The oil line is in 2 sections, and I believe I have an extra that goes from the block to the back of the head, but I don't have an extra back of the head to the actuator line.

While you guys are mixing and matching parts for the block... Turbo Smurfette - Build in progress (slow)

That's the only report I've seen of the threads being different, but its definitely something to check.

Isn't bspp and bspt just different thread tapers. Which won't matter because the copper washer is what seals the banjo bolt anyways?

Not sure I have an extra bolt, but I'm 90% sure I've got the line you need. I'll check tonight and post up

Please do. I could convert to a SS line, but don't necessarily want to if I don't have to. Factory is...factory.

Let me double check the MSM block has the feed hole tapped though too.

Ed not understand meaning of no buy cars. What mean that? Ed buy cars. Ed sell cars. Buy sell buy sell buy buy buy sell. Ed like broken cars.

Possibly Monday .

I doubt I'll have either car back by then. I'm thinking about having him do the Miata first though. I dunno.

I started ordering parts for the S2k. Both rear control arms are en route. Not going to order anything else til I see it.

I'm sortof out of money though, ha. I need to sell a bunch more cars today and tomorrow to hit my bonus so I can buy more parts

I think I used up about 3 years of reserve energy in 1 year during my car project. The thought of buying repairing and selling over and over again makes me physically sick.

I've turned into a sloth.

Yeah. I think it's important to remember that your version of rebuild and my version of rebuild are not the same. Your undercoating insanity? Yeah NOPE. Also, I'm not really going to do any of the major work on this Honda. I'll do the airbags and any other interior work if it needs it but that's it.

Jeff you're like the Martha Stewart of miata building - it has to be exactly how you want it.

See, Ed understand the value of subcontracting. Let other people fix the **** they are good at fixing. Sell for profit.

Same reason I had Curly build my engine. He's done it before. I haven't. He's fast. I'm not.

I think your car ADD is worse than mine. I only hope your SO is as understanding as mine (and even she's confused by how many times I change my plans).

Ha... Well, FWIW I have been waiting for something like this to come along for a while. It wasn't perfect timing in terms of demands on my time but hey, it could have been worse -- at least I had the money since I sold the Fiat.
