Tuner called me, gains made from 6500 to 7800/142whp. Lost 10ft lbs at 4600ish due to runner length and losing VICS. Oh well, did it for eventual turblow boosts.

Height no. But setup was Stance coils, Bbombs 15x7.5 et0 with 195/50 RE11 front, Kumho AST rear. It had a little reverse rake because the rears were threaded all the way down on all three collars. I never felt the need to remove one like most people did. Front got raised off the tire until I could not rub at full counter.

Fair enough, kinda figured it was a while ago. Looks like one of the lower tracked cars out there, not the standard 12/12.5" hub to fender. Very nice.

Very cool to see the blox manifold fitted by filling the holes and redrilling them. Never seen this method, good thinking.

Makes me wonder what else could be fit this way haha.

To be fair, I've since raised it a bit



It's level while static but with a passenger and me in it the rear squats quite a bit.

Old thread is old, just looked back through this. Boy have I learned a LOT over the last 2-3 years.

Dilly's makeover thread and Jess's prodding have inspired me to update this...

So the last update was from November of 2010. That winter I just cruised around with the new motor, put around 600 miles on it before spring of 2011 arrived. Loaded up some nice full syn Amsoil, sent the break-in oil off for analysis. That came back lookin good. So I figured it was ready to rip and started making plans for the year. TTE/D, NASA Instructor Clinic, etc...
I didnt have much time with this motor. It lost a thrust bearing around 1100 miles. I'm not really sure what happened. Tuning shop tried to blame my clutch, the same clutch that was in the car for 4+ years. In retrospect, I should have installed a clutch safety delete clip or w/e. I let the car sit on jack stands most of 2011 while I used the coilovers, sways, wheels and tires to win a local CSP season championship in a different car!
They no longer use the machine shop that did the work on that block anymore. So, they must have been having other issues in addition to my motor?
After a long back and forth, they made it right(enough) for me. I brought them a new crank and block, bought a new bearing set and they covered the labor and machine work on the rebuild. New machine shop was comfortable reusing the rods, pistons and head. Version 2.0 came home this spring(2012).



It sat in the garage with the occasional wd40 spritz down the plug hole until a few weeks ago.

So 2011 went like this:

Green car pretty much looked like this from April to October, AKA autocross season.




As I said earlier, I took my coils, sways and wheels off and my friend and I built a complete piece of shit. Seriously. Completely from craigslist and our own trash parts piles. $400 rolling shell, 2 different junkyard motors, stock million mile bushings, seized front calipers, cherry bomb/turndown exhaust, bad... Total cash outlay was FOR SURE under $1000 that year.

But it had good shit where it mattered, 700/400 eibachs on Stance coils, 15x9 6uls, 225 Toyo R1Rs, RB tubular front sway









We won 1st and 4th in the Buckeye Miata Clubs csp equivalent.

For 2012, I planned on getting my car going again so I needed my suspension and stuff back. We picked up good-enough replacements, TR 9"s, fresh 225 Kooks, Vmaxx xtreme track pack with the swaybar addon deal FM did, bushing kit, 949 endlinks, carbotech AX6 pads, 1.6 brake swap with super thin rotors, a MUFFLER etc.. All on top of clean 1.8 subframes and a Torsen! Aiming for an SCCA STRish build.

Which for 2012 looked like so:











I took home 1st again, My codriver missed 2 events but still tied for a trophy. For 2013 we plan on making the car SCCA legal and aiming for a regional STR trophy.

Thanks. To be honest, it's not perfect. The Honda piece has fuel injector bosses in the runner which had to be plugged and welded up, then ported back to profile on the interior. All of the Honda mounting flange holes are very close to the Mazda locations. None of them have cracked yet, but it is something I worry about with the stiffer motor mounts and these motors' known issues with harmonics.
A couple examples that I've seen of guys chopping both manifolds, the Honda piece above the fuel injectors and welding it the Mazda flange with some stub of runner left actually can lengthen the overall runner a tad. Which would be beneficial in my current situation. The more length you leave on the Mazda side, the harder it is to clean the weld or port match the interior, of course.

Tldr: I would trade it for a squaretop in a heartbeat.

I dont want this to start getting out of chronological order so here goes a 2012 recap,

Some time ago, in a garage far far away...

Once the autocross season wrapped up in the fall of 2011, we pulled all my parts off the black car. I was then able to get my car off the jackstands that it called home all year long.






It sat for a bit while I decided my next plan of action and negotiated with the tuning shop that built the last motor. Sometime that winter though I came across a craigslist ad for a full 2000 drivetrain. The guy had just picked up the car and was swapping in a camaro motor and cts diff. I got all the miata stuff for pennies, complete motorset, trans, 4.3 Torsen, ppf, ecu etc. I had the Torsen sold before I brought it home, the guy even paid for me to install it .
So here I was with a basically free 2000 motor. A few hundred in refreshing it and I might be able to drive the 2012 season!

So I got to work..

The 00' stuff came out of 80k car, but the car itself was worn out. Seat bolsters ripped, leather trashed, wheels rusting. Looked very poorly cared for, so I didnt have high hopes for the condition of this motor:


Turns out the head had been recently rebuilt and was pristine internally:


At this point I just started swapping all my accessories over and it went together really quick. The honda manifold, OBX header with a fresh re-wrap, Protege valvecover, DiY reroute with the Begi spacer and GM hose.






Once the motor was together, I just had to get the two in the same location..
The car was the easier half to transport, I was able to roll it down my driveway and right onto our trailer, and over to my buddies lift-equipped garage! Keep in mind it hasn't had a motor for nearly a year now...



The bay was a mess. ABS delete gone awry, please disregard the brake lines.

One thing I highly recommend doing that is easy preventative maintenance and an upgrade is repacking the front hub bearings. I just used some full synthetic parts store stuff on this pair, Green grease or something or other. I will be repacking 4 more as well, with amsoil. 2 for our autoX car and both the spares on the shelf. If they end up being noticeably better/smoother with the amsoil than these, I will swap em out.


http://waltermotorsports.com/v/Racing/hub/
This is the guide I used. It is very clear, great pictures. Read/walk yourself through one hub and the second will only take about 10 minutes.




Pretty cool results. This IS with pads installed, brakes bled, wheel tourqed etc. no tricks. I'm not sure you could give this a seconds/lap rating or whatever but it's a major reduction of friction. One can assume some mpg benefit as well.

So 2012 was pretty fun. I had earned my instructors license and TT license with NASA the summer before, and gotten one weekend under my belt with the instructing gig. I planned to dive in with the instructing side with NASA, continue in HPDE4 instead of making the jump to TTE or D (because of the motor issue) and make sure I won the Buckeye Miata Club championship. It was to be a good year.
I'll just make this a pic post, as most of these will be pretty self explanatory.

Early in the year we did a small Miataturbo.net meet:







Our black car was still waiting on the slowboat container of Flyin Miata Vmaxx Xtremes at this point so I drove the first autocross in my green car:







Then a weekend up at Mid Ohio with NASA:






Then I did a few midseason upgrades:

The second NASA event at Mid Ohio went great, my student that weekend was actually a buddy that flew in from his base on leave and rented an H4 civic for HPDE1. That was a major learning experience for me. Here was a guy I grew up with being dumb on the street in p.o.s. shitboxes through highschool, he comes home on break and decides he wants to play racecars with us for a weekend. He ended up calming down and actually got fairly quick by the end of Sunday!






Eventually I finished my hardtop window and went to another track weekend. This one was with SCCA though. It also happened to be the weekend before NASA Nationals. They were short some instructors for a PDX event so they contacted some of us NASA guys to help out.











I lost a "1" at some point?



The next weekend I did not drive for a few reasons, most notably was that I had found a buyer for the stock 99/00 motor currently in my car. The fact that Emilio and Tom from 949 were going to be there was a bonus. I just parked my car in their tent and slummed it with them most of Sunday on their way to PTC and TTC Championships and lap records.





This is the last picture of the car in running order last year taken on the way to go pull the 99 motor out

Can't forget the Dorifto!! This is where some of my build theme of "jack of all master of none" comes into play. This car is set up in some fantasy land where it performs very well in grip situations at autocross speeds and track speeds. It is very neutral, to the side of a smidge of understeer at the limit. But give it a flick or a little clutch kick and it drifts very very well. I just have to be mindful of which wheelset is on it. With the Secret Element inner tie rods, the 9" 6uls will mangle the tire on the lower control arm.

This was in August, while I was working on the hardtop template.







DAT ANGLE! DAT SQUAT!

Yea, still need a pretty major roll + pull up front. The .5" doesn't gain you much room over everybody running x8 et0. The RE-11s up front run wide as well, way wider than the crappy Kumhos on the rear. Basically no stretch up front.
I have a full set of the pixie dust Toyo R1R 195s sitting in the warehouse at work waiting. That will be an awesome street combo whenever I wear out the Bridgestones.

Default Offseason improvements

Like most of our projects, this thing is never done, good enough, or in once piece for long.
I stumbled across a 2002 Crystal Blue car last fall that had been totaled out by insurance. It was a very clean car with some crazy chassis tweaks to the RF corner. Never really found out what happened, but appeared that it either ran off the road into a deep ditch or jumped off a loading dock. There was no forward impact damage like you'd see if they hit something on the road. The RF corner of the car literally sat an inch or two higher the the rest. It had a sheared rf lower balljoint, pretzel'd lower control arm, bent front subframe, creases in the tranny tunnel and up the fire wall. Picked it up for $1800.







So we stripped it and cut it up. Motor and trans are going to a guy building an exocet, top sold. Made a few bucks and had some goodies left over to throw onto my car!



If you ever wondered what the cross section of the miata doorsill looked like...


Redneck miata patio furniture:

So this left me a pile of goodies and over the winter I obtained a few moar!
NB spindles/uprights and hubs to repack and throw ARP studs in. NB steering rack, which I depowered the real way. I was pretty bummed to realize my Secret Element inners don't work on the NB racks due to the size differences, but I will be transferring over the LE/R ends. I also picked up a pair of straight NB upper control arms and a good front subframe as well. ARPs came from Xcler8n's no longer needed stash of miata parts. Kenjo @ GarageStar put out those super ricey pulleys, had to pick those up for 2hp, as well as one of his JGTC style knobs. I picked up a second pair of Eibachs to finish my spring rate conversion on the Stances. A local guy sold me a Gates timing belt for pennies, so I ordered the "matching" water pump/alt belt and Delrin NB steering rack mounts from Bill @ MiataRoadster. I was racking up some major ricer points.
I have been wanting to fix my brake lines and my built motor had been waiting to go back in as well... I haz some work to do!

Default Hub Re-Packing

Ryan (33oh) was selling a certain set of 13s that I decided I had to have. They will not fit my green car because of the sport brakes so I will be on the lookout for a used set of 255/40/13 HoHos and will run em on the dedicated autocross car. We picked up a clean(er) NA shell without a title somewhere along the lines so our black racecar will be converted back to a stockish 1.6 black&tan street car and sold in the spring. The new shell will get all the goodies from the black car and these bad boys for 2013:

Default Re: Doward's Jack of all, Master of None Build

Last piece of the puzzle came in a couple weeks ago:



Got the engine all assembled, suspension rebuilt, ready for brake lines, engine and trans.







That pretty much brings the thread current!

Got started on re-plumbing the brake lines tonight. Got all the old lines removed, abs master removed, NB non-abs master in, new bracket for the Wilwood prop valve fabbed and painted. Also wired in a jumper for clutch safety switch delete. Contemplating tucking the rest of the engine bay harness. There's still a lot of junk wiring in there; cruise, ac, airbags, blah.
