its so easy to find 550cc purpletops on there. i just posted up and 2 guys offered me sets real quick for decent prices.

if you need injectors and dont feel like paying over priced ebay auctions then head over there. just be careful, because apparently they dont like pistons.

Sold four, traded eight and installed four.

Rx7/rotary/Mazda shops are another good place to (call) check. A lot of times this stuff is in their way. Rather than send out an injector for cleaning, they buy a new one so they can make the repair at that moment and have the car ready. After while the stuff accumulates. I got three 1.6 Miata engines this way. All in unkown states, but lots of free parts there.

I got a set of red top 550s from an FC for 100 bucks from there. That is a great forum.

I spend some time there, but then that's cuz I have an FD too. It's a nice compliment to the miata.
