Default Noobatron here to sponge your knowledge

My name is Ian, I am living in Bellingham, WA. Mainly came to this site as you guys are the only ones doing anything exciting, turbo wise. Don't actually own a miata but do have a couple mazda products. 1991 escort gt with a boosted bp05 using the vj20 from the jdm gtx. The dyno plot is below as well as the condition of the turbo, ouch. Also own a b6t powered 88 323 gtx. Currently planning to build a monster. Will post more pictures and details when I get home from work. Look forward to being a part of this rather entertaining community.

**** man, you have my dream shitbox. The things I'd do for a 323gtx for a winter car. Damn. Any more pics/videos of that thing? I have such a weird obsession with those little cars.

Oh, also pics of the escort gt!

The gtx is by far one of my favorite cars ever. Right now im just giving it the much needed attention its been missing for the past 15-20 years, but once I move into my house I should be making some pretty drastic modifications.
got a few pics here of the gtx:





Heres the good ol' escort which got me into this mess in the first place. I am going to be having a long block put together here shortly consisting of some m-tuned forged H-beams with arp hardware that I have, I will be picking up some 10:1 wiseco forged pieces and then my recently purchased bp4w head to top it off. Probably gonna try some fancier stuff down the road like modifying a sheet metal intake to fit but for now just going to run a 323 gtr intake and turbo setup. Once I get bored I am going to have a twinscroll mani made up for a holset.





woohoo

Awesome. So you obviously love the BP/B6 platform. When are you getting a miata?

Funny you should say that. Im definitely on the fence about picking one up but not sure it would be a good idea right now. If I get rid of the escort the option is definitely on the table. I'd really like to get a awd protege too though.... I guess it will depend on what the wife wants to do with her corolla.

Ah, well you won't regret a miata. They are amazing to drive. AWD protege? Are those extremely rare, or just some kind of conversion that must be done? Any details on that? I love the older body style proteges.

Pretty darn rare, especially in decent shape. Factory awd. Older body style is definitely a favorite.

And yes, the bp/b6t in my opinion is great. Very simple motors.

This is true. If I werent so heavily invested in the porsche stuff for rear wheel drive goodness a miata would be a no brainer for me.

So I swear I don't like red, but beggers can't be choosers.









imediate plans include buffing the paint up. Cleaning all the rat **** out. Getting the damn thing running and then upgrading to all oem gtr stuff. I also just picked up a hx-35 for my gtx build.

Do not want Escort. Do want 4wd Protege. Do not want dealing with the shredded transmissions resulting from what i'd do to said 4wd Protege.

ARG MY BRAIN.
