Let us know how the BC's work out. I haven't heard much about them in miata-dom, but I run them on my outback and they are FTW.

If your talking about anything else, they are what came with the car when I bought it. Other than them not being secured, what else do you see thats wrong?

Its running GREAT now. I think the recirculate of the blow off valve and new intake have helped immensly. The car used to fall on its face when driving aggresively and venting to atmosphere. I knew recirculating the bov would help and boy it did!

All of the new powdercoated goodies look good as well.

Oddities found when putting everything back together:
The AVO turbo manifold uses some bizarre Metric studs with super fine threads. Cannot find nuts to thread onto the studs and Ive visited a number of different specialty bolt places.

found that the coolant temp sensor was damaged, and more than likely not working correctly. Replaced it.

Installed a new cover plate for the turbo manifold for aesthetics.

I'm not a fand of the tuperware (bigskirts) but not bad at all.

I would raise it a bit though.
