  1. Any miata/v8 miata peeps here?

    i'm deffo not going to make any improvements to stiffin it up yet, the additional roll and slop make up for the lack of power in the 1.6, lol. However, you do have a ND that has a bit more power in stock form so some stiffening may make for better feel and more confidence. And yes, I have...
  2. Any miata/v8 miata peeps here?

    This kit was the first kit that came to mind before looking at conversions. I thought about the civic I bought that costed me double when i decided to put a turbo kit on an old motor. A week after the greddy kit went on I was sending the block to golden eagle to get it bored, sleeved, and fit...

    Allwhiteeco, its crazy you posted this, about a week ago i saw the video on youtube of this car. This thing is a BEAST!!!
  4. Any miata/v8 miata peeps here?

    The one thing that drives me to wanting another subaru or wanting to keep this NA is that I feel conected to these two cars. Both suck for long distance driving, but feels like a dream when im hitting corners or doing some spirited driving. As far as price and reliability with AC, a brand new...
  5. Any miata/v8 miata peeps here?

    Long story short, getting another subaru is out of the question due to the fact that my daughter wont let me get rid of the 91 Miata that her great grandmother left us with prior to going to heaven...... I need a reliable, fun car again and the 100hp Miata is none of that. I mean, it is a pretty...
  6. Undercarriage car wash with skid plates safe?

    F150 Ecoboost Maintenance
    Sounds like an awesome plan, i'll get right on it! i actually took it in to another dealership in my area. The service associate i gave my truck was actually more personal with me. This dealership, the bays are not behind closed doors and i can actually sit there and watch them work on my truck...
  7. Undercarriage car wash with skid plates safe?

    F150 Ecoboost Maintenance
    I do all of the fluid changes myself, my truck was taken in for other reasons, this is an example of why I don't trust them. I change my oil every 3500-4500 ish miles depending on how much I tow. Have changed it over a dozen times with no issues but yet this happens the first time they drain and...
  8. Undercarriage car wash with skid plates safe?

    F150 Ecoboost Maintenance
    i would deffo do that if it was possible, no dealership will let you watch due to "liability" and will tell you to leave. i changed my oil on sunday and get ticked off about it every evening before i go to bed. talked to the service manager today and was told Pete, "my best tech", did the work...
  9. Undercarriage car wash with skid plates safe?

    F150 Ecoboost Maintenance
    that is my first thought, but atm i am having trust issues with the dealership. it took me leaving them a bad review after they stated they would not cover the original leak. two days after i left a horrendous review their warranty manager called me in and told me they would cover it, they made...

    Undercarriage car wash without skid plates safe? So....... my 16 3.5 EB went in to dealership under warranty to get the timing cover leak fixed and they got everything covered in oil. I went to do my first oil change since I took it in and it looks horrible, it blows my mind that these guys did...
  11. Air bag mistake (maybe)

    F150 Ecoboost Towing
    Air bags will deffo help esp with saggy butt syndrome when towing. I have the 2000 and stayed away from the 5000 due to several reviews of rough rides and me throwing a lot more in the bed then axles will allow. “Looks level, throw more in there”. The vehicle deffo has the power to pull it...

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    16 F150 XLT, non sony, w/8in display... about a yr ago I decided to upgrade my sync version and ever since, every time I turn my truck on I get a message stating WI-FI is available...... How do I disable it? I've tried going into setting to turn off Wi-Fi so it would stop searching for it... I...
  15. Joined the frozen latch list

    2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    Just fell victim to this as well. I THOUGHT I dodged a bullet when nothing went wrong last year. This morning my truck unlocked fine, electronically. However, It would not close/latch whenever I tried closing the door. I knew it was a cold weather issue, so I started the truck up and after about...
