Just a few updates...
First off, I upgraded the mounting tabs on the MAM Intercooler, the one and only tab that was on there was a bit wimpy for my likeing, so I removed it and had 2 welded on to spread the load out a bit before I installed it...

In that pic you can also see I painted my A-pod pillar to match the factory grey colour of the interior trim. Thanks to Paul (BIGWOOFER) for helping out with the colour code info... ;D It looks great with the Auto Meter Ultra-Lite Oil Pressure and Boost Gauges.

On a side note, I had an opportunity to pick up a red top Optima cheap, so it went in today...

Having issues with the negative terminal tho'. Looking into something better than what I'm using now.
I also installed the Vacuum block for the turbo install today. I just cut the hose and spread it apart to fit the block in. I plan on actually shortening the hose to make it fit better later on. At this point I only have my boost gauge connected to it and it is doing a stellar job of showing me vacuum readings! ;D I can hardly wait for the BOOOOOST readings! I'd also like to find something better than those big unsightly hoser clamps that are on there now... ;D

I also picked up a bung today to have welded onto my oil pan for the oil return line. I'll just cap it until I do the turbo install...

I put together a fitting for my oil supply line that would also accomodate the pressure gauge. This did eliminate the OEM low oil pressure sending unit tho'. Again, I capped off the oil supply fitting until the turbo is installed...
[IMG][/IMG]
Sorry about the pic links... kinda have them spread out over a few hosts...

make sure you mount that drain fitting as high up as possible and make it the straight shot into the pan as possible.

if you mount it low in the pan, you could have back up issues and end up killing the seals in the turbo prematurely.

You mention the bypass of your oil pressure sending unit? (the factory one). Is there not enough room to install this back in line with your oil feed tee?

I would suggest figuring out a way to do this. I assume you drive this on a daily basis. If you dont have an idiot light on your dash that goes off in the event you lose oil and you dont have a oilpressure gauge, it could some major damage to the car/motor.

This is where the return bung is going to be located, just below the flange on the pan.
The idiot light isn't an issue as I have the oil pressure gauge.

Santa Claus came early... today actually!

Well I took advantage of the sale that HorsepowerFreaks was having on the SPEC clutch kits and ordered a Stage II+ for my car. It is good for 340 ft/lbs of torque, not that I expect to get anywhere close to that number...
It arrived today.

Transmission Lube

I'm getting my Mazdaspeed LSD transaxle and SPEC Stage II+ clutch installed next week and I was thinking that I should treat the tranny to something other than your everyday 75W-90. Any recommendations and suggestions where to purchase in the Nanaimo area?

Re: Transmission Lube

what is the requirment for protege tranny and mazdaspeed LSD? (clutch type or gear type?)
if it is clutch type, mostly you will need to add lsd modifier if you use normal gear oil, or you can get the gear oil that is designed for with LSD
for gear type, you only need gear oil, that's all

for me, i will try the motul GEAR FF for clutch type lsd tranny
motul MOTYLGEAR 75W-90 for gear type lsd tranny

You need some Amsoil MTG synthetic manual transmission lube to get the best and I just happen to know someone who can hook you up!

I have been using the Honda OEM stuff and its been great so far... I just have to change it frequently as the Quaife tends to go through it a bit quicker.

The Amsoil MTF is superior to the OEM stuff. I even converted a Honda technician...

MTF for Honda/Acura, MTG for Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, VW, and most everything else.

because B-series engine isn't designed to use gear type oil...
execpt clutch type lsd, you never run that heavy oil in the B-series tranny

i am using Motul Motylgear 10W-40
it is still pretty good after running them for almost a year now with many times of autox

2 more items to check off the list.

Got the clutch and Mazdaspeed transaxle in today...



I ordered some Amsoil MTF but it didn't arrive in time for me to use at the swap. It was here when I got back home though so I'll probably change it out this weekend.
Also, I discovered a leaking front strut while the car was up on the hoist and while explaining some rough idle symptoms to my tech I find out that the EGR sensor is probably in need of replacement. (Apparently this is not uncommon with the '02 FS-DE engine.) I also found out that I should be thinking about replacing my timing belt (Recommended at 90,000K).
Damn, the way things are going I may not be able to race until June!

$3500 Canadian? That's cheap! With a GT ball bearing turbo, IC, header. That's the cost of an IC and TC alone on my car. I'd be all over it.

Well I went to do my struts today and got as far as taking the front wheels off. The bolts holding the end links for the sway bar are seized solid. They're a wierd setup with a hex socket in the end of the bolt like this...

Unfortunately this is a common occurance with these cars so it's gonna have to go to the shop to get done...
(Actually, I'll probably just get them to undo the end-links, lube 'em up and/or replace the bolts and then I'll do it later.)
