    I did it again!




    On purchase in October 2012:
    2005 MSM
    37,100 miles, no rust
    - FM boost gauge
    - FM intake
    - FM full exhaust
    - FM sway bars
    - Hard Dog roll bar
    - 2 stage seat heaters (and boy do they work!)
    - hard wiring in place for the Passport radar detector I already have
    - added cruise control done cleanly and works solid
    - hard wired mini USB cord (no more 12v splitter needed!)
    - Brand new blizzak tires (already swapped on the S.Drives on my 99's OEM rims that the dealer let me keep, traded it in with the steelies on)
    - OEM front nose leather mask that the dealer didn't even realize was stowed away

    Added in January 2013:
    - 27x7x2.5 ebay FMIC
    - FM O2 mod (marginally better)

    Ordered February 2013:
    - Hydra
    - FM2 conversion
    - Crossflow radiator
    - FM Stage2 Fan kit
    - 180F thermostat
    - 225/45/15 Hankook R-S3s (for track, not daily)

    Pending orders for:
    - bronze 15x9 6ULs
    - 3.63 rear gear
    - FM clutch and 10.3lb flywheel
    - Mocal laminar flow oil to water heat exchanger w/ FM oil filter relocation (i will need most of that kit for the lines and adapters anyway)
    - Mahk's 16x7 RPF1s

    Will be tuned by Agile Auto just north of Baltimore MD. They are a vendor for the Subbie's Hydra, and have extensive experience with it and Mazdas. They also sponsor my best friend's car, so I support that sponsorship. They will be doing the install of the drivetrain stuff because I have no desire to pull a transmission for the 4th time in 18 months. Probably the oil cooling as well.

    Speaking of paint, throw a coat on the garage walls. Your neighbor is one-upping you.

    Front license plate bracket was removed. Autodimming mirror appears to have fried at some point during removal from the 99. It won't power on any more. I see what is so special about the MSM's mirrors though, definitely holding onto that safely once I find a replacement auto-dimmer.

    Also think I might be over-boosting in the cold, but not really sure yet. Can't read the boost gauge at night (red needle on red lit white background at night takes too much concentration to see). Haven't figured how to turn down the boost a bit. Found the MBC, but have conflicting information on which way is down and which is up.


    Money shot:

    Went for a drive with my wife and the puppy, and took a few more pics with the fall colors. Some color correction embellishment of course.


    (Go ahead, comment on the yellowing center caps on the 99's OEM wheels Least of my problems with the 99, will be addressed now however)





    No correction on these:
