Skid plates are great, though. I always had them on my Subarus. They help keep the engine bay clean, good for aerodynamics, and god forbid, if you ever hit anything...
What's the plan with the Eunos?
A year and a half ago I must've done some damage to the 1.6 engine on the track. Been having a knock ever since and the oil pressures been getting lower. So it's been sitting that whole time.
I have an NB car (99-04 Miata) I bought for parts and planned on pulling the engine to build that for the RHD. Well I found a good deal on a used built engine so it saved me a lot of time.
New engine is a 99 1.8 (BPW non VVT engine) that has Wiseco pistons, H Beam rods, ARP hardware top and bottom, dual valve springs, Boundary Engineering billet oil pump, ACL bearings etc. Some of the 1.6 stuff swaps over too so I'll save cash there.
I'll be taking the exhaust cam from the NB and cutting off the camshaft sensor portion of it to do a cheap cam upgrade (basically 278 duration exh and int) plus I found a new old stock Ford valve cover and timing cover kit for the engine too from a 90s Escort GT.
Overall it will yield me a lot more torque and I can run a lot more boost than I was before.

Do it! He says he has a built motor for it and the trans for extra. They arent hard to put in, would take a day to do it. With what I'm running now I'm around 400 wheel horsepower with bolt ons. Basically I'm at the max the fuel system can handle stock but it's fine. That looks like a clean roller and already has some goodies.
I still have an AEM intake and a BNR s1 turbo I can send you if you get it.

The dump tube is a V band flange and I needed to clock the tube a certain way. Basically it has to be right against the downpipe to prevent it from rubbing the lines.
I bent the new line for more clearance. There is about a 1/4 inch of clearance now.

Thanks dude! I also forgot to post about my oil pan leak I fixed a while back. Here's some pics. Called for around 7-10 hours on ProDemand for labor time but actually took me about an hour and a half to fix. They want you to pull the trans or timing cover but the pan can be slid out with some finesse. When you go to reinstall it just use a soft rubber mallet to tap it back up into place if there is any tension.
