And the MX5 saga continues...


Today I changed the oil with some Redline 5w20 at the dealership since I didn't find some Motul 0w30 8100 X-Lite at the racing auto parts shop I go to all the time. I learned that I had a link to replace on the front right suspension but overall, the car is in great shape. I then changed the idler pulley since it was spinning kind of crooked.

And the MX5 saga continues...

And the MX5 saga continues...

With this done, the ECU got resetted again. (Keep that in mind)
I then removed the KIA branding that was on the car since I picked it up in Kia dealership and added a chrome frame for the plate that I had laying around.

Then I took it for a test drive....boy oh boy, THE INSANE ACCELERATION IS BACK!!!! It's like I wanted it to be!

So this is what I replaced/or fixed so far on it:
-Wipers 40$
-High beams / day lights 23$
-Air filter 35$
-Motor oil 120$
-Cleaned the MAF
-Cleaned the throttle body
-Changed the spark plugs 80$
-Replaced the idler pulley 60$
-Changed the rear tires 80$
-Changed the batteries on the remotes 10$
-Changed all the rusted bolts and nuts I've found. 7$
-Lubricate all the rubber seals and key holes with some silicone spray.
-Grease the mecanism of the PRHT, the doors hinges and locks.
-Remove the goddamn KIA branding on the car.

Now all that is left to do is:
-Change the diff fluid and clean the diff.
-Change the transmission fluid.
-Get a new head unit.
-Decide if I want to stay 17 inch or go 18 for rims and get summer tires.
-Change the rotors and pads and inspect the calipers.
-Change the coolant at the dealership.
-Change the suspension link on the front right side.
-Nourish the leather.
-Polish the tailpipes.

The extra that can wait:
-Brake ducts.
-Coilovers.
-Dashcam.
-Moto-east intake.
-Smart top module.
-Replace the ground cable on the battery. (Verdigris)

After all this, I'll be a happy man.
