Got everything mounted together, drove in on the track and loved it :D. But then came the smog test and i was 45% over allowed values :shock: , + i had a little oil leak, car was debadged and has since just been sitting outside my parents house.
I haven't had time to work on the car, damn school and moving to anew apartement without a place to work on the car :/

The plan is to have the Neon back on the road sometime early in 2011, and have it as a DD, since i bought myself a new Project car :twisted:

The car is a Mazda RX7 1986 Base with 140K miles on the body and 6k on the engine since last rebuild, wich i bought 1.5.2010.

Removed PS and AC.
T2 brakes

nice dorito powered car. i have always liked the RX7's but not a fan of the unreliability of the rotary motors. although they do sound sexy as hell.

Time for a update:
Started with the Jim Stim v1.5 today, my first time ever soldering on a circuit board, was easier than i expected :)

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Finished up the Jimstim today, ready to start on the MS itself next :D

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


Got started on the MS today, 20 steps down, 60 to go :)

Image
Image


JIMstim and MS hooked up for the first time, powered up the kimstim and tested voltage on the 40 processor socket, and everything checked out :)
Image

Last picture of ms, with all the stuff i've installed this far.
Image
Image



Got started on the itb's today.

Modified the tb's so they would fit closer together, going to cut and weld together 4 shafts to make one big, could be difficult to get just right tho...
Image
Image
Image

Decided to more or less copy sicksohc95's Morpeheus ITB, since it's easy to make a mufasa out of a morpheus but not the other way around :)
