    The DD MS3

    Windshield shade came in. I’m pretty happy with it as it’s really firm and not floppy at all. Perfect fit too. Not bad for about $36.

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    The Twist Lok hose arrived yesterday. The internet is correct when they said the hose is nearly impossible to push onto the fitting without oiling both the fitting and hose then heating up the hose. On my first try, I only heated up the hose for about 20 seconds and it was almost impossible for...

    Remember how you planned on installing gauges on November 18 of 2018? 😂

    MP3 / MSP Swap Build

    That's quite a spacious workspace. How's that ebay turbo manifold working out for you?

    Protege Turbo

    A great place to start is by sourcing parts from a 03 mazdaspeed protege. The Mazdaspeed protege section of the forum has plenty of threads going over the parts and process of turboing a protege 🙂

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    Well I bought it used. To my untrained eyes, I failed to see that there were cracks before ceramic coating it and installing it. Shortly after, the leak revealed itself. I searched around and found that others with this early version of the manifold experienced the same thing and had to get it...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    Finally decided to drop off the steedspeed manifold to a friend last week that does welding on the side. He ended up not being able to properly sand down runners #2 and #3. I took it back to tackle that task before returning it which I ended up doing tonight. Filing and sanding off ceramic...

    For those of you still with me, yes one of my AN line/hoses failed again. It seems the end closest or on the engine only lasts a good 6-12 months before the heat cycle compromises the hose allowing oil to seep passed hose and out of the fitting. I'm pretty over it and not a fan of working with...

    MSP5 Conversion Project

    Totally different location from what I remember. Although the seat area doesn't move much anyway. No can do on the fabric as I think the split of the seats are different. You have a sedan and a P5 and can verify. I can no longer do that lol.

    The DD MS3

    Nah, car will stay as is and just be maintained to my standards :). I'll keep driving it like an old man so nothing ever breaks.

    The DD MS3

    Washed it and dusted the inside yesterday. Cleaned the hell out of the door jambs. I think it's the first time I made the effort to and it was pretty filthy. While wiping things down, I found the mazdaspeed plate on the door sills came off pretty easily and the double side tape has failed so...
