I used the green conector at first but I am changing it to use the black conector. I am going to get a miata temp gauge sensor and put it in my toyota cooling system somewhere and run a wire to the factory connector.

Is there a specific name for the temp sensor I need to run the gauge so I don't go buy the wrong one? Also is one of the sensors single wire and the other two wire or are the both the same.

The single wire on the back of the head is for the dash gauge. The 2-wire on the back of the head is for the ecu. The single wire on the front of the engine turns on the fans and is NOT connected to the ecu or gauge

Ok I will get a single sensor and put it into the toyota cooling system and that will work the gauge sweet.

Ok I think I have all my wiring straight but the car is going to slow down for a little while because they have asked me to work 7 days a week for the next 2 months. This is good and bad. Bad news is I won't have lots of time to work on the car. Good news is the extra $700 a paycheck gives me the money to buy some wheels. I need your guys opinion on this set of wheel I really like them but I am going to try and fit them without flares is it possible. I do not mind streatching a tire a little bit but not a whole lot. They are 15X8 0 Offset in the back and 15X7 15 offset in the front do you think I can get them to fit with a fender roll and a minor pull. Here is the link to the wheels.

honestly, save up and get some 6uls. I know most people on here run them, and theres a reason. There the best size, lightest weight, legit wheel for the price. Youll have a hard time fitting a decent tire with 0 offset on the back.

For the power hes going to be putting down, the heavier wheels may be a better choice

I was kinda thinking the same thing weight is not going to hurt me I will most likely end up putting 150# or so of lead in the back anyway. Question is more can I make them fit with out flares with a minor pull and roll.

Check over at cr.net. Someone is probably running the same setup.

If I get some flares I will run 15X8 all the way around. I really like the way staggared wheels look and I do not see my self getting any great leaps in traction with a half inch of tire I could gain with a +35 offset. I am thinking more along the lines of they look good and get a decent size tire on them.

Leatherface24 - I plan on keep the car for a long time and I also see myself changing it alot along the way. I do plan to beat on it a little but for the most part it will be a street car so I do not see the beatings being that bad but I could be wrong.

You could run 15x8's all day on miata without flaring it. You can even run 15x9's with a right offset.

Yea I am trying to to get as wide a stance as I possibly can. I want to run a low offset my car is low and I plan on keeping it that way I have always wanted the stance to be wider and would like to do it without flares but I see myself needing them.

You are the man I am pretty sure I am going to need to borrow it in a few weeks this is the look I am going for give or take a little. I think I am going to go with 15 or 16X8 0 offset in the rear and 15 or 16X7 + 10 or +15 in the front.

These are 16X8 0 offset all the way around with 205/40R16 I no this is a NB but you get the idea.

I am positive I can get a 15X8 0 offset on the back of an NA I just need to make the car belive I can. With a fender roller and some effort they will look nasty.

NP.

I would recomend more tire out back. Althought the look is cool you will be putting down a good amount of power...you will need more tire back there.

I think I just answered my own question here is a set of 15X8 0 offset on a NA all the way around with a fender roll and light pull I know what wheels I am going to buy.

MicaCeli - I'm gonna hit you up in a few weeks to borrow that fender roller if that cool. I'm gonna need it.
