      Carbon build up makes misfires worse, but if there were no misfires in the first place, there would be no carbon build up. I'd check for a vacuum leak. Like you, OP, I'd be very surprised if it...

      You would think so, but unfortunately that's not always the case. Thermo have had to close their Houston facility indefinitely precisely because they treated radioactive isotopes in a cavalier...

      I thought the stock exhaust was 2.25", but it looks like the flex pipe is 2" DIA X 8" total length (4" flex section).

      FWIW, you could also swap in a CCTA, as long as you kept your SAI bits and airbox. Probably not going to find any CCTAs if you're in Cali though.

      FYI, the overwhelming majority of RHD vehicles here are Delicas.

      Either way, JDM just for the sake of JDM, is dumb, IMO. A RHD Miata is nothing special to me.

      I hope he gets it sorted out, and it doesn't cost him an arm and a leg. If it does turn out to be an exhaust leak, you should tell him not to buy OEM replacements. They'll probably cost more than the...

      LOL. I completely misread your post. Low lambda voltage indicates a lean mixture, but when it's that low, it could also be a failed sensor. The latter makes sense, since on a cold start, it runs in...

      I don't quite understand your VCDS log (not clear which signal is which in the 1st one, and I have no idea what column is what in the 2nd). However, I'd guess that the driver's side catalytic...

      If you're happy with Revo, why not ask them if they will match CTS's price, or if they have a sale coming soon? You really can't go wrong here. Neither APR nor Revo is a bad choice.

      Sorry, mate. I think even if we didn't have a language barrier, I wouldn't be much help. It sounds like maybe you have a problem with the transmission control module.

      You'll have to find the ECU pin-out. I don't happen to have it, I'm afraid.

      Something's wrong with the timing. Either the chain skipped, the tensioner is fubared, or the camshaft and/ or crankshaft position sensor has failed.
