Did amazingly well at the Gap - no overheating, cold ac, fast enough. Just wish i gapped the rings smaller and deleted the squirters. Has new guides and seals but still belching smoke on decel. I do need to open the vent though. It'll likely help with the large gaps and blow by.

For Ryan - cause his endplates are sexy cool - and because he still hates me for snagging the Kognition wing from TSE before he was able too

lolz
I actually came to a point recently where I stepped back and debated selling everything engine related before unwrapping the goodies to chase an albino 3 rotor squirrel. Then decided I'm too close to back out.... It would be like pulling out right before you blow with the most gorgeous chick you've slept with (I'm still waiting).

Anyhoo - last week i picked everything up from my builder/tuner thinking i was going to sell it - looks like I'm gonna build it (again) now. I really do need Adderall
So currently, there's a $10k pile of parts sitting in my shop - time to start assembling it.

On a side note - i will likely be selling my unused gen1 xidas for a custom kit to take advantage of the drop spindles.

Just read this whole thread, really entertaining stuff. It's good to see someone fighting against the stereotype that all of us Alabamians are degenerates




Is miatas at the lake or miatas in mentone still a thing? I'm looking for info and can only find a post on m.net from 2011

Miatas at the Lake is just something I do at my house when I feel like it. A lot of people had schedule conflicts last year on the weekend I chose. Sad panda. Maybe we'll do something.

As an aside... that looks like a business opportunity for Emilio. 6UL's look good under a Mustang!
