Just sell the thing and get a pinto, cause you seem to have no luck with your car. Everyone has different talents, I don't think yours is turning wrenches.

Incorrect.
MOAR BOOST compensates for pretty much everything, including but not limited to, small ***** size.

Just kidding. **** all of you. I am going to make mad power very shortly and am steadily working on my engine bay to make it nice. I don't give a damn if I have setbacks because I'm going to attain my goal and stomp on some **** with my nice ride. I'm also pleased with the advanced of my knowledge and skills so nyah nyah. XOXO

I'd just like to point out that everything you said about me and my turbo miata is 100% true.

Default Happy Time. ?

I fixed my ******* water leak with an unused hose I had. I think that the hose that died croaked because it just aged from heat. It was the water line closest to the manifold.

I put a new turbo blanket on the turbine since the spiffy ebay one disintegrated. Respectably, the seller refunded my money. The one I put on is a DEI volcanic material blanket and I wrapped the downpipe with the same stuff. My girlfriend thinks it looks pretty cool and so do I.

I started it up, the water line did not leak, and I took the car for a drive. The turbo still whined, albeit less loudly than before. I guess removing (I drilled out the pinhole) the restrictor was beneficial. This by the way, was Sean's original idea so he deserves the credit. When I parked and turned the car off, and lo and behold, the compressor spun for about a minute. That is a good sign as it has not been doing that for a while. I popped the filter off and again, behold! The wheel spun freely, the way it is supposed to.

Here's a pic of my bay as it is today. Made a few changes. Can anyone figure out what I did?

You used electrical tape for an AN fitting and crocheted a doily for your turbo.
