Mod of Sunday:

Got Mr. Takao Kijima to sign under the hood of my car. For those of you that don't know who he is or why he is so important.. Mazda Canada flew him in from Japan for this years Topless Sun Run. The Topless Sun Run is a meet, cruise and dinner for 350+ Miata owners. Mr. Kijima designed and developed the first Miata's in the 1980's and is still one of the head designers today in the new Miata's that hit the showroom floors. I must say, it is SoOooOoOOoo JDM to have his signature on my car

Finally got this shit all back together by 2am. Went for a spin and all seems 'ok' with a few misc sounds. I'll be the one driving around without a hood today. Broke the hood release while re-installing the engine.

well I put a 3" shroom filter my brother got me (just a cheap one) and it fit nicely onto the factory intake hose that comes off the airbox, so I just stuck it on there, and removed the top half of the box (I left the bottom for air direction). My car sounds the same at lower throttle but when I floor it it makes a nice mean growl around 3k rpm. Not too bad for a APC filter from Princess Auto :P

I had one of those filters back when I was in high school. It was a great filter, it filtered out birds and large rocks and thats about it. I threw it in the garbage when I finally took off the intake tube and found there was more dirt in the tube than there was in my engine bay.. needless to say, after running it for a month I ended up having to rebuild the engine. Only reason i decided to check the intake tube in the first place was to find out why i was burning so much oil.

Those filters are horrible. I'd never run myself. They look like the plastic surround would melt with anything above 30degrees

yeah there was some duct in there so I took it off...and when I re-installed the top hald of the box I realised the sensor wasn't even plugged in before, so A) dust was getting in the hole before and B) that would explain why my car would randomly bog down, the ECU wasn't getting the right reading. probably also why my fuel economy was so shitty.

ya jordan either use K&N filter or APEXi. APEXi is better long term, as you never have to re-oil/clean them as you do the K&N. all you do with APEXi is take it out MAYBE once a year and blast it with a bit of air

taurus 3.8L fans pull some serious fking air... i know a number of heavily modified z31's running them without cooling issues... should be able to keep the s10 nice and cool
