Nothing is wrong with hard dog, i have a hard dog bar myself. That model of bar, The Ace, is not one I like. I found it surprising because i didn't think anyone actually bought them.

oh okay, doesn't really bother me, it's just a toy for now. i may drive it to work every now and again. i have to get my turbo issues worked out, the shaft itself actually snapped, so i think getting a whole new turbo is going to be my best bet.

my spec v is my technical "daily"

oh, and do you know of anywhere i can get a gasket kit for the greddy turbo? i checked on google products for quite a while, i only found them on ebay, is there any actual dealer that you know of?

I'm not a greddy guy myself. You might be able to buy everything from greddy USA.
Greddy - Founded and Driven by Racers
There was some noise about them going bankrupt but I was told they're going to support the Spec Turbo Miata series so you should have no issues getting parts.

i'm not suprised. he was trying to sell, and at the time i was selling my 01 dodge ram, that isn't really worth jack to anyone anymore, so we traded, i got TONS of extra parts, including a new DP of some brand that isn't stamped on it, looks really high quality, though.
