Default Hey again

Hey, I haven't been around in a while. I don't think I've posted since last summer.

Great time this summer with the Miata. Now, coming into the 'work season' I felt inspired to come over here and say hello.

Things I have found out about my Miata over the past 6 months or so:

1. I had to pull the motor last winter after diagnosing an oil leak. The pump itself was leaking around the gastket to the block. FYI: Do NOT use 3rd party gaskets for the oil pump. A $4 Mazda cork gasket from finishline was all I needed to stop the leak.

2. Did a good ammount of Link tuning this summer. A WBO2 is still not on the car, so shame on me. I have a bit of stumble when I get into the 600 and 700 ranges. I don't know if it is fuel or coil packs. Much more tuning is in store for next summer.

3. I have some weird PCV issue that spits some oil at startup. At worst, the turbo needs to be rebuilt. I'll be asking about this when I find out more.

4. Miata's will lose the fight when they are backed into by GMC Jimmys. I was parked in the street and my neighbor's girlfriend hit my baby at about 10mph. ~$3000 in damages. Sucks to be her. It's all taken care of now.

Just want to say what's up to Phillip, Olderguy, LOLA and all you people from back in the day. You'll be hearing from me
