Default Woot ok guys im back

As some of u might have surmised world of warcraft recently claimed my life and all of my energys but the recent 8 day power outage and freezing my nuts off etc has made me realize. I need to get back here and work on my **** more. Curently my turbo is mothballed in the back of the driveway till i get some nice weather. My nissan made metal soup of its tranny and my 5.0 cougar blew a coolant passage on the block. So naturaly i went out and grabbed the newest and coolest car ive ever bought a nice 2005 Mazda 3s peppy lil 2.3 engine 5 speed tranny just what i need and deserve to get me throught this time between driving the miata.
As for the miata i am still seeing a weird spark cut with my millenia cops at 10+ psi and it is getting annoying i had started playing with my dwell and even considered sending my MS to Scot or Chad if they would look it over and confirm that i didnt totally **** it up when i did the spark and ebc mods (EBC nvr workd right either :( ) And since i just dropped a good hunk of cash on the 3 it looks like i wont throw alot of $ at the miata for alilwhile either.
Anyway prepare for the postwhore on slaught and unabashed opinnions magna is back

WoW

Magna, folks just figured out the spark mods on all the Miata MSes built in the last 2-3 years are fucked. Ask Chad or Scott about it.

Yeah Rich you need to change a couple of resistors from 1K ohms to like 330 ohms IIRC. Something like that, and it should be good. It gives more power to the coils.

are you serious? Even the most masterful forger couldn't replicate Magna's disgusting grammar, punctuation and paragraph forming skillz (or lack there of).
