After dealing with 1 Miata I don't think I'd ever buy more than that! Y'all are nuts.

In Darien, CT right now. Forgot how gutless n/a Miatas are.

Sounds really good though. Cobalt header, roadstersport midpipe, Cobalt exhaust, K&N Typhoon intake.

Yeah. Got it for cheap enough that Turbofan would probably become physically ill thinking about the money spent on his latest salvage project.


Let's just say i could take this to the GRM $2014 Challenge.

I would never waste Challenge budget on a hardtop. That's all that would have to come off, though. Honestly if i had done 3 separate Bills of Sale, (car, hardtop, spare parts that came with it), i could probably have made a case for the car with hardtop making it under Challenge Budget.

Anyways, not like it matters. It's going away on the 18th, and the 95 is getting:

Corbeau A4s w/ sliders
Boss Frog harness bar
Boss Frog Clearview roll bar
Hardtop
Autopower 5pt cam lock harnesses
MSM pedal set
Whatever that huge shock tower bar is in the front
Fog lights and bezels

Might swap the Alpine 9881 in the NB to the 95 as well. Depends how motivated i get.

Yeah that's happening this weekend. Didn't feel like looking at it again yesterday after sitting in it for 1100 miles straight. And yesterday after work had to make a 3 hour round trip to drop Lilah off at her new home. :(

How much vacuum at hot idle should I be seeing? Noticed today it's at 18. Never really paid attention before. Idle speed was at about 750-800rpm.

I'm going to check for vacuum leaks this weekend, but is this in normal range? At about 500' elevation, aem electronic stepper gauge.

That is about where mine is, but I'm at 7k feet which should reduce the vac I see. I'd check for leaks and whatnot just to be sure, but it's probably fine.

It kind of depends on your tune as well. You can actually tune the idle for maximum idle vac value, or at least I've read of that being used in the past.

18 is not very good. I think 21+ is what it should be
