Re: What's a good stock turbo for mild boost 5 psi?

Add $100 subie td04 to the mix, as a 1.6 favourite
unmatched amount of info/detail on turbo (or superdharged) miata forums.
I guess we should hide the ectremely valuable info then

Re: What's a good stock turbo for mild boost 5 psi?

ford 2.3 sohc T3, mitsubishi eclipse 14b(5 spd) or sr20 T25 would be your most popular platforms. CA18 even better with its 0.48 rear housing (=quicker spool) Forums may b best bet. Some even happy with their cheap chinese turbos Tones of ideas on miata forums, since they've been turboing their simi...

Re: The best 4-AC upgrades...

Some honda tuners choose sohc heads for legitimate reasons. Less mechanical parts, popular for boosted still 4 valves per cylinder tho.... so totally irrelevant vs a 2 valve 4AC. That analogy no good. http://www.rollaclub.com/board/topic/7580-ajps-ae71-daily-turned-track-slider/page__st__15 as simp...

Re: The best 4-AC upgrades...

best bang for the buck 4AC probably a draw thru turbo. You'll have to do your homework, but its not that complicated. Drawthru 2 valve motors can be beasts. Period Look what a 'stock' 2TC (also 1.6L) does. HUGE improvement in performance.... would kill most 4AGs http://www.3tcgarage.com/viewtopic.ph...

Re: We're back. Want to help talk some sense into me? f20c

or maybe hang a t28 or t3 turbo from a stock 4age, plus a plug n play megasquirt from DIY with a "good tune". Drive it with sense for now (if ya can restrain yourself), and worry about a W gearbox later. A well tuned 4agte can range from 'silly quick to monster', and can do it relatively &...

Re: Megan 1.85 lowering springs?

hmmmm... perhaps its the different angle of the photos. Fronts still look almost the same, certainly not almost 2" lower. Red coupe 'stock height' looks like a 4x4 in the rear. My AEs must've all "settled" :) Interest in the thread because I'm gonna get & cut some M2s... like a fe...

Re: AE86 with A/C...

yes, 'most unusual' is exactly what I'm saying. I've never met another rwd rolla owner who did the same to their ac. ....and yes, I'd label the "stock" ac as barely adequate also. ...and yes, I am slim, but hardly bothered by temperature swings as much as "the average guy". Whene...

Re: AE86 with A/C...

i think the engineers did a very good job with the ac system, sizing the components. Mine would freeze your az off... with a little tweaking. Definitely a fan on the condensor helped for traffic stop & go. A friend turned a little trim pot on the pc board, in the little ac control box (amplifier...

Re: Megan 1.85 lowering springs?
