1.19.12: Spec Miata Progress

Posted: January 17, 2012 in Racing

Been a little while since I’ve updated the progress.  Once we got both cars settled and I put up the #49 for sale I’ve been busy with work and family stuff.  Wes has been rebuilding the original car’s engine as it was in much better shape.  Allegedly the #49 engine was recently rebuilt – well maybe 50k miles ago.  So the engine in my car was much better shape.  We have the bottom end rebuilt and the head off at a shop getting fixed up.  Flywheel is at the shop getting resurfaced and I ordered a new clutch kit as both cars clutches were OEM and end of life.  I also picked up an hour meter to gauge engine life and measure how much time in between rebuilds.
