    runs pretty smoothly. I need to get the suspension all torqued to spec, front tires and an alignment.Then I can work on making the car look pretty.

    Took it for a little test drive today, Definately more power than when it was N/A but I took it real easy on it and I need to adjust the slack out of the throttle cable still. No exhaust shops seem to be open till monday so I guess I'll take care of the exhaust then. Have a few drive abilitty issuse to chase down but honestly I am suprised at the smoothness.

    I think one of my dust shields got bent and is dragging on the rotor, so hopefully tomorrow I can fix that and I may take a short video, I dont want to push my luck or neighbors patience with the open dump lol.

    It's been a fun learning expirence. I've been working on cara for ten years now, but this is really the first time I've been able to do everything I've really wanted to.

    After I get the exhaust on and suspension aligned I'm gonna focus on driving it lol.

    Futurish plans, polish and wax, clean and assemble interior.

    Get my Neuman Adio equipment installed.

    Work on completing my 5 lug conversion.

    Long term goal is to find a better condition body, 2dr, 4dr hatch or wagon!

    Yeah boundary engineering oil pump is in the plans. Have some unfortunate news though. Something got in the compressor and chewed up the fins. Still makes decent power but I'll be installIng a vf11 soon.

    Yes sir,
    below is the damage.
    :(

    My main goal is to have this car running and driving nicely for now. I need it so that I can take down the Gtx and do some maintance and other work to it. After that I think I'll grab some rx7 450cc or 550cc's and throw the Gtr turbo on with low boost.

    Current plans are as follows.

    Have my spare block built with my forged m-tuned rods w/ arp bolts, planning on running 10:1 forged wiseco pistons, Arp main and head studs, Adapting a sheet metal intake and its larger throttle body and a boundary engineering oil pump.

    For now I am going to run my gtr exhaust mani and externally gated gtr turbo with full stainless exhasust from the turbo back. probably going to run it at around 24psi with meth injection and around 14psi with out.

    Working on my megaquirt II install as well.

    Oh yah, last part of the puzzle. I just bought a BP4W head off the miata guys, woohoo. I've heard they flow significantly better than any ported bp05 head can.
