On Saturday registration for the next track day opens, I'm weary of pulling the trigger, because I know I'm just goign to break something between now and then and/or on the track.

And people said building my motor for my modest power goals was pointless.

Sorry to hear it Stein.

Wow. Sorry to hear/see that man, I definitely feel your pain. That's a pretty rough failure. Good luck getting it all back together!

As a sidenote question, can't you be running mostly proper AFRs overall but still be leaner in one cylinder?

for the real ending of the story:

BTW, the rod cap IS a 99 Miata rod cap and it IS off my 99 - but it is the black 99 that is sitting outside waiting for me to put the spare motor in. I foudn the cap in the console when I bought the car so it wasn't TOTALLY a fib!

I hope y'all got a bit of a laugh out of it. To those that saw this thread today, I apologize as I couldn't start it until 10:00 last night until I could get the pic taken but at least the thread was STARTED on 4/1/09.
