    Intercoolers are cooler with proper tubing

    Sorry for the delay between updates... I've got no excuse this time, just been otherwise occupied. But I've managed to do some things on the car...

    Although I had already 'finished' the intercooler tubing, I wasn't happy with it.
    The previous setup for the pipework from the Turbo to the Intercooler was 3 aluminium lengths joined by silicone 45deg bends.
    This would result it too many potential failure points and too many heavy hose clamps.


    Thankfully the solution was simple, replace the silicone 45's with aluminium 45's. And now that I had the TIG welder, I could put this all together myself without too much trouble. (and any excuse for welding practice is good)
    This is all 2" tube, to match the outlet from the turbo. The silicone joiner into the intercooler is a 2.5" to 2" reducer 90deg bend.


    While I was at it, the intake INTO the turbo needed to be sorted out also as nothing had been done for that yet.
    The tube work here is 2.5" to match the inlet to the turbo. Working backwards from the turbo to the pod filter there is a 90deg bend out and up from the turbo, and then another 90 to bring the tube parallel with the ground again and over the top of the frame rail. Then, a 3" to 2.5" reducer to adapt from the pod filter.


    I decided to go with the pod filter mounted just behind the left hand headlight. (well, if I actually ran headlights) Theres plenty of room there for the pod, and any sort of intake ductwork or whatever I end up with here.... I do not have an exact plan for that yet.



    Any thoughts on what I should do here exctly?
    Box in the pod filter?
    Naca duct in the headlight?
    Or run some duct for some cold air intake into the pod perhaps?

    For aero drag, your better off with less openings on the front. Just put the pod filter in front of the tyre. Completely smooth front with no lumps or bumps is the go. Just one smallish opening for the heat exchangers.

    I wouldn't put the POD near the tyres for fear of rain and weather getting in.

    I'm considering just running a hose up from the radiator intake duct to a hole under where the pod will go, and boxing that in.

    Splash guard in front of the tyre...
    Your idea will work too.

    Did you forget about the Fastback?

    Last time with the roof I had finished painting but it still needs a few finishing touches. Windows for the side and back, some foam rubber seals to get the roof sitting nicely on the body of the car and some fixings to bolt it down.


    Here's the style shot of the couple of layers of carbon cloth drenched in resin. This is hand laid and squeegeed to try get the resin out. Not the lightest or strongest way to do carbon... it's mostly just for looks, and to keep the wind out.


    I have an old bathroom mirror that's handy for doing nice smooth flat sheet like this. PVA release is brushed on the glass first to ensure this stuff comes away easily when it's set. The masking tape is good for keeping the mess contained and aids cleanup.


    Once cured, the window shape was cut with an angle grinder and sanded smooth before being glued (sikaflexed) in place.


    For the rear window, I'd tossed up the idea of running no back window, or a louvered window Lambo Huracan style. But, ended up going for a plain clear lexan window for best visibility.


    A black border is painted around the permiter of the window to hide the glue, and the window is glued and clamped down.


    So to make sure the rear window really stuck down properly and followed the slight curve of the rear section of the fastbacnk, it needed to be weighed down.
    You can see here how ugly and yellow the doors look now. The rattle can 'appliance white' paint has not worn well. I've decided they really need to be sanded back and painted properly. But that will be a future update...

    Another exciting thing to happen in the BEAVIS world of MX-5's recently:

    Coolant Hose Fail on the VVT Supercharged NA


    So the story on this one goes... I was driving the car to work and thankfully I had the Torque app running on the headunit which is hooked into the car via an OBD2 bluetooth dongle. It kicks up an alert as the coolant temp hits 100degC (212degF)
    Immediately I'm perplexed as its never hit that before. At first I suspected it was a result of the weather as it gets toasty here in Melbourne around December/January. When moving, the temp would return to ~95deg, but when stationary it would return to as high as 105deg
    So, there is little I can do as I need to get to work, after work i start the car and begin the drive home, thankfully there isn't too much traffic but the symptoms eventually return as the car warms up. I cruise home cautiously trying to keep the temp under 100ish as best I can.

    As soon as I pull into the driveway and kill the motor I can hear a hiss and fear the worst. Busted Rad? Boiled Coolant? Head Gasket? ???
    I pop the bonnet and the hissing is coming from around the intake manifold, I suspect perhaps one of those smaller coolant hoses that runs to the throttle body and oil filter may have failed?
    I poke around and I can see coolant, but cant find a source.

    Then, I squeeze the top radiator hose, no pressure at all and a splooge of coolant comes out the side of it. Well there's my problem. And the cause is immediately obvious.
    The hose has been ever so slightly rubbing on the supercharger drive belt. The belt has carved a hole out of the hose, only tiny, but enough for the coolant to spray out at a high level of force.

    So, a quick hose swap and some length adjustment and the issue is gone Phew

    Here's a video of that endeavor:

    So lots of work has been happening lately, and I've neglected to keep the forum up to scratch, but in summary....
    • I've worked on getting the doors painted so now they almost match and are much more sturdy than the old rattle can paint.
    • The brake duct mockup has translated into version 1 of aluminium brake ducts. Liken them to home made singular motorsport items.
    • The oil cooler has been moved to a better spot - although not yet plumbed in.
    • The front duct work from the bumper to the radiator has been completed.
    • The front bumper has been cleaned up and painted.


    But, more excitingly, the engine has been started!
    Yep, I finally got around to nipping up the last of the bolts and giving everything a quick once over to start it and fire it all up. After some delays due to a swap around of the LS coil firing order, it started right up. A brief video to summarise where things are at with the car:


    And, the other exciting news is that I was able to get the car out to Sandown Raceway for the MX-5 Fan Fest.
    With the 1,000,000th MX-5 on show, Mad Mike in attendance, and some 670 or so fellow MX-5's... we and had a great day in the hot Aussie sun.

    The car loaded on the trailer for the first time in 18 months....






    Really happy to see the car out again and fully dressed. It's been a long time since it's had all it's body panels mostly installed.
    That's it for now, I'll post some individual updates of all of the little changes that have been happening to the car in the coming days with pics detailing what I've done.
    Next step is to properly tune the car and then, aero/bodywork upgrade is in order.

    Cheers,
    Brendan

    Thanks fella's.... car's been on the dyno and after a few niggles, finally got things settled and working.
    It's running around 180rwkw and a safe level of torque so as to not blow the little MX5's standard motor or gearbox.

    Painting Doors
    The doors on this car were hand me downers, very rough and I'd previously painted them with rattle cans in a mismatched white.
    Since I'd gone to the effort of painting the roof, it didn't seem like much more work to get the doors painted too.
    Well, that was until I got a little closer to them.


    One door in particular was really battered up, dents and wrinkles and layers of paint that just made me cry. I sanded away the old flaked and poorly adhered paint and prepped them for a fresh coat.


    My el-cheapo paint gun I bought for under $100. Actually worked alright for a super budget job. (and ghetto paint booth behind)


    After filling the bad bits, the doors got a couple of coats of primer and the odd bit of filler again to neaten up the areas that needed more attention.... then, some paint went down.

    The colour came out nicer than it did on the fastback, I think I've gotten better with the painting method and working with the settings on the paint gun.


    This is a bit of a 'money shot'. I think this shot perhaps flatters my success with the paint more I deserve. But it does look nice and shiny here. Oooooohhh
    You can see the beginnings of a run in the corner of the door handle.

    Oh I should mention, I took some video of a friends car recently. A turbo NA6 with a collection of both interesting and unusual mods.
    First time I've done a more artsy video like this really... so apologies in advance for my lack of video making skill, I tried to polish a turd (the turd being my poor recording skills) by doing the best I could via post processing in Adobe Premiere.

    Soo... onto some of the other things that I had managed to finish (or in some cases, half finish) before the MX-5 Fan Fest event I mentioned a few posts ago.....

    Oil Cooler
    First up, the oil cooler has been moved to a better spot, plenty of airflow here - although it's clearly not yet plumbed in.
    On the pondering list is, exactly what sort of lines I will run, and where/how I till run them. Need to prepare the wallet first, hose fittings aren't cheap.


    Rad Duct
    And with the oil cooler in place, I needed to work out the front duct work between the bumper and the radiator(s).
    This is a reasonably simple aluminium box which bolts to the front of the car and is almost a perfect seal around the radiator, and also seals on the bumper opening.


    This angle kinda helps to visualize the airflow.... in the front, through the heat exchangers, out the vented hood.


    Brake Duct
    Aluminium brake duct mockup version 1. I'm not sure if these will stay as is, and whether I will leave them as aluminium. Still pondering that one.
    I guess you can liken them to home made singular motorsport items. On the to do list is to run a hose of some form to them, and make an inlet in the front ductwork.


    Front bumper
    Lastly, the front bumper has been cleaned up and painted... The difference between the before and after is quite satisfying.
    Here it is looking very sad for itself after I separated it away from the old splitter.


    It got a good share of body filler and sanding around the front.



    And after a good clean, removing a lot of old glue and some fresh paint, this was the much less crap bumper. Ah and I 3Dprinted myself a new front badge.
    This angle also shows how critical some front wheel spats/canards are to clear air from the front wheels.

    Ahh so I am pleased to say I have a new episode out on my YouTube channel with some updates on the car
    This video details how I made up the aluminium sheet radiator ducting.

    So not a lot has been happening with the Track car lately, in fact it's literally just sat in the corner for the last month and a half. But I've started back on the car this week hopefully it will be in good running form within a few weeks with the last of the mechanical pieces buttoned up.

    In the meantime, I've fettled with the NA a little which excitedly includes taking it to Broadford for a track day with the Local Nissan Skyline Car Club.

    Had a blast running around on the track, it's been way too long. And while the car had some random chinese hard tyres and generic brake pads, it was till great fun.
    A track day on a 'street' car is sure to find the weak links in the chain... in this case, the generic spark plugs suffered under the stress, the stock upper radiator hose got all fat and ballooned, and the supercharger belt was stretched and rubbing itself away, there was a buildup of rubber gunk under the bonnet as a result.
    So, some new plugs, belt and hose and the car is good as new.

    I actually entered to get my brother to come along for his first on track event. He managed to work down from a 1:22 to eventually a best time of a 1:17 in a completely stock Toyota 86. I had a go for a session and did a 1:15 in his car so we have a bit of a benchmark.
    A short clip of my brother with me in the passenger seat giving some instruction.

    And a couple of laps in my car while it was still healthy, plenty of fun tassling with the likes of a Porsche Cayman GT4 and a Nissan GTR. The porsche was running what appeared to be slicks :-O

    So it has been a long time between updates (as usual really).
    Progress on the Track car has been slow, sometimes it seems like it is the lowest on the priority list after all the other things in life.
    But with that said. lots of things have been happening.

    I've spent some time fiddling with the idea of a water sprayer for the intercooler, and have made up a little Alu reservoir bottle which supports the factory windscreen washer bottle pump. A good opportunity to put my welding skills to the test as this was very thin aluminium.


    And for an experiment, here's the new battery that's going in the car. I bought two for redundancy purposes, but I'm crossing my fingers that just the one will suffice.
    They are LifePo4 batteries, and as such are considered to be safer than typical RC LiPo's but still offer many of the power output and weight benefits. They were about $60ea I think so pretty good value if they hold up, or an expensive paper weight if I blow them up.


    The car used to run a strut tower brace - in my opinion they don't do a whole lot. But the reason I ran it was for the big bolt I used as a brake master cyl stopper.
    So, I designed up my own brake master cyl stopper which is with the laser cutter at the moment which will allow me to leave the strut brace off completely. This is a pic of a 3dprint prototype to confirm my dimensions and I was pleased to find it all lined up mostly perfect. Next step is to make the steel version.


    Onto the supercharged NA, as I mentioned in the previous post, the car got a new upper radiator hose which was a generic silicone job off ebay. A new SC belt - they are super easy to find as the part numbers are generic, I think this new belt is off a Mazda CX-5. And some fresh spark plugs.


    Another thing which got me a little bit excited, installed some of these side skirts on the car. Big fan of the look, I think they really make the car look lower and more agressive.



    We've got ANOTHER car in the garage... This rather sad looking NA6 has arrived for some much needed TLC. I've already got to work on it and made a lot of progress as you can see from the pictures below.
    It needed all new glass, a variety of mechanical attention, a whole lot of cleaning, and some mild panel beating among other things.
    More details on what I did, and what the plans are for the car are yet to come, but rest assured it will get the same treatment as all the BEAVIS cars - that being lots of love but thrashed at the track!



    And, lastly, a litte bit of a plug... super excited because I've gotten some new PVC stickers made! I designed them up myself using my limited Photoshop skills.
    These things are perfect for bumpers/windows/external use, and if you are keen for one (please buy one and support me!), please visit my web store: http://www.beavismotorsport.com

    Just get the car useable so you can drive it on the track. You can always do upgrades later, like your water sprayer. When is its 3 year off the track anniversary?

    It could compete tomorrow if I really wanted to.

    I had to check Natsoft, you have ONLY gone just over 2 years. While I was there I looked at Broadford, and how we had 2 completely different cars (Silvia vs MX5) with there own issues, but our best lap times differed by only 0.1 seconds. Who owns a Silvia without a turbo anyway?

    More the point, can you believe a Silvia on semi slicks is just as fast as an MX5 using chinese generic tyres? We know both cars had reasonable drivers.

    The Semi slicks had no more grip than the road tyres. I can remember the brand. Nankang's or something. The Silvia had the better driver.....

    In case you hadn't noticed. It's been a suuuuper long time between updates - the longest I think I've ever let it go. Why? Well mostly just because of all the other MX-5 things that needed to be done. But the main item worth mentioning that I've been working on is another MX-5!

    Now this sorry car was destined for the local car wrecker, so I snapped it up before they got their dirty mits on it!
    A 1990 NA6 with some 250,000kms on it, stolen and recovered. But sadly very badly damaged in the process. If I ever met the people who caused all this damage boy would I want to give them a 'stern talking to'. Honestly they damage they caused to someone elses property for ZERO benefit just boils my blood.


    Anyhoo, after picking the thing up effectively sight unseen, I had to assess the damage and, well, the to do list was immediatly pretty extensive:
    • Every window was smashed
    • Roof was slashed beyond repair
    • All 4 quarter panels were kicked in
    • Ignition barrel was destroyed
    • The car was filthy inside and out
    • The shifter needed a complete rebuild
    • And the list goes on....


    So I quickly got to work stripping the car down for a 'rebuild'. The door trims needed to come off to be repaired, the seats and rear carpets were removed for cleaning and the damaged roof removed.


    One of the first things I wanted to get completed was the new soft top. I sourced a new roof online and swapped it over on the existing frame one night while in front of the telly. Not too hard to do but certainly time consuming. Here it was after first throwing it back on the car, its certainly nice and taught when latched down!


    Then the interior needed to be reassembled, I repaired the door cards which were pretty sad, cleaned everything up as there was glass EVERYWHERE! And, gave as many things as possible a wipe/clean/paint as necessary to get the interior up to scratch.
    I had a spare ignition barrel and keys from my NB track car, so I replaced the damaged NA item which doesn't have quite the same dimensions but I was able to make it work.


    While I was at it, I swapped in a nice new short shifter with new bushes as the shifter in the car was completely trash, it felt horrid and was as floppy as a........ well something really floppy? Took that as an opportunity to also video the install process. As seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EPRv7ZWHf0


    Onto some of the exterior items, and firstly I had to remove the bumper and guards to try and clean them up and straighten them out. The fools who had stolen the car had kicked the crap out of the front guards, the drivers side was particularly bad. I was able to recover it to a respectable level with some careful massaging. Still damaged/wavy but not completly ugly.


    Under the bonnet, things seems pretty good and in fairly good nick. There's the usual oil leaks that you get with an old NA, so first thing I did here was replace the valve cover gasket. While pretty much all the other seals need attention also, this will do for the moment.




    While under the bonnet, I also took the opportunity to add a little bit of bling with this radiator cooling panel designed by yours truly. Makes for an awesome shelf to keep your tools in order while working on the car and really neatens things up! Want one? You can order them from www.beavismotorsport.com/store


    Onto the rear body work. This was some of the more daunting work the car needed as this was much more extensive body work than I'd expected would be required before collecting the car. Anyway, it was just a matter of getting in there beating out the dents from inside the trunk area, then sanding back the exterior paint and smoothing it over with filler.


    After a few nights/weekends here and there I was able to get it good enough for some primer and for the first time be able to visualise a mostly straight pair of rear quarter panels.


    While they werent body shop perfect, I really did think they were 99% there. I had the odd few little spots that were a little off but again, given how the car was when I got it I really felt this was a complete transformation.


    To finish off that job, of course I need to give it all a paint job - it actually turned out much better than I expected, however, it ended up being so nice that it didn't blend in well enough with the rest of the car. So I ended up trying to paint the whole car. With only 1.5ltrs of red paint on hand, I sadly ran out toward the end of the paint job so I'll re-do it someday in the future to get a better result. But, nonetheless it's already WAY better than when I first saw the thing!


    Basically the ONLY modification this otherwise stock car got was a set of these hilariously cheap coilovers. WHY??? Well, for science mostly.
    Yeah, I was just genuinely interested in seeing how they might perform for sub $500 coilovers. You can't expect them to be very good at that price, and this seemed like as good an opportunity as any to find out how they would do.


    If you're interested in finding out how they actully perfromed, well I've put a video together on that here with my take on things:


    And so, the final result was a car saved from the wreckers and back on the road! An MX-5 still running and driving on the road makes me ever so happy. This car is club registered for occasional use only, hence the burgundy front registration plate. And now the plan for the car is to help my brother to set it up as a super cheap track day car. Something just to get out there and have a drive.


    Lastly, if you are curiour around the question of costs.... in terms of actual money spent, it's probably well under $2000 to get to this point.
    HOWEVER, I spent MANY hours bring the car back from the dead. Would I have been better off just buying a half decent car for maybe $4-$5k? Sure, but then I wouldnt be able to say I saved and MX-5 from a certain death!
    Stay tuned for updates on how we make this car a track toy, and of course next time I promise there will be news on the BEAVIS Turbo NB.

    Looks good in the pics. But next time you are going to paint it let me know so I can lend a hand and my long sanding block.
    I will have to find the time to get my NA6 on club rego.

    Thought it would be fitting to post up a lap of me in Dave Moores impressively fast 300+HP turbocharged daily/track car.

    This is my first time at Winton Raceway with the new surface, and my first time driving a car with this level of power on track, but I apparently set the fastest lap the local MX-5 club have on their record list. That's mostly thanks to the capability of the car, and NOT me... as I am very rusty and certainly don't want to bend someone else's car.

    Nonetheless, the thing is a hoot to drive and it's great to see it getting to the point of being fairly reliable on track.
