UPS man showed up today!

I am now just waiting on my freshly reinforced S4 manifold from Corky and my MS2 from Dimitiris.... and a weekend free.





No ricer tip needed....



I wanted to not kill all the kittens, so I got a cat on it...

Since the older design S4 manifolds are known to crack, I had a conversation with Corky and Steph- they made some "adjustments" to mine.

Pretty? No
Light? No
Rugged? Yes







Just waiting for the box with the scooper and this manifold along with my MS that should be built this week from Dimitris.

Oh wow that's really cool. I would have done the same thing if I kept it.

Ok- I "think" I have all of the parts to start my build. Got the MS2E last week.

I need to finish up a couple of little things on my BMW 540/6 to be ready to park the miata in the garage for a while. This thread should start getting some regular updates.
