Hey Winnipeg!!

Hey you guys in Wpg, wassup! I just bought my MX-6 about a month ago. I love it (of course). It's totally stock still, but I got no money to fix it up yet. Obviously I'm a frosh as far as this stuff goes. I'd like to see what you guys have. See ya.

Yeehaw. World of wheels: I'm there for sure, man. I wouldn't mind meeting you guys there.
Yeah, I go 2 the UofM. You?
Mine is 6-cyl, and it's "hunter green". It looks real nice.
But it's an old car and it feels like it's not at peak operating condition. It could use a nice tune-up and a front-end alignment.
Are you planning on some performance upgrades? I have so many ideas for mine its not even funny, if only I had some cash.
By the way, I live in Ft Richmond. And you?

Coo! Alright well, that makes 2 people I now know from University! I met another guy while using the computers in Dafoe Computer Lab! I turned around and saw someone was on the MX-6 Website! Weird! Anyway, chatted a few times! He's got a White MX-6 ( i think....)
Anyway, World of Wheels! Coo, Hey Mike, about this Saturday. Where and when are we meeting! I'd love to go! I think that would be just wicked! Zoomer, when do you have class usually on Tuesday and where abouts do you park? The reason why is that, I wanna check out someone elses Fog Lights to see how you have positioned them! I just installed some, but, am considering putting a rubber rim around them so they fit perfectly in the holes! Anyway, get back to me!
[email protected]
I bet I have seen you driving. Just last week I "flashed" a green MX-6 with my Brights to say "hi". Could have been you! I have only seen 2 green ones in the city!
And Mike, where could i have seen your car? School,etc..??
Later,

jdean: I have class every day, I park in U lot. By the time I get there I have to park really far.
Where do you park, and what color is yours? I'll keep an eye out for it. But tomorrow my car might not be there. I took it in last week to get a new timing belt and new drive belts (F***in expensive!!) and the morons at the shop didn't adjust one of the drive belts properly, so it makes that annoying squealing noise. :mad: I'm gonna go back there tomorrow and yell at them. Then on my way out I'll :V on their doormat. After that I'm not going back there again.
By the way, do you guys have good mechanics? I need to find someone good.
Yeah, I saw like 4 or 5 MX6's today, including another green one, and a white one with a cute girl driving. :D Hmm...

I met JDean55 in a computer lab, and have been running into a few times afterwards. I have a white mx-6 LS, I drive it to the U of M once in a while. I just hate the parking prices. Hey who's purplish-blue mx-6 LS I always parking near L lot all the time? It's a nice color for an mx-6. If you guys set up a time and place to meet, I'm up for it.

hey zoomzoom, i have the same problem right now. Gotta take mine back to the shop also, cuz i think the belt kinda stretched and it's making that annoying squeaking sound around my alternator. Hey do you guys know of any place in wpg where they sell bodykits for mx-6's? If not, i guess I'll have to head down to Regina this summer, so my friends there can find something for me. I've seen 2 red mx-6's a the university, but don't know who it belongs to. Mine's the white one with a red Mazda sticker across the windshield, and I usually park in the UC lot, or the paylot near fletcher.

Yeah, I got Andrew's email. I'm there for sure on Sat am to go to the WOW. Not too sure about Sat night, not too sure about Sunday.
And, about my belt, I WAS going to take it into the garage, strangely it has stopped squealing. Huh? Can a problem spontaneously fix itself? Suspicious. I'll keep an eye on it for now.
I'd be surprised to see a place selling kits for mx-6's in Wpg. In Wpg you might be able to get a totally custom fabricated job, if you have that kind of cash.
Anyway, lates....

basically it's a thermostat that opens up when the engine is not that hot. It also has a more free flowing opening so that the coolant can cool the engine much quicker than a stock thermostat.
(it is actually quite cheap. $5-$10)
No real horsepower gain.

Anywhere they sell thermostats.

Ask for one that opens up befor the stock one. I think it opens up at 150-160 degrees. Stock opens at 180. Don't quote me on those numbers though. I can't quite rememer. Try and find a good aftermarket one that has a wide opening.

In the winter, you will notice that your car heats up quicker, but the air that blows out of the ducts won't be as hot. (Not a big thing) My car generally heats up to operating tempuratures when sitting in the driveway in about 1.5 minutes now. befoer it took up to 4.
