Thanks. I'm happy with the decisions I've made thus far with respect to appearance. Other than the dents, hail damage, mismatched paint, and rust, I think it looks pretty good. A solid 20 footer.

I ended up ordering an LC-2 with a G5 analog gauge. I'm going to put the gauge in the left middle eyeball vent.

You didn't mention rods in your build. It's truly a shame you didn't upgrade rods while you had the engine apart... Nice looking car. I love white Miatas.

Yeah, when I built it I assumed that I would stay normally aspirated.

Right now anyway, I feel as though I will be happy with something in the 200-220 rwhp arena, so I should be okay.
