My '90 transmission at ~180k miles never gave up on me. Held up over a year at 200-240wtq. Anything can happen, but unless you're really ragging on it I wouldn't expect any issues.

Waits for PM. la la ala al al ala
Well if you have two then screw it, run with it. If you break one then put in other and buy a six speed.

If you want to get into EMS tuning then I recommend reading around in the megasquirt section here and elsewhere as much as possible.

Also get a knock sensor.

My car doesn't have a stock knock sensor? I guess i'm noob.

I'll post more pics when someone sells me a front sway bar, and builds me a PNP MS.

The only worm clamps are on that filter. The rest are all T bolt clamps.

I'm accepting donations.

Anyone know if that IAT sensor should go in any further? Looks right, but i don't want to force it all the in if it can't go.

Still waiting for WARMTH so i can start doing some wiring without breaking fingers.

They leak.

They fall apart

They don't provide equal squishing around the thing they are squishing.

Amazon Amazon

I'm helping.

Seriously, what he said. Those clamps will eat your hose and cause them to leak. I had to chase down one of those leaks to the 2" piece of hose between the collector and fuel pump in the tank. Never again.

Be sure to get the right clamps, they're very sensitive to what size they fit over. They won't go any bigger or any smaller than the advertised size.

Anyone else feel like the thread title is misleading?

Anyway nice build. I should document my build too. Car is going under the knife shortly.

Stock fuel system, wastegate pressure, no intercooler, will be tuned conservatively.

The title fits.

What door bars are these. This is exactly what I am looking for!!!!!!!


Looking at this build thread it makes me wish I just built my bp and bought a kit. Everything works and you don't have to make any parts. I love the simple clean look of this car. Keep the picture book coming.

You can get them from here:
http://949racing.com/hard-dog-bolt-i...-97-miata.aspx

Or here for the ones in the particular one in the pic above:
http://www.gomiata.com/bofrmifridob.html

Or probably some other places too. A member here builds them in 10's or something every once and a while for a group buy, but I can't remember who though. I'd do a search if your interested.
