To combat IATs until a get a new intercooler setup, I wrapped the downpipe and added gold tape hastily to the cold side intake pipe. Didn't really make much difference in intake temps but it helped the engine bay cool off a bit!
Definitely not a fan of the gold piping, I'll probably remove it eventually.

And the only reason it was as rusty as that was the light haze of paint they put on thin tin. Pretty sure they just ran it nearby the paint stage and what fumes hit it they called good enough.

Much thicker paint on the 86 and not a rust speck to be seen. I get to save $20 in 4 more years.

Threw a check engine light and a few codes. Bought a can of MAF sensor cleaner at CT for 12 bucks.

Got lucky! Worked like a charm.

You've only put 19,000 kilometers on it?
That's almost Garage Queen status!

2021 was definitely a slow year for driving. Only did ~3200 km, but nearly 1100 of those were on track. Thus far this year the car has gone about 6000 km with the cross continent road trip.

Track miles are like dog years.

I was just looking at this the other day. I dropped mileage driven as well. Pre-2020 I have been averaging about a little over 21,000 miles per year. In 2020 and 2021 19,054 and 18,921 respectively.

Zero track miles though.

I am way way down. If I had put as few miles a year on the Lava I would probably still have it. Mind you then Villain would not have posted and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

iirc, that wasn't indicated how the hakone purchase came together. it had everything to do with ichi filling us in (as much as he could) from his conversations with tetsuya tada on the 2nd gen changes, so you pursued the purchase before the 2nd gen's came out so you weren't 'stuck' having to get something you didn't like as much!

my average mileage went way up during covid. 300mi road trips every weekend to keep myself sane when the world was losing it added up.

my mileage actually went down since everything opened back up and those road trips started having too much traffic to be entertaining and relaxing anymore. now i probably won't break 3k miles for the year...

That was one of the factors for sure, probably the deciding one really, but it was only one of three reasons.

At that point in time I had no idea my driving was going to drop off as much as it did. Although I had no issues with the Lava it was 6 years old and over 100,000 miles. It was time to either start sinking money into it or start all over with a fresh car. Since my mileage payments had already paid it off starting fresh was the more prudent action. Had I known what the future held I would probably have held on to it.

Even then I was still on the fence and wavering on if I was going to replace it at all. Then I found that the last MT in the country could be had with zero extra costs (even shipping it across the country) it was a done deal. I wanted one when it was a Japan only special edition and before we even knew we were getting them here. https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=132926

Why would you have to start sinking money into it after only 100,000 miles?
Oil changes aren't that expensive.
