It doesn't really follow the proper recipe for a Scumbag Steve image macro. Let me give you a generalized format:

I'm not arguing in favor of perpetuating memes in general, I'm just suggesting that yours had a memetic defect for this particular species.

also I'm just crapping up this thread with silly pedantry.

Has anyone looked back at the first post in this thread from 2009 and wondered what has happened to Fae? He could compose sentences, organize thoughts, type whole words... what happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Nervous system disorder? Lead paint chips? Vegan diet?

Let's get to the details. I have a 2003 LS Miata with a 6 speed and a Torson. I bought it in 2004 after driving RX8s and WRXs and other sporty cars. This Miata though called to me. I'll tell you all the special story since you are all cat loving ------s as well. Simply- I walked into the dealership and this Miata had just been detailed, but there were fresh cat paw prints all over the car, walking up the hood, over the convertible top, and over the trunk. When I saw that, I knew that was the car for me. And it was. Here's the blingiest pics that I can dig up of it from the good old days, before I -----d it out doriftoing and finally turboing.









When I bought it, it had been very tastefully modded by the PO with that Racing Beat Wing, a stupid style bar, a spiffy radio and mediocre sound system, and the Enkei RS5 which is in my opinion, a much better looking wheel than the 6UL but one RS5 is about as heavy as 2x 6ULs...

I looked at turboeing since day one but I had never turned a wrench on a car before in my life so the intimidation factor made me wait until warranty ran out. What a waste. I burned out the factory clutch a bunch of times and Mazda happily paid for the replacement but I shoulda gotten a ACT.

Driving stock was fun but I remember the moment oh so clearly when while attempting to merge onto a state highway, I couldn't pass an accellerating Toyota Prius. That was such bullshit and plus, almost every single day some dipshit in a much faster car would try to race me. Ugh.

In 2006, I bought and installed a bunch of stuff:

BEGI S5 GT3071 and I'll need your help to figure out the damn trim
Hydra w/ 750cc RC's
KYB AGX w/ FM springs, sways
Enthuza 3" catless midpipe + a catted midpipe that has just sat in the garage doing nothing
6UL's all around
Dual sensor EGT gauge (---- yah IMO)
FM EXTREEEEME Clutch Happy Meal (ACT extreme PP, extreme organic disc, 9lb flywheel)

Couple notes on that stuff:

The BEGI S5 install brought me many tears and despair. After notable injury to my car's frame after sawzalling the ****** with too much zest to get the turbine in, I experienced two busted SS oil lines, dead boost gauges, swapping out wastegate/BOV springs and other etc crappy issues. After several more parts mismatches and hapless neophyte wrenching though , I finally got the kit on the car securely and it's been very good to me for the past 30K miles. The turbo is still spooling, the couplers haven't popped off despite my intake piping being sodden with oil, and the SS lines have proved their sturdiness by sawing through my power steering pump (nothing JB weld couldn't fix ). BEGI has also provided very good and devoted customer service which has been much appreciated. Looking at the kit with some of my current knowledge, I can see that the entire thing was pretty much a custom kit and they did a good job on it.

Hydra is hydra and it's the only EMS I've fucked with and it's neato but the UI is fucktarded. I've seen some other interfaces and they like, work like they weren't coded for some high school project. Whatever. Jeremy in his curt glory is always helpful despite making me feel like I am sounding very stupid. For newb "tuners" like me support with this stuff is very important. One important thing to note-- I'm not sure how powerful the Hydra CPU is. When I last dyno'd I ran out of fuel over 6500 and leaned out. The Hydra caught detonation and retarded. The thing is though, on the street, it never retarded on me in that RPM range. I'm not sure that the CPU has enough hertz available to react quickly enough before engine damage. That closed loop knock detect functionality is good but I am getting a secondary system just for that. Just in case. Knocklite.

The KYB AGXs are OK. For DD they are OK. For performance driving they are meh. I really expected a lot more from them. I would have sold them but resale on them is crap. Shame on you FM for selling such a mediocre shock and spring.

The Enthuza is loud as an Apollo rocket and just about as unpleasant to spend extended periods of time with (likely). Everyone for 5 miles around can hear me coming and this exhaust is probably why only built STIs and Z06's race me nowdays (they win. Not for long though). I have to wear earplugs every single time I drive it and long trips with my GF suck because we have to yell the whole trip to hear each other. Decent work by [email protected] but I really have to put a resonator in the midpipe. The WOT roar and idle is mean as hell though.

6ULs are this shiznit but brake dust destroys the finish. If there's any metal plating specialists out there please shoot me a PM because I'm trying to figure out how I can get a coat of copper plated onto these wheels. DIY style plez so i don't have to pay $200/wheel at a shop. Tarnished copper would look awesome with my paint color.

Yes I love the Dual EGT gauge. It gives me real and useful tuning information and when I WI my car it will be so useful. I have a sensor on #1 and #4. The temperature variance between the two cylinders is never more than 100 degrees. I've only run 12 pounds of boost so maybe with more fuel the whole single feed fuel rail issues would start to show but for now my data indicates no problemo. Of course, I do have a log mani and more accurate numbers would be obtained on a S4 style manifold with individual runners.

The ACT EXXXTREEEEMMEEE clutch and organic disk is the shiznit. I have launched my car way too many times and launched it way too hard and callously each time. This clutch just grabs and grabs and it makes me happy. I've driven it in shitty ----------ing diein-------hell DC traffic (stopgostopgostopgo) for years now and it's about as lovely as a clutch with this torque rating could get. It's never slipped and it's the never gonna give you up never gonna let you down of clutches. Despite the love it will not be able to handle the new torque powah (according to JayL research labs) and I'll be swapping it for a ACT sprung 6 puck.
