Cresta Tech Q&A

We answer some of the top tech questions about the Cresta Questions by Mighty Car Mods Fans; Answers by Turbo Yoda & Marty Why Cresta? We bought the car from Mr Sato a while back as it seemed more fitting to cruise through Japan in that thing than in a hire car. How could you import a Cresta but not the Mira ? The Mira is an early 90’s model, the Cresta is from 1985, and in Australia it has to be Pre-88 to import it whole. Why Barra? The later (FG) engines are strong and well built and can make..  - Read More

NB MX5 Supercharger Install

Almost a year ago, this black NB MX5 and a Centrifugal Supercharger kit ended up in our shed one hot summers sunday. The instructions looked quite straight forward, and unlike our Supercharged Mini Build, this particular kit would be a straight bolt in. It came with bigger injectors as well as an interceptor box to increase fuel delivery. Installation involved removing the airbox, and repositioning the power steering pump. The kit comes with a large aluminium bracket that holds the supercharger itself, as well as the two tensioners that route the new drive belt around the other accessories. The belt..  - Read More

Auto Headlight Off Diagram

The basic idea? Intercept the wire that activates the headlights. Most modern cars have relays closer to the battery that send the power directly from the battery to the lights, and the signal wire comes down from the switch. The little white rectangle with the strike through it is important, thats the coil. Its the circuit that you can activate with a small current, which magnetically pulls the switch for the large current. Once you get your head around the way that works, there are a number of ways you can use relays. Another good tip is, if you have..  - Read More

Big skids are better skids.. especially in Supergramps

Mechanical Stig and I were discussing Subaru's on Saturday morning and he mentioned the WRX club were doing a skid pan event the following day. I checked my calendar and after confirming i had no important jobs that required a practical wagon, I signed up. Like most motorsport, it started early - so i dragged myself out of bed and headed down to Sydney Motorsport Park. It's spring in the southern hemisphere so it's sunny but the air is cold, and after half an hour or so, the concrete surface is wet and ready to go. Drivers briefing involves handing..  - Read More
