Where is the blue hose going that's connected on the SC bypass valve? Normally it goes to the nipple you've blocked off on the outlet.

I think it's an old Sebring M45 based on the metal intake tube and unmarked outlet. Either way the kit is close enough to a Jackson Racing M45 (JRSC), with exception of the fueling stuff.

Try reaching out to Rev9Autosport. It specializes in Miata JDM parts and he might know. His volk and fender flare pics, for example, are often accompanied by specs against offsets and such.

ondrapistelka,

I've never read anyone remaking a TDR or Moss adjustable tensioner. In the US, it's probably easier to buy and very few SC owners are DIYers. I *think* very few went to Europe,...

I'd caution against going through all that work cutting up an intercooler unless you're very certain about the efficiency impacts.

It'd be better if you could find other ways to improve airflow,...

I think you fixed your problem when you added the top baffle that came with the kit. Your post above indicates most cooling tests with the IC installed - but without the top baffle/panel that TDR...

"In good shape" meaning the TB belt was inspected for proper cam positioning as well? it's been a while, but I think it's supposed to be 19 "teeth" between the I/E cam gears.

Nice build! Just be careful with that proportioning valve, as your M45 inlet elbow may need to take the same spot. You may have to rotate it 90* or bend the brake lines a bit more.
