    Good luck with that harness once you do get in there. No envy here.

    Restored the headlights today.
    Looks nice!

    Been busy the past week doing work preparatory to MATG. Too lazy to document it all right now. Headed south in the morning, glad that I am able to make it again this year.

    Cool, I've got a bunch of friends who'll be there. Next weekend (Aug 10/11) is the hill climb, so this weekend's all prep for me

    I can't believe you didn't either, since you bombed the rest of the Internet.

    Got home from The Gap around noon after a 5 1/2 hour drive. I have pictures to post once I recover from the festivities. Had a blast, did more driving than last year and did a lot of hanging out with like-minded folks (which to me is a big part of the draw for the event).

    Unfortunately no. I am starting a new job beginning of September and will likely have to get some training before leaving. The wife will be upset if I don't maximize my time at home. I do wish you luck though.

    I'm a bit behind on posting, but that's normal for me.

    At the beginning of this year, the rumors started, that Mazda was going to be releasing a 30th Anniversary Miata and it was going to be a bright color. For those who are not familiar, we*ve owned 7 Miatas (NAs and NBs), raced 6 over the years on both dirt and asphalt and love brightly colored cars. Since the ND Miata was announced and I got to autox one 4 years ago, I*ve loved everything about them but the boring colors. So, come February when Mazda made the 30AE announcement, I got in my pre-order.

    Say hello to 0070:




    Not nearly as practical as my Protege5 was, and way too assertive when it comes to all the technology that was not present in my 16 year old car, but it*s so fun!!


    DD: 30AE Miata

    Autox: Current: CSP in a NB Miata: Oh, this is fun; ES in 2012: Welcome back, it's been a long time; GS in 2011: Spicy FTW, until it goes boom; BS in 2010: RX-8 was fun; HS in 2008: been there, done that; STS: Whee!!!!; ES in 2006
    Rallyx: Current: PR in a NB Miata; PR in 2015: Tired RX-7 is tired, let's switch to an NA Miata instead; MR in 2014: Slideways is the best way in the dirt.

    Ran the Lucky Number 13th running of the Chasing the Dragon Hill Climb in North Carolina this weekend and exceeded even my wildest hopes for what I and the car would be able to do.
    We rolled it off the trailer and on a shakedown / recon lap, it was 2 seconds off class-record pace (127 sec), and would have set the record a couple years ago.
    On Saturday I ran a 124.3. I knew there was probably a little more in it, maybe a high 123, but not much.

    Sunday morning had absolutely perfect conditions, and managed a 121.5, absolutely obliterating the 125.9 record set last year.

    I also may have started hacking away at it like a maniac with an angle grinder and sawzall affliction....



    I figure the engine will likely be in and out a bunch with the upcoming project, so I might as well make it easier on myself and be able to pull the engine and trans straight out the front as a package.
    I cut as much of the upper rad 'support' as I could get away with, without affecting the hood pins and bumper-cover supports and will be making the crash bar a bolt-on piece.

    There's so much room for activities!

    Been a while since I provided an update. Got home mid-July and looked into some things trying to figure out the intermittent CEL I have been getting. Some research showed I never connected the white wire for the wideband gauge lighting to ground as instructions direct so I did that. While I was in there I slotted the upper hole for my Megasquirt mounting bracket to make it easier to get the thing in and out. I also pulled the connection harness between the factory harness and the MS to look for any problems with it but nothing presented.

    A few days later I changed the supercharger oil. I had noted some leakage past the snout seal so wanted to check on how much was left. Strangely enough I got 4 ounces out of it which is what is called for. Combined with the fact that I only had 2 ounces remaining in the bottle the rebuilder sent me, the logical conclusion is that the rebuilder overfilled it. I used some AC/Delco oil I got off Amazon. I had also purchased a replacement ‘charger mounting bracket from FFS to see if there was any difference between it and the original BRP bracket. There was not so I went back to the original bracket. I was able to remove one of the washers I used for a shim to space the ‘charger snout away from the crank.

    I did an oil/filter change, adjusted the center butterfly brace part to give me some more clearance, and adjusted my steering wheel after trying different things to clear the blinking airbag light (unsuccessfully). Thanks to some things coming together I was headed for MATG again this year.

    She gave me some trouble on the way down, again with an intermittent CEL and one time with the battery light coming on after which I was unable to restart her for about 15 minutes (had stopped at a rest area). Other than that she ran pretty well the whole time there. I did more driving this year than last, met new people and reconnected with old friends.







    While there I was talking to a member from another forum and he suggested looking into leaks from the FO injector seals as a cause for my fuel smell under boost. After considering this and other possible problems with the fuel system, when I got home I ordered a new fuel pulsation damper along with some injector O-rings/seals. I did see some leakage from the ‘charger drain/fill plug so ordered a new one of those as well.

    I was driving to the store one night after getting home and heard a clicking noise that sounded like it was coming from the stereo. After some on-the-fly troubleshooting I realized it was happening when I used the clutch. Suspicion was it was the green plug for the upper clutch switch. When I got home I looked and there the old one was in pieces on the floor. Luckily I had an extra from when I was trying to fix my cruise control problem so got that fixed quickly.
