Where does the engine ground on the shelf by the downpipe connect to the motor?

Ok cool, thanks.

They've canceled classes for the next two days due to all the flooding. Too bad I don't feel like working on the car outside in the rain, lol.

Too bad I don't drink! But I sure would like to meet up and talk cars. It is always fun to have a chat with another Miata nut, especially a turbo Miata nut. Do you live in easily, but go to school in Columbia? or the other way around?

I live in Columbia, just spend a fair number of weekends in Easley. I work in Gray Court on fridays, so regularly I go back to Easley to hang out with / help friends.

You are correct That was a big portion of the argument here, and part of the decision making when looking at switching cars. If I decide to continue on with the miata (which I likely will), it will most definitely get suspension and sway bars. And then probably a built motor. I really, REALLY, wish I could find a front bumper I like....

I'll just leave this here. But I think age should trump trademark date.

Finally, USC is the real 'SC,' thanks to U.S. Supreme Court - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF-Blog - Yahoo! Sports
