Default What happened to this car???

This is a car for sale on craigslist where I live. I know the owner and have sold him a Miata I had about a month ago. He is now listing his turbo Miata. Look at the under hood shot of this car. WOW!!!

See he heard heat was bad for his megasquirt, so he ran all the wires under the hood in a big ball then back to the MS when he wired it up, that way they kind of act like an intercooler by transferring the heat out via the wiring.
