That's looking great Aidan, thanks for all your work.<br />
<br />
<br />Thanks Martin. Sometimes I feel progress has been slow.
<br />
<br /><br />Guyths I'm getting tired of working on my car. Roll bar installed last night. Oil cooler installed today, still need a new line and install the lines.<br />
<br /><br /><br />
<br /><br />Yank took my downpipe for the repairs. VICS intake Mani set to arrive next Monday.<br />
<br /><br /><br />
<br /><br />Lots of progress on installing the driver seat. What a horrible PITA.<br />
<br /><br /><br />
<br /><br />Also, was anyone else aware that NB2 door cards don't fit NB1 doors? The door latch is in the wrong place. I was incredibly irritated when I discovered this. Looking for black NB1 door cards, but I'm also open to other suggestions/ideas for door cards.

Does the intake manifold still need to be port matched to the throttle body?

I think i would actually enjoy building a board the second time around. Now that i know what is what it wouldn't be so bad.

Don't feel disheartened man, it's all worth it with the end results. I made a checklist of things to do so that I had something to look at and remind myself how close things are getting, keeps the Miata-less blues at bay.

It's in my trunk. When will you have the manifold? I'll trade you. I need to meet up with Aiden this week soon for the vr conditioner he built. I'm getting closer to a kitty spinning on my gauge cluster when I press the gas.

Ed, if I was going to order fittings for the lines between the tank and the NB fuel hardlines (both the feed and return) under the rear deck, what should I order? All I'm looking for is straights, 90s, etc. Fuel filter I've got covered.

<p>For what it's worth, when Josh came over he told me to just re-use the OEM connectors. A quick slice with the razor blade on the molded plastic line and they come right out. He has re-used these connectors on all his previous builds and hasn't had an issue with it yet.</p><p>I am using 226 PSI rated 5/16&quot; fuel hose and worm clamps... even without the worm clamps, I can't friggin' pull the hose off the fitting by hand once I've pushed it on. It's ON there.</p><p>So anyway, if you decide to NOT go that route... you'll need... 5 or 6 90* 5/16&quot; fuel line clips. Part number is in Flounder's thread about it... It's... Dorman PN 800-081.5. You can order them from Summit or Amazon or whatever. I did use one straight connector somewhere too, but you could use a 90 there instead.</p><p>Hope this is clear as mud. I don't have a spreadsheet of it </p>

Do you want to build your own lines or buy pre-made ones?

I like building my own with Earl's perform-o-flex hose and swivel-seal hose ends, although it's not clear if that's technically E85-compatible or not.

I'm not cutting up the factory stuff so yeah, it gives me an idea of what to expect. That's why I pestered you about pics earlier

I was going to roll my own, I'm confident in my ability to not screw that up

Don't want to derail Ed's thread. Carry on guys

It looks like on the feed side I can leave the line in place from the top of the tank to the filter, then make a short line from the filter to the hardline.

For the return side, I just go from the hardline back to the top of the tank. Easy peasy.

The only thing I was really looking for was the angles of the fittings that would be required and where exactly the line needs to run. I think I've got that now so while pics would be helpful, I'm not in dire need.

Yeah you've got the routing right. Super easy really. Don't understand how it took me so long to understand it, ha.

Yep. There's a couple write ups on how to "fix" it on miata.net. General gist of it is that if you straighten the rods a bit you should be able to get enough play to move it to NB2 location. Might need some light drill work. Up to you if you want to do it.

I've got a set of MSM door cards in the garage that I've not been able to fit on my NB1. This is all relevant to my interests.

I'm just going to follow the info on M.net to move the handles. Doesn't sound bad and it's almost free.
