At least I shipped the injectors in the same box or you could wind up getting them one at a time too!

looks like the other box got delivered this morning.

Hopefully I do get the injectors by Friday, then I'll swap shocks, toss in my rear rotor upgrade kit, and swap the injectors on Saturday.

That sounds like quite the upgrade. Already did your taxes?

Taxes just paid down debt. This was workings of trade and barter.

I has installation summary thread. Read it before installing and it will make set up simpler.

Oh, and full soft. Something that Y8s pointed out that is true.

Y8s will be there to help, repayment for helping swap brakes on his Civic...But I know the method.

What I'm trying to figure out is if I wanna go to a 4K rear spring. I'd like the 4.5K but Tein doesnt make it in the length I'd want, only 6" or 10". I think I'd need 7-8"

do i point out a lot that is not true??

yeah I'll be helping him. nearly maximized bump travel and reasonable ride heights. then we will make him drive on the standard 6k springs in the rear and see how he likes it in the rear

lol! I'll stick with the miata.

And if we move to where we are looking it it will end up being more like 3 miles.
