You haven't even posted any fail camera phone pics in your build and you're over here crying about a video. It's a Miata on the dyno, hundreds of them on youtube.

Looks nice.

Looks like there was some match work required for runners 1 and 4 tho. Should be good to go.

Its running! I still need to play with the throttle linkage a bit as it gets stuck open and I don't have as much pedal travel as before. I can say that throttle response seems much much better at any rpm. and even from a dead stop. Hopefully I can get to the dyno again within the next few weeks.

Now I know why you've been too busy to return my call. That really is so very hot.

What is the can with the little red breather on it?

And that bald bear looks so cuddly.

Yea sorry about that. We were actually pulling leatherface's motor when you called today. I will call you tomorrow.


That's the catch can that the crank case is vented to.

Cool. I actually just sent you a PM about it before I read this.

I thought the black one in front of the engine was the crankcase breather and catch can.

Just the valve cover ports are hooked to the black one. Eventually I'll move the crank case vent to it.

They are all crankcase vents. the 3rd in question just happens to be venting just above the oil pan, not up above the cams.

Just curious. Did you have any leakage issues around your FPR on the TT fuel rail? Seems like every O-ring I use doesn't work.
