I have run out of fuel, need bigger injectors but just barely.

Using EBC to hold more boost seems to work, over 200ft/lbs to 5800 now. Somehow I was at 103% duty cycle on this one, still don't understand that.



I think if I turn the fuel pressure up I can make these injectors work still, for stock rods at least.

With cheap tires and cold weather I am able to knock first, second and third loose rather easy. Can't believe I haven't got a ticket yet lol

No, these are 630 gt500's and e85.

Kinda makes sense, most calculators show these things petering out around 250 wheel on e85. I still think I can get a little richer, but not very much more.

Gt500 and ethanol.

Over 100% is "fine". From what I remember injectors are guaranteed be consistent up to like 85 or 90% duty cycle. Which the ECU treats as 100%. So you can still run over 100% but I believe it's not consistent.

I'm not scared of horsepower, just torques.

Is that being overly stupid? I have decent miata fund set aside at the moment, but I kinda don't mind my 1.6 at all...

Eh Idk. For me yes. But I have an uncanny ability to destroy things.

You have less grip than me, and probably drive like less of an ***, those are good things.

Only thing I don't trust that much is VD. I would find a performance shop around you and keep an eye on their facebook for a dyno day. You can typically get like 3 pulls for $30 or something. Then compare that to the VD to be sure.

When I made 200ft/lbs I only made 225hp. I don't plan on going any higher than that with e85 and 3", just searching for spool.

greddygalant bent rods at 225ft/lbs. But he also drives like a maniac. And was on Hoosiers.

Yeah, I have to let into power easy. I can't use that spool, not on these tires or this weather.

I've found that miata specific shop I was talking about earlier, I don't know exactly what kind of dyno he's got but he says he thinks he can get 8 pulls inside an hour for $120. As long as my megasquirt responds he says he loves em, so I'm good there. I just want 200ft/lb to redline, because it feels sooo good

I guess he doesn't like opening the shop in winter though, so I'm waiting till spring. Won't have traction to destroy thing till then, hopefully

Interested in results. I plan on cranking fuel pressure too with the new fuel system.

I still need a six speed if I get rods, need one anyway really. Will suck bad with 4.10 gear I have now, really want 3.63s...

I think I'm gonna try and be happy with 200 ft/lbs, see if it keeps my 5 speed alive for long times. If I break this stock block I'll swap a rods only 1.8, but if I want faster I think I'll just go for t56/nv3500 and junkyard iron blocks.

I think I might try and run these billies I bought too, they are still pretty stiff it seems. They seem consistent...

Ricelands so terrible a tiny pothole mid apex is liable to toss me into mailboxes on the other side of the road. If these billies are blown I'll just buy $400 worth of new ones instead of messing with fixing these.

Im in the same boat, need 6 speed... and more injector. Currently, my rods are useless. I also have 4.1 rear, is it really that bad?

5 mph slower in first, ten in second. I hear you have to shift a lot, pretty frantic and worse with power. Maybe not use first at all...

But I might not know what I'm talking about. I do know 3.63 is about the same as 4.10 and 5 speed, with extra overdrive gear. Would put my spool right about 75mph on the highway/3300rpm, I think it would work excellent. Wish they were cheaper.

What's it take to run 70 pounds of base pressure. People ran stupid pressure on fmu's on stock lines, right, or will I burn and die? I like cheap and I just replaced all the fuel lines...

Should make nearly 800cc, guess EV14 loves pressure. Would be more than my rods can handle at 80%dc.

Spoonfeed plz?

Stock lines are fine. Just get an FPR and stick it on there. Get a big fuel pump, it will be happier at the higher pressures. Get a $40 ethanol sensor while your at it.

I have a warb 190, should be enough right?

I'm going to get one with a gauge, then I'll know if I need a new pump.

Going to do ebay FPR. Half the car is ebay, why stop now.

I'll toss it in a medium flate rate envelope. So like 5.70 or something. 6 bux maybe? Send me something around that and I'll ship it out. Maybe even tomorrow if I remember.
