That's the beauty of a cc, you have a little bit of time to put a stop on things.

Thanks! The old girl has a lot of small nicks and scratches but still looks good if you don't scrutinize her too closely

The maple tree in my front yard decided it wanted to pollinate all over the cars in my driveway, including the miata. washed the Mustang, Miata, Eclipse, and the Ranger. Buffed the Ranger and put a heavy coat of wax on it for the season.

Hmmm, I wish I could get that kind of mileage. Today I went for a mountain ride and drove 172 miles. About 70 miles of mountain twisties and the rest 65~75 mph highway. All with the top down, I only managed to get about 25.5 mpg.

I get 18~19 in the city and around 26 on the highway. I might be running too rich all the time though. I don't have a sophisticated fuel management. All I have are 1.8 injectors and an AFPR. IIRC, I was running about 10:1 A/F at 9 psi boost the last time it was on a dyno about 7 years ago.... Well, at least it was fun flogging it in the twisties. And takinga few pictures too.





These pictures were taken somewhere along GA SR60 Southeast of Suches, GA

Got my vTPS wired in (changed over to TPSdot in TS), Overrun enabled, $20 DIY intake done, and a little more tuning.

I now have a small idle droop issue when coming to a stop now. Nothing a little tinkering in the MS cant fix.
