ahh shippings gona be prob around 100$ for both together i believe i just wieghed them and mesured and searched it on the calculated rate, so tell him 300 shipped im only gona be making not even 200 bucks theres only probably like 4000kms on them not even. He will need to extend his O2 sensor to reach the back for the headers not that hard, just get wire and crimp it. So tell me if he wants them or not.

if you're really careful.. drill off one side of the lugnut... where the wall area is... that gives u a spot to put a dimple to put a chisel/flathead in, hammer it down, voila

My roommate shipped a set of motorcycle headers via DHL, cost him $18. It was one big heavy box too.

well one i live in Canada thats why, the intake weighs 7 pounds, and the header weighs 13 pounds. Then dimensions of the box. But i will wrap it and go to the post office and get a real estimate after there open like on Thursday after the holidays. Probably actually 30 or 35 bucks cheaper of what i estimated i will check though.

No offense, but sell it to them. I asked him and hes not willing to pay anywhere near that much for shipping. I've been to Niagara Falls, not like its Cambridge Bay or something... Toss that **** in the trunk of your car, go "sight seeing" in new york, visit FedEX.. Problem solved. lol.

alright i just bought the bilstein shocks and vogtland lowering springs, godspeed rad, 440 injectors, megasqurit, red rad hoses, and 2 10" rad cooling fans. About 2 grand right now, dads being gay and saying thats all im getting and a paint job. Its good enoguh for me now im prepared for turbo install that is all i need right now. Would i be able to run 440cc injectors with the ms, on my stock setup with headers+intake, like would it run? I think it would give me more hp?, because isnt it more fuel+more air=more power, so the question im asking is will i be able to run the 440's with the ms on stock setup for now. Thanks Mike

Yes you can run the 440cc's on your setup. No it shouldn't give you better power than stock injectors unless your stock injectors were fucked up.

It sounds like you are calling your dad gay because he ONLY spent $2k on you. Tell him that I will be his son and won't call him gay if he spends $2k on my Miata.

Well i started drilling at the lug, that was broken instead of the stud, because that will take 20 years to drill the stud out. So i bought some drill bits at Canadian Tire today, pretty much all the shitty small ones broke...which are the ones i need. This thing is impossible to get out without ruining the rim!!! Unless i buy some forged ss **** or something like that then i was thinking of sticking two prongs in or something and try turning it.
