need heater hoses? I bought a set, then thought I had the wrong set, then ordered a different set that just ended up being the same set, then decided to go with silicone hoses lol. I can sell you a set for cheap.

FM Vmaxx xxxxxxtreme(!!!) came in last week, hope to have that and the brakes in soon. Also decided to pull the greddy EBC and keep things simpler with an MBC, so I'll need to find some replacement gauges as well. I figure boost, A/F, and oil temp are the important ones... I'll probably pick up a ddmworks radio mount as well for those 3 gauges.

Make new door cards, to accommodate LE speaker surrounds and without holes for a window crank.

Smooth out the runners in the Hondafold.

Tap Hondafold for WI nozzles, install nozzles, etc.

Install the Skunk2 TB and the Honda MAP, wire the MAP, reconfigure the MS, etc.

Figure out what to do with my Bowser heatshield since it's popped a spot weld and rattles.

Figure out if I need to change my spark tune when I install the mani.

Probably a bunch of other things too.

I finished the brakes today, started on the differential swap. Holy hell one of the axles is seized right the hell up.

Debating whether to spend the money on a larger hammer or a used upright.

mmm what does not seem possible? the miata is a pretty simple car. if you wanna see crazy look at the guys who have been working for a long long time decoding Motronic 7 found in the audi ecu B5 s4. most complex tuning I'm aware of, not that I'm an expert by any means. the level of safeguards and sophistication may have something to do with the whole unintended acceleration thing?

very interesting forum if you want to geek out.. start reading you'll start to get it in a few months.
