Not sure if engine swapped, or seller doesn't know what he's talking about.

Yeah I think I have a spare laying around. Bring the bolt and there's a 90% chance you'll leave with a free nut for it.

Richard you use chrome? There is a check box in the chrome settings for request desktop. I usually hit that before I go to cr.net and I skip the whole mobile bullshit.


Hey Josh, do you happen to have the nut that goes on the transmission bolt right next to the clutch slave loop crap? I was checking out my valve cover leak and saw the bolt was just hanging out about an inch out last night.

Ill be building the manifold in 2 weeks. Hopefully I can squeeze in dyno time before I go back to Corvallis. Still need to figure out an intercooler setup but otherwise I'm pretty close to bring ready to go.

Hell yes, I'd love to dyno laz's 1.6 motor again with a turbo. Or even without.

Möbius, press the menu icon in the upper left and then scroll to the exit Enhanced Mobile view.



Happy thanksgiving all! Drove back up to Portland to see family and made it just fine. Couple small coolant leaks but nothing a little tightening of clamps wouldn't help.

Now time to eat turkey!

Yeah I much prefer running desktop experience on my iPhone. I work with mobile optimized and responsive experiences at work.. sometimes I just refer desktop. Forum use is one of those instances.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

My iPhone asks every time I visit the site and I just hit cancel and it'll stay in normal view. Still annoying but better than the "enhanced" view...

Mobius Is there any way to force desktop view on mobile devices. It is better than before but still totally sucks ass.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I've got a catch can setup that I will eventually set up but for now can I just run one of the little breather filters over the drivers side valve cover breather? Or do I need to retain the stock vent to intake system. No boost yet.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Thanks guys. I know I can get FelPro close and easy. I was also concerned about needing to stay Mazda. I'll probably take Josh's advice and just snag a FelPro tomorrow... and some permatex. I don't know where mine is.

Thanks again!

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Fel-pro is great and cheap and easily available.

Install it right with two clean surfaces, a new gasket, and RTV in the correct 6 locations. If it still leaks, you've done something wrong or it's not the valve cover.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Most important thing is torquing to spec and in the right order too

I'd stick with Mazda gaskets as much as possible.

Curly... Best valve cover gasket for a 1.6? Think I'm just going to replace it in my journey to kill my oil leaks...

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I don't, no. Won't fit anyways. Ebay ones like Ryan's and mine are only $40 shipped.

I've been wanting to make up a master cylinder brace but I don't even have the shock tower brace. Do you have the other side of yours that you cut up? I wouldn't mind trying to make that one work for the drivers side.

Getting closer:



Its all little things from here on out. Also rewiring the MS3 for sequential ign/inj.

If you see anything that needs fixing let me know. I think I'm gonna need some heat shielding on the heater lines.

aidandj It was really chipped and I wanted to try powder coating it.

I preferred the flat red wrinkle paint over the shiny red.
