1) I did not need the later MAP sensor, but I had one that came on the new motor, it matched the plug on the harness and the S2000 one was broken.

2) This is a Miata trans, clutch shift fork and release bearing. The only S2000 part is the inlet manifold.

You've got to forgive me, I get befuddled easily in my old age, which started at about age 30.

Graham,
Nice build!
I was looking at your pics, and saw the clearance problem with the TB. :idea: Have you considered rotating the TB? You will probably have to build an adapter plate, but that would not be difficult, and it may solve that clearance problem.

I finally got the car to a well respected local dyno operator. He did not like my air filter setup, said the tubes were to restrictive, I will re-create the setup he used next week. Here is a link to the final dyno pull, I will post the actual dyno print when he send it to me. But the answer is 206 rwbhp, very coll for a bone stock engine.

Haven't read this thread for awhile. You've had quite the tussle with this little beastie!
Cheers on a great job and actually seeing it to the end. Perhaps you should tie that clutch fork to the back of your car with a chain and drag it around. Or smelt it or something...

Congrats! :cheers:

It sounds so much better then any K series I've heard. What did you do differently? I didn't hear any rasp at all.

Here is the exhaust setup I am using, there are a lot more plates in the Supertrap from when this mock up picture was taken. The first thing is just a resonator, there is also a Vortex cone before the muffler.
