Looks good, you won't regret switching to a 5 speed
I dont know what he wants exactly tho, I told him its one of two things, my lexus es300 or two gibson standard LPs... not both.... hopin for the lexus, I like my guitars.
The guy is one of those old m.net types, but without the crappy style chrome crap they usually get. Miata has just reached 100k, but I dont care im swappin my motor into it that I know works. Original owner, bla bla bla... not telling him what im going to do to it.
Oh man I stopped going to m.net years ago. That thread just reinforces my decision. The whole "MAZDA BUILT THIS CAR THIS WAY FOR A REASON AND SPENT X AMOUNT OF DOLLARS DOING IT, YOU'RE AN IDIOT TO CHANGE IT IT'S PERFECT I LOVE LIFE AND PUPPIES."
So my GF's MSM has developed an exhaust leak....due to a failed manifold gasket. Meaning I need to pull the whole ******* turbo off to replace a $12 part. So I called a local, well-known, shop to get a price on doing the work. They came back with $425. Yeeesh. So I also asked them about doing a timing belt service on her car as well....to wheich they sang a tune of $810 (also stating the the MSM is extra because it has "etra stuff that needs to be moved and worked on"). Not spending $1250+ on all that.
Looks like I'll be spending an entire weekend on her car.
