Ditto. Might I add that the lube is necessary or else you'll blow your o-ring the first time you try and slip it in.

Rob found 8 or so injectors that are from miata's or in his miata at some point. He says you're welcome to the o-ring if you want. You can either go and pick them up or he can drive them out to you if you dont have a way to get out there. He thinks that you're like 20 min from him and its like 60 degrees so he doesnt mind taking a little drive. Lemme know what you wanna do.

I'll be there, of course its another god damned track event sandwiched between travel. I fly home Friday, then fly out Sunday with the track action in the middle. I hope you're familiar with "being in the middle" because that's exactly where you will be when John and I get a hold of you in the shower at the track.
