction. We all see problems with the drivetrain, like it was mention in some of the other post the 6 speed from newer years is used along with the 1.8 differentials for the 1.6.

Just a few days ago a friend offered me his old 944 IC for free and I passed cause I didn't think I could use it, but didn't consider a v-mount. Says theyre good for 400hp on Porsches. Could you post pictures of the v-mount setup? Car looks great by the way.
thanx

This IC is recommended.
The size and capacity are just good for NA/NB miata.
Moreover, it is possible to use it by no processing.

The temperature of the engine room falls when making it to V mount.
The suction temperature is steady low.

In the D-J control, this is very effective.

That is a sweet setup. I like the car.

In the local sportbike community, we just use the dyno to get out bikes a good tune. We really don't car about the numbers either. Main thing is the bike is optimal.

Beutiful setup.

It is so. NB dash was diverted to My NA.
This work is active in Japan.
Because the NA dash becomes old, it is recommended in refreshing.

Please wait for posting the pics for a while.

the radiator is mounted as it is by the hole of pure.
Mounting-plate on theradiator side is removed, and it is personally fixed with the M6 screw.
The aluminum board of 5mm that fixes it is only set up in the body.
The aluminum board is fixed to the hole of the Stabilizer bracket screw.
The body is able not to be cut, not to weld, and to fix if it does so.

For me, running in the Tsukuba-circuit earlier is a main target.

The rear differential gear is also weak in the '89-'93 1.6 liter cars. Many people here change to the stronger 1.8 rear differential gears from '94 and newer cars.

Please show us pictures of other cars in your club also. We like to see new ideas for modifications.

Thanks.

Thank you for very effective advice.

It did not know 6MT to be strong.
That thing 6MT strong is not so known in Japan.
Over 300hp friend who attacks the circuit is using the reinforced crossing mission of OS-Giken.

Can 6 speed transmission be endured up to how many horsepower?
Or, even how much torque can be endured?


My miata and other car in our club, It has already change to the stronger 1.8 rear differential gears from '94 and newer cars.

It is likely to often dino (Dino? Dinopak?) use it in the point that the load can be freely multiplied.

However, a lot of settings are actually done by really running because there are a lot of different points.

I can't speak to the limit of the 6spd, but I know there are some cars pushing over 400whp that haven't broken them. I can't honestly recall a thread on here or miata.net about one being broken. They are much stronger.

It is considerably attractive information.
Thank you.

I know there is some translation error here, but let me see if I have this correct. You removed the stock lower mounting brackets. Fabricated your own mounts and bolts them into the car using the original mounting holes for the lower mounting brackets?

I had been considering this myself. I was just looking for the right rad and ic combo. It looks like the stock rad fits though with your setup. Which is great.

Yes. 400hp with the 6MT is possible. And it is an easy change to make.

Miata is called "Roadster" in Japan.
It is url that drove "Roadster" in the part category.

Yahoo!オークション - ロードスター

*It worries about whether it is possible to browse neatly.

Yes,sure.

My Rad is stock rad.
However, there is a problem, and when it is stock rad, the ground clearance is severe.
I'll recommend rad of making specially to be prepared.


Is my interpretation a correct answer??
Please forgive my poor translation.

Cool, I just wanted to make sure I understood what you were trying to say. I figured that the stock radiator might give poor ground clearance. I was looking into doing something like what you have, and had my eye on the radiator from the RX7 FD. Its about 3-4" shorter than the stock miata radiator. And if you turn it 180 degrees the bottom outlet will curve and point up toward the motor. Even better still, the FD rad doesnt have a cap, so you could easily built a remote fill without modifying the radiator.

Here is a pic of an aftermarket FD rad:
