I go up through the shift turret (down center console, behind passenger seat). It was pretty baller. Might reroute it now. There is now a nice whole in the firewall where the cruise control used to be.

Una mas!

I hate when people delete their facebook profiles. It looks like I'm talking to myself on pictures and status updates!

Haha anyways, I probably should reroute mine as well... I must have been drunk or something to route my wideband down the firewall (hotside), follow the frame rail, and up through my floor right in front of my seat, then follows the door seal to the dash, to gauge and MS... its all snug and hella flush but I should probably stop being lazy and drill a bigger hole in my firewall...

I routed mine up through the shifter and have it tied along the PPF to keep it away from the driveshaft. Plenty of room to make it work, plenty of room for error if not tied off. Sucks bro.

Nice! Still one of the best animes out there.

I'm pissed the video game was dropped. Same with the movie, but I think I heard they might be working on it again. If the movie comes out I hope the game will eventually make it as well.

I didnt know about a game, that would have been awesome, but yeah I sure hope they start that movie idea again, some stuff to me was left unanswered. Great anime.

I usually just pull the trans off and put it on a trans jack when changing the clutch in the miata. Braineack and I can do it all in about 2.5 working leisurely. Just makes you have plenty of extensions and universal joints. Also impact guns make the job easier.

I had a set of $500 running boards listed for $389 for the longest time, even dropped them 20% a few times with no bites. So I asked the owner if he was willing to try a few .99 no reserve auctions to move some of the older stuff and he was ok with it.

Well the ******* auction ended for $77. The guy got himself a hell of a deal.

So, how come there was no reserve on the boards?
Or, did you set the reserve too low?

No reserve. I changed it from a fixed price listing to an auction. It automatically lists it for .99 with the price I had it listed for as the but it now price, no reserve. I could have changed it but I figured they'd at least go for $250ish.

I personally don't care, but hopefully the guy up at the dealership doesn't get on my **** over it. Only thing that sucks is for the commission I'll make they aren't exactly easy to pack and ship.

I think I'm going to go ahead and fab up my own manifold using weld-els. I really like the idea of a ramhorn setup but I'm a bit scared of the collector. Any sage wisdom you can pass on?
