    Yep I remember that happening to mine. Removing the intake/airbox gives you much more room to maneuver.
    Also, many curse words were dropped along with the install.

    I had everything clear, the best I could find on Miata.net is people saying you can take it out whole

    Being an automotive classes can have its benefits, we were supposed to pull out brake master cylinder is today, but seeing as I got one for my car for Christmas, I got to put that in, good news is is that it won't leak anymore, bad news is that it doesn't seem to have improved much, however I desperately need front brake pads so I will report back after that, I also did some digging into why my exhaust sounds so horrible, I found this.



    All of the welds holding the inlet into the muffler have broken so I can spin that around, i'm going to see if a local muffler shop can weld that while I wait for some spare funds to get a better exhaust, for the moment I took it off and I will be rocking the hater pipe for the next couple of days

    Hopefully its a good muffler shop. As the rest will melt when they put a torch to it. I likely have a 1.6 muffler here as needed.

    STOP......Brake Time. Conveniently my MOPAR classes for this semester includes Brakes and Suspension so I went ahead and got EBC green stuff pads and I was hoping to turn my old poweslot rotors, well that didn't work out but I ended up with this



    I definitely needed pads lol



    The old power slot ones were stamped with 16mm minimum thickness, they had 16.7 not enough to make them good and still be safe so I got O'Reileys blank rotors that seem pretty nice




    I found a coolant leak as well, I'll report on that later in the day.

    I found the coolant leak, one of those little hoses that runs out of the bottom of the thermostat got a hole in it just above the lower hose clamp

    Totally not my car but I've made my decision on shoes for Ashley, they will be wrapped in Dunlop DZ102's

    I've only had a few hours of drive time with it yesterday and I won't be able to drive for a few days due to wisdom teeth surgery. In what time I did have with it, I absolutely loved it and it's worth every penny

    Shout out to Randy, I now has wheels. I'm thinking of a jet glassy black or perhaps a graphite grey.

    Preliminary results as found by my friend shows that they are the standard silver which I kind of like, once I get the wheels back to my place and get all of it off I will have a think some more about whether I will paint them or not

    I can't thank Randy enough for the wheels and agreeing to meet my friend for the sake of convenience, he did tell me that two tires will need to be replaced so I am looking at Dunlop DZ102s, they have Toyo T1-S on them now so I'll put the two almost new ones of those at the front. Tomorrow I should be picking up a harness bar, so the list that remains is a top, alignment, seats, harnesses and finally a helmet.

    I've had the dz101 on the orange car for like 2+ years. I really liked them over the previous s drives. However during that period my car had neither the power or suspension setup to push them to the limit. I have a feeling that is going to change though...
