Default oil pan q and downpipe

I am new here and trying to find the info, but I am retarded. I was wondering what all I will need to tap the oil pan for the greddy kit. Also, where is a good place to get a 2.5" downpipe from. I am from the domestic crowd, and I got my miata for a daily driver. My z28 now gets about 7mpg in town due to the motor that I put in. The thing is real sick, but bad gas mileage has forced that one out.

****, also wanted to ask about high idle problems. The car will idle fine when first started, but will stay up after the gas is hit. Does that sound more like a vacuum leak or a bad idle control motor. Also, on my camaro I was able to just pull this off, and shoot it with carb cleaner. Can I do that with this one also.

hey, welcome to the family. As far as the tapping of the pan goes, I think you will need a 1/2" tap with a steel barbed fitting (the biggest one you can find with 1/2" thread) you can get the barbed fitting from napa, thats where i got mine after wasting time talking to pimple faced teens at home depot and pep boys that dont know their *** from their elbow. the best 2.5" downpipe is the one you can get from TurboTony on this forum. Just email him, i think its [email protected] or look up his username on the forum. As far as that idle problem goes, mine had the same problem, it would idle high after the gas is hit and if i pulled up on the peddel with my foot it would return to normal. Turns out it was the throttle spring, just replace it and you will be good to go.
