  • Engine setups

    Just wondering what most of you are running for engine setups, built, stockish. what mods are done to them?

  • #2
    DOHC KA with BC 264 cams, Hotshot header, test pipe, SSAC 3" exhaust. Hate it, can't wait to swap in a T28 SR20 setup.

      Mine is mostly stockish

      96 S14
      S13 Intake Cam
      Pulleys
      Hotshot Header
      2.5" Exhaust
      Injen Intake

      I like it, coming from a 1.6L Miata makes it feel like an LS1!

        ^Haha, I guess that makes sense. I've had one or another S14 since 2004, and one of them had a ~350 whp turbo KA for several months, so I've been spoiled. But 1.6L Miatas are slow; I rode along with a Spec Miata at Carolina Motorsports Park and was honestly pretty bored in all but the tightest sections of the track. Super low power momentum cars just aren't my thing I guess.

          The low powered cars are great when you can really make them stick and pull some G's but thats not always the case.

            Its much more fun behind the wheel

            It teaches you a different skill set, you do everything in you power to conserve momentum. I really enjoyed it, but that said, its nice to have some torque to play with now.

              SR2oD3T redtop, y0!
              bored to 86.5mm
              CP pistons, 8.5:1 static CR
              ARP head, rod & main bolts
              GTi-R main bearings, OE rod
              3-angle valve joerb
              new exhaust valve guides
              stock cams
              GReddy RAS's

              Engine is at stock boost levels for now on the stock T25 and stock SMIC. Probably will stay this way for at least another season, as I have some other things to work out first.

                  In the car:
                  S13 SR20DE
                  JWT S3 cams
                  S13 exhaust manifold
                  S14 T28 turbo
                  B13 JWT ECU for the above setup
                  FMIC (PWR tube/fin IC with Ebay piping)

                  In the garage is a redtop SR20DET... still undecided as to what I'm going to do with it. One thing you learn from track days is to keep the build simple and cost effective, because it sure helps you feel better when you just toasted a motor on the track

                    Mine is an Avenir W11 motor running N/A in my B13 with bolt-ons:

                    SSAC 2.5" header
                    Shigspeed Intake

                      Stock internal KA. Never even had the valve cover off.

                      Intake, MSD Blaster SS coil, 3" exhaust.

                      Trying to keep her California legal so I can keep on driving to and from track events.

                      Power to weight is about equal to my brother's E36 M3 and I only go to short tracks, so I'm not going to complain.

                      If you set up an S-chassis decently well, you can run down Evos on a short track with only ~130whp.

                            Stock KA24DE with crappy intake and stock header.

                            I'm working on seeing how far I can go with driving skill, weight reduction, and gearing changes before turning up the power.

                            I may do some BC cams, bump up compression, and tune the ECU to cheat a bit.
