I'm hopefully getting a new radiator put in tomorrow.
I was building a vband setup but then the clutch slave cyl broke and I bought a new subaru so that gets my time now, as well as removing all the cool parts off my old suby.

Berrodin by my house usually has the slave cylinders in stock and cheap. Lemme know if you want me to pick one up for you this week. I know the master cylinders go for 50 and change. Im not sure about the slaves.

Mother effer weather calls for rain on Saturday. I'm gonna have to start taping my back window up. Man I really hate driving the miata on the rain.

Only a 30% chance of rain. We had that last time and it turned out to be a really nice day.

I think more times than not it's raining on the way down or at least has good chances of rain, but it has so far been beautiful on the past dyno days I've gone to, which is most.

Looks like I will be joined by other half who wants to learn about turboz. Hoping to get my buddy to come as well so he can dyno his stock '99, realize he has less horsepower than an Amish family going to Sunday services, and get off the turbo fence.

^cool, if he needs to talk to someone who mulled it over and was on the fence for a bit....look for me.

I just had the Mishimoto radiator installed w/ the stock fans....not a happy fit. At least all seems like it went well.

got a fresh oil change too (Motul 8100). That's something else everyone that's dynoing should consider, along w/ doublechecking lines, coolant, wires, etc. Nothing's worse than seeing a motor blow on the dyno, spew oil everywhere, or whatever else.

He came with me to the last MT dyno day, he just didn't want to dyno his car knowing that as soon as he did, he'd NEED a turbo, rather than WANT a turbo. It was bad enough for him to see some of the numbers other people were putting up.

Oh, and no, still not planning to bring my Miata, so somebody else will have to take the "lowest power of the day" award.

I got my datalog working and I may have to make my final tunning touches at the dyno. Since I have no time at all lately with school and work. And Friday night I'll be chaging my oil and intalling Mazda comp mm.
I'm super excited I'm gonna pop my dyno cherry

What? I thought that was the point of dynoing your car.
