    I should be re-rolling my front passenger fender, and rolling the rest. Why re-rolling you may ask? My co-driver last weekend managed to slide the car over a cone that got caught between the tire and the fender, so instead of having a lip like this 'L' it's just like this '|' for about 3 inches at the top of the fender arch lol

    Also ordered a few parts for the tranny I've got sitting in my storage closet....
    Clutch Disc B630-16-460 *
    Release Collar B622-16-510 *
    Clutch Pilot Bearing F801-11-303 *
    Pressure Plate B622-16-410 *
    Shifter Dust Boot M514-17-475

    Hello State tax refund! Goodbye State tax refund . It's ok, I'll get to keep my federal refund! Oh wait...good seat sliders (using stockers right now), harness and a roll bar. Shit. There went that one too

    Moving forward slow and steady. Relief cuts have been made in the mani. Now it's getting roughly port matched with the old exhaust mani gasket. There are area's of up to a 2mm overlap when overlaying the gasket. The oil return line is in. It is amazing how made for a turbo these cars are. The oil return on the block is a rubber plug that must be removed and the oil feed is a little plug too.

    What manifold is that? It looks similar to the GReddy knock off that I have on the challenge car. There is/was lots of overlap on the mating surface.

    Well, put in some NGK blue wires and NGK plugs in yesterday. Car runs smoother now. Those stock wires and plugs had gone baaaad.

    Trying to get a used Greddy kit off miata.net but I think I was beaten to the punch.

    Here's me pre- Azenis


    I was going to do an autocross last weekend but Velocifero came in town and kept me up and boozin'. That's my excuse. I had too much work shit to do anyway on Saturday.

    Next logical step is a proper alignment and install the new brake pads, but I do want turbooooo.

    It is the greddy manifold. Lots and lots of casting overlap. Do you have the ETD manifold? It is a stainless greddy knock off.

    I installed some door speakers and some new headrest speakers & put the extra MSP amp/sub setup in the trunk. Other than that...nothing.

    The manifold I have looks identical to the cast GReddy unit, without the GReddy logo. 'twas an ebay Chinese knockoff.

    I have the factory Panasonic tape deck ca. 1990 in mine. And 2 half blown speakers. I'm not sure if they're original or not. (Doubt it since my car just rolled over 197K.) Fat beats for the w1n! I do plug in my iPod through a cassette adapter sometimes, but I'm more likely to wear my headphones.

    I know I know....

    Plus I have to pull them out when I see cops. Which is distracting.

    I would like to do the headrest speaker thing eventually. I like my beats. Half the reason I sold my motorcycle and bought a Miata.

    As much as I want to disagree with you guys about the audio thing, I just can't bring myself to remove the radio system from my Miata, hehe. Having a few tunes while driving helps, and if right, can set the pace for the event to which I'm driving .

    I'll take it out one of these days.

    More work. Port matching done along with a good cleaning. Bolted and torqued on with oil feed and return plumbed.

    If I may ask, where is that drain line going (or is it just sitting there)? Looking good so far. If only these things stayed this clean forever.

    picked up some team dynamics pro race 1's, 15x7's 35mm offset wrapped in some toyo RA1's for the track

    fabricated a bracket to hang my camera from the windshield to videotape my driving skeeeelz.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.

    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you.
