The ones I have will not fit, they are the ones you said you didn't want in post #2554. Sorry =(

I'll just throw them in the box with Aiden's intercooler when I get around to shipping it. I'm sure he'll take them.

I wouldn't try that if it were my motor.

IGN1A race coils are beast, and 68 dollars each. I'm running .034" gap at 30 PSI without any problem at 6ms dwell.
The ones I tested didn't self-discharge even at 2-3x the saturation time.

It's easy to enough to test using diag mode on the MS3 and an oscilloscope.

Seriously annoyed with this singular brackets. The coils that Pat posted won't work with the brackets either.

What about any MSD coil equivalent?

Ed what's your dwell? We can check pricing at AR for you too. Just gotta wait till Monday. I know my replacement was a "genuine" oem unit, still eBay I think, for around $25 or $30+ shipping.

Is that savs? I really should have bought that. I grabbed his oil cooler. Final piece to the puzzle would be Theasus' intercooler sitting below it in my NA.

Ha, I'll have another spare 6-speed once Richard's drivetrain goes in my NB.

Ever get the boost controller working?

Yes, we did. And then the engine didn't like the boost.

The valve cover came off that night, and should be back this evening. Then we will see.

Serious conversation time.

Mazda has just released a new program for sales reps where they'll pay $75/mo towards a lease payment of my choice, and once I hit 3 years tenure with Mazda (which happens Feb 2017) they kick it up to $150/mo.

In addition, I can lease a new ND for roughly $3500 off MSRP.

Can somebody please tell me any good reason why I shouldn't do this? Will be placing an order for a Club w/o BBS pkg in ceramic otherwise....

I'd do that in a heartbeat, especially if you're going with the club.

False, there is a great reason.

You don't have any more parking spaces.

Minor problem. Plus I can always start parking sports cars at your house, right?
