      It's weird in a good way for sure. The car feels the best it ever did.

      I was considering selling it and going with a newer generation Mazda MX5, but this is giving me pause and think what it would...

      I forgot to mention, aside from starting issues disappearing, power has increased across the entire RPM range.

      New Battery brings power back up?

      My 16v has had weird starting issues ever since I replaced the head gasket last spring. Which aside from the gasket itself included cleaning up 25 years of carbon deposits and returning the fuel just...

      My fans aren't even factoring into this yet. As soon as the thermostat opens and I start cruising the temp drops.

      I've also been keeping an eye on the oil temp (as vaguely accurate as the stock...

      The concern is running too cold is bad for the oil and thus bad for oiled components. They're meant to operate at a certain temp for a reason. If the oil temps weren't dropping too I might not care...
    7. Got rid of my AC, now the car runs too cool.

      Awhile ago I did a full removal of my AC compressor, removed the condenser, and put in a non-AC radiator, and converted to a MK3 serpentine belt setup.

      Even since then I noticed the temps would...

      Where and what time are Deldubbers meeting on Mondays? I've decided to stop being anti-social again.

      New sealed beams, they still worked but the reflectors had faded to near useless state. Started with just low beams, but the highs were so faded it made the front look awful.

      Not sure what kind you were driving on, but the spring rate has been good. My only complaints are about the ride height messing with the control arm geometry and now with wheels with a decent offset...

      Agreed, I've decided my H&R Race springs need to hit the bricks in the Spring. Replacing them with some Ground Controls, control arms jacked way too low and the wheels rub too much on real hard...

      Thanks your input Doug, the move to 205 was me seeing fewer and fewer 195 options as time for a on. The 205's seem to have more options.

      I'm still going to put the GC Coils on in the spring to...

      225/45/15 does exist and has a few options, they supposedly work on 7's but I think they are more at home on 8" wide wheels.

      They are also almost the same exact height as 195/50's

      Sorry, yes on the front,on the outer upper part of the wheel well. The inner edge of the rim sits at the same position at the stock wheels, lots of clearance there.

      These are the TR C1's available...
    15. Want to move to 205/50/15's, suspension advice

      205/50/15's have a much better variety of rubber, once my 195's wear out I'll be changing over.

      Right now with the 195's on my 15x7 et25 wheels and the Bilstein Sport/H&R Race setup I still get...

      BFG Super Sports should be a very good lateral move for you.

      I used an ABA undredrive pulley from eBay. If you really want an OE solution, ABF pulley should be able to be found, or adding a centering ring to the machined ABA pulley.

      Let me know where and what time.

      If you're still looking I have 2 or 3 passenger assemblies in my basement. I have a bad habit of breaking the driver's side ones.
