Default Mild wiretuck on the Miata.

Was bored the other day so I did a mild wiretuck.

Notice I didn't tuck the engine harness at all (don't want to cut into it), but the engine bay is MUCH cleaner.

Honestly I don't have many good pictures of the before.

The engine is the same (for the most part), but the major change is the removal of power steering (like it better that way) and A/C (didn't work), plus the tuck of the headlight harnesses and removal/relocation of the coolant overflow tank.

Also was the removal of all the emissions related items, although those were removed before the second before picture, but slightly visible in the first picture to the right of the engine.

Here is a stock (except for the horns and intake) engine bay:

I dont really care as much about the tuck as I like your over the rad i/c setup. so ******* clean/nice. this is the 3rd one I see like that on an nb and its so damn nice.

please dont hate me for this as I'm not trying to threadjack, but can you shed any more light on how easy/hard that was to do? did u have to cut the hood at all? any pics of the brackets u made for the rad? anything will help, and if u wanna pm it to me thats cool . ..sorry to threadjack

What do you need to do to eliminate the overflow tank?

That's not a wiretuck. That's a "let's make acid rain" enhancement.
