    13/04/1300 Mazda 626 Turbo

    Yep. Nah.

    Haven't read the rules yet. Have now.

    Didn't plan on winning the auction for this. Went $85 over my limit, so yes I did.

    Wouldn't have a clue how to modify it. Getting there.

    Have $814.99 to spend on it. Have $18.5 to spend on it.

    Have more responsible things I should be doing with my money. nothing better to do with my money

    Have more responsible things I should be doing with my time. nothing better to do with my time

    Won't get anything back for it.

    Better run a fucking 13.999sec quarter by the time it's done.

    Fuck you PF and your stuipd challenges! awesome challenges!







    Apparently: starts & runs, 1 owner since new, 264k kms & recently de-registered.
    Hopefully I get to pick it up this weekend. Hopefully it is in bad enough condition that I don't feel guilty ripping it to bits.

          Preliminary plan:

          car---------------------------------------------------------------------- 485
          larger intercooler---------------------------------------------------- 50
          upgraded intercooler plumbing, silicon & hose clamps------- 50
          3" dump pipe w/ bypass to atmosphere------------------------ 50
          larger turbo----------------------------------------------------------- 100
          misc. turbo fittings--------------------------------------------------- 50
          fuel controller--------------------------------------------------------- 70
          injectors or adjustable FPR---------------------------------------- 80
          larger fuel pump----------------------------------------------------- 80
          clutch------------------------------------------------------------------- 200
          total-------------------------------------------------------- 1215

          If I'm smart I'll do the mods in stages and combined with hopefully 100kg weight reduction maybe not all mods will be required (highly doubt it).

            i have an assuming larger than standard intercooler you can take with all associated piping (not that it will be any use but i dont want the shit) for free...

            its factory jzz30 soarer gear to give you a reference size... side mount gayness but might suit in some way shape or form to turn into a top mount... who knows... you have a welder and cutting diskst to make it into what you want and its free...

              sweet, should be a good one. take every single thing out of it. keep the driver's seat only. should drop a fair bit of weight.

                yeah man! i'll take it. pls pm me some pick up details and your favourite beer/spirit and i'll give you a 6 pack for it if that isn't too stingy.

                i'm assuming it has aluminium (not plastic) end tanks?

                  no need for anything for it... free is free...
                  will send you address for pickup though...

                  i think it has alloy end tanks but tbh i havent looked at it for years and its been in a box in my shed doing nothing... looked to be reasonable condition though lol

                    jzz30 factory side mount intercooler from ga70tt (thanks). might look at welding two of these in parallel if i can find another.

                      turbo looks twinscroll/entry, how are you going to make that work?

                        i might try and create a 'knife edge' on the transition piece i'll fab up between factory manifold and rx7 turbo

                          finally she's in my shed!



                          this too!



                          some features:
                          the sunroof that never seals


                          adjustable suspension


                          mother flipping ants


                          got to get a road worthy before i can get too crazy, but i will try and do as much weight reduction that i think i can get away with before then

                          steel upper radiator support brackets swapped out with aluminium ones (weight saving 0.2g)


                          cruise control unit removed


                          unwanted crap removed from accelerator pedal
                          before

                          after


                          'the pile'. once it starts getting large i'll start weighing it. i'm hoping for 100kg to be removed witout a copper knowing what's going on if he/she has a sticky beak


                          took her for a lap around my back yard and it's no rocket ship but it goes alright. i think it weighs about 1300kg and has about 100 flywheel kws - not really much power to weight by todays standards, even for a naturally aspirated car.

                            Turbo is too big. I had one on my mx6, made 2 psi in first
                            caprice nugget.

                              isn't first gear very much traction limited anyway? (i guess not at the strip with proper tyres.) what about 2nd gear onwards, pull much harder?

                              edit: forgot about the mx6 thread

I had a s4 turbo on mine first, bad combo, but for drags might be ok, it would only manage 2 psi in first then 6 in 2nd then boost cut at 8 in 3rd
