The VVT cam gives you variable adjustment of its cam timing with your ecu. So you wouldn't require an adjustable cam gear. This is more ideal than setting the cam timing to a fixed degree because you can optimize the cam timing at lower and upper RPMs. You just need to have an ecu that can control the VVT.
I may get flamed for this, but here goes. I am pretty new to the BP engine. I am considering building an engine similar to Quinn's engine here minus the ITB's. Plan is to find a stock 99-00 1.8 bottom end with a similar build head and flattop intake manifold. Will this setup run ok on a factory ECU or will I need to run a standalone?
Glad this thread got resurrected as I'd lost it. Hoping to follow a similar recipe for my build ... got an '03 block and 99 head already fitted, standard ecu at the moment but the next step is aftermarket ecu and TBS
Anybody no the difference in the NB manifolds. Garage star’s adds say 99/2000 and if you look at technotoy’s web sight they say there manifold is for 01-05 nb’s. Neither is available new.
May be buying a second hand one and am curious if there is a difference. I have a vvt in my car.
As I'm piecing together all the parts for my build I figured I'd start a thread with links to resources to help people who plan on installing Toyota Corolla Levin AE101/AE111 4A-GE quad individual throttle bodies onto their Mazda Miata.
You'll want the following items:

With the engine out i took the opportunity to test fit a new brake booster delete plate design.
A mate helped with the design after a discussion about ITB runner length issues in RHD mx5s . A well credentialed mechanical engineer, this bloke is good to throw ideas about with. I noted the few...
Re: NB Technotoy Irtb manifold
Hi, I am new here. Start to build a ITB to a VVT engine. I have no idea how to connect the air flow sensor & IAT after install the ITBs.
Can someone share me some guidelines ?
