I dig the door card stitching, but the street sign was epic. Sad I missed it, but emulation is flattery?

Base GD chassis mx6/626 a/c delete oem firewall plugs fit. I'd bet you could get the same parts off any number of Mazdas that came without a/c.

My local auto parts store sells plugs in all sorts of sizes. Look/ask for body plugs.

Update (no the project isnt dead):

Heres what I purchased:

MSPNP
MSM Head
550cc injectors
99 Intake mani and msd actuator for the VICS
Aem wideband
H Beam rods
King bearings
Arp hardware
Walbro fuel pump
Spec stage 3 clutch

I also removed the heater core as well, I never use the damn heater. Im going to use stock pistons with new rings I already bought, hone the cylinders assemble everything. After thats all done, Ill be using the stock ecu with the stock injectors for a little till the engine is broken in (hopefully not broke). After thats done, Ill need to get an exhaust mani, downpipe, ewg, install it all, tune, and again hopefully, finally have a setup again that works great and doesnt create extraordinary nightmares. Im shooting for 300hp and 270-80 tq.

I didn't know you still had a Miata! You spend too much time playing with the kids over on CR

What turbo to you plan on using this time around?
