Im not usually one for asking questions but searching seems to be just becoming a minefield.
What options are available for MK2 NB 1.8 performance Cams?
BP-4W and BP-Z3 VVT as I have both MK2 and MK2.5. Also have a spare VVT motor if higher comp needed on the BP4W.
Im only looking...
Hi there, would massively appreciate some help on this, driving me nuts!
NA 1.8 Eunos, Both Power Windows Stopped Working
There is continuity to both the drivers side and passengers side motors from the switch
There is continuity across the 30A Power Window fuse
a little bit of background information first!
I have a roadrunner sr2, which is basically a caterham 7 replica which runs the mazda mx5 running gear (Rear diff / gearbox / BP engine). When I first purchased the car, it had a standalone ECU and made approximately 145bhp/130ftlb. This was...
Hi all I am currently rebuilding my 1.8 VVT engine and going turbo but can't decide on weather or not to go for a TD04-13T or the TD05H-16G
So far my build is as follows;
84mm Wiseco Low-Comp Pistons
ACL Race Bearings
Stage 1 ported (exhaust side) and polished head...
Hello my name is Haakon and I'm a 21 year old IT student from Norway. I bought my first Mazda MX-5 Miata in August 2017 and have done a few things to it since I got it.
It's a 1999 NB 1.8 model imported from Switzerland to Norway in 2009. It has also been a cup car in Germany earlier in its...
I'm a first time five owner who's been lurking on several of the forums for tech advice and decided to say hello and join up with yourselves as the build threads I've been most interested in are all on here. I'm Bristol based and acquired a 1.8 pleb model in the summer of last year...
Looking for a headlight relay to see if that'll fix my problem of my lights going up but only going down If I manually wind them!
Its a black relay under the dash with "Retract" written on it.
Im also hoping that people on here are more understanding and don't price it at £20! the amount of...
Build thread here: http://www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=303369&page=1
The build thread should tell you everything you need to know.
Every nut and bolt on this car has been stripped off the car and replaced or restored. There's not a spot of rust anywhere and the car is ready for...
Quick question regarding drive shafts. I need a new one, as the threads are damaged on the drivers side and I'm not happy to use it.
So first question...! Are 1.6 and 1.8 drive shafts the same?
Secondly, are the shafts handed, or are they the same both sides? I can't see why they'd be...
I've wanted to get an mx5 for years, and since my E36 got written off a couple weeks ago by some inconsiderate P***k, I'm going to get one.
I want a mk1, just because i prefer the looks and pop up headlights. I want the 1.8 and preferably a jap import eunos. Rust free would be...
Afternoon MX5 Nutz.
Have done a quick hi thread over in the introductions area, sorted the photo uploads btw :) . I thought I'd jump straight in here having had most of this novel saved on my pc and a spare hour or so to tweak and write it up for on here! My name's Alan and I'm from up north...
Since I'm eventually making some progress with the project, I suppose it's time to make a build thread!
So, the first 5 was this:
It was a 1.8 1996 UK Mk1.
But, after doing a couple bits to it, I finally realised just how critical the rust was. And with quotes of £1300-£1800 to get it...
Since my Mk1 was originally a 1.6 (Import too), and I've swapped the engine out to a 1.8, will this make a massive difference to insurance?
Or can I register it as a 1.8 through the DVLA, and then when insuring it, it will just be classed as a 1.8, and not a 1.6 changed to a 1.8...
This may be a lengthy post, but if anyone at all could help in the slightest I would appreciate it more than you could imagine! :unsure:
So to start, I bought a 1996 1.8 Mk1, done a couple bits, but then found out before I got it on the road that the rust was beyond repair, and in the...
Time for the second build thread in 3 months! This can only mean two things:
2. I'm addicted to Mx5's
My first ever car was a Peugeot 106 1.1 Independance, I assume they called it the Indepdance as the electronics operated in a completely independant galaxy from the rest of the car...
New member, just got me a lovely little mx5 with only 66k on it and it has spoken to me, its has asked to be upgraded..
What can I do? Already I have bonded with her, she goes where I want, when I want it, done a 320 mile drive from Newcastle just after buying her and now we are a...
