As for the horn i find myself reving at dumb asses who dont go at a green light and i still miss the light so i need something louder.
    Get one of those portable air horns used for boating. That should get their attention.

    several of them will fit on the shelf behind the seat or on top of the folded top. They are small hand held

    Your rubber grommet in the valve cover for the PCB valve is probably petrified. It will make a better seal if you replace it with anew one. It's cheap.

    The filter i bought fit perfectly. I removed the grommet and forced it. Its air tight. It idles fine after a few minutes but its till kind making me mad. Maybe if i upgrade my filter to k&n it will even out the airflow

    I should have said breather because I don't mean to just stick a breather on on cam cover. I meant what Thumper indicated which is an oil separator which you could then vent to atmosphere or run back to your intake.

    Here's my DIY from it. I was experimenting and went a little overboard but you could make one dirt cheap.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    Its a great write up, i have seen it and im planning on it just in two to 3 weeks. Ive seen it done this way quite a few times. If im not mistaken doesnt minuteman have a somewhat similar setup on his valve cover? Im definitely planning on an oil catch can its just im pretty broke at the moment from the six or seven random parts ive bought since Thursday.
