its been windy lately though....

Mark you going to the event this sunday? I'll probably swing by for a bit just for some photos and a passenger pass if you have the miata. AND to show you my new setup lol.


Got a fair amount done today though.... sorry for the crappy pics for some reason my phone doesn't like me :\







got the old setup torn down (YUP oil in the intake) painted the manifold and damn it I'm happy with my welding for being my first time. Good clearance, got the AC removed along with the fan, the manifold threads enlarged and helicoiled for 3/8" and got the whole setup test fitted. gonna work on routing coolant, oil and vacuum and boost (charge pipes) lines tomorrow and whatever else I need to get done. OH right, drill the hole in the oil pan, get the gaskets changed along with the oil and build the exhaust.

Got a better deal on exhaust tubing too... 16 feet of 2.5" for about $30
