****...cant get them from my buddy, and he deals with rc, they said there impossible to get, and i was going to get them for 5$ each. So im just going with the spliced ones. Im probably not going to cut the stock ones. I was thinking about just shoving the wire inside the old harnesses? Would that be good or no, or should i just cut, wire and tape them up with the new ones?

I thought you said you weren't stupid.

Call Arizona TPI telling you need Bosch Style Connectors for you injectors.

http://www.aztpi.com/

Cut your old connectors off
Run Heat Shrink tube on the wires BEFORE you solder.
Then Solder
Then heat put the heat to the heat shrink tube to secure it in place.

I find is hard to believe someone who works on modern EFI cars, let alone mods them does not have a soldering gun and a multimeter. This is basic stuff.

So you were planning on shoving in wire into the terminals? Jesus ******* christ.

If you want the "revert back to stock" ability then spend the money and buy the oval male to square female (aka flying miata style, even if they are not made by FM, just resold) injector plugs. It isn't like you haven't sunk x amount of dollars into your setup already.

If you don't either:

a) Practice a TON (unlikely considering your attitude to anything) before you even attempt to solder it yourself.
b) Pay or get someone else to do it who can.

If you do it yourself, as your first time soldering you will just **** up the injector harness.

probably, i have a multimeter, where i wire stuff, i get strippers, tie wires together get the caps, put it over and twist. I believe my uncle will know how to, he has a welder, and a soldering gun so.

I've had lots of luck using these:

http://www.molex.com/pdm_docs/sd/191640162_sd.pdf

With this..

http://www.autobarn.net/flhegun.html

For doing solder connections in tight places. Just make sure you don't do it around a lot of gas vaper.. clean up any pools of gas and let things air out well if you are working in the engine bay.

BOOM! Lol ya, that nifty heat gun looks pretty cool, pretty much like the end of a cigarette lighter but hotter. I'm going to Canadian Tire today to buy one, or rent something from Home Depot, installing MS, and try to tune. Cant do fans because rads not in, and rims are stuck so shocks have to wait.

Front Strut Tower Bar. Guess since it's a Miata Front SHOCK tower bar would be more appropriate.

Like cjernigan said, on ABS-equipped cars there is a clip which mounts the sensor lead to the damper body to steady it. And yes, only the fronts have these.
