Ed, this is mt.net. You know that if we can't buy it, we don't install it. GOSH

I wonder how much boost Boost Buddy will take before he pops?

Yes it is coolness.

But, I fear to install it on me own vehicle. Uncertain glue joint on flexible material ... with my luck, that sucker would pop loose in the worst moment.

I will remove it before going on track. The way I plumbed it in takes me 30 seconds to bypass it.

Gents, I haz question.

Getting ready to put my Miata back together this weekend. Got the coolant fitting replaced and got my manifold surfaced.

The mani to head nuts don't really seem to lock anymore. I'm guessing that's from heat fatigue? They seem to tighten down just fine, but I can spin them most of the way on by hand.

If I resbond them can I expect them to stay, or do I need to replace these nuts?

They aren't known to loosen on their own once torqued.

My experience is that, yes, this happens with the manifold-to-head nuts pretty much any time you've had them good and hot from track use and I generally plan on replacing most of them if I'm going to have the manifold off. That said, if it's the last thing stopping you from driving the car, go ahead and put it together with the old ones, drive the car, order new ones, and replace them when they arrive. It's not going to fall off in a couple weeks of driving.

I wouldn't bother with resbond on these.

Started her up last night. Sure felt good, since Stook went away on Sunday.

Just have to button a few things up and go for a drive!
