Yeah, but $75 a pair isn't much more than two OEM Protege links...

No problem. I doubt you'll be disappointed. They made me a set short enough to properly work on my suspension and maintain proper geometry / pre-load (or lack thereof), because no one else sold a set that would properly work. Didn't charge a dime over regular price :)

Keep it at 10psi Mahk. Past that, you're just making more hot air. Some say 12psi is the mark, but my car seems to run a bit better at 10.

suggestions on a down pipe with a bung for the AF guage, something lighter than the stock piece that is made well (with cat)?

Good work Mahk, if you and Bruce do head down forthe Mitty, it should be a great ime with the Andrew, Phen and Chris at the BBQ place! Looks like we'll be shopping for a Spec Miata this coming spring for the boss....time for her own personal track car.....

Mahk, I'd say just go with the Flyin' Miata piece. Mine (before the cat was cut out) is a very nice looking piece with 2 bungs.

Hoping to get there Marlon. Mark, have you posted that question on Miata.net?
I have not, can you post the info on there for me? I have you and Mark down as a part of Team Ohio. You guys have been with us from the start, so you are taken of if you make it. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks Marlon. But I was refering to Mark's earlier question re downpipe.

Mahk, are you having the little lag issue where the car kinda falls on its face right before it rips your face off?
