Why did you decide to switch from 6ULs? or this is a daily-driver set?

The rpf1s will be my daily set while the 6uls track/autox/fun tires

The fitment isnt the best, but for the price it cant be beaten. It will fit very nicely with hood pins, something in the near future for my hood. Without the shipping costs it would be a sweet deal.

Just as long as it's gone. Otherwise, prepare yourself for relentless ridicule not only from me, but from everybody else who knows anything about anything (i.e. not mackniler)

323 gtx


Is that a stock GTX manifold? 323 GTX with stock manifold doesn't fit in a miata IIRC, also, you said it was 1.9. Stroked 1.8 GTX?

I'm kinda confused here. The GTX, as built by Mazda, was a 1.6, not a 1.8. So the block couldn't have come from one of those. Unless it was really bored out (which I thought was impossible, the 1.6 already being basically the max bore size for the block, hence the longer 1.8 block) or stroked or something, I don't know how they got 1.9L out of a GTX block.

Edit: Interesting. Wikipedia has now educated me as to the existence of JDM goodness 1.8 turbo engines. I retract my previous statement. But as a general disclaimer, usually I couldn't give a fuck less about jdm stuffs, so nobody should expect me to know about that stuff.
