    Finally after many months of hardwork and saving and putting my goals behind to pay for priorities I bought my Garrett GTX2867R dual ball bearing turbo today. Pictures are in my albums. Today was a great day.

    ja ja I received this bad boy last week, already making adjustments to fit it. EDIT: I have very little time for personal projects now. Enjoy the pics

    Wow that manifold is the business, Eli! I found the site but is the 1.8 intake shown referring to a miata intake that you know of?

    If you wouldn't mind sharing what it cost you, shoot me a pm.

    .. it costs money to go fast ja ja but this is what this build thread is all about. I will pm you Armando's contact info (Gato Performance, you may get a better price since I believe since he already has the dimensions for the BP motor.

    That inlet manifold looks pretty cool! What's the performance benefits?

    Great question: the NB02 consists of an upper and lower plenum intake manifold with too many holes for EGR valve, butterflies and vacuum lines, for my build I want a simpler set up, the Hydra ECU doesn't need the VITCS or any of that crap.

    I have very little time in my life for my build now.


    Project Update:

    I installed the Gato Performance intake manifold, and everthing related in order to speed up the installation process when I put the engine together. Temporarily removed everything until I get the cyilinder head back from the machine shop.
    Here are some pics of the Gato intake manifold on the car.

    Purchased the AWR motor mounts, powdercoated the GATO intake manifold and ceramic coated in black the tubular exhaust manifold and downpipe. I have a lot of work on the upcoming weeks. Can't wait to put the engine together.

    Thanks my friend, as you can see I am building my dream engine setup which will eventually become reality. It takes time and money to go beyond the average build
    I am doing this car with the intention to enjoy itregardless how old is becoming. My next mod and possibly last will be upgrading to a World class gear box with the QuickTime bellhousing and D585 LX or LS3 coils from Flyin Miata .

    I wont stop until the car is done but I dont have enough time now with my present employment. It will take some weeks to assemble the engine together. I cant wait to hear the engine start again. Thanks for looking at this thread

    Usually when people build their (miata) engines, they leave almost all of the valvetrain and cylinder head stock. Why did you decide to port, polish and upgrade the valvetrain? What's your horsepower target?

    Sorry for the multiple questions, it's just that I hear from many sources that it's not worth the effort and money. To be honest, if I was building an engine, and could afford it, I would do what you are doing. =D

    Hello Rustat

    I used to think rebuilding the cylinder is not worth the effort but after speaking to many of my old skool friends and some experts it is actually quite the opposite. Building the cylinder is where most of the power is made through out the powerband, reaching peak power with the aftermarket camshafts. The rest is a combination of airflow and lighter better quality parts that will improve engine performance to its limit.

    I am not set to any power goals yet. I am more focused now on putting everything back together to then worry about tuning. Thanks for following my thread.

    Eli

    Well yesterday was my only day off and I took every minute I could to install the cylinder head. I DID! but the rain delayed me on many ocassions, I couldn't install the motor mounts. I will work hard to complete the installation next Tuesday. My son (who is now 13 years old) helped, that was awesome and cool.

    I spent quite a bit cleaning the shortblock I used a nylon wiring wheel I purchased from Sears, then cleaned everything including the ARP hardware. It was a long process, still need to install the timing belt.

    EDIT, forget the rusty timing belt pulleys. they will also be replaced too.
