Wideband and boostgauge on its way! Picking up rx7 460 redtops tomorrow


Edit: Btw, curly, you did a horrible job at twisting my arm, only because of your "I'm only 56" did I assume your wisdom with age was worth it's weight it gold. And I'm sure you saved me a lot of wasted money and a hell of a headache

Thanks!

I've actually started my turbo build here: https://www.miataturbo.net/build-threads-57/1-6l-na-mt-w-14b-turbo-build-megasquirted-lots-pics-63306/


For the wiring, If I remember correctly, I just snipped off any of the plugs from the wiring that went to the manual transmission. You'll need these to replace the plugs that are on the automatic's. One was the reverse light, the other I can't remember, neutral switch I believe. ( to start the car, trans has to be in neutral, and you press the clutch in.

BTW, some of the writeups said you have to replace the the automatic pedal assembly with the manuals - thats complete garbage and what wasted 99% of my time (and why you see my steering wheel missing in one of the pics). The clutch pedal alone is easily swappable without tearing the car apart. You'll want to grab JUST the brake pedal from the manual as well, as its thinner.
