well the motor is comin apart in the next week or so... :shock: Was really unexpected..... as I didn't even get it out of my driveway with the new turbo setup and 4 grand in parts and engine management.... which really sucks, really really sucks (*,)

so I figure I'll take the downtime to make some changes.... thicker headgasket to lower the compression a bit, ARP studs, clutch and flywheel, and a re-fresh of the shortblock (used) that FM is sending me this week.

I've heard that HKS has a headgasket that's 2mm thick, but it runs about 200 bucks... anyone know where I can get it cheaper? or of a comparable alternative???

Anyone know of any FI cams for the miata????

A cheaper alternative to FM's Clutch "happy meal" (the price doesn't make me happy at all)?????


And most importantly.... Any cool beans JDM parts I should add while the motor is out???

do the protege valve cover swap, its cheap and will give you clean and easy access to the adjustable cam gears you'll also have to buy.

I have the HKS 2.0 mm and paid around $200 for it. It lowers your compression from 9.4 to 8.71.

I have the Cometic multi-layer steel head gasket, I bought it for like $70 shipped from Horsepowerfreaks.com.

I'm not sure if it drops the compression or anything.
