OK guys. my miata is back on the road temporarily. Motor is coming out for a week or so but then it will be GOOD TO GO.

Pike season has started. I ran into FastColt last night and his car made me jealous (it actually looks nice AND runs).

Cant wait for the Uconn car show and some random meets we get going.

I didnt post in my build thread yet, but I spent the entire day yesterday getting the miata in road worthy condition.

I pulled everything off again except for the manifold. Downpipe leaks are welded closed and I wrapped it in some heat wrap up top. I pulled the entire exhaust and painted it 2000deg flat black. Had to make a cut in the exhaust to get the test pipe to fit, but now everything is in tight with no more leaks. I also used a gasket sheet and made gaskets for everything.

No more leaks, the car is WAY smoother, quieter, and runs stronger. I have something smoking though. I'm not sure if its the fiberglass heat wrap, the paint, gaskets, etc.....but it comes and goes. Everytime I pull over to find it, its gone.

Anyways, I'm back on the road so I should be good to meet up whenever.

I am almost positive it is your wrap. Mine still does it when I run her good and hard. I am almost ready to get mine on the street. Anybody know a shop that'll pass me for emissions?

I worked on my car all weekend, I installed the new IC with all new brackets, routed all the IC pipes and I just sent the to get welded, fitted the new bumper and trimed it for the IC. Car should be running by the end of the week with no bumper, YES I still haven't painted it and I don't know what I'm waiting for lol

^^^ I still haven't decided, part of me wants black top with black windshield surround and the other part of me wants it red... I'm not really worried about it much since summer is around the corner and the top will never be on
