Moving on to the subject of this post. Attached are the photos of where we are going. Instead of a light engine refresh, I absolutely sent it. Please keep the K swap rabble rabble to yourself.
But like... what if I'm a rabble rouser?

After speaking with Boundary Engineering, they were happy to inspect the pump for me free of charge. Win. I guess that's worthy of a can of brake clean.

Tore the Jenveys down while I was at it so they can be sent off for port matching. Hopefully both of these will have short turn around times.

I was able to get both the transmission and the oil pan clean enough to throw some engine enamel at them and make them look somewhat respectable. Wish I had a pressure washer.

The Mazda Motorsports oil pan baffle came in the mail and it looks pretty nice. Ill get that installed once I get the motivation to clean the inside of the oil pan out.

To make this engine really something special, I was hoping to have a set of "MandrewMade" headers built by Andrew (mandrew_made_life on Instagram). Andrew unfortunately quit making them for the foreseeable future, however, I won the lottery, and found somebody selling a used set. These were listed on a Facebook page, and sold within the first 30 minutes of being listed. The person who originally bought them had buyers remorse and I bought them from him. Getting shipped out tomorrow, I cant wait to see these test fitted with the ITBs.

Andrew was nice enough to send me the pictures from the build process of these headers, and with his permission I'm going to post them here, because they are simply magnificent.

The photos of the finished product are absolutely mind blowing. Its a true shame he isn't going to be making these any time soon, and man am I glad I found a set.

I'm a sucker for a big manifold :p can realy help release power(y)


I'm modifying one to fit my 1.6 (manifold needs re-shaping slightly to fit a 5) but theres a few other jobs happening so it's taking time:oops:

I've seen pictures of this thing somewhere on the internet, does the build thread in your bio detail the dry sump at all? Super interested in learning more about the dry sump setup. Been toying around with the idea of a dry sump lately.

yup, if you've a day (or two?) to read that link you'll see some thoughts on the drysump setup but it's fragmented and probably hard to read as I'm bouncing between many different parts of the car at the same time :oops:
also budget driven as I'm not constantly earning so used parts & no linear progress:(

I've played with drysump on a few rallycars but they were 'off-the-shelf' kits whereas theres nothing available for the Mazda 1.6 (OK, theres alloy sump pans for the 1.8 available from ARE in the US but not here in the UK😕) similarly with the tank / reservoir.

I'm assembling with the pump & reservoir on the exhaust side (UK / RHD passanger) as this allows the reservoir to be in the footwell behind the dashboard - could easily be replicated on the inlet side for LHD.
