We just need a "table of contents" for this thread.
On Man Mode™ the pages are as followed:
1 ------------------T25 poverty build
2 ------------------preparing a new shell for baller parts
3 ------------------crank pulley falls off
4-5 ----------------Baller EFR ****
6-12 ---------------OMFG my turbine wheels keep falling off

The car is sitting in a parking garage. I come by every week or two, start it up and drive around the lot to keep everything working. With cold weather I was also able to adjust the cranking/priming (read: increase by 3 times) values for low temperature. So now it starts up on E85 at near-freezing temps (it doesn't get that cold in Norfolk thanks to the ocean).
I also changed to VA registration on all my cars and I didn't take the miata for inspection yet. Its missing a horn. I have a pair from a 70s cadillac (two of 4-note horns) that I'm going to wire.
1) Flex fuel sensor. I finally ordered one, they are $65 shipped on eBay now. For installation I'll also need two 3/8" push-on EFI fittings to -6AN ($30) and a weatherpack pigtail ($5).
2) I got into the 3.308 rear group buy
3) I bought the Skunk2 throttle body but I must have been drunk when I ordered it, so I accidently got the 94-97 version that doesn't fit my 99 idle control valve. I'm trying to hunt down the missing parts, now.
E85 is glorious and I'm never going back.
I'm also thinking that I might switch to the "normal" wastegate actuator. I want to see how much boost I can get out of it. Right now the range is 15psi-ALLOFIT which corresponds to 300-450whp. If the normal wastegate can bring me to, say, 250-420whp range then I'm ok with it.
I've been wanting to do the Nexus 7 stereo swap myself. I found that the newer 7's have a narrower case, closer to DIN spec (4.5" vs 4.7", D-DIN is 4"x7"). Our DIN is a little bigger than most though, since it has room for that little cross bar between the stereo and the DIN pocket, so it might be a moot point.
They're also thinner and have a smaller battery but a better SOC and more memory. I've got a Snapdragon S4 dual in my Galaxy S3, and I still love it. Didn't see much point in upping to the Galaxy S4.
