Damn, looks like an MS orgy at Brainy's place. He'll teach, you transfer parts.

So far looks like there will be some much quicker miatas rolling around IF these list are gone by summer time.

Freshen up my 1.8 engine and install

Rebuild and install T3/T04E - 50 trim
Install Tial wastegate
Install Begi S5 downpipe/manifold
All new turbo hardware, lines, couplers, etc.

If I get all that done, then I'll start prepping for a fresh paint job.

-either get napa 1.6 rotors or upgrade to 1.8 fronts.
-flush, run blue ate brake fluid

Rd. Atlanta cancelled our first race (in less than 3 weeks) because they are so behind schedule on recent "safety" changes. I had a ride for the 5 hour in a Miata and it looked like a good line up.

-Re-mount and rewire gauges (and replace 20psi boost gauge with 30psi boost gauge, anticipating the future)
-COPs, mabye later in the spring
-If someone comes through with MS-controlled progressive WI, I'll do that and a retune as well.
