You already have an ugly color car why would you want 2?
just build them both to 400 whp and do your best to demolish teh track with them. when one lets go you will have a spare.,

variable rate student loans. If I weren't drunk and high throughout college, I probably wouldn't have 18.9% vAPR on loans right now.

I planned on putting everything in over the last 2 weeks, but the god damn subaru broke so I had to buy this additional car to daily while I build the green one. I plan on taking my green car to the garage when I step off the plan on saturday, getting the 95 to daily, then getting that motor in next week. I just don't have any cash for dyno time right now, but I'll get a good road tune at 5psi or so for the next month, then put down 300whp (turn it back to 250whp), deal with whatever cooling issues arise, then rape and spit at Hallett with FTD at Miatas at Hallett.

$54k. I pay $861 per month right now. I was paying $480 per month this time last year. I should have scored a loan for a house, rolled loans into the mortgage, forclosed, and let obama pay for it.

Now that I've thought about it for a day, I only need one miata. The green car will get everything and I'll buy a respectable daily when I have the money.

How long will you be intown? Any free time?
My car is loading up bad. I need a street tune.

How much does your guy charge for dyno hrs. Rotary performance said they would rent out theirs out for 75 hr. I don't know what type it is though. Let me know if you wanna split some time.

since I was on the subject in here and I don't feel like starting another thread on it...once again I have to put off the build. I just found out that OK requested me again for a long-***-time. So now hopefully I can fly home on sat morning and do the swap and turbo install on saturday and sunday, then make a maiden voyage in the turbo car from Dallas to Tulsa (with a full toolbag), while tuning on the fly. Then get the car to a dyno so I can have my car ready for Miatas at Hallett...lol.

Sweet...
I work 6:30am-7:00pm at the hospital Fri. sat.& Sun. I am off Mon.
I drove it to work today. I had forgot to put my K&N back on. I was so pissed.
Anyway, I think I have a ground issue. The ecu grounds are not on the motor by the cas. I found the wiring harness went to the fire wall. I grounded it there. But now my speedo is going crazy. I might have to get the book out and switch it to stock location tonight. I have the next two days off. So I'm going to try your settings and get the injectors and Iat sensor in.

You never know, we might get the snail on your car.

Ground issue will not cause the speedo to do anything funny. If it did you aren't driving a Miata.
