    There is a spicy for sale locally with the engine removed for $2,000. Belonged to a friend of mine prior to this guy and have worked on the car with it's previous owners as well. Would never pay $2,000 for it, but I'll let it wait a while, when it gets to $1,000 I might contact him. My old spicy is currently for sale for $7,000 LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL And there is s titanium ~100 miles away for $2000 with a broken timing belt, all stock. I'm eyeing these because I want to possibly trade the Miata for one.

    More than likely is the intercooler heat soaking and the stock tune. These cars run like crap on the stock ECU. I highly doubt 'higher quality' coils are going to make a difference, just my personal opinion.

    It’s not heat soak, I’ve had turbo charged cars before, it’s not heat soak, I am leaning towards a fuel issue, since I have verified spark and air.

    As far as the tune, what do you recommend to fix that?

    My true recommendation is a standalone EMS, but the more common and easier to install fix, (yet still leaves a lot to be desired) is the Split Second Air Fuel Controller.

    Just to follow up, Took it to a friend who is a great mechanic. (a real mechanic and not one of those change the oil and oversell you on shocks/brakes "mechanic") and after 2 seconds he looked at the Fuel injection Pressure damper, which the screw was loose on top, like backed all the way out, He tightened it up, and it seems like everything is hunky dory, I need to do a lot more testing, but so far so good. But the screw is starting to back itself out again, so buying a replacement part.... $80 from rock auto.

    don't really know too much about what to look for on a used clutch. this is the original clutch off of my msp with 125k miles on it. thinking about keeping it around as a spare for the beater p5 since i most likely won't sell for much anyway. does it still look good? i'll take more pictures if needed.

    With that many miles it's not really worth keeping. Personally I would never use a used clutch, especially considering how much work it is to pull the trans.

    Put the BCs on a few weeks ago, taking it to get aligned tomorrow. Car handles great and the steering is extremely sensitive and responsive to inputs. It rides pretty rough but it looks great. Haven't done much else other than that, looking for an ECU extension harness to ease the microtech installation.

    Not today, but over the weekend, I put on new front control arms, and new sway bar links front and back. Still have a clunk in the front to chase down and need new suspension stuff in the back since all the bushings are shot. (az heat trashes the rubber bushings). But overall the clunks are massively reduced! also started the process of changing over my vacuum lines to green silicon, looks so much better, but my stubby fingers don't make it easy. but it will be an ongoing process, every now and then when I get the urge, I'll swap out another line.

    Also looking at getting my clutch replaced. I asked for suggestions on the FB group, but got recommendations that start at $500... yeah not paying that much for a clutch. I just don't have the money for it...

    Haha, no. I will see what my options are with my mechanic. Swapping a clutch I just don’t have time for. I can drop it off Thursday night and pick it up Friday afternoon (I work from home fridays). Where if I did it myself I have no idea if I will be done in time for Monday. I have never swapped a clutch, and so it’s a big learning curve to do it myself.
