I'll get you an *** end shot Justin. Yeah Vlad, I'm keeping an on the afr and it seems to be all good. I still don't think a Miata should ever go that fast but whateveas lol. I kind of don't want to build the rest of the exhaust, I like it loud. Maybe I'll get a cut out.

Thanks Troy, I am very happy how it came out. I wanted to go to Miatas at Laguna but as of right now there is no muffler on the car. So I would get black flagged for noise right out of the pits. And we still have some tuning to do, but hopefully pretty soon.

Here is that rear end shot for you guys. I got bored yesterday evening so I drove to San Francisco. Been 3 years since I've driven that car there. Had fun, there are zero e85 stations there though. Oakland has one though. Some douche in a Mustang GT tried to play with me on the freeway. He got rolled. Also, I didn't get enough piping to put the big magnaflow on there but I did get a smaller one made up.

At the car show. My boss let me take his 65 Vette.

And the muffler.


And a couple pull videos, trying to be like everyone else and do it while holding the steering wheel. First one I hit the limiter and lifted cause there was a car coming. Didn't want any trouble from the CHiPers. Second one I granny shifted.

You edited the license plate in 1 pic but not the other lol, fail.

That "small" muffler looks like it will barely cut the noise down at all. Did it actually make a difference?

When you coming back down?

lol I noticed that, thats why I put the original un resized one back up. **** it. Loading the videos on YouTube right now so they are easier to view. That muffler actually quieted it down quite a bit, you can talk inside without yelling. I can hear my throw out bearing now, and it's already crapping out... So, motor will probably be coming out soon so I can change that then I will be coming back up.

Went for a little drive at lunch after changing the oil. Came back with 4th gear lol. I didn't think it would lose 1,2,3, and 5. Oh well. Now I can change the throw out bearing too... yay

Brake boosting in 3rd, when I got off the brake pedal it went boom. So I went to 4th, everything was good. Went to 5th, nothing. So I tried 1,2,3 and nothing there either. I wonder if reverse is gone too lol.

I was hoping to see more destruction inside of the thing. I have never been into a transmission mainly because I just never wanted to take one apart. So this is just me guessing, is that the gear the turns the 1,2,3,5 and R cluster? And did 4th survive because its 1:1 ratio and is its own gear?

I also found the source of my oil leak, damn CAS o-ring. Thing was making a mess.

And a shot of the turbine wheel and inside of the downpipe. Surprisingly the churbo has the same amount of shaft play as it had when it was new. It isn't blowing any oil and my charge pipes are still nice and clean. Not bad for 80 bucks.

4th is a basically a straight shot through the transmission, hence the 1:1 ratio. Mine currently whines in 1,2,3, and 5. 4th is silent. I have no doubt that one day I'll be driving home from a track day in nothing but 4th.

If I can get a 6 speed with the driveshaft and shifter for a good price then I would do that for sure.

When you put the nitrous on there, you are going to need a mountain of transmissions.

Dammit, don't tell me that! lol since the engine and transmission is out I fixed the leaky CAS o ring, flushed the brake and clutch system and replaced the leaky brake master cylinder. I flushed the systems and am opting to go with DOT 5 silicone brake fluid so it doesn't eat my paint. Going to try and address my LS coils not working and a few other things. Hopefully have it up and running again in a few days.

Car has between 110 and 125 pounds of compression. I have not done a leak down yet. ****. It doesn't smoke and still runs really good other than it is SUPER rich. I wonder if my rings did not seat properly? Any guesses?

Alright, my scare is over. I rechecked compression, everything was good. Did a leak down, everything checked out there but I still couldn't figure it out. And then I finally heard it, a hissing noise coming from one of my vacuum lines in the car. Replaced the line, everything is running smooth again. I was very worried.

Anyways, playing with a "stage 2" Subaru, I was in 2nd.
