It's most likely going to end up being com 4 or 5. Nothing wrong with Green Filters, same thing as K&N.

MY EMANAGE TALKED TO MY COMPUTER!!! I almost didn't belive it at first! Quick question, does the car need to be running to import or export data? I tried to import with just the key on and it said "corresponding" and the loading bar didn't move. Tommorow I'm going to run olderguys instructions to get it started. I'm going to search for all the information I can on the emanage, is there any sources you guys would reccommend? And for the bad news, my downpipe gaskets were leaking but its my manifold gasket thats leaking and causing the noise. So now I need to pull it all off again to replace it. I'm almost there!!

Yeah this whole build has been a pile of problems! But every time I solve one I get a good sence of acomplishment. One additional question, after searching the emanaged miatas forum I found a site that sells the boost sensor for $99 and harness for $30. If I bought just the harness, could I not cut the end off and attatch it to my 3 wire MAP sensor and use the other end to get the stock emanage connection?

Heres how I have been driving around since monday
P1010029.jpg
Underhood temps have been very low!

Here is my torn apart interior, and the air filter I need to fab up a bracket for so I can put my hood on, will be doing that monday
P1010040.jpg

A better veiw, here you can see how big my stupid air filter is from the JRSC (SHITTY!!) and why it wont fit.


And here is my oil return. If you haven't seen my post about it, this alone took me 7 hours to finish. Its -10AN line, I think it makes the engine bay look pretty clean. (Feed is -4AN)

My power steering line was loose and leaked all over, hence the buildup of dirt. Will be getting to that and my valve cover shortly. Thanks for looking!

yeah, 7. I read of people doing it in an hour to 45 min. I just dont know how they can do it! I just got back from my towns local tuner hangout, and everyone seems to think my car can do 0-60 in like 2 seconds. "a turbo in a miata?! thats crazy". We don't have enough miatas here in detroit.Sometimes I feel like the only one

hour 1 was moving the p.s. hose out of the way and trying to get the damn 7/8ths inch step bit started. Hours 2 and 3 were spent drilling the hole. I was TERRIFIED of hitting the oil pickup, so I took my time. Due to using a step bit I had a really steep angle on the hole I drilled. Hours 4 and 5 were spent using the 1/2" pipe tap to bore the angle out of the hole. I spent a whole 15 minutes actually threading the hole. Then I spent hour 6 and 1/2 cleaning out the shavings. I made sure it was CLEANED OUT! The last 1/2 hour was the worst, I put in my oil bung. I was so nervous of stripping it out from over tightening. Then I put on my 4 tubes of JB Weld and hoped REALLY hard it worked. And it did. I walked away with one important lesson....take the time to get a 23/32nds drill bit, will make life ALOT easier!
