Hey again guise. So much has happened since I started the install

So, It took me a good two days to get off all the rusted exhaust bolts, most of my time spent on that tri-bolted area of the headers. I had to cut every single ******* bolt off with a dremel.

The install was not too bad, the downpipe has some fitment issues that can be cleared up by adjusting the exhaust hanger and pulling it up a little bit. The charge pipe rattles against the hood when shut completely, however I assume this will be eliminated when I build my FMIC in.

Now, about the car when it was running.
So, it kind of caught on fire. The way the new bracket they sent me is designed, the oil line can only be run one way. Unbeknownst to me, this one particular way rubbed the oil line raw, and the combination of that and exhaust manifold heat blew it open and burned my dipstick, megasquirt vaccum line, throttle cable, valve cover, another vaccum line coming from brake booster, and made everything stink like oil forever.

To make it work I had to modify the bracket with a grinder so that the oil line can be run a proper way. I wish I knew enough about the way things should have been beforehand, and saw this obvious flaw. I feel partially retarded about this, but feel that a "starters kit" of turbo kits should have considered this.

The car is running under 7lbs of boost, and I have worked out the warmup\idle with my megasquirt unit. It seems everytime I read more of the megamanual the car runs slightly better.

I am currently scouting out a FMIC setup, if any of you are getting rid of an NB setup Id be interested, I am also going to buy some rx7 injectors and maybe bring the boost up to 8 or 9.

I can post pictures if any of you are interested in my melty *** dipstick.

I have an older FM2 intercooler setup (on my DD) that I'm planning on replacing soon, looks like this:

Let me know if interested.

necropost.

I bought the car from angrytoaster. We're college friends.

I figured you'd get a kick out of the outcome of the car.
it's running "stable" at 7 psi. no knocking, no dangers. its still got fire extinguisher crap on one side of the engine bay and I've been meaning to just tear the turbo, manifold, intake, and other parts off and clean everything up.
I picked up an FM intercooler kit, and I plan on finding some bigger injectors, but for now im quite happy.

however... its down on power and stumbles when you get on it. As I stated in my welcome post I'm going to shelve the car for now until I get some reading done and get everything organized in my head.

Alright you bunch of turkeys, here is the way it is. Listen up, 'cause I'm only going to scratch this out 99 more time, so your opportunity for a little wisdom is limited. Severely limited, maybe, but not likely here or now..... never mind. Anyway.......

The rising rate regulator can provide a very good control over the A/F in the zero to 6 psi range. It is fully adjustable with regard to onset of gain, and gain itself. It even stays on trac nicely.

When used with a returnless system, the potential fuel delivery comes down to about five psi. Reasons are the higher stock fuel pressure and the fixed output of a pump. Thus the "span" of fuel pressures available is less.

A handicap with the non-return style EFI, is the requirement to add a secondary high pressure pump.

The return style EFI can operate at 6 psi without the secondary pump. Up to 9 psi with a 130 psi secondary pump .

There is no way to retard the ignition with the regulator. Try as I might.

Some retard is needed at 5 psi boost unless an intercooler is present.

The vedooo does that all the time so one has some safety when at max boost. Still not a good part. Two/three degrees of retard is about right, but does not do any favors when off boost. Same retard needed for the regulator. Same result.

E85 will require a bunch of additional fuel flow. Cooling will approach a medium quality intercooler. Octane will work small wonders.

The regulator can be tuned by the onset screw to account for a great part of the additional fuel flow required by E85. An on/off switch could be installed in a parallel circuit to control the use from the driver seat.

That could be done to a normally aspirated car even.

Still, the rr regulator is not as good as the MeagerSquirt. I like the MS, even on a '99+.

Ask Beaniac to make one for you. He has more experience with the MS than all the rest of us combined. Besides, he is a humorous, gregarious fellow and much smarter than one thinks at first introduction. That's what his wife told me.

Thanks for the order, by all means, but consider some other possibilities. Maybe even the IC......

But first, talk to beaniousiac.

It's a perfect example of how long it takes BEGi to respond to an email/thread

I knew necroing this would have lead to disaster. lol

There is an MS2 in the car, toaster actually had a change of heart and ordered one all those years ago.

I've been working on tuning the car, but first i've been spending my time reading the megamanual and learning what does what. So far I have determined that at 7PSI im going to need larger injectors, they are at full duty and im still leaning out in the higher RPMs.
that and im fabbing up an exhaust, as this one is crap.

Isn't bearnaisiac the twins?

Syty, if your injectors are at 100% duty you needed new injectors a long time ago.
However, Bijouterisiac has written an excellent guide on plug and play injectors a long time ago, the rx8 yellows are nice and cheap if you don't fancy splurging on som ev14's. That said, the latter is considered to get you the most bragging rights and fueling niceness.

I just bought the car so most stuff is new to me. The car is parked right now until I sort it out, but I did already order a set of rx7 injectors based on some information I read on this forum.

Do you go to WVU? I don't live that far away if you need help with anything.

I /went/ to WVU.
I'm now down at the north central airport.

I'm always looking for car folk to wrench with, im actually near I43 in cheat lake. Right now im going to tear the turbo and manifold off and do a little house keeping while I wait for the injectors to come in. as well as cut out areas where I can slide boost piping into an intercooler.

I'm glad they finally finished 43, makes my drive down there easier, but 857 is probably one of the best Miata roads around. Just don't get stuck behind a dump truck.

hit Mud Pike just at the exxon station before rich's farm. It's one of the better "touge" roads in the area. I like 857 but dump trucks are a plenty with the stone quarry out there.
