its been done for a while, its undrivable 3-6 weeks a year, 100+ with above 70% humidity. it runs to warm for those days. but i have my ranger to drive in winter and when its just to damn hot to drive the miata.

im gonna dig up an old thread for a rant. so im on my way home from work tonight and a raccoon runs out in front of me. i hit it and it knocks out an intercooler pipe, so at this point im just trying to keep it going. keep it going and get home. so i get out and look and see that it didnt break the front bumper, look underneath the car and theres antifreeze running. look and from what i can see in the dark is the intercooler pushed the push fans into the radiator while it was spinning. we will see more tomorrow. well ----

i am getting way to good at taking the car apart. just saying.
on impact the raccoon hit the bottom of my intercooler, pushing that back into the radiator. and the body went flying and looks like it hit my exhaust. the intercooler has no leaks with a water test, so i will be reusing it. brackets are toast though.
