[QUOTE=hustler;858128]Turbo car:[LIST][*]Send turbo to Europe[*]Make real AN lines/fittings for the turbo lines




I was going to do this last night minus the Starlight but the local speed shop did not have whatever size AN a 5/16 hose is... which is AN 5, which is not common since most places only stock even. guess all the shops had a meeting to boycott odd sizes

so now goes on the fuel line or turbo water lines until I decide how to re pipe the water lines. think I will pull from the front plug in the reroute kit and then do a tee.

ended up getting an upright for $44 shipped. That thing was not going to come out. We ended up mushrooming the axle with a 4 lb sledgehammer.

well I leaned what can happen with half drunken welding other other night when I decided to start modifying my seat bracket late at night. lets just say I have a new rule. no welding after I've stopped work for the night. I also I think its time to make a welding table and get gloves and a real mask

I thought your car was broken and needed to be dynoed. Your other car won't be traumatizing anything but corollas and old tired minivans.

Figure out oil temp sender issue.
Decide on seats that
a) have sliders
b) take harnesses
c) work with door bars and
d) lower me a bit more than my double-foamectomy currently does.

Change oil after Monday's track event.
Finish the tire trailer and test drive it next week.

1. Fix A/C. Evaporator has holes and South Florida gets hot this time of year.
2. Replace busted alignment bolts. Can't get proper alignment without them.
3. Get alignment. I want to use Flyin' Miata's recommended settings.
4. Get more seat time at the local auto-x

  • Get the seats done (leather covering) that part is done
  • Finish tuning the MS
  • Replace front bearings.
  • Tear down engine and build a well built built build.
