Or did I miss it?

Monster miata - price drop - 11kobo

Who owns it? Seems pretty well sorted out and sounds familiar, but I just can't place it.

The "Monster Miata" is not a Monster Miata. I is dissapoint. But looks like a nicely sorted car.

Is that a hyper hot side coolant re-route?

Hot side, yes, but not Hyper. His has two five pound boat anchors holding the pipe up.

I welded up that coolant reroute. It's routed there because it is the logical place to route it. There's one adel clamp supporting it to the cylinder head.

This car is Paul's miata's drivetrain.

Thought it looked familiar. What did he do? Put the drivetrain in a good '90 body? As I remember, Paul's '94 wasn't in the best shape, especially under the dash where he "lightened" it in my garage with a sledge hammer.

And where he lightened the truck with my dad's plasma cutter. Like 4 hours and 8lbs later...

Maybe that was the first machine.

Yeah I think so, this guy just transferred the fun parts to his donor car.
