    Nope. If it did I'd be biding my time until it broke, and have some money set aside for a full OME setup.

    It's nice up until it breaks though, basically free lift. It's stupid expensive to fix with factory parts, mostly because of the labor and the pump, from what I hear. However, doing it with all OME stuff isn't any worse than a 4runner or Tacoma lift.

    I will say, the factory suspension rides so nice off road I'm almost hesitant to do the OME stuff. I want it to ride just like it is, just sit like 2-3" higher.

    Sunuvabitch. So, I'm a god among men, and I know you guys feel like you're in my shadow all the time.

    Just to illustrate how human I am... the miata MAF is fine. Some dumbass forgot to plug it in after reinstalling it.

    honestly jim... i cant say this surprises me... you have been chasing your own tail ever since the word samuri got introduced into your vocabulary. you may want to go to the bathroom sometime today and check to make sure you remembered to put on YOUR underwear and not your wifes again.

    I didn't say I forgot. It was my mechanic, and that bastard is fucking fired. He doesn't even have a garage, he does all the work in my apartment parking lot! What a dick and a half. Ordering parts I don't need. :p

    Trying to get it all tuned up before autocross school next weekend, and it looks like I'm better off just leaving it alone with all of its faults.

    Hah, I guess FUNCTIONALLY that's what I want. I'd never do it. Well... I say that. I'd do the 1/2" one necessary to clear 35's if I ever went 35's.

    I'm gonna do the OME springs / torsion bars at some point, just going to do the softer spring rates, and probably do some other type of shock.

    I was completely kidding, I would not pay somebody to clean my MAF sensor, although maybe in this case it would have saved me 45 bucks.

    Although, Paul, for a bright guy... What kind of mechanics do you hire that come to your house?!
