Good news- intercooler is almost finished and im really liking how short the piping is gonna be. The turblown manifold puts the turbo so far forward that it'll connect directly to the intercooler on the other side without even needing piping in between.



The greddy elbow was cut and rewelded to line up better with the intercooler outlet. Its not gonna be a perfectly straight shot as i would have liked, but the curve will be minimal.



Aside from that, a whole grip of plumbing went down.
-10 turbo drain:



-10 through to both oil coolers. They are set up in a sequential setup, rather than parallel, but before you get your armchair engineer jimmiez in a bunch, i went this route for 2 reasons: A) being the fact that you need way more lines, fittings, and -10 T's cost a fuqload. Reason B) being the science of course says parallel is better because you're maximizing the efficiency of the coolers by splitting the oil but the fact remains - I havent seen any 7 owner claim that switching from sequential to parallel has made a SIGNIFICANT difference. No one. So for the sake of simplicity, here i am





The ps pump got some work too. High-pressure fitting to the rack done.



instead of the line cutting across the engine bay and getting tangled in the oil lines and everything else on the right side of the motor, i did something cleaner:





and heres how its sitting (still). I really dont wanna get my hopes up, but as of right now the car looks like its on track to be done at the shop in february and ready to come back home for me to finish up the final bits of work.



Extra-curricular activities consisted of fixing broken stuff on the miata i got sick of dealing with



and spent too much effort making this house for my car who doesnt even appreciate it. tite

G e t t i n t h e r e



Wiggins clamps will be getting welded on shortly. Hose clamps are for jabroniesss



Radiator is set up as a dual pass. The small square holes are an idea my fabricator had. They will be covered with these thin rubber flap things that stay shut at low speeds, but open at higher speed for better air flow.



This isnt the filter im using, but it will be set up like this. From what ive seen, placing it out of the engine bay like this makes quite a difference in power and IATs.



Turns out driveshaft u joints dont like being neglected. It managed to grenade the tailshaft of the miatas transmission during the 2 hour drive back from my girls house, so now im stuck with no car and $700+ spent on new parts to fix everything. Cant really blame the little car though, it was my own fault for being lazy.

Still waiting on it to be finished....its a real drag. It should be getting the exhaust made right now, which is the last major thing left. He did send me this picture tho, which got my jimmiez tight



Hoping i have more update before i decide to abort this entire build and get on with my life.

**** that looks awesome! It's sucks losing motivation but you're so close and it will be amazing once it's done. What's left to do once you get it home?
