We need to see some pictures of the cars undergoing transformations. I know Joel Harlemen posted that he might dropping a big engine into his Fiero. Some progress pictures of these kind of projects would be really cool.
Ok, here it is. I'm switching my miata from sts2 to DP! It's been fun so far :]
Some of the changes:
Weight reduction, to get the car down to about 1850 pounds w/o driver (close to min weight)
Engine work: Mild head porting and polishing, raised compression to 10.5:1 (vs 8.5:1)
New exhaust and header
Custom short Intake
Aluminum flywheel and new clutch
Go to 850/500 spring rates, rebuild my konis
New RB front swaybar.
9 pound a piece 3piece racing wheels 13x10
R35 compound 9" wide and 10" wide hoosier bias ply slicks
Those are the basics. I plan to have a lot of fun next season and learn to drive a faster car.
My brother is putting on a 200whp turbo in what used to be an sts2 miata (the red one white white stripes).
That's all for me, nothing major..... right?
