I'm using water only, and no I have no equipment.

No water wetter? That tends to keep your coolant temps a little bit lower. My guess is that using just water is creating too much pressure. Try adding a bottle of water wetter and see how things go.

OMFG, my boss is going to make me hang myself. On alternating months he requests a report that he determines "you've been doing it wrong all along and must change everything!!!" every time. Access reports are also "confusing" and 25 spreadsheets (literally) is easier to understand.

+1. Using just water is going to net you higher pressures in your cooling system.

Super rare Miata Type-R

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hn...010809823.html



EDIT: God damn people suck at craigslisting. Half the car ads say "X car for sale. Contact for details". Or, they type them in all caps, like this fellow here:
http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ra...009022467.html

OR they ask retarded amounts of money:

So I lost my license plate and inspection sticker on the highway coming back from school on my bike. I doubt I will be able to find nor do I want to go look.

What should I do...

Just go to DMV and tell them you lost it. Pay a fee to get it replaced. Carry on.

Rider, we just had a 1990 Miata with 160K on the clock go for over $10K at the dealer a couple months ago......

I have a phone interview Thursday at 9am. I am happy I might actually find a job, but sad that I have to be up at 9am.

On another positive note my bottom end is back together. Now just waiting for the damn machine shop to get me back my head.
