Good enough for me. I reckon might as well keep the stocker if it's getting replaced with a blower soon

I hopped on CR.net to read the cosmetic side of your build, I really like what you've done with the car.


It'd put a good fight vs my car for the "Cursed Miata" title


Way to keep motivation too! I lost my cash flow so its hard for me to keep motivated.

Well as if things couldnt get any better with my life, I fired up the car the other night and it worked fine. Fast forward to lastnight when I was going to finally drive it home from my inlaws house, i heard a loud knocking in the engine and my idle got all screwed up. Yes folks it looks as if either a bearing is toast or way worse. Im at such a loss right now. Of course the usual thoughts of selling the car as is for cheap just to get rid of it have come to mind but really, I feel broken after this.
