Ryo,

The intake for the mazdaspeed isn't as bad as for the 6s. there is no wiring to do. Takes about an hour total. Hardest part is getting the resonator out from teh wheel well. If you wanna stop by I can give you a hand with it but it really isn't that hard.

ive never done it but, i got tools and wouldnt mind helping so if u need a hand, let me know. sometimes its just nice to have extra eyes and hands to get things worked out.

plus, i want to hear how the intake sounds :)

im in oakland county though - not sure where you are but it may be a bit of a drive, im in SE MI.

Where in Oakland county are you Elite?? I'm in Novi area and Ryo (if I remember right) is in Farmington area around Cook Imports. We should get together and check out the cars. The intake sounds friggin' sweet. It's a little loud with the windows down but bareable.

Where in Commerce do you work?

And don't worry about times at the track, so far I suck at driving too. My best run was a 14.8 @ 93 with a 2.3 60'. I pulled a 2.0 60' on one run but missed 2nd because it came up so friggin' quick. I'm hoping to get down to Milan at least 2-3 more times this year and get down to a 14.0-14.2 range with the intake. If I get the catback and or downpipe I'd like to hit 13's.

On a side note... I kept up with a buddy of mine in his fully built mustang ( forged everything, cams, headers, exhaust all that jazz just waiting on a supercharger). His car has ran a 12.9 but his personal best at the track was 13.58 after about a dozen 14 second runs. During woodward we ran on M-59 from 50-125 about three times.... he never even pulled from me, he had maybe half a car off the start before I spooled up but then we stayed dead even. So our cars are quick even if we can't drive them. :)

BTW Zxc1104-> When're you coming to grab those Enkei's from my place????

Provided weather is decent on Wednesday i'll be spending the day at Milan. You're more than welcome to join if you'd like.

Chambers-> I've been to Milan twice in the speed. The first time I only had 200 miles on the car so I didn't even try to launch it (2.6-8 60's) and I only ran it out to 5k rpm. The second time I took the car down there I was still easy on teh launch slipping the clutch too much. I haven't beat on the car too much yet. I think I can pull out a 14.1 pretty easily once I launch it like it wants to be launched ;)

Ryo-> Did you get the intake yet? If you want to stop by the house we can install it pretty easily. Hardest part is removing the stupid resonator. And i don't post on here enough to really worry about my sig... I generally just browse and read but don't have much to say. For you, I'll fix it though :p

Anyone with this wednesday off and wants to run 'em at Milan I'd enjoy some competition/company.

Zxc1104-> My only day off this week is Wednesday. I work 230-11 on Tuesday and Thursday but if you wanna drop by earlier we can do that. By the way, have you seen or talked to Rich lately? He still owes me money and he stoped returning my phone calls......
