2 ac pumps
2 ps pumps
2 valve covers
water neck

head turbo and exhaust flanges
v band flanges
3 bolt flanges
sch 40 pipe elbows & tees

intercooler pipes up the a$$

This is just my first Miata and I hope to accumulate that much some day. Already on my way with 2 cats and a couple boxes of belts, nuts and bolts.

Stan, I need a LNC shorty. Got one? I may take one of your heads, too.

If you are organized enough to have a parts list, you have me beat by a mile. I have enough parts in boxes in the attic to trim and fire a bare shell without going to the store for more than fluids. I hope it doesn't come crashing down on my head some day.

If I have no plans for the parts, I usually get rid of them. No room to hoard parts when you have a one car garage...
