Ok, this all pertains to my 88 N/A SE

Ok, I got a bunch of the stuff to remove my OMP and go for full-time pre-mix. I got the block off plate, and enough gasket material. One thing I don't have though is anything to plug up the oil injector holes with. Is it ok to run my motor for the time (I just run it for 30min once a week in my garage) without them plugged. And also what size/thread bolts do I need to get to plug them up?

I think its M10x1.25mm. I used some stock Mazda bolts that were left over from stripping parts off the engine and some washers to get the right length. I wouldn't let the holes open. You'd be creating a small vacuum leak on the lower intake manifold and it can't be good to have tiny holes open to the rotor housings either.

Well, I'm about half done. Had kind of a stressing day at work, so decided to get at least part of the work done when I got home. So after spending a good thirty minutes getting my fan shroud off, I easily locate my OMP. And after studying my Haynes manual for about twenty seconds, I unbolt the "Oil line banjo bolts" and pull all the oil lines out. After that it was simply a matter of finding the bolts that held the OMP on, and it pulled right off. Then I just bolted my block off plate on, and there was no probs. Started my car up, and let her get up to temp, and check for leaks, and found not a one. Only problem I've noticed is now there is a very slight hesitation if i get on the throttle real quick. It'll just bog down a little bit, but then picks right back up. I'm guessing this is because I didn't cap off the lines and now they are sucking in on monitored air. But tommorw I'm going to take my intake manifold off and try to locate my oil injectors and try to get them out and plugged up.
