oh lol

Leo,

I was going to say PM Sav but you're on the ball already.

is the mani/turbo/dp the only thing you'll need to swap to run the other setup? that's not too bad in that case. anything is faster than an n/a miata lol

Welp my new setup is likely not track worthy

and

my old setup has a garrett turbo. which means you will track it 5 times and the CHRA will blow up.

I'll need to swap the whole thing, minus maybe the intercooler. T25 doesn't have an integrated BOV.

I need boost or to get laid. I seriously can't take this anymore. Going home to my 24-pack. Thanks.

my friend suggestion Option Z)
Sell T25 kit
Sell 1.6 engine sitting in garage
Sell old MS2
Sell complete 99 head sitting in garage
Sell other misc ---- lying around

Buy motorcycle. Profit until September.

The only issue I see with that is the fact that it's the worst time of the year to get a bike.

I had both. The bike is 4x more likely to kill you. No joke. Idiots swerving into your lane, cutting you off, tailgating you, etc etc etc.

As much as I wanna say "get a bike", I can't. I sold mine after a co-workers husband got brought home as a bag of bones

I drive a Ford F250. Possibly the safest car I could find. Safe for just me of course.

Savington killed any hope I had of getting another EFR 6258.
So I'll put on my le old T25 kit back on and casually drive the car.

I'll still be on a lookout for another EFR from private parties/ebay but as it stands they are impossible to find. So I'll be driving the ole' journal bearing POS until mid-August (or more realistically, October. because that's how estimates usually work out)

I have a new 6258 that I'd be ok to part with. As things stand, its going to be awhile before I can get my car turboed.

BTW: since my work computer only has shitty IE which doesn't resize, your pictures are sodomizing my screen.

I'm stuck on IE7 at work, and the pictures resize just fine for me. Not until after they load, but they do resize eventually. Once in a while some topic will go beyond the edge of my screen a little, but mostly they work fine.
