Post Ryan's Final Build
I'm not sure why I'm starting this thread yet, because I don't even have, or plan to have, the chassis for this car for at least another year. I plan on travelling down into Imperial turf to pick up a 100% mint GS/SE shell, with S/R, A/C, and C/C. Anyone got one for sale? Mileage is not important. I'm concerned about what shape the body is in, and how rusty it is, all over. Interior isn't a big deal either.

This winter I may start on the motor.

Got it

Still looking

Motor will be:

-KLDE block $0
-KLDE heads $40
-Colt 218º/0.355" N/A Race Grind Cams $200
-Interprep valvesprings $275
-KLZE pistons $120
-KLZE curved neck I/M lightly ported and polished $120
-Pheno spacers to help port match $50
-Lightly polished crank $0
-Lightly polished rods $0
-MX-3 flywheel $75
-Balanced rotating assembly $350
-Flatlander rebuild kit EKMA15R $460
-Obviously, EGR delete. $0
-626 5th gear swap
-Clutch: Exedy OEM 07095 | $150
-Colt 218º/0.355" N/A Race Grind Cams $200



Suspension will be:

-H&R on Tokico ZX-2 - $120
-Wytbushings if at all possible, 70A in the rear, 80 up front.
-New Mazda trailing arms $0
-GS 5 spoke $150
-swaybar bushings... unsure. Maybe I can mock up something solid.
-BFG G-Force GT's $200

Performance Add-ons/Upgrades will be:

-Egay headers - $150
-2.5" piping $280
-Long mother glasspack, 30" $40
-Muffler - Magnaflow $110
-Intake - likely home made $40
-Stoker100 custom EPROM $55
-black wires
-Fresh home brew groundwire kit using MB Hydro grade 4 ot terminals $0
-SS clutch line $20
-Battery relocated to side panel, behind rear arm rest. $10
-Integrated HEI mod w/ external coil. No ugly hack job, totally stock looking harness. $0
-Auxiliary oil cooler. $30

Non-Performance Add-ons/Upgrades:

-Slim brake booster mod (RS booster/master)
-MX-6 throttle cable $0
-Peel n' Seal-ed $80 (Thanks to Solo_Ryder)
-Re-loomed and wire tucked
-Re vac hosed and hose tucked. Fuse box relocation, perhaps. $0
-MAZDA brake light mod (Thanks to Dark_Rider2k3) $0
-Clear side markers/signals $0
-Euro mini sides, USDM lip, OEM slim visors $0
-RS raised, or wraparound $20
-Black Projectors w/ vertical LED's $200
-Good lookin' push button ignition. Perhaps w/ key-less ignition.
-Door-Ajar-Chime kill switch. Switch will auto return when door closes.
-Home brew anti-theft. I'm not telling you what, but it will be ingenious.
-Replace stock reservoirs.
-Leather or felt or something sexy on the seats/door trim.
-Eunos steering wheel... mmmm....
-Debadged, with "fanged M" style logo over hatch keyhole.
-Shaved hood emblem
-Maybe a KLZE sticker
-MX-3.COM stick on hatch

Stuff I can't afford:

-MSnS/CarPC - Maybe some day.
-Wytbushings
-Wytendlinks
-Overbore TB
-GC coilovers
-ITB's

Uncertainties:

Switch up the 218's for 210's. Makes like 20hp at idle.

Post Re: Ryan's Final Build
Reading all of them means you've read my old RS thread, lol. I haven't documented my atx-mtx k8-klde GS at all, or my refurbished GS... or my other GS...



On another note, I found a good place in the city that will balance my entire rotating assembly for just under $300. This is ouch, but I feel its essential. They do crank end for end, rods end for end, pulley and flywheel separately, and then all of it together(rods, pistons, bearings, clutch, pulley, all of it)

I won't add pictures till I actually take it off the shelf to work with it :lol:

First project will likely be my home made dunk tank :D

Actually, I think that's a helluva good price. Nice find.

Post Re: Ryan's Final Build
Get Er Done Dude. I wanted to ask if balancing is really necassary. If your using factory parts they should already be good to go shouldn't they? As far as HEI, John has an MSD 2 blaster coil for sale, good price. Have you checked out the price for colt cams? As far as I know there's a buy on ProbeTalk for these isn't there. Like $200 for the set.
anyway good luck on finding a pristine MX-3. You should of bought my 95 last year, it was a beauty with NO rust. Cheers

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Good luck on the build. I'll definetly keep my eyes on this.

Where did you research the k8 cams being an upgrade? I have a k8 sitting on the garage floor and haven't put the Kyle motor in the pro yet

K8 Cams will not work AFAIK, and I believe they can not even be reground by colt because they are smaller.

Post Re: Ryan's Final Build
I'm quite sure they do, but it turns out the K8 cam is so similar to the KL01, its not really worth it. They can't be reground by colt, but I don't understand why. They are basically the same cam. Maybe because they are so small, the ammount of material you'd have to put on them is unsafe.

Too bad, it would be a cool little OEM upgrade.

More research shows that they exhaust cam has a slightly higher lift, but lesser duration. Still not an upgrade.
