lol, apparently that's the thinking in TX. Forged, cast? One piece, three piece. It's all the same.

Well, the wheels still haven't sold.... Didn't think it would be so hard to sell SSR MK1 wheels without losing my ass. I've been offered every curb rashed xxr and diamond steelies in TX though.

I weld for a living. Although it is MIG and stick, a friend of mine has shown me how to TIG and let me use his machine. It isn't that hard. I've only practiced about five minutes, but steel and...

Those of you with a Tig machine: Do you make extra money off of it by doing side work? I'll be going to school in October and am wondering if it would be a...

Fair enough, I completely forgot about GM's fuel saving attempts. And I don't have it anymore, although after seeing what has happened to it, I wish I hadn't let it go.

Oh, and you sluts are going to have to do a hell of a lot more. Not new to the Miata game, nor any of y'all's bullshit lol. I do appreciate the input though.

Yes, I do haha. Oil pressure isn't bad. Definitely acceptable. I will drain the mobil1 soon enough.

I know there are how-tos on this, but I'll have the motor apart to build the bottom end for boost, so why not new valve seals and a valve job and reshimming....

lifter ticking after driving... BP4W.

So is this normal seeing as they are solid lifters? I am using Mobil1 synthetic. Just swapped the motor into my 91. I haven't had the chance to hear another BP4W so I can't tell if this is a normal...

^looks like that's the plan.... Apparently even though the b8 pistons do give lower compression they've got a thin wall somewhere on them and don't hold up well to a bit of power or much detonation....

I'm not talking about stock rods at ALL. I know I need forged rods, I'll be going to a BE pump, MS2 ETC. And no e85 here in east TX unfortunately.... So I guess I'll be sourcing new pistons. I enjoy...

You're right, we do have the technology, but with lower compression I can run more boost and timing. And 8.6 does sound enticing.

I've got a BP4W swapped 91. So my compression is at 9.5:1. That's the reason I am looking around.

I'm just attempting to find a low compression option without buying forged pistons, but if it has to be, then so be it. Won't be my first nor last time lol.

Nevermind, signed up on a protege forum. They work well, hold up like Miata pistons do and drop the compression somewhere in the 8.3:1 neighborhood. DOHC swap is fairly common. So all I have to do is...
