  •   stillsteezy It lives! 15h
  •   batintheattic @stillsteezy haha well she does live but still doesn't run proper. I'm looking for either a throttle body with a TPS and IAC valve together or just a TPS and IAC valve. She doesn't want to idle. Same issue I had before i put the built motor in her. So I want to replace those and if that doesn't fix it I guess I'll try something else. So if any of you protege dudes have any of those parts please DM me. Looking to get her fixed this weekend. 15h
  •   mazdaspeedp I had same problem with my built motor. If u drive it for a while the idle gets allot better 15h
  •   batintheattic @mazdaspeedp it had this problem before I put the motor in. 15h
  •   mazdaman2002 Don't stare at the gauges so hard. 12h
  •   batintheattic @mazdaman2002 I do what I want! 11h

batintheattic Finally picked up some MP3 interior as well to get rid of the shitty eBay seat and that horrid 03.5 yellow stitching. Now @ashaleeeeeee can ride passenger and not hit her head on the roof. 1w

batintheattic Yet another project floating around @chefsp0t garage. I never get tired of seeing those beautiful 90s Mazda body lines. Hearing this thing spool up and crack waste gate next to me is going to be heaven. #mazda #mx6 #90s #kldet #turbo #thisthinghasHUGEbrakes #morerarestuffthanatitanicexhibit 1w

batintheattic Before and after. Was never a fan of clear or smoked lights so I found me some MP3 side markers to match the front corner lights. Couldn't be happier. 1w

  •   __the_captain__ Yesss 2w
  •   mr_infek There's a fully forged Mazda/Ford engine? Looks like an MZR 2w
  •   batintheattic @mr_infek its an FSDE 2.0. Factory motor for proteges, mx6, 626, and ford probes. I'm sure they stuffed it into other things too. But yes mine is now fully forged with K1 Long Rods (8.8:1) and Wiesco Pistons (.020 Overbore) 2w
  •   mr_infek @batintheattic nice. Phew! Glad you're not getting the MZR. that's a shitty, thin walled cast engine. 2w
  •   batintheattic @mr_infek MZR's are backwards if you ask me. Haha and the FS isn't much better but not looking for big power numbers just reliability. Go out, fire her up, drive the living piss out of her, and put her away tail waggin. 2w
  •   mr_infek Good idea. I'm sure that FS engine is waaaaaay better option though. Good luck! 2w
  •   fox.e_johnson Any suggestions for some fine tuning in mine? Don't want to invest in 5-600$ rods and pistons. I got the stock engine that's the only problem 2w
  •   batintheattic @fox.e_johnson get a wideband, a split second tuner, and stay at stock boost. Best advice I can give you. 2w

batintheattic For $13.49 and working on it during my lunch break I call this a win! A bit darker than I wanted to go but in the sun does she sparkle! 2w
  •   mazdaman2002 Is that red? 2w
  •   fua_d Thats a sweet color.... I want to call it Ron Burgundy 2w
  •   batintheattic @fua_d haha I really like that! Its actually a lot lighter in the sun. I couldn't be happier for less than $15 in high temp rattle can. 2w
  •   fua_d Nice bro can't wait to see it all together 2w
