From what I remember the 1st gens up to 94 or 95 had issues with them cracking or seperating the frame rails form the body. Its all aluminum. They fixed the issue with bracing and so on on the later models.

Is this a trick question? Joe labeled everything excellently.

I forget my own name at times, this is not an acceptable method for me.

I find parts in my garage all the time. Just the other day I found a VLSD with 100k on it. It's like Xmas everytime I go out there.

I actually just found out I have a 99TB that was still in the package from when I bought it from someone on here. Also found a 1.8 intake manifold sitting in a tub yesterday while looking for my battery charger lol. It's always fun finding parts.

I'll show you a probe.

I'll start a new thread in the OT section about my new (old) thing, I don't want to make this thread about my NSX.

Awwww yissssssss




I already started off on the wrong foot by being an idiot. I tried to lower the GC sleeves with just one side of the car up. It literally took me an hour before I realized why nothing would budge. It's a bit rough on cold start but I took a spin around the townhouse area and it sounds amazing.

Yeah, I never could get cold start quite right with the MS. It always starts, just sometimes needs to be goosed a little before it'll fire.

I lol'd a bit at the email chain that was waiting for me.

I still need to register it before I drive it too much. DMV is closed over the weekend. Tomorrow morning I'm going to wash it real good and snap some photos

I can confirm this now. Almost too good actually. Like good enough where I don't know if I want to build and swap in a 1.8 anymore. My main goal for this car is for it to have close to zero down time. The last two turbo miatas I had they spent more time in the garage in parts than running.

Either way I'm going to drive it like it is until something major happens. Either maintenance related, or something lets loose.
