The gauges are his warbirds. I installed white leds for a clear bright modern feel. I'll post a night shot with them turned on. Also the meter Guage is separate made by Rs meters.

And I don't mind the critique at all it keeps me in check with sometimes lol

Welcome~! I absolutely love the warbird gauges, excellent choice. If I ever change mine, they will be the warbirds. I also really like the nardi wheel. Ive been looking for one myself. how flexible/sturdy are the nardis, if you dont mind me asking. Also how is gauge visibility with the 330mm? /threadjack

The gauges actuallY work well since they are positioned at 6 oclock which my arm or fist doesn't obstruct my daily driving speed limit check.

Matt- couldn't have been any more grateful to have you help me out when I needed to be saved. I now carry tow straps in my trunk because of you. I can finally say that I used that ridiculously big red tow hook in the back lol. When we go next year I owe you

Honestly it blocks visibility up top bit I love the size. I'd like to see a 340 but I wouldn't go 320.
I acclimated myself rpms and engine noise to know how many mph I'm going.

I did a compression test but will perform a leak down test next. I'm close to 150kish and still skeptical throwing a turbo kit on. I got 180 across the board with cylinder 4 being the lowest around 175. Now I did 6 cranks each. Sorry progress slowed down. The holidays and going on vacation prohibited me.

Sounds like it's ready for some boost. Do a leakdown test too if you are skeptical, but those are damn decent compression results on a 150k motor.

But if I kept cranking it over do you think it would continue to build up? And also does having my advanced timing wheel 13 or 14 degrees affect it as well?

U're asking if having the timing forward a bit will change the readings of the compression test? No it will not.

It's all good. It was time. We don't drive it, it's just being wasted sitting in the garage.

It's going to a member on here, so it'll "stay in the family," so to speak.


I'm not going anywhere, turns out i still have 2 miatas after this.

Absolutely! Hopefully won't be in a Miata (No offense meant to anyone, just means that i hope i'll be down to only 1 Miata), but i'll be there. Probably in the MX6.


You did a great job of resurrecting your car! Looks even better than before.
