The jury is still out as to if I will be sticking with the coating or going back to polished.

Did you have new pistons coated, or can you have used ones plated too?

Cheap lower balljoints fucked me again, passengers side busted while going straight. Had to call a tow truck, all of my tools were 30+ miles away at my new garage...

$20 pieces of **** can't even make it half a year. I replaced both with cheap **** hoping to make it to spring and a good alignment with new OEM joints. I put them on after 9/22, broke one 3/24. ******* useless bullshit. **** masterpro.

After the passengers wheel fell off I replaced the broken joint with masterpro again so I could drive home that afternoon. I thought the alignment was off from the wheel falling off, but no it was the drivers side lower being a ******* bitch because OEM joints fixed it.

Two brand new ball joints entirely useless after 6 months. Ppft.

And to top it all off, I took the miata in for an alignment anyway. I ask for 1.3F, 1.0R and 1/16 total toe in on both ends.

First the mechanic comes back with a ******* 1/8" of toe OUT on the front, so the service manager sends him back. Few minutes later I leave, thinking it were right. Nah, I go look at the printout and I have over 1/4" of front toe in, 1/8" per SIDE.

Why in the ****! Guess I'm going back.

I need DIY alignment tools. Other people are ******* useless.

New ride height, NB AE billies are too long. This is only around 1" of total shock compression travel front and rear. Need tophats, delrin, sphericals, and those alignment tools...

I'm thinking about it, really the only way I can get the exact dimensions I want.

I need to pull the springs and cycle stuff, to see if my math is right. I've dabbled a bit in motion ratios and stuff for sim racing modding, but I'm using internet numbers so I'd like to doublecheck.

Sold some scrap, miata weighs 2200 without me in it. Half a tank of gas, maybe a bit under.

DIY alignment tools will cost you $60 or so to buy and make. RPW Caster-Camber gauge, some PVC pipe/fittings and some string. Hop to it!

My miata sucks and is slow, can someone show me some good 91 octane ignition maps, please. I'm not gonna blow my motor up, I just want to look and compare...

I moved and don't have e85 right in front of my house any more, it's a 60 mile round trip to get more at the moment. I really only manage 22mpg when I'm being nice, range is terrible. Until I figure something out I switched back to 91.

Here's what I was running, and what I loaded up at the gas station. Sorry they aren't binned the same, makes it hard to compare direct. I'd target 190kpa max, usually around 170, so I'm running half as much timing



Feels sooooooooooooooo much slower, makes me sad. Should just buy many many 5 gallon gas cans...

Here is mine



And the table file

Its basically a base map. Tuned on the dyno, but no increase in power so went back to base.

I also really like using Soviets map rescale tool.

Currently it's limited to maps of same size (e.g. from 12x12 to 12x12) but it's easy to change, if anyone wants. So map size can be changed, e.g. going from 12x12 maps to 16x16 maps when upgrading to MS3.


The tool - http://s95367906.onlinehome.us/photo...MapRescale.exe

Example

Source NA map, autotuned.


Desired Axes. I zero-ed out all the data for demonstration purposes. Only axes matter here


Running the tool


Resulting map

Well that's bad ***, thanks!

I guess I really just need to find my det can amplifier, what I've got there is just basemap with ~3 degrees max pulled in boost. I want to check my offset tonight to make sure it hasn't moved, then I'll start adding back to basemap while listening...

Do you run 93 or 91?

Went to the drag strip, running 14 pounds. I suck at launching my car, need more practice...

Took my time when I got set up alone and managed a pretty good pass, have many, many mid-high 14 runs from my shitty launches.



Working on NC miata lately, the one on the right went for a swim. I will know NC inside and out by the time I'm done. I'm not sure it'll be a useful skill, but whatever.



Also, ricer lip!

It should keep making boost. But not power. Once it gets out if efficiency range.
