Did I miss what you did about a bypass valve? This is awesome. You should make and sell brackets/outlet manifolds to all of us with the weaksauce m45 kit

The bypass is the m45 actuator mated to the built in one on the blower. Just needed to make a few simple brackets to do so. No plans to make more. Between school, my cars and stuff with 949 racing I don't have time for it.

And as asked for a pic of the ic without the cover.

Already in. Only needed to do fronts which takes no time at all considering that once the wheel is off there are only 3 bolts to remove.

Glad you enjoyed it. I pulled a 44.61 with you in the car.

The night at adams was meh. Nemesis was there. ie the current record holder.



I matched my best time there with a 44.52 while I was bedding in the brakes. With the increase in boost by 4psi from the last time I was there the car was nuts. If all had gone well I could have made it possibly into the 43 later that night. However, my luck wasn't that good. At the end of the first session the motor shut off as I passed the finish line and didn't not want to start again. After like 20 min it decided to live again randomly and since I didn't know what the problem was I decided to just drive it home.

So i learned something interesting about the blower that i am currently using in the miata. Buick used 2 generations of the blower and i originally looked for the later one. I was able to verify that the blower i picked up was actually the earlier one that didnt belong on that car, the gen 2 m62. For the gen 3 m62 the rotors were coated and the inlet diameter increased from 2.5 in to 3. Despite being underdriven with a 72mm pulley vs the gen 2 65mm, the gen 3 blower made 20 more horsepower on the buick. I now have a gen 3 and i cant wait to see the increase i get.

Seems like the ecu came loose which is why it dried. One of the megasquirt screws disappeared which made it not so connected anymore.

Been pretty busy and the only progress is the new sticker above. I worked as a mechanic for 949 Racing during the 25 Hours of Thuderhill Race and wow was it hectic. One of the cars, Crusher, won first place in its class and was 9th overall out of 70 cars. Aside from changing all 4 tires and pads when needed there were a ton of mechanical issues with each of the 4 cars.

Nemo aka Problem Child:


Diff Failure

Kool Aid man resulting in an undressed motor and trans swap in less then 2 hours

Rad fan disintegrated and punctured radiator. Sent out with new rad and fan

New motor pronounced dead due to overheating. Compression was 130-80-80-110

Nemo left to sit and not finish


Crusher aka P1 in E1!!!!!!!


Alternator tensioner disappeared throwing belt. Lucky no overheat

Shifter turret? was doing something else at the time so dont know what that was all about


Kitty:


Front right brake caliper fell off and owned the wheel. When swapping on a new one I couldnt figure out why the rotor wouldnt seat. Turns out I was handed a non sport caliper to put on sport brakes

Right rear hub failure.

Diff problems, but Gordon was told to deal with it and keep driving

Custom whistler exhaust tip. Not sure who fixed it but saw the end result.


Super:

Super was a champ other than the front subframe cracking around the upper control arm. Maybe result of contact?

There are probably other things I forgot about or dont know about or want to recall. Now that it is all over time to get going on the several projects I have planned for my car.

New motor hopefully going in this weekend.

NA Block:

Bored out to 1.9+
GTX Rods
OE Replacement Pistons

99 Head:

Supertech Oversized Valves
Mazdaspeed Miata Intake Cam
Gutted Intake Manifold.



Here are the pics of the gutted manifold (left) next to a stock one. I have seen dynos of this helping a lot with top end power.

New engine is in and running like a champ. While pulling out the old motor I found a lot of interesting things which in order were:

Radiator was missing a lot of coolant and resivor dry.
Intercooler had a hole in it near a sensor I put in
Front main leaking
Only one motor mount bolted in. Other nut peaced out
Missing coolant possibly found, in the exhaust port of #1...
Rear main leaking

Anyways some pics







Raiding the old motor for parts



Engine out





Engine completed. Decided to break in the motor naturally aspirated to get rid of the temptation to full throttle.

This is the only link I have with empirical data. There is a decent amount of threads on miata turbo. Some say it helps, some say it doesnt. I will just go with the one with actual data.

It would probably not be worth it on a 95. First it is one piece instead of 2 like the 99. Also I saw a picture of one cut open and it didn't really look like there was much room for improvement.

True. I'll just cut the flange off and mate it to a honda im or something. I need to figure out something to do with this thing.

Mating it to the skunk2 honda manifold seems to be a good choice. I thought about going that route but decided to go the easier route for now even though the Honda would probably make more power.

Love the amount of DIY in there.

Also nice to see the protege valve cover along with the plastic belt cover, not all use it but looks quite nice.
Any troubles fabbing up a bracket to hold the COPs ?

Were any modifications needed to fit the protege vc to the 99 head? I was under the impression that those valve covers only fit on the 94-97 heads, something to do with the CAS positioning....

Btw great build!

Thanks for the comments. I am pretty pleased with the came cover too. Wasn't sure how it would turn out since I have never seen anyone use it on a Miata. To make the plastic fit I did have to cut a hole for the water neck to fit through on both the plastic and the metal plate it bolts to.

I actually was able to reuse the bracket I made for the original valve cover. I just had to rotate the cops since the connectors hit the cover and make a new way to hold them down.

The protege valve cover bolts to the 99 head just fine. Reason people say you can not use it is is the 99 has a cam sensor for the intake camgear that bolts to the face of the valve cover. I am using the original na cas so that is not an issue.
