I think mine is the only other turbo Miata around Cedar.

I know there is one that is slammed and dark blue

Just hoping now that I am not driving down the road one night and come across this police officer and they start to think they need to be on the lookout for the Miatas that are terrorizing the back roads

It was south west of st George above Santa Clara. Highly doubt you'll run into them.

Driving the car up to Cedar City tomorrow. Let me know if you want to stop by and see it.

Well I had to cover an employee this morning so I decided to take the Miata up to Cedar instead of the VW. Glad I brought my noise isolating ear buds. The car is night and day quiet compared to the original car, but that exhaust is no joke.

Car ran and drove great. Holding 85mph AFR read 14.5-15 and under boost +/-12. Might need to adjust the boost a little since it seems to hold steady at around 20 psi, when it should be around 25-27psi. Still plenty fast and fun but allofit is wanted.

Some guy had a miata on a flatbed behind a uhaul truck and flashed his lights as I passed him so I shifted down to 5th and punched it much to his appreciation through a multitude of honks.

I miss A.C....

Sounds like someone needs a big dog 5x11x22 magnaflow, what with the earplugs and the recent attention of the doughnut commandos.

It already has a massive magnaflow and a smaller resonator on it. It is just classic high way drone. Not a big deal. Seeing as it has no radio, the ear buds are dual purpose and comfy to boot. It is amazing how well the noise isolation works. I can barely hear the car running with them in.

I keep leaving my Go pro in Cedar! Plus I'm trying to tune out the richness of the VE table. VEAL tuning keeps making it go pig rich even though AFR's say otherwise. So I'm doing it all manually.

Also it is cutting at 20psi so trying to get it closer to 25 psi.

Still though. So. Much. Fun. Pulled from a stoplight just barely and had the back end kick out in 2nd and 3rd. I can't stop laughing.

Dood get some shaky cell footy like the rest of the free world and give us some 240p fapaction. You might even convert a few to TDI land after they see the rest of your channel and the next step down the spiral is VW stance.

I think you may be the first person I've seen complain about the big body magnaflow.

It should be pretty clear by now that Jeff has higher standards than the rest if us...

Yup and a small resonator in the midpipe. It gives it a great tone. Doesn't sound as good as my TDI though. Diesel 4 cylinder with a 3" turbo back has a great sound.

I'm not complaining too much about the noise, don't get me wrong, I love it. If it was my D.D. I'd hate it but it matches the car so it will remain.

I put the gopro in my bag so I wouldn't forget. Y'all want suction cup outside video or inside?

Not sure how much driving I'll do today though. Tis' my B-day so I'm going to empty my bank account on sushi.

Received.


Surprisingly good sushi here. Not amazing, but enough to satiate me. We ain't all backcountry rednecks in Southern Utah!

I don't care about anything besides speedo/tach/engine sound in a video.

Just my .02.
