Default Props to MiataRoadster.com

Just ordered some parts from miataroadster.com, they’ve got a great selection of unique parts and venders. Bill Wilner, the owner, runs a great site, unbelievable communication and really goes the extra mile for you.

After checking out his site at the suggestion of another miataturbonet member, I ordered some parts, including a set of Mazdaspeed motor mounts, he emailed me back immediately to tell me that he was out of stock, but he would check around for me. I had told him I wanted them by Saturday because I’m tapping into the oil pan for my turbo oil return, and thought as long as I was under there I should go ahead and replace the motor mounts. It seems like everybody is out of stock, finally got the last set that Corksport had, and I’ll have them by Saturday.

Check out his site, like I said, some interesting stuff, like the heat extraction hood riser kit, only 10 bucks, a cheap way to cool your engine compartment down.

He’s got parts and links from everywhere, from low cost parts to really high-end stuff, in some cases you get redirected to different sites and may end up on a site from Japan, you let him know what you want, and he gets it for you.

Really great guy to deal with.

Not affiliated, just a very happy customer.

Sorry, but that's not true.... it does not extract air from the engine bay. Right below the windshield is a high pressure zone.

Glad you had a good experience. The only things I've gotten from him are my R-package tie rod ends.

Agree with crashnscar about the hood risers, the logic is backwards. Plus, it's only about $6 worth of hardware at ACE.

Sorry, but you're wrong, if you had taken the time to look at his site, you'd have seen that there is a link to ImportTuner magazine's website, they did a review/test, because of just that kind of thinking. Their testing did show reduced underhood air temps, both while standing still and at speed. And yes, you could comb through Ace and get the parts for $6, plus tax, plus you're time trying to make it work. Less than $4, that's a big savings.

Their probably are decreased temps while standing still, but at speed the high pressure zone created on the windsheild causes backwards flow into the engine bay and DRMATICALLY decreases cooling efficicnecy.
This has been proven MANY TIMES.
You are the one who needs to look before they speak, especially when you have 9 posts and you come into a forum full of serious geariheads and engineers

Wow, try and give some well earned props to a vender and all you get are the haters and pompous experts.

Chill, that wasn't the point of my post, just that he has some interesting stuff to check out.

You are completely ******* wrong. Reading ricer ------ magazines like ImportTuner is your first mistake. Actually believing them and the bullshit advertising for the hood risers is your second mistake.

I suggest you stop letting yourself be spoonfed utter bullshit by ricer magazines and actually read up about stuff on here. Many things are tested by fellow members and proven/disproved.

Don't get your panties in a wad: we are all ********
That said I'm glad you had a good experience with a vendor. Someone somewhere is doing their job

crashnscar,

I do plan on enjoying my stay here, an a**hole like you isn't going to ruin it for me, there's too much good information and I'm ready to learn.

Thanks for hijacking my thread to show off what a ******** you are.

Thanks 18psi. Yeah, unfortunately we can all be ******** at times. Too bad, but that's the way this fucked up world turns (and look where it's gotten us).

I was living in San Francisco in the late 70's. Had only had sex
with a man once before, curtesy of a glory hole at my college, a
concept I couldn't resist. But years had gone by, and I was living
in the city, working at a store 6 days a week, and rarely going on
dates. But one night I was driving on Geary street, and I was so
horny I thought I'd explode, I pulled over to give the once over
to a hooker. She came up to the door of my company van and smiled
and asked what I was looking for. When I realized she was a he I
laughed and apologized for making a mistake. She reached in the car
and grabbed hold of my **** thru my pants and told me that I hadn't
made a mistake. I tried to resist, but she got in the van anyway.
She said "Look, we don't have to if you don't want to, but could
you give me a ride home?" So I gave her a ride somewhere up in the
hills and as we pulled over to stop she pulled me out of the driver's
seat and led me to the back of the van. A latino with satiny skin,
she kissed my neck and then pulled my throbbing **** out of my pants...
then she pulled my hand under her dress to her own throbbing ****,
which I started to stroke and suck as she sucked mine. Her **** was
long and thin and slippery as it went in and out of my lips, with
my own **** thick and pulsating between hers. We both exploded in
a sea of ***, gasping for breath under the sexual torrent. She refused
to take any money for me, thanking me for the ride and sending me
on my merry way. I've always had a fondness for tv's ever since then,
but have yet to find one was pretty as her!

you're a ******* idiot. You better pray to god that I don't go "Lawnmower Man" on your *** and come through the computer and **** up your life. Quit posting your horse-**** here and I might not whip your *** like a bitch.

Stick around a while. You'll quickly figure out that no matter what you do, all you get are the haters and pompous experts.

I could feel her sweat dripping on my face which was an immense turn on. We matched groan for groan and moan for moan as the buildup was near for immense body-slamming orgasms. The action was intense as she nailed me like it was the last hump she’d ever have. I could see a scowl on her face as she wanted to destroy my dick with every part of her being. Her muscles gripped my tower fiercely as we both didn’t want to let go of this abundant rapture that would unfortunately soon end. She brought her head down to mine and I grabbed it while we tongued furiously. This lasted for maybe a minute before she pushed herself back and her body exploded in one violent orgasm after another. She yelled and shouted that she was cumming as I held onto her hips and felt the force of every vigorous ***. This triggered my sac and I reared back before unleashing wave after wave of cream covering every inch of her scorching insides. Everyone in the complex could hear every vulgarity we could throw out there. This was the gamut of cussing from two deeply satisfied beings during the ultimate climax. I pushed her hips into me as best as I could so we could make this memorable moment last as long and strong as possible. When her voluptuous frame ceased its constant tremors, she leaned forward and collapsed in a heap on my chest. We were both out of breath yet completely satisfied. And that's when I decided to turn off the computer and go to bed.
