Just realized something...
The breather line has to be plumbed into the intake piping, wouldnt I need a nipple welded there too in order to attach the hose to?
Only issue is I dunno how were gonna route the intake/airfilter yet..

Suggests/Alternatives?

No big deal, we can just tap the inlet pipe and put a nipple on it. Remond me to bring my tap set. As for the air filter, we will think of something.

Cool, I have 2 tap sets just in case...
I'm guessing just get a fitting that has a barb on one end for the hose, and threaded on the other end? Autozone should have that im sure..That and some JBweld = BIG smile

Good thinking

Update...

Clutch line came in today, and flywheel I picked up from DHL (bastards)...
Welder called, pipes will be ready for pickup tomm morning. ANd I'll drop off the flywheel to be resurfaced tomm as well, should have it back in an hour..
Only real wildcard at this point is the Clutch Kit...It was shipped 3day Air which means it should be here tomm sometime...let's all pray!

I'm still at work, but when I get home (about 9ish) I'll PM everyone the address, directions, and my #. Or if its easier, u guys can PM ur #'s and I'll call you guys tonight to give you all the info and make sure you know where ur all going...

Alllllllllllmost there...cant friggin wait man...

If you remind me I will bring one.


Joseph let me get in touch with Shane and see what up with him. He lives In Boca also. Perhaps the 2 of you could meet me off of 95 and Oakland Park Blvd, then we can go get Eli. I will let you know.

Actually, everyone bring everything that fits in ur trunk..

We need allignment tool(phil), jackstands(phil), tin snips(phil), sockets, extensions, breaker bar(s), I have an air compressor, but limited air tools, maybe Eli can bring his tuning laptop in case we need to cheat on the tuning?, I dunno what else...

Bring whatever you guys can, I have alot of stuff, but like I said I'm sure there's alot of things I dont have...Soldering stuff(wiring tools in general) for example would be helpful...

We may need to do some trimming on the ic pipes..I have a mitersaw w/ a carbide blade, but its a bitch to switch the blade and it tends to burn the metal??...If anyone has anything better bring it, if not then we'll make due...
I have a average size vice..dunno what else...

dunno what else we might need...

I have been waaay too busy today for a friday

Phil, the caravan sounds good- I just talked to Joseph also and he's down.

I have not had a chance to google the location yet, so let me know how long you think it is going to take to get down there. I can get on the road whenever.

I don't really feel like looking through the thread for it. Where does 'What Miata' live?

Ok, Shane and Joseph are gonna meet me at the Wendys on Oakland an 95 at 7. Sebastian if your deff going why dont you meet us on 95 at the 595 entrance ramp at 7:15? From there we will go get Eli and then head over to Tony's place,

Sound good everyone?

Tony I will bring the tools you mentioned for me and I will also bring my fancy wire strippers. I will also bring my 1/4" socket extentions, pipe for breaher bar and my laptop. I dont think Eli has one, he uses the link pad. On sunday morning we should go buy some heat shrink and wire connectors, so put that on your list.
