    That is still up for much debate. If my foot is okay to drive the miata, I actually will be dropping off my wife at JFK on the 16th and then continuing down to NC for a few days.

    I go for a follow up on my foot on the 3rd to see how its healing. Really hoping I can at least get behind the wheel of a manual soon. Otherwise if I cant drive down to NC I will be at LRP, but not in the miata of course.

    Looks like I'll be at LRP in my miata! Went for follow up on my foot today and I'm healing well. Should be out of the boot in 2 weeks and I start light weight bearing on the 8th. Still will be using crutches though til end of the month. Can't see the value of driving to NC to hang with a friend if Im not fully mobile so I will wait until later in the year to make my trip down there.

    It's been so long since LRP. There is a miata/mazda corral I just drive myself into, right??

    Congrats Mark.

    New job is going great, really like it and the people so far. Main driver hurt his knee so I'm the main driver now.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at LRP. Need to get Mia cleaned up and ready, another autox Sunday, not getting much road time these days as I use the Focus for work.

    Got the rest of the motor torn down. Itíll be a few weeks before we get it back from the machine shop. Found a local guy who has a customer trying to boost a 4AGE, which has turned into a number of rebuilds, so he is familiar with it. Heís going to tear our motor down and give me an estimate for basic rebuild and if that isnít too much, Iíll have him massage the ports a bit and maybe deck the head to increase compression a little...nothing crazy though because we still want to use the factory ECU.

    All this soot is from leaking fuel injector seals.



    The T-VIS system needs some cleaning. Toyotaís version of Vtech keeps one of the two intake ports closed until 4,000 RPM. It looks like this was working, but itís just filthy from the engine burning oil and the EGR system pumping that soot back through the intake.



    Trans separated, definitely needs a clutch, the previous owner threw in a new one along with a light weight flywheel.



    Off to the shop, itís nice having a pickup truck





    While we wait, weíre going to clean up all the parts that came off.

    Everyone!

    It is with the heaviest of hearts that I must announce that the last protege in the group is done with daily driver service.
    Alternator believed to be not working (battery not charging), clutch hydraulics are gone and needs lots of pedal pumping to get into gear. Not worth spending money on it to keep as a daily so itll be down while I keep driving miata during summer/fall.
    This does not mean the p5 is going anywhere though!! Still staying with me, just won't be a daily any longer. Bought it July 2009 and retiring July 2019 with 247k (173k done by me). Two drives across the country and countless memories behind the wheel of it.
