If you're about to be homeless in a few days, I think it's time to rethink things... By all means if you can get a kickstarter going for a small business, do it. But if not, time to get rid of the...

Old electronics fry one another in the case of the series 5 OMP and ECU. If you change a bad OMP to a good one, the ECU is probably bad. Because you now have a bad ECU and put in a new OMP, it...

If they are going to crush it, they already gave someone maybe $200 or so for it (scrap metal value). So offer $400 and see what happens.

Since you've gone standalone, you've more than likely eliminated the thermowax and BAC valve. Idle is now going to be very low cold, and very high warm. Start the car and see if it idles. If it...

How cheap are you? Buy the $28 piece from mazdatrix, and buy some other crap on the website while you're at it. Get a sticker. Get a key chain. Whatever.

You're fighting $28, really?

"Anybody see any issues with just drilling them out a bit and tapping them for a brass nipple to put the hose on instead?". No issue there. Easy fix to tap aluminum and put in new brass.

Unless that throttle is held open nearly 80%, the engine is not going to rev out to 5500RPM on a start up. You...

That was probably their thinking. Really, you might as well leave it. Since you're still using the thermowax, the water has to run back to the water pump. What other route would you send it?...

^reminds me of when I first got my TII years ago. I found a marker cap used to block off a vacuum nipple.

It has a solenoid. It should only get vacuum (has a check valve). The vacuum holds it in place, and then at 2700ish RPM it "let's go". It's not really a boost switch, more of an RPM switch.

Everyone should remove the stock fan because it sucks. If you add an electric fan, you gain like 20HP. Also, ditch the thermowax because it adds heat to the intake, robbing you of at least 15HP! ...
