FMs instructions are lovely but they are with the engine out so they leave a lot of guessing room as far as clearances go.
No need to pull the engine. Everything can be accessed From below. I can whip you up a set of fancy hard lines instead of the ghetto hose/zip tie that most people do.

I don't have a miata any more and am tired of it getting in the way. If you like it make me an offer and I'll probably accept.

Couple things. If you guys want we can also add a few things.
Bring performance parts you are looking to sell, or a list, or pics ect. You might have what somebody's looking for.
Show and Tell --- working on something cool? Lets see.
A little something for the grill/snacks. (don't everybody bring chips)
Beverages, beer/whatever. (I have a couple of ice chests)
Bag Toss?
Tools. I have a digital readout compression tester available.
DET CANS
Bikini clad tuner girls (I'm fresh out, somebody else is gonna have ta help with that one)

So i redesigned my intake manifold. The idea here is that shortening the runners an inch will increase the power band target 1 k or so. In other words with the Vics enabled it should go up to 6k instead of end at 5k so the vics should benefit the rest of the manifold. I wish i could weld aluminum so i could go nuts on it but i dont have the tools :(

So if we don't hit the desired attendee mark will it still be $60?

Also, depending if I can fit them in the car, I may bring some oem small side skirts to sell for $140 if anyone is interested.

All I can say is that if we all work at promoting it a bit more, talk to freinds with miatas and such, get on the forums and plug it, keep posting to get attention, all these things which Ive been doing on miataturbo.net, miata.net, clubprotege, and clubroadster. we should get a better turnout.
So lets do this!!! I want results and its not about me its about the group.

If you dyno it, you should put 225s on the back for show.
