I put the car up in the air and sprayed the DP bolts with some rust buster, I'm getting ready to install the FMLE. Yes I know it's California, and yes that's why the license plates are blanked out  police



Instructions for the FMLE kit are almost non-existent at this point, probably because either most people already have one installed, or they are pros and don't need any filthy instructions... either way, I'm documenting my install here. I hear that Downpipe is fun to remove, I can't wait to start the job.

On another note, I ordered a NUE Front Under-diffuser for the Mazdaspeed Miata (what feels like a long time ago) and today I received an e-mail from Rev9:

Why does every photo that comes from Japan look like it was shot some time in 1978?



ETA @ Japan Warehouse : February 27th

I don't know what that means, is it arriving to Japan or is it arriving to my address?  Tongue

Interested on your thoughts on that NUE when it arrives. I saw that a few months back when I was researching splitter options.

 Yeah for a while I looked at the track dog air splitter, I was about to purchase it when I saw this one up for sale and thought, why not bring it to the U.S. for testing? It'll go on the car once I finish my current install. Pics will be up as soon as it arrives.

Subscribing for updates.  This is on my to-do list as well, your install will be a good reference when I do it.

FM DP & Exhaust installed!



I wouldn't call it a "How To" it's more like my experience.... Still, some may find it useful:

I finished installing my DP and exhaust today. Removing those rusty bolts on the downpipe while having an oil leak in the transmission is no joke! And wow, smelling the grease and degreaser under the car is not something I want to do again, add taking photos to that! Now I know why a mechanic is so expensive  buck2 in my case Mechanic/Photographer.

The thing about this car though, is that I don't do my own work to save a penny, I do it because I love this car and I love working on it. I haven't driven it in about 1 year but I love it so much, I'm happy enough having it sit in my driveway, waiting for me to get home so I can start figuring what to do next. I think after the FMLE install, it's time for a roll bar, or maybe a paint job so I can put all that body parts on? I'll have to figure it out but for now, I think I have enough to work on Smiley

Finished my FMLE install  Azn

Took some pics of my boost gauge install:



And my o2 mod:



Annnnnnddd I made a stand for my MBC Smiley




 
This is where I grabbed my boost/vac source for the boost gauge and O2 signal Modifier:



The side to the o2:


The other side that goes to the BPV


Through the firewall, under the steering wheel, this is where I inserted the line to the Boost Gauge, I also zip tied the T to a perfectly placed bolt near by:


Boost gauge installed:


Tools needed for o2 mod:


Start by stripping the white wire:


Locate the o2 wire location identified by FM:


Cut 2 ends like so, and make an incision down the middle:


Remove insulation:


And twist and turn it:


Remember to clean it with alcohol, and wrap it with insulation tape:


Repeat for the ground side and done!

Project G in Los Angeles, I contacted them through e-mail and I was able to get the front one. They are very friendly and helpful but they are pretty busy as well, you have to be patient in waiting for a response. As they say: "good things come to those who wait".

Someone contacted me about the v.3 rear tow hook (MSM rear lip compatible) and offered to sell his, but hang tight, I am in the process of fitting my rear skirt (diffuser) and I am not 100% sure that it will fit. I don't know if it's any lower than the MSM lip. If it doesn't fit, I'll let you know  afro

Cool thanks for the info!  Got the Garage star red steel ones but the rear doesn't fit well with the MSM bumper and really want to find the RR ones for convenient rear jacking point.
