So as of today both the rolling zip tie disco and the worlds slowest spooling turbo miata both made positive pressure, didnt overheat, held battery voltage, advanced the variable cam, and rolled down the road under their own power. And I was awake.

I'm moving across country and I think it would be wise of I drive my borg s366 3000 miles this weekend. It has sat for 3 years so surely that means it is well rested and ready to cruise along, behaving like a normal car and not breaking down in kalamazoo because of some ridiculous hideously impractical mod that the owner forcibly made and re-made to the poor once functioning automobile.

I would post a shitty video but the car is full of 3 year old gas and that is excellent for sad sad videos. Will be driving miata tomorrow tho to suss out the car's character and figure out what else I should mod before I leave on friday.

In retrospect I do have to say that I find it strange that I built this car to actually start performing like a real turbo car at around 80mph.

Sad...So sad, this tale of Miata debauchery. When will it end? This is like a Taylor Swift breakup song that was written by John Stamos behind the scenes of full house. First Billy Ray comes out with Achey Breaky Heart. Then, jokes on you America...here's my daughter.
This **** never ends. Are we gonna see the best and fastest Miata ever? Probably not.
Zip ties for the win? Probably not. Scotch ridden sawzall fest? Most likely.
