That's how they do all the ice racing in NY. I've been hoping to do some of that for years. Festiva would be a great candidate. I could use some bolts to make some spiked tires.

my car is about to die, I can give you the "stud-able" hankooks on it now.



P.S. would you recommend a miata for a daily driver?


they've been striking my fancy recently.

If you rarely need to carry 2nd passenger, they are amazing daily drivers. Fun cars and as gay as they may be, putting the top down and driving around on a nice day is amazing.

Plus they're like a motorcycle on a sunny day. All the other Miata drivers wave as they pass.

what's the deal with the 2nd passenger thing? too much weight for the car?

remember, I drive an 80hp car that's probably heavier.

It has one seat for you and one for a passenger.

I parked my car in November of 2007 to save for my trip to Europe. It took 5 months to save, 4 months to spend and another 9 months to save up again. Time to get it back on track. I'm about $600 into getting it going again.

It started as just a simple turbo manifold upgrade. Ebay Stainless Top Mount -> Slowboy Cast Bottom Mount. This led to a revision of the oil drain, but due to some past fixes, my old DSM pan was unusable (had a BIG hole in it with a bulkhead fitting).

So I took my spare engine's D50 pan and put that on and made new lines. Unfortunately, it wouldn't fit over the 240SX crossmember, so I cut the 240SX crossmember up and welded the rack flanges onto a Starion crossmember and redrilled the holes for the LCAs. This narrowed the front track enough that the tie rod ends needed to be shortened.

Luckily a few days before I would have cut them, I learned about MA-Motorsport's "Awesometron 5000" hubs (more angle, less ackerman, quicker steering). These hubs required longer tie rods on a 240SX, but I can use stock length tie rods just fine with my modifications. I put them on, and boxed in my lower control arms while I was at it. With the Starion crossmember, the engine moved forward an inch or so. I had to redo the intercooler pipes, tilt the radiator and intercooler up to clear the engine.

This weekend I'll be adjusting the steering column to fit now that the rack has moved around a bit. Will need to extend the driveshaft 2" (it was already 1.5" and the engine moving forward only made it worse. Also I need to make a new downpipe. Not sure how I can manage this since I only have 5" between my V-band flange and the firewall to fit a 3" mandrel bend.

I wonder if I will need to re-tune the engine due to the new exhaust manifold. Anyone with any tuning experience know if this will require me to change my fuel or ignition maps?

I've got 2 days this weekend to finish it up and then its going on the trailer next Friday.

That kinda sucks how a "simple" manifold change can cause such a snowball that you have to redo almost everything under the hood.

I would say that the manifold won't make you change your fuel maps or anything. You should get a little sooner spool from the manifold, but only by a few hundred RPM at most. As long as you have a decent tune in the first place, it won't effect anything.

Glad to see you've finally got back on this project. Hopefully this month I'll be doing a little work as well. Keep us updated and take some pics.

I'm thinking about retiring the old girl. Its been sitting for the better part of 3 years now with a few minutes of actual seat time between long stretches of fixing things. I COULD put it back together, but after reading all of the current rule books and thinking of all the work that would be needed to A) get it running and B) make it conform to the rules, I think its better to just strip it and store all the custom parts and one day buy a new chassis when I'm ready to go again.

Sad Sad Sad

Or you could change the purpose of the car. What about time attack or something? It's a waste to just let it sit. I say either get it going, or sell it off. I'm sure someone would be willing to pay enough to make it worth selling even if you need to part it out. But I would much rather see it on a track somewhere.

Junked the police car chassis, white chassis and stars and bar chassis back in the summer of 2011. Bought a rust free 87 a few days later and then started swapping all of the racecar parts over to it. Was supposed to be a few week swap. 4 years later I just took it for paint. Still needs to be tuned after it gets paint.

Hoping to have a nice daily driver with all the go fast parts from the racecar. Going for a very clean car this time. Every bracket and bolt will be clean.

Running a DIYPNP ecu from DIYAutotune. Soldered it together myself. This is a huge change. Sold the Autronic ignition a few years ago. Thinking about selling SMC if this thing runs. Fired up the ECU for the first time in years on a bench and pulled the old .cal file map from it.

Will be so weird to be street driving a Starion again after 10 years.

The Zero is starting to come together. This swap started in August 2011. First start was in winter 2015. Finally getting it from paint in Nov 2015.

Big Turbo


Big Brakes... Big wheels (9s all around)



Big Color Change:




The color is from a 1973 Galant GTO / FTO... Athens Olive (L47)


I'll post more as the livery comes together. Plasticoat black hood (in the spring), yellow fog light tint, Red and White meatball on the doors, Black sandpaper tape for the chip guards.

I've got 2 days of assembly this weekend and it should finally be starting to look like a car again.

Finally feeling good enough to register and insure it. One of the perks of taking for fucking ever on this thing is that now it's old enough to qualify in MD for "Street Rod" tags.

Finally the slow process of putting it back together starts.

The tail lights I've had since my very first SQ back in 2002. They've managed to stay pretty nice even having been lightly into a tire wall once. I never really had them on the race car unless it was a show or meet which was rare. I always swapped over to Conquest tails for the rough stuff. They took a few hours to get ready to put on as they were covered in mud and needed a good cleaning, polishing, and even some light socket replacement. All the good pieces from my pile of 8 lights went into 2 that look pretty good, even after 29 years.



Also got some more parts on the motor. Retorqued the head when I changed the scratched up Hyundai cover to my one of a kind "DOHC 2400" with big -10 vent hoses.




Also added some little touches like the light covers. This is supposed to be a subtle reference to the yellow leading edge of the Zero's wings.
