AWR is the answer.

1.6 and 1.8 AWR mounts are not interchangeable right? Otherwise I probably would. Or I'll build my own sometime.

I'm pretty certain that they are not interchangeable. You are correct.

AWR+ 6spd = magic.

All in due time. I'm not sure if it feels like the 6 speed moves more or if its just harder to shift when it moves around. I haven't even really pushed it yet because it only has 3 driveshaft bolts right now.

6 speed is kind of notchy, but the shifter is better than any miata 5spd.

I'm pretty stoked to have the 6 speed now. One less thing to worry about.

Picked up a new air filter from yank after hearing a story about a car on the dyno eating a cheap filter. AEM Dryflow 21-2011DK. 2.5 inch inlet.

<p>Wooooo!! My work unblocked mt.net. Back to useless rambling all day!</p><p>I need to get everything done tonight and tomorrow night and be pretty much completely ready for thunderhill. Thursday and Friday are going to be full of other things.</p><p>To Do:</p><p>1. Buy 1.6 el chepo vatozone pads.</p><p>2. Swap to 1.8 brakes up front, and cheap pads all around</p><p>3. Clean wheels really well so that I won't ruin them if I drive in rain the next few days.</p><p>4. Add 3rd driveshaft bolt</p><p>5. Miataroadster shifter bushing should be here today or tomorrow, so install that (Ed you can have your shifter back now. I used it twice...)</p><p>6. Pack all my tools and spares.</p><p>7. Build everyones GPS units and maybe get them shipped.</p><p>8. Maybe play with building more ducting. But probably will be too lazy for that.</p><p>If I can do all that in 2 days I will be one happy camper.</p>

Brakes done. No pictures cuz I was supposed to be at dinner an hour ago. Didn't trim the sheild enough so there is a ridiculously annoying squeal. It should self clearance eventually. Holy ******* *****. The 6 speed brought my car back to life. 5 speed+3.9+200hp=massive **** suckage. 6 speed+3.9+200hp=***** deep goodness.

Sucks for autoxing though, because you're constantly shifting between 2nd and 3rd.

6-speed + 3.636 + 350 rwhp FTW.

Might be true. But now that I have a 6 speed I hate how slow the 5 speed felt.
