Default Just as the DIY Forum starts giving me information for my project.....

I'll be saying goodbye to the DIY stuff. Turns out i will not be building my own turbo kit.... therefore, i won't be needing anything i was collecting and it's all for sale..... hell, even my car is for sale now.

I just wanted to throw out a few thanks to those of you who have helped me gain some knowledge about what im doing.... it will apply to Ver.II**

Why?

**I'll tell you guys next week

Scott, Sucks to hear what happened. Fortunatly that isn't the case with me (though i did roll my 96 and then 3 weeks later bought another 96 and for it to be totaled on my way home from buying it....on my b-day!).

I'll sell you my car....for a really good deal.... if you're interested.

Sorry about the suspense, it'll be worth it when i reveal Ver.II

Mike experienced certain bowel control issues when I let him drive my car, and he's yet to recover. Prognosis is unlikely that he'll ever fully control his sphincter muscles. So he's trading the miata in on a Cressida wagon.
