I need to know how much you guys think this car is worth if I tried to sell it. Not saying I am, but I know what I paid, and I want to know what it's worth to know where I ended up on the deal.

Braineak - found your faq (right under my nose obviously), great resource!

Well, basically I'm considering all my options with the cars I have at the moment and want to know what the going value for a miata set up like this. I picked it up on a local import forum.

Basically, I want to know what I could reasonably get for it on ebay or autotrader or here.

I want to keep it and most likely will, just covering all my bases in case I can't sell my Evo.

I need to find a driver side mirror for it too...stupid thing broke...

Alright, got another legitamate question. I want to bring the boost back down to 5-6 psi. There is no boost controller, which way do I adjust the wastegate rod? Longer or shorter? I'm guessing shorter?

Thanks again guys, got the recal discs coming in and am still looking for some 1.8L injectors.

Make the overall rod longer to reduce boost with the wastegate rod. Loosen the nut and turn the end counterclockwise. Keep trying the rod on the pin until it just holds snugly pulling the wastegate closed.

Well, I'm an idiot. I had some vicegrips on the part of the actuator rod that goes over the wastegate are and was trying to loosen the locknut. Felt it start to turn, and it felt right but it was the whole rod because the vicegrips were slipping. I only turned it about a half turn or so, so I hope it's ok. Had to meet up with the gf for dinner though so I didn't get a chance to check.

Best way to check other than running it on the car? One of the mity-vac pump/vac combos?

What do the wastegate actuators cost if I did waste it....

Sidepipe is just a cobbled up thing. I'll grab a pick though.

turning the rod in the wastegate a little isn't going to damage it. just run compressed air into it and see if the rod still opens. otherwise see if you boost still gets held, if it skyrockets, then it's not working.
