Can't wait to see your take on the Jetstream lights output since it seems most of the recessed headlight kits for the miata do not have all that great light output, either way they are perdy.

Glad to see you are still enjoying the Skunk2 knob, it simply clashed with the rest of my interior, imo. :kitty:

Yeah I'll probably get those in tomorrow. So I can enjoy them all day. Yeah after looking at the picture in their group buy for the output it looks adequate for me, especially since I have my old lights back in, can't even tell they are on sometimes.

The skunk knob is awesome, it definitely went to a great home, gonna need to get carpet soon for sure, I need my interior to look less like it does haha

All I know is, the 1.6 route seems less and less likely everyday.


Yeah I hear ya, I love the 1.6 for what it is, and it has decent miles on it. It does exactly what it needs to do, and a riot around town. It's only gonna get crazier cause the end goal is sr20det since the stock bottom end will outperform the BP anyways haha that is just noooo time soon of course.


Unless you convince me otherwise to keep the 1.6..............

I've just seen so few turbo parts that are reasonably priced for them. The 1.8 stuff just seems that much cheaper overall. I can't remember what manifold and DP you went with, but I've seen crazy expensive ARTech stuff out there for sale, and not much else.

SR20 seems too expensive unless someone stateside makes a kit for less than the aussi's.

Keep the 1.6 if for any reason but to be different...I mean if you don't build it the motor is cheap as dirt anyways... Revs nice and quick and you are the underdog who doesn't like being the underdog?

My turbo stuff is ARTech AC and ps compatible.... Probably gonna keep this manifold for a while, keeps up with what I need it to be, but like you said not much else out there.

The sr20 I just have had a hard on for a while. Like they just make good power for nothing, motors are more expensive but don't expect that to blow as easily, people destroy those things and they just keep coming back for more.

Hahah I wanted a reliable DD for a while and it was either a MS3 or a Subaru wrx so I decided to keep it all Mazda.

This car shall not see track duty that is for sure but would be fun.

crazyblackman's thread of shit

postby Crazyblackman » 09/19/15 @ 23:40

So finally went out to put the Jetstream lights in.

Started with the bumper on and took the old lights out. Once all the old lights and such was taken out I got out the blue tape and the sharpie ready to go.

image

They give you a little thing to trace out and cut. I think either I was doing it wrong but it didn't seem to go as far as it ended up needing to go.

image

Obviously the instructions are in Japanese so idk what the hell im looking at.

But I did figure out through trial and error that their are 2 of these in different sizes image

With the lights they needed a little bit of space for the screws to go in. So I just did it for 2 centimeters and traced another line.
image

Then i measured like 4 times and finally decided to cut. This piece got in the way so I had to take that off. Few screws and we are good.
image

image

After under cutting and measuring like 5 times then shaving it down with my dremel and fittings to make it smooth. Finally got it placed in snug.
image
image

image
I didn't put the screws in just waited cause the bumper was taken off to do the cutting and shaving

Started on the other side and it went a lot quicker!
image
Same old same old then I tried to put them down and ready to screw in, it wasn't to my liking so I took them out like 4 times shaved more and finally got them to sit flush. I had to cut part of the bumper support too cause it was in the way.
image
On both sides, took a while but got them out.
Then put them in and screwed them down!!
image
image
image

I have more pictures just gotta get them off the camera.

I won't be, the plan is to remove the turn signals all together, let those be for my airflow to the philter and engine.

Then get the rocketbunny turn signals drill some holes and get those in the bumper. I have always liked those little things, so i figured why not, I think it will look pretty good.

So I put some h4 lights today to see the output a little bit. They seem no worse off then before... I will test it later tonight when actually dark out too just to see the spread.

So I'll just darken up the garage for later then see how dark it is.

The lights also have turn signal lights within. So I could dump my turn signals meow for air, but I have other plans in mind for turn signals.

So I got some goods in the mail.

I have been working with Alex at speedworksgarage to get a valve cover that will look and do what I need it to do. He also got me some other stuff too that I needed for my valve cover, cam gears, and water pump pulley.

The valve cover has A AN fitting welded on, and another, one so plug in as well for my catch can setup that I need to put in. Also has flush mounted hardware for the looks, and got it made in this awesome color.

I'm really happy how it came out and can't wait to get it on there. Thanks again Alex!

I also bought a used Fab9 Cop kit too.
I will be happy to get that in there too soon.

Need to get on it. Also need to buy more stuff next weekend to keep this thing going until then!

The Rs3's vs my beat star specs

The stock tire that I had to put in due to a hole in 1 prior tire
image

Probably could use a 5 mm spacer just to fully fill it out but don't know, maybe selling these flares and doing something completely custom. Not sure yet, but I'm leaning heavily towards custom.
image

Leaning towards something similar to this image

But only time will tell.

Well then I have been busy selling, and buying stuff recently, after talking with Bryan at Fab9tuning who might I add has been a awesome guy to deal with. Asked him all kinds of questions about the next steps in this build process and he let me know everything I needed to know.

Things I have ordered or are about to order from Fab9Tuning
-Obviously Manley Rods
-Wiseco Forged Piston 78.5mm/8:5:1
-Another Oil Pan Gasket kit
-Going to get a new Oil Pump (unsure of which to get) but ordering today
-Wanted ACL Race bearings, but since they are always out, getting KING XP Race bearings today as well

Things I still need to get/Do
-Gaskets for days, new head gasket, new crank seal, new rear main seal.
Even though I already did all of that stuff in the past like 3000 miles, I just want to be safe and not have any issues
-Need to install COPs
-Need to install new Valve Cover
-Need to install new flares (once completed)
-Need to get head and block machined and such
-Need to swap my open dif for my worsen
-Need to rewire my interior
-Need interior in general
-Need to do a mild engine bay tuck
-Need to get engine bay painted
-Need to get dif seals
-Need to get axels for the new dif
-Probably some random stuff

Lots to do, I want to set a deadline on this, but know it's just going to be unrealistic, so once it gets done it gets done.

I still would like to attempt to build my own engine to an extent but we will see how it goes. I will be doing a lot of research on this, as well as a lot of research on the wiring I want to do so we will see how it all turns out.

Will have pictures once I get everything but for meow grabbing all this stuff is the priority

I am planning on pulling the motor this weekend, and pulling the dash as well to get access to all the wiring. Will dump some stuff, not really concerned about weight here but stuff I don't really need will go.

So went out today didn't do the engine first, instead I took the dash out.

Took a couple hours but got it, then just drained the fluid will pull the motor tomorrow.
image

This looked filthy so gotta clean that up then should be OK to start cutting stuff out.
image

image
image
image

Left if like this till tomorrow.

I would like to have the motor disassembled tomorrow but we will see.

Alright so finally can update this after the last update the next day went out got the motor pulled.

Took some of it apart the next day but had to look at wedding Venues that night.

Then debated what I wanted to do engine wise. Goal is 300whp I don't need anything crazy I just want to scoot that's all.

Got my oil pump from Fab9tuning the other day.
image

Waiting on one look good item that I just had to have. But I would like the valve train to be pretty solid so less to worry about up top too. Need to look that stuff up, opinions are welcome on that.


Out the motor comes again. I didn't realize it was gonna be a little bit longer getting the motor or this time with all the turbo stuff in the way.
image

The pressure plate, clutch. And flywheel look pretty decent.
image

image

image

Got the cams out, and organized the other pieces so I don't miss place them.
image

Got the head bolts loose and took the head off, took the crank sprocket and pulley off, water pump off and oil pan off I did this after work today, with my hour of spare time.
image

This is how it sits currently.
image

image

Will try and break the block down sometime this week. Then find a suitable shop to take on the work, slow and steady this time.

Once those are off I'll focus more on the wiring side of things.

That's it for meow.

Went out tonight to get some stuff done.

Pulled the rest of the motor apart and looked at things realizing this is my first real look at my own engine.

image
image

All the bearings look exactly the same which was a good feeling.
image

image

Got the crank out with no issues, everything looked good on that we'll, no uneven wear
image

image

Got all the oil squirters out and got the pistons and rods out. Walls appear to be good as well.
image

image
image

meow just need to find some money to gather the additional stuff.

So I guess I didn't update this, I got the new cam gears from Bogaut.

Absolutely love them!!!
image

Trying to sell stuff currently as well. Deciding if I'm keeping ac or not. I have ac in the speed so I don't really need it currently. So debating debating.

Still waiting currently to get some spare cash to send the block off if not this next paycheck then the following one.

Still need to buy additional stuff for the head work as well thanks again Evan for help with that stuff.

I'm stoked you picked up the HKS cam gears. They'll look phantastic with the capri valve cover.

Those headlights are amazing as well. The FC 'look' is to die for. @Hellabeefy said my headlights suck, so I'll figure out a solution someday.

The progress has been wonderphil to phollow. Can't wait to see you in February!!!

IDK how I didn't see this forever ago. Appreciate it bud, yeah I still love the headlights a lot, only got to use them a handful of times before I started the tear down again.

Yeah I think it will bring some POP to the engine bay itself once I put my gray and black valve cover on there. Im excited as hell about it all coming together, just getting my bills straight first then getting the machine work started.
