Re: Any turbo or supercharged NC in NZ

the ONLY reason TDR did the rear mount turbo was in the U.S you cant remove the header mounted cat converter.. no such issue in NZ TDR do a specific RHD turbo kit for the NC and a ECU retune...thats the way to go

Hmmm bugger... I may have persuaded my dad to go buy a new ND. Wonder if this affects the autos AFAIK the nd uses the same auto gearbox as the NC so should be OK. ..also the more powerful fiat is rumoured to use the older stronger NC manual box as the test mules broke gearboxes in testing with the ...

short term easy mod for more spark is to fit new power and earth leads to the coil packs. the stock wiring loom is rubbish. basically fit a relay next to the ignitor that feeds off the alternator or big feed to the fuse box and run grunty power feeds to the coils. also upgrade the coil earths. this ...

i hate to break it to ya, but the B6 motor in the MX is no honda. they breathe like shit and the head is really restrictive. the only way to get any sort of power out of them is turbo. any NA mods are just pathetic and costly... if you want a better car then add a lightweight flywheel and 2.0-2.5" e...

there is ZERO point in bigger injectors on an mx.

they run PIG RICH even on stock injectors. you need to get it breathing better and leave the fuel alone. in fact my turbod car runs a leaner afr than factory NA tune.

id get the tuners to check your cruise mixtures and timing. if your too lean you can spike Exhaust gas temps and cause a miss, can also overheat the O2 sensor and give issues. so many tuners just throw in a timing map then shoot for an AFR target but have ZERO idea what its actually doing to exhaust...

the biggest difference in terms of bracing is... 1) rear subframe brace between the lower wishbone bolts. (the later 1800 cars had this factory fitted.) 2) frog arms....yes weird name but they stiffen up the area around the A pillar and give better steering and sway feel. 3) rear seatbelt tower brac...

the only difference is that the auto transmission cars had a lower compression and less HP. only real way to tell if you have an auto motor is possibly the throttle body to inlet manifold may have an adaptor on it as the TB are different. if the motor is from a nz registered car you may be able to q...

Most ecus have a setting for cranking dwell and then running dwell. more dwell when cranking. miata turbo.net has the settings. also make sure your earths are 100% as a bad earth will cause the secondary coil voltage to skyrocket

My point is that even compared to the exact same model in aussie and exchangecrate nz is still 10-15% overpriced. you cant tell me it costs $5000 more to ship from japan to auckland than japan to sydney.

The price isnt that great. when you look at the aussie and U.S prices the nz price is still 10-15% more than the exchange rate. they are still taking the piss on pricing.

dont over charge your battery, you will cook all the charge out of it. also dont let it get dead flat (like under 11 volts) as that kills batteries too.
