Heh. I feel my car is puny next to these, but I'll go ahead anyways:


1988 MX-6 GT list:

  • Custom exhaust (pulled off a junkyard 1st gen) with a pretty big fart cannon (hey, it was damn near free and will do for now!)
  • Ractive cone filter with (fake carbon fiber) heat shield
  • Cracked TB boot
  • Hole in exhaust manifold
...and that's about it!

..I'm sad.

Engine I'm building for my B2200:


Bottom end:

Releasing core sand from block
Torque Plate honed
Crank counterweights aerofoiled
Micropolished crank
Cap girdle
"Other" crank modifications :)
Custom made high compression pistons
Beam polished rods
Baffled oil pan
Possably coated pistons
Fidanza aluminum flywheel
Keeping stock truck harmonic ballancer
Ballanced rotational assembly

Top End:

12-valve head
Hand made manifold
CC'd chambers, possably coated
Port work
Valve work, possably with coatings
Custom grind cam, also might be coated
J-Spec truck manifold or hand made manifold

Fuel and Ignition:

Megasquirt controlled
E85 Flex Fuel compatable
EDIS ignition
Low resistance coil wires


I'm sure someone will bash me for the coatings but I should be able to do most of it through ties at work and Calico is about 30 min away. I also want to get rid of the HLA's and replace them with solid lash adjustors if there are any that easily interchange. Roller cam followers would be nice, I might have an interchange possability on those that would reqire bushing to be press fit into the rocker body.

I also need flow numbers of a virgin head from .050" lift all the way up to max if anybody has them. Might be able to finagle using the flow bench at work if not. Havn't looked into valve possabilities yet and part of that will depend on flow numbers.

Who is running aluminum flywheels? I've had one to install for about 5 years now but never have because I was afraid it would be too hard to drive. Can anybody give me any input on how streetable they are? My truck will probably weight about 2,200 lbs or less by the time I'm done.
