Default Nick's new bigger and better set up thread

It all started with a basic greddy kit and then it transformed into a 19t and only thing that stayed stock was the manifold.

Now there is nothing left and getting all new goodies from ARTech and a gt2870.
So while Abe is fabricating my new bottom mount mani, 3" DP and muffler less 3" exhaust I started to prep my car.

Flipped my mixing coolant manifold and painted it black

Stock till winter/spring... I'm going for 260-270 hp and crossing my fingers that it doesn't blow up till I build it, if it does then it will sit in the garage like it always does anyways.

Just get an ebay WG and replace the spring. Much cheaper, works well, and will last for more than long enough for you to get a Tial.

Don't think that's a miata part, could be part of an alarm, but it looks ancient. Cut it out and see what happens.
