Catching up...


Well... i made it.

Depowered the MSM rack and added Miataroadster Delrin Bushings. Because i'm an NVH Hero.
Depowering MSM steering rack and Miataroadster delrin bushings by concealer404, on Flickr

New PPF hardware, axle, wipers, and a silly amp interface thing i didn't get around to installing.
20150715_184419 by concealer404, on Flickr

New-to-me spindles. Came off an 03 so i don't have to do silly modifications to the shields to fit over sport brakes. Bonus!
20150716_105249 by concealer404, on Flickr

Mechanic Kitty approves. (Stray we feed.)

You're not being helpful, cat.
20150716_105621 by concealer404, on Flickr

Step 1 of re-route, remove valve cover and be very pleasantly surprised by the state of the motor. Me gusta.
20150716_113543 by concealer404, on Flickr

Step 2: Remove THIS ******* thing.
20150716_130033 by concealer404, on Flickr

Step 3: Assemble this thing with a new Stant Superstat. I did 180F. I think that may have been a mistake. More on this later.
20150716_134758 by concealer404, on Flickr

Step 4: Realize that most of the gasket had been left on this stupid face. Drown your rage in alcohol.
20150716_151445 by concealer404, on Flickr

Step 5: Install, and realize that your spacer is a couple mm too thin and getting a hose past that line nipple thing on the head is ******* impossible. Rage enough to get the hose past enough, then install your clamp on there ****-eyed and hope you got it tight enough, realizing that this is not an acceptable solution for track work, so rage again that you paid money for this and gave away your old spacer.

Resulting question: How far can i shave down that nipple?

Took a break from annoying things to remove EGR. This was much easy.
20150716_154736 by concealer404, on Flickr

Back to the re-route. Realize that to remove the water neck, you have to pretty much do a timing belt job that i was trying to avoid, anyways. Rage some more.
20150716_161452 by concealer404, on Flickr

Remove that **** and pound a plug in.
20150716_162228 by concealer404, on Flickr

20150716_162524 by concealer404, on Flickr

Realize your water pump is leaking. Rage more.
20150716_165307 by concealer404, on Flickr

Remove it and throw that crap in the trash.
20150716_180203 by concealer404, on Flickr

Get angry and bang out the water pump and timing belt in 15 minutes.

Marvel at how legit your suspension looks.
20150717_145803 by concealer404, on Flickr

At this point, Gchambers helped me out with an alignment, despite the car being a bad combination of too low with too much droop travel to get on his platforms. Saved my ***, as the alignment was REALLY bad up front. We lucked out on the rear being ok, so after driving a total of 40 miles on this thing since January, i figured it would be ok to drive down to MATG on Wednesday morning.

I got the brakes to work on the way there by dragging them at 80mph for about 10 miles until i saw smoke. Let them cool, and i had stopping power! Found out the next morning that i only had front brakes, as there was nothing but air in the rear lines because my wife apparently didn't have the leg strength to push past the front brakes with the monster master cylinder i have. Bled brakes in the rain on Thursday night, **** was cash. Proceeded to spit a bunch of the pad clips out over the weekend, so now my brakes rattle a lot, but they stop well.

Meeting people in Knoxvegas for pizza.

Rained on Thursday, so spent the day drinking at the cabin and taking pictures of my car in the rain from the porch.

Then drove home.

The car is fast, reliable, loud, hot, uncomfortable, and doesn't give a **** about anything. It's exactly what i wanted.

Had vteckiller2000 drive past us a couple times on the hillclimb route just to see how loud it was outside the car.

You can just delete that nipple. Cut it off, tap it, plug it.

yeah, see G's thread for pics. #becauseracek0r

But really - why can't you install the hose onto the waterneck and then install as 1 unit? Still doesn't clear? I remember on a couple engines it was tight but worked

It definitely won't clear if i install hose first, and i'm unsure how i feel about the rather large amount of force that would be going on at that point.

That nipple just goes to the oil warmer, right?

Yeah, good ******* luck with that.







3/8NPT will fit, but you are going to have to drill baby drill. You'll have to ask Gesso what size drill be he ended up purchasing.

It runs from the back of the head > oil warmer > throttle body > front water neck. I eliminated all these things, because what does Mazda know about engine design?!

To answer your other question, you might be able to grind 20, maybe 30 thou off the end of that nipple before you get into trouble . So basically not at all.

3/8" NPT bit is 9/16". You can just look these things up...

The oil warmer is the only thing i have left out of those things, too. Sigh.

Sounds like i'll just kludge the **** on there for now then remove more **** when i pull the motor over winter.


Or maybe i buy the M-tuned reroute OneTwo has for sale.

Yes, do this. Buying used worked well for me, and I have a thread documenting all the parts and sources for the install. Be sure to ditch the supplied mid steel coil spring that comes with the kit and buy the SS one I listed in the M-Tuned service parts thread.

Just go buy some 1/8" flat bar and make a spacer for your spacer. Glue it on with rtv. Seriously if you were making that instead of taking pictures of the problem you'd be done by now.
