Oh, the timming belt took about 3 hours, but that was becaust the bolt holding the tentioner pully to the block was stripped out. That's was caused the problems in the first place I'm guessing. Anyway I had to drill out the old threads and put a helicoil in so the original "special" bolt could be used.

Ryan, I wasn't talking about cars you blew up... I was talking the time we went to Bendover for the races... Maybe it was a green GT you had. When we chased down the Mustange GT. Mustang GT + Probe GT + MX-6 LS @135 MPH = Hell yeah that was fun!
Yeah, that was the green machine...Dude, I'm smiling so big just remembering that moment right now

Otherwise all I have are a K&N filter, Magnacore wires, Illumina's, all new bushings, an aggressive alignment, ...and snow tires on the stock rims right now. Those are the only mods allowed in the class I have been racing in, and the Tire Rack sticker is required at National level events. (Otherwise I wouldn't put a banner on my windshield)

But I'm actually selling the car now.
As much as I love it, I have always wanted a Miata, and now is the time to get one. If I could afford to keep both I would be overjoyed, but I just can't. (Not that I don't have garage space ... I do!)

Hey, those OBX POS's can sound nice...but I'd still take a Magnaflow

And I've always loved the sound of a KL with decent exhaust...The right combo always has a Ferrari -esque sound to it...especially opened piped

And how many miles on your car...and how much are you wanting for it? I just picked up your twin tonight, a '94 Red LS loaded with black leather interior, 168k miles and needs a bit of work for $1400...so it's not the best time to buy another car...but I'll be getting an insurance settlement soon...and hell to have THREE red 'LS's...if the price is right

I am asking more than anybody on this board will pay. $3300k

Everyone will scream "WHAT? $3300 for a an MX? Are you crazy? No way!" ...But I'm not trying to sell it to someone on here, I'm trying to sell it to an autocrosser who wants the perfectly set-up MX6 that they can take to Nationals and trophy in if they're a good enough driver. This car is set up to the limits of Stock Class rules and comes with 3 sets of wheels. (stock, BBS convertable RX7's and Rota's)

In this car I ran the fastest time in my class on the second day at Nationals. In fact I ran the fastest time in both G-Stock Ladies, and open G-Stock. (Which is good, because I sucked wind the first day! )

But that will mean nothing to anyone except another autocrosser. Therefore the only person who would see the value of the setup of this car, is another autocrosser. Otherwise it's a 132,000 mile MX6 in excellent shape with nice shocks and a wierd alignment and a great sounding exhaust.


Edit to add: I always thought the KL sounded like half a Ferrari with a decent exhaust too. One of the many things I am going to miss.

$3300 isn't bad. A couple months ago I'd have given you $3000 for it. Then I would have taken it to get an alignment and a Ravin muffler.

Magnaflows are good for the flow, but they are a little tinny sounding on the upper end. Plus I think the 5" tip looks a little ricy. Just personal prefrence. Sorry to here your selling out. And before we even met. :no: My sister has a Miata... I love my MX-6 so much more.

Ryan, glad to here your on the right track. Please tell me this one has a running engine in it! It'll be nice to have a couple 2 gen MX's together again.

It Purrs like a kitten...So sweet sounding.

And don't count $3300 as too bad especially with three sets of wheels...I acually expected you would be asking somewhere near that for it. So, if the timing is right and you haven't sold it yet, you may have a buyer...I'd love to step into an Auto-X ready car and get learning with that. Like I said, I'll be picking up a check for $9k early next week, part of which will pay leftover medical bills, varous other bills, buy some goodies, and the rest to investing.

Tell, me...how do the look upon Japanse (KLZE ) motors...and would they even know it was one

Rules are policed by your competitors in your class. At the local level most people wouldn't know, or wouldnt notice or wouldn't care. Rarely does anybody really look hard at someones car unless it is obviously not legal. Its just for fun and bragging rights. So I guess you can say we do it on the honor code.

At the National level, you can bet the competitors are going to scrutinize your car if you are doing well, and there are some sharp cookies there. They know their stuff about virtually every competitive autocross car available at this time. (They make it their business to know ) My car didn't really get looked at all that hard, but thats because everyone at Nationals in my class already knew the car!

Nice...Well, I bet I could sneak a KLDE intake manni on a ZE, keep some power...

He he, nah, that's too much cheating, and probably wouldn't help that much anyway, I would still have to drive good, and if I couldn't do that I know a ZE won't help much anyway...

On that note, I'm good at parking lot antics...but have never tackled cones before. One way or another I'd like to do more this year. I've got the time and funds so I'm all for it.

Fox 13 news is supposed to have a story on the upcoming racetrack for Utah at 5pm news.

BTW, my car already has some aftermarket muffler on it, but I have no idea how to tell what kind it is... I'm assuming it's just something cheap, but how can I figure out what it is?

If I saw it I could help...though it's likely an Ebay, no-name brand.

And racetrack for Utah? You mean RMR or something else? I know one of the news stations was having some undercover type of thing on the street racing scene....?

No, it's about the new Miller Motorsports Park out in Tooele. It's going to be a real racetrack with track days, and races and everything! A 4 mile track that can be subdivided into 2 seperate 2 mile tracks.

http://www.millermotorsportspark.com/

Am I excited? YOU BET!!!

On my car: I'm not trying too hard to sell it, I love it a lot. I guess I should try harder I don't want the Miata I have picked out to sell.

But letting go of my car (Kitty) will be way hard. Way, way, way hard.

Wow...As often as I've wanted to see this happen...now it is...

WIll it really be done this year? Can we really be road racing by fall?!? I'm so enthralled...

And if you do decide to sell it, I'd love to make sure it stays close to home and in the hands of a dedicated Mazda and autosport enthusiast [/brown nosing]

And on that topic did you know...

This is kinda random, but I have an a/c question. Today I discovered that my compressor doesn't work at all. It could be the compressor, it could just be a relay. When I press the switch, it lights up, but nothing happens. So my questions are thus: does anybody here have the know-how to check that out (or care to?) and could I pull the compressor from my recently wrecked I4 and throw it in my V6?
