Default Miata Turbo Build..done..semi-right.

Well, this is my brother's car.
i'm helping him build it.
He bought this miata for 750$ with a blown motor...the piston shattered and luckily did not scratch the cylinder wall...yep..cylinder #4..probably cooling issue.
we removed the engine and took it to get machined, hopefully getting it back in two days.
this si the car when we got it


when removing engine:


over the weekend, we got a little carried away on the "removing stuff we don't need" and ended up completely rmeoving:
dash board, carpet, a/c, heater core, and pretty much everything byt the wiring.
my brother getting ---- about cleaning...


end result as it sits on my driveway right now:


the brother helping disassemble the engine:
note*this is his first time ever playing with an engine...it bit him back and he bled ....bad!

we then proceeded to power wash away 15 years of dust and other disgusting matter form the engine bay and inside the car.

we are having fun and have big plans for the car.
we are on a budget but also want to do things right.
the plan is to go boost...no idea how yet, but we'll figure it out.
engine wise we are probably going with either weiseco or supertech pistons @ 9.5~:1CR, Eagle Rods, DIYPNP for management, rmeoving EVERYTHING that is not necessary to drive the car including a radio!, ARP headstuds, skunk2 throttle body(gotta convince him of this).
the car already has a good stage2 clutch by ACT, transmission is sound.

we have a lot to learn and believe me, we've been reading non-stop.
i know these types of forums and won't be asking stupid questions wihtout searching extensively before.
hope to get a lot of help from you guys!

by the way, the car is a '96 STO Miata on Montego Blue (faded color though)
i believe it has what appears as stock rims...they are getting changed.

i'll let my brother update you more on the looks of the car since i am not really interested in that

he currently drives a mlightly modded MS3 '12, i drive a completely stock MS3 '10 and i also own a heavily modded mazda protege MP3 '01 @ 14PSI with mods too long to list...

Update: 3/8/2013
Total money invested: 350$
Machine Shop did the following:
cut the head slightly..didn't have to cut too much becasue head wasn't warped or anything
seated the valves, overall cleaning...thing is beautiful
cleaned the block, .20 over bore and honing
cleaned the crank, .10 rod bearing, .10 crank bearings, polished.
this is AWESOMENESS
nothing else done to the block.
was advised not to replace the coolant seals...



project keeps moving foeward.

Update: 3-13-2013
interior starting to take shape. changed the carpet for a NB's black carpet.
it seems like convertible top won't drop it..minor modifications might have to be done


Update 3-16-2013
carpet in, seats in, painted metal pieces on top of the gas tank, they were all rust-free but wanted to future proof.
install convertible top.

carpet in, seats in, painted metal pieces on top of the gas tank, they were all rust-free but wanted to future proof.

[IMG][/IMG]

Latest
started building the engine

installed pistons, rods, oil squirters, crank shaft
all bearings were clevite
using lucas assembly oil FTW







original reason why the motor blew.





some updates











decided to paint manifold black





timed:


EGR block off plate done


coolant bypass block off plate done



the progress so far.















SS Braided Brake lines all around.

yes, i need rotors, aSAP






yes, had to..because the house makes a weird turn. so we measured and cut.

here is first start up:


as promised, the old rotors didn't last long...












did some more modifications. fixed the convertible top, and installed a break out strip for the gauges..i just wasn't happy with the way the wiring was done.
wired up fuel, coolant temp and other gauges.
car idles much better now and it no longer has the issue of not starting when hot.

we found out that the timing was off by like 1 tooth, so rmeoved timing belt and redid timing, set the timing to zero with stock ECU, wired in megasquirt and configured timing..car idles so much better now.

also wil be replacing the MAF with a IAT and installing a boost controller from DIYAutoTune.







more wiring than i'd like to see,,,wire tuck will be done prior to paint.

Looks good. I had a '97 that I put a JR M45 supercharger kit on, and it was a blast. Engine management (piggyback) was definitely the weak spot, so you're on the right path using the Megasquirt.

you def can't go wrong with a full management
yes, it will be harder to work with but once you are done...the possibilities are endless

currently i am tuning off of AFRs and MAP
i will be able to add meth inj and have it work off RPM/SPEED/BOOST/ anything!
will also be able to do flat shifting and launch control.
i can even to anti-lag
i cna control so many things like A/C, intercoler sprayer..man...it is gonna be awesome!

i cna even wire in a external waterpump and just remobve the one from the car...get rid of the thermostat altogether and only run the pump when i want to....

this is my brother's car..but soon, i will be going MS on my protege (pictured on my sig)

Wow you mofos work fast! Are you using a Haynes manual? If so, don't trust all their torque specs, especially if you're using aftermarket fasteners. For example, ARP head studs require higher torque spec than factory.

thought you guys deserved an update.
so here it is:

after 1 year and 2 motnhs...it finally starts

it's been a while since a last update

so far this is what it looked like before the car went under the knife for about 3 more times...


old old old


replacing bumpers and fenders


giving some life to otherwise boring parts....wrinkle paint valve cover


at this point i really thought to myself: i need to trim these wires


i attempted to make it look nice but those wires and fuse box...they had to go


so out comes the dash board, again


trimming, fixing, taping, rolling


cleaning ziptying etc


dash back on


still not happy tho


it doens't look that bad but it could be better




so out comes the dash again
and now the whole wiring harness comes out as well.
time for some trimming and soldering


the pile on the right is all unused wiring


take advnatage of the situation to install MSM pedals


this is the passenger side wiring harness..not much to do to this one


taking apart fuse box (tags: miata fuse block fuse box fuses relocation move dash)








took off all the leads


removed the airbag


getting ready for paint


finished fuse box relocation under dash


starting to lok better...could be better tho


wrinklepainted my old oil catch can and installed


driver side engine bay cleaner


dash back on, pedals installed, painted steering rack back on






bucket of wires...to be sorted and thrown out


first wash in 1 yr


the proof is in the pudding. drove the car to a friends house to show off



installing SSQV


installing EBC for the MSPNP2


venting it for now while i figur eout what to do


need to figure out an intake for this as well






that's all
