Woohoo! The parts I have been waiting on should ship this week. And it looks like that paint job might happen too! Feeling pumped!

Update time...

For those not on Facebook, the replacement donor motor had some signs of bad news so we decided to do a tear-down and validate no serious issues. Then the "Might as wells" got the best of me and decided to investigate doing a built bottom. So now in addition to the head work the bottom is going to get some love from Dezod in NY.

1) Molnar Tech connecting rods
2) Wiseco +.5mm overbore pistons
3) ACL Race bearing set
4) Toyota rear main seal
5) ARP main studs

Shipping out tomorrow...

I decided to spring for Wiseco (over Ross) pistons in my 3000 GT build.

The engine is or is nearly done. Late spring or early summer I will take the car to NY to have the engine swapped and then tuned.

You have a head start on me but I suspect we will both be on the road around the same time. I will be taking mine back to Enhanced Street Preformance in Sterling, Ma to get a new tune.

This new motor setup has me revisiting the turbo mr2 trans swap...

you haven't... but you are working to push the limits... he was playing off my weakest link quote.

I'm surprised one of the Miata tuners hasn't gone boom, they have done almost zip re beefing internals but they are not as aggressive in their tuning. Many have started with higher mile, unknown internals

we do have Subaru tuners that pushed it and went boom, just not on our course :wink:
