Default very strange night...

so I put a new trackbar on the jeep and took it for a spin, well the ball joint end they use on the adjustable track bar snapped so I got a lift down to vatozone to try and get a new one and avoid the AAA tow...

while I'm at vatozone a guy next to me is asking about a bolt and nut or some bullshit and the counter guy as always is clueless, and he's asking what the car is and he says miata, but it's not stock, has a greddy turbo
turns out it's the guy I sold my car to.

so anyway for some reason he took the turbine housing bolts out to get to the manifold studs

I guess he had an exhaust leak he was chasing down, I sure wish he'd post here.

Does he know of the website?

Crazy, random events led to you meeting him again.

Yeah I leaned over and said "did I sell you that car?" and he recognized me.


He knows about the website and I sure wish he'd post for help, but seems to have no interest.

nah but I told him it's not really a specialized bolt and to go to home depot because vatozone has nothing but morans.

I did not replace the turbo bolts with studs, and he was able to get all 4 studs out after 2 years, I was impressed.
