Lol the only part I bought from them for the re-route was the t-stat adapter. I got the Cadillac hose, and Kia water neck on my own.

This is what it looked like before I sanded/ painted it...



And after...

I'm amazed the spacer isn't leaking. You must have gotten lucky :-p

Wednesday won't work by the way, I got a few things to do by the weekend with family.

No worries! I have it mostly figured out... Just gotta get this coolant temp sensor figured out and get MS set up... Base timing set, and all that stuff

I just put the Red/Green springs in the WG so hopefully thats what I should have in there lol

Took it for a short drive maybe only 1/2 mile up the road. I just wanted to bring it up to temp to check for leaks and whatnot. Omg it sounds amazing!!! Tried to stay out of boost because I have to get it tuned... God I can't wait to actually drive this thing!!!

manifold or inlet?

it's drawing vacuum, it's pat of lease resistance is probably the big gaping hole behind the filter, so it's probably fine.

I didn't use a gasket on the exhaust manifold. Havent had a problem and no banshee screaming under load. Well, that was back when it ran.

I just meant these flanges actually bolted onto the turbo... There is a 3 bolt flange for the intercooler and 2 bolt flange for the inlet

So I have a tune lined up for Tuesday but I'm having second thoughts... It's a local guy who was recommend to me by a couple guys on my local Miata fb. Apparently he has tuned a few megasquirt miatas. Would I be better off having you guys walk me through tuning this thing myself or should I fork over the $200 have him help me tune it and show me the ins and outs of MS...

Can I get a decent tune on it myself by setting my target afr table up an let ve analyze do the work?

Get your Afr table setup and do a week or so of auto tuning before going to the dyno. Its super easy. Plus it will mean less money spent on the dyno.

I've been told by many that you really should only utilize the dyno to get your timing map setup properly. Mostly everything else you can do yourself, and you'll have a better tune running auto tune as much as possible.
