She's home!

Now time for interior, sound deadening, clubsport spec wiring, etc. Time to get rowdy!

My fabricator and I came to an agreement and essentially we had to halt the production of my other car so that both of our businesses could grow more effectively. So, I cleared the car out of his shop and jump-started my *** to cleaning up my house/garage full of miscellaneous parts for Integra, Civic, and Rx7.



I'm in the business of chassis setup and engine calibration now, so here's one of the cars I setup this weekend. Ryan Raduechel's 88mm Chinese Turbo 5.3L LM7 Truck Motor crammed into a 1st Gen Miata. That turbo really gives up over 6.5k where the excessive backpressure is apparent. You get what you pay for on these turbos... $500 turbo and 720whp/700wtq is pretty sick though. I left timing pretty conservative and let her eat. As you can tell, it's buttery smooth (no correction factor either) and the cam to injection firing angle tuning, coil tuning, fueling, etc are all dead on to where I want them now.



Ohh, and I also managed to get my first Visio Professional Wiring diagram together in a couple hours. This is going to be for the ECU to Engine Bay of my 1st Gen Mazda Rx7. The body harnesses are also changing, and there's also another portion of the ECU harness that goes center of car and rearward of car. This is just firewall bulkhead to engine stuff.

Thatís awesome that you get to get paid for doing something you have so much passion for. Good luck but I doubt you will be needing it seeing how much work you put into it though it never hurts.

Thank you Sir. It's always appreciated. This build needs to come to fruition soon, so I'm throwing everything into it. No corners cut, no bullshit, just hard work and an insane amount of hours.

Been following this thread for a while figured i would chime in absolutely stellar work is going into this car mate

the network cable is a good use for sensors too !

i took at look at your videos about using the standard FD butterflies; as most people tend to remove them - i'm of the belief that mazda would of spent ages working on these things. Plus you can see their devotion when you take apart an RX8 inlet manifold and how complex that is for the runner lengths etc.. I'm lucky to have found a tuner and a mechanic whom agree as they have worked on mercs where the runner lengths matter and how much volume is sent as the revs go up.

We have been experimenting with the standard FD solenoid, an air tank, drive by wire throttle (rx8), electric pedal sensor all running off a LINK ecu Fury G4+
already it appears to assist with the cold start (quite an issue with pure e85)
hoping it will provide more torque lower in the rev range
increase drive-ability

Soon to be testing all this on the dyno

im wondering if you had any tests of your own? or threads you can share?

Beautiful work and thank you for the kind words.

Did you get a chance to see the videos of me explaining the theories behind it all? It should work better in practice on a rotary than an inline-4, which I based my vacuum pod/solenoid equipment from (H23A VTEC motor to be exact). Not sure if you were ever a Honda guy, but the large crossover induction noise that people commonly refer to as VTEC KICKIN IN, is actually these "IABs (Intake Air Bypass) which dumps open around 250-400 RPM before VTEC crossover.

I'm leaving my main job here in California and focusing on building a new race motor for my daily driver (1992 Honda Civic EG Hatchback). Once that's completed, I'm picking up an ABCD Harness from Emtron and wiring the car up. The final fabrication is going to have to wait until the interior, electrical, and plumbing is dialed. That's where I'll focus the rest of my year.

Cheers mate,

-Ryan

Drift Knuckles Taken Off

Custom Ball Joints still on the car

Mazdaspeed MS-02s are staying. I was almost ready to sell them and said, "**** it, I'll make the money elsewhere."

ARP Extended Studs

ABS Tone Rings

ABS Sensor and ABS Knuckle


Oh yeah, so now I'm going to set up traction control on the Emtron KV8 ECU. Debating now on picking up the ECUMaster PMU16 to replace my factory fusebox too... Already ***** deep, what's the worst that can happen?
