    It's the ol 'give a mouse a cookie' scenario....if I go ST mani, I need a FMIC...if I go FMIC, I'll need a Bayson R Grill to let it breathe...if I buy a Bayson R grill, I'll of course need to buy more body kit pieces to put the look all together...lol

    Then again, that's what I love about cars anyway so...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    oh I know I don't need it, but I'd want to show off a purty FMIC :) So...more of a metaphysical need than a literal one.

    Yes...no option to order replacement ram. They would pull from a in box stock. But very low stock in stores..unless I drive 2-3 hours. So awaiting restock. But 1982 small bottle jack (my first one!) did the job nicely.

    Got around to installing wheel bearings. I was getting an audible clunk and click going over small bumps in the road. CV axles are next. Invest in quality snap ring pliers too. ToolBearing.jpg

    Serviced the Xcell VTA BOV today... while I was in there took a look at the inter cooler piping, and found the both the inlet and outlet pipes to be starting their walk off the top mount. Sorted that shit out fast.
    Boost coming on much better now... here I was thinking the hot weather had killed some boost.

    Got around to installing my motor but now have a fuel issue. Hpfp pressure reads 0 on the accessport.
    Gonna dig in today and try to find out why.

    Probably ground by hpfp or the pmm ground pretty classic, also ensure connector on hpfp is snug. There's also a ground on the transmission that should be snug. Basically: when in doubt check grounds

    Grounds are good.

    12v to pump I can hear it come on and stay constant (320lph aem in tank), but hardly pumps gas coming directly off the top hat. Pulled pump and filter looked really dirty/clogged. Bench tested pump and it's fine, thinking it's the filter. Have to wait until tomorrow for my wife to order one (she works at a Mazda dealership), then gonna go from there.

    That pesky OEM filter could certainly do it. Good luck

    Saturday I went and did some work on the Miata. Put a new antenna on it since my powered retractable stopped working. Installed a hard plastic trunk guard on the left side so if something rolls it won't damage the quarter panel.

    Also went to install my GT2860 turbo but it turns out the wastegate flap on my 5 bolt housing was too small for the hole on the new CHRA. I shined a flashlight in there and could see faint light with it closed.

    I installed a new coolant reroute housing as well since the new turbo would be water cooled however I ended up having to plug the two new ports on the housing until I can properly install the larger turbo.

    Last thing I did was get 3/8 aluminum tubing and cut/flare it to run a cleaner crankcases intake setup. I currently run just one catch can from manifold to valve cover then the fresh air port to turbine inlet pipe.

    Coming soon with the new turbo is 900cc to injectors, 6 speed trans and 3.63 diff with subframe that has upgraded bushings, MR2 hubs and a few other things. I probably should start to focus on the Speed once I get this stuff in.

    Wasn't the problem.

    Pump out of tank flows fine. Pump in tank, even with 12v and new filter, doesn't flow. I can hear it spinning, and constantly on, but still no flow. Should I look at the regulator?

    Not sure this is more than my knowledge on the fueling system, I'd create a troubleshooting thread for it and hopefully some more experienced folks chime in

    I am currently working through making an OEM style basket again as I am going CS fuel cell for PI. Here is what I have found.

    These guys https://www.highflowfuel.com/ sell our filter for cheap "3 - pack 20$" a TON of cars use our same exact basket but with different top hats. "CHECK HERE" They also sell an OEM pump replacement that comes with a filter. "HERE"

    I also recently needed to find a in basket / in tank pressure regulator and bought this. Standard Intermotor Fuel Injection Pressure Regulator - Part # PR344 Line: STI Pretty sure this is the OEM who makes the valves for these cars but either way it should work great. I had looked at Mazda and they were a little cheaper but also the wait time on the part was forever. I will be installing and testing it in the next few weeks. Seems like a ton of other cars have this same setup.

    Thanks for the info. I ordered the filter from the dealer and it was in the next day.
    The car starts now, but won't stay running unless I hit the gas.
    Multiple codes
    Maf high voltage
    IAT high voltage
    Fuel pressure sensor circuit low voltage
    No communication with ABS module
    Instrument cluster not receiving or transmitting on the can bus
    More work ahead
