Good. I am honestly hoping I get Sunday off this weekend and can actually do some work on my built motor. I need to check valve clearance and then get the timing belt installed.

It's a dedicated weekend for wrenching on miatas, namely the NB so I can get it to the tuner. No beer today - well maybe later

Well, dropped the NB off to Hux Racing yesterday for finishing up the install and tuning.
Nothing huge to see but touching up the full fender flares to fit the nb2 front clip (was horrible fitment to the bottom edge) and sparkle pony blue.

is that bung on DP for the o2 sensor? Seems really close, you might overheat the sensor there. I am on a stock-ish miata and my sensor overheated on some occasions and the bung is near the trans.

I've been running a sensor about that close or closer for.... 5 years now? Same sensor. 'Tis fine.

Genesplicer, Hux Racing? The same guys that do MR2/Celica/3sgte things?

Also: I was horribly confused until i realized i was a page behind on this build. The NB really threw me for a loop.

That bung isnt used. It was at first but moved the wb further down the pipe.

Yes Ben - that's him. Eric is great
I was thinking about separating the builds but was feeling too lazy to keep up with them.

Just shaved 10lbs of the deck lid and hinge brackets. Keisler spindles being send to ThePass for air duct fabrication. Umm... engine is built with one-off cams from TSE with more lift. Waiting on trans solution then game on! NB should be back in a month and cross fingers paint will be compete.

Pic for proof of "work"

How do y'all like my pit bike in the back ground

Hell, I'd have to ask Sav again what the lift ab and duration is again. I did have to massage the bucket walls a bit too gain clearance, particularly on the exhaust side. I want to say it had .5" total lift and around 270 on the intake.

About dam time... almost finished. Still wiring stereo up and other gay ****. Runs STRONG - I actually turned down the boost.

Looks nice. Are you coming to the big get together at the lake? In the "Meets" section.
