No idea, these are the ones that came with the car.
According to http://miataturbo.wikidot.com/fuel-injectors they are 265cc or 252@3bar. 195500-2180

Recieved the catch can from Rupewrecht today. Below is a scan of the instructions just to show where Cusco recomend it goes. I might try and put it on the other side.

Picked up my cleaned injectors at lunch time.
I'll get them in on the weekend barring any unforseen problems.

The injectors are in and the engine appears to be running much better. Bit hard to tell though I've only driven it around the local streets and it wasn't running well before I installed the cams.
The cams feel like they want to work over 5,000rpm so next I think I'm going to install the headers so the exhaust breaths a little easier.

How did you get in fitting climate control? Would be really interesting to see it being done successfully!

Wiring is a pain so I've decided to look for a Type-X CPA8P (1.8) front loom. I have a Type-X CBAEP (V6) loom but engine loom plugs are different.

I didn't get the BA off e-bay so I went on a shopping spree.
Ordered brackets for rear calipers to fit 11" disks from Flyin Miata ($89US each side). and a brake bias valve with fittings.
Bought a pair of Mazda 6 rear 11" disks
My QFM A1MR pads arrived.
Waiting on the project mu braded lines to come now and I'm in business.

They move the stock caliper out further, this is what they look like.

They should do the job but I may need to put spacers between them and the hub 'cos the disks are 5mm deeper, I don't know as I don't know if anyone else has used these on a BA. I'll have lots of pics once i've done the conversion.

Ok cool, I thought that must have been what it was, I might have to look into it although I wouldnt be able to use Mazda 6 rotors because mines still 4x100, unless they were custom drilled I guess.

Mx-5 Titanium and SP turbo have the right size disks for 4-stud (276mm). You can also use the factory Mx-5 bracket to re-mount your caliper this is what Rupewrecht and Aaron used for their rears and it should all fit perfectly.
The Mazda 6 disk (280mm) is only because we have 5-stud and I'm not using the Mazda bracket because you need to have the diameter of the Mazda 6 disk reduced slightly to fit correctly.

ok awesome,

I will look into it, I was always under the impression that the SP turbo was 4 stud but had a larger spacing than the BA's 4x100mm. Did Rupe and AAron do it when they went to 5x114? or was this when they were still 4 stud or I guess it doesnt matter really.. I could do it and just get the disks drilled to 4x100 like i mentioned before. Am I on the right track here?

Planning to put a wing badge and Mazda badge on the back and a replica Lantis decal. Not a fan of people who de-badge than vanity plate the make or model and that's what it kinda looks like ATM.

Swapped back to the previous distributor and installed the MazdaSpeed plug leads. I'll take it for a run this arvo and see if the leads make a difference.
