I would suggest breaking your car in progessively. This will give you opportunity to check/have the car checked before you're going to start running it regularly at the sort of RPM that you are aiming for. The power fc also has the ability to monitor water temperature - might pay to set a channel to...

Oil has got detergent in it to clean the build up of gunk from the inside of your engine. I can only presume that this is what they are referring to. The viscosity numbers refer to the outside temperature range for an oil. For my oil (10W-30), the outside temperature range is -20 to above 40 degrees...

I've always been told that a N/A car makes power with revs. So, make the car rev better and you'll get more power (or at least get to the power better).

Intake + CAI, exhaust + extractors, cams, head work.

RB74 brake pads are great for the street. Dont take any time to heat up to optimum braking temperature and take a fair bit of work before they start fading. Are fairly cheap too, you could get a full set (front and rears) for less than $300.

I've seen an MX-5 with a supecharger on it. Not particularly difficult to do and relatively cheap. Turbo slightly more involvement/cost.

That said, an MX-5 with an SR20 in it would be awesome!

Certainly would be a very unique car. I would start by doing a LOT of research - working out the legal side of things would have to be first (and then logistics problems, ie will the stuff from under an evo bonnet fit underneath a mirage bonnet for starters). Contact the transport department and wor...

Try contacting Brisbane Sporting Car Club - the should have some info about this.

There is actually an AutoCross track at Willowbank - a couple of hundred metres before the entrance to the Queensland Raceway on the left hand side.

Turbo cars suffer from this more due to the fact that they naturally run hotter. The oil heats up, vapourises and starts going back out your intake plenum. An oil catch can will vent this vapours to atmosphere but will still catch an oil that may be present. They are fairly cheap (~$100 from any des...
