  1. It’s always been silver? Unless you’re talking about my old Miata, this is a different one.
  2. Finally got a front lip on the Miata: So much to do, gotta stop being lazy and mail out my tax return lol
  3. Makes a hell of a lot of power though! And BATs below freezing
  4. Try methanol.... $6/gal and its goes even quicker.
  5. Reason for the built motor haha Along with an complete drivetrain swap. Miata transmissions, even the 6 speed I have can't hold more than 300lb/ft reliably.
  6. Wouldn't say 35 degrees... E85 isn't THAT amazing.
  7. 30-40 lbs! And E85 with 11:1 compression
  8. Man, things just work out sometimes. I think I've mentioned it before but my NB needs a rebuild, compression numbers were embarrassingly low. I have some money saved up for a rebuild, basically enough for all new OEM seals and gaskets, rebuilt cylinder head ($400, no initial core charge), new rings and bearings. But tax returns came around! Now I can afford to throw in that forged rotating assembly I've always wanted Wiseco pistons and Manley H-Beam rods, have shown to hold over 700hp! The first step in my plan, which gets really expensive but this is in a few years timeline lol. Also putting in ARP head and main studs, ACL bearings, and I've been considering buying the billet oil pump now as well, but that's another $400
  9. Car Max does this but they have transfer fees depending on how far away it is.
  10. You have to turn the covers inside out when you put them on. Just roll the cover on as you squeeze the hog rings into place. Keeps a much tighter fit over the foam. If it sticks you can reach in and push the foam in while you pull the cover further down.
  11. You say easy but it's actually a lot of work haha
  12. Probably about the same. They're not perforated like I would have preferred but for $125 I can't be picky. It was between reupholstering them for that price or getting new(er) seats for $300-500.
  13. Yeah, it's vinyl but the quality is still really great. They feel really nice, pretty soft almost like leather.
  14. Freshly reupholstered seats! I couldn't stand driving my Miata with those garbage ass seats... Before: And after, installed in the car: I know there are quite a few wrinkles but the upholstery will naturally shrink over the course of a few weeks. It's still really cold outside so I might speed up the process with a heat gun. Already a night and day difference though! I love how they feel and they only cost me $125 for the upholstery and about $5 in hog rings.
