weird thing is, I replaced EVERY SINGLE THING that he replaced, with known good parts from running NB's.

I was just not destined to have that setup running. Period. lol
I'm over it.

In other news

I thought you meant you were building the Prius...

I wonder what an NB would look like in that same Subaru Crystal White Pearl?

That is hilarious. The miata and subaru are complete opposites of each other; yet in that picture they look eerily similar.

I'd totally rock a Prius as a second car. The gf and I were looking into a diesel Cruze, a Volt or a Fusion hybrid. Now I think she is set on and G37. Not great on gas but she likes and it keeps miles off the truck.

We first bought the miata as a dd so we could save her Duramax for towing the toys to the desert. Now that it has an on/off switch for a clutch she refuses to drive it. Oh well, guess that means I can pull the a/c and p/s now.

I just sold my Grand Cherokee so officially my only car is the miata and her's is giant red truck. Opposites attract?

Now just get a trailer and its time to race prep that miata



On another note, I may or may not have just purchased a bunch of turbo parts on an impulse today. I have a sickness

lolwut? what is wrong with acquiring turbo parts?

Anyway, I'm not even doing anything yet. I have no idea what I'm gonna do at this point, just gathering parts and contemplating my next move. Modifying the thubaru in the mean time.

I love driving my miata daily and I know one thing for sure: any future modifications to the miata will adhere VERY closely to this rule - no down time

Meaning it can never be down for longer than 1 day.

So I will have my turbo setup so fool proof that you can install it in a day.

Good

Seriously though, having my car on stands for like 2 months at the beginning of this year really bummed me out. Never again. I'd rather enjoy it n/a than have it on stands with a built engine/turbo

Acquiring isn't a problem if you actually use them.

How many different turbo kits have you had over the last 2 or 3 years?


(Ps I propped you other post so you can be prop neutral, neg prop was for the joking)
