    Arrow Mazdspeed Protege #1145 build/ fix log

    Hello all, for the very scarce amount of members still roaming around. I decided to sell MSP 935 after it's back to stock equipment in favor of this cleaner/ less abused car.

    I'm attempting to get this car running/driving by June as I've plans to meet with Mr.323, Philip!

    Couldn't be more excited to find a worthy contender to replace 935 and the white LX.
    So far I have purchased a built block with JDM cam, Corksport FMIC, Corksport 3" Exhaust, Pope 3" downpipe and a few other goodies. I've been working on 4 proteges at the same time and it's a bit frustrating, and also the reason things take too long.

    I've had a bunch of parts powder coated at a local coater RC Hotcoats, someone who I may be going into business with. I might bring back Exile Motorsports. But for now, this is about MSP 1145, appropriately named Exile.

    Sit back and enjoy, pictures are coming soon.
    Be happy!

    This is a slow build lmao.
    Iíve been building my parts supply for this recently.
    -MAM sleeper manifold, new turbo, AN fittings for many different things: coolant/fuel/power steering, auto power roll cage, 505 V3 Intake manifold,etc.
    I sold my Pope DP in favor of building a v-band flange exhaust since my turbo is v-band. If you follow my Instagram you can see pics of these things. Iíll try and get some up here.

    This car build has taken a major step forward thanks in part, to 323.

    Pics in a few weeks!

    Thought I*d share something.. it*s been a few months and while there haven*t been any real updates, things are happening.

    I had the radiator AN connections welded on -16AN. There*s 2 on the rad, and one on the t-stat housing, one on the coolant housing. Need to have some things powder coated.

    One thing I*m really excited about is....

    Yesterday I got delivery of a CX Racing EVO FMIC core. My Corksport core got a little messed up and I've always loved the Evo front end. It's big.
    Also purchased a Hydra Motorsports lightweight crank pulley, so waiting on that.

    Also, this build is taking forever, I know.. but I also just welcomed my first child, Lucy Anne to this world. Philip(323) is coming by next weekend to hang, so I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures to show up here!
