This comes up on every video I post. My right leg is against the bottom of the wheel. I have to shuffle if the wheel is going to turn to bring my right hand close to it.

I have been having problems with the AFR at WOT changing significantly day to day, even with similar temperatures. Decided it might be a gunked up fuel filter, so I swapped that out. Dumped out the old one and it looked like mud. Woops... Firdt drive with the new one was rather rich up top!

I guess fuel filters should be changed more often than 27 years and 150k miles....

Also picked up some last few parts. Got a rerout spacer, BMW TPS (I was just gonna slap it on, but the throttle body has to come off for that), and a 1.8 throttle body to use in front of the supercharger.

Only things I still need are some intercooler piping, couplers and a belt.

Aince my school decided to not not run my class this semester due to low enrollment. So I will hopefully get the supercharger in by the end of the month.

I need to talk with the school to make sure they will be running the last two classes I need to graduate next semester...

Snipped the black and green wire Deezums said to snip and that fixed my reading issues (probably IAT throwing things off). Been retuning the fuel map and figured out the "incorperate AFR" feature. That is fairly slick as well. Compleeted a 1000mi round trip to Akron, OH and back, not a single hitch and 34mpg, I am pleased with that number.

Anyway, this Friday, I am taking the car to get a "baseline" dyno done. Got offered 3 pulls for $60 on a local Dynojet. Seems fair to me.

Put in your guesses as to what it will make. Closest without going over gets paypaled $1, and maybe shipped something random from the garage that needs to go away. We will see.

Current mods are, MS3x tuned by my incompitant self, AFM replaced by PVC pipe with an IAT, rest of the intake stock. GT500 injectors running sequential, stock header and cat. OBX Catback. Unknown miles 1.6 from a '93.

Can these 2 be disqualified for back-door-dealings?

108 seems pretty fast, I am thinking more like 102 & 99.
Oh wait, these are trap speeds right...

I will be sad we never got to actually drag race my Miata N/A vs. my friends 2004 Sentra 1.8 5 speed. Bench racing they are super close, and street light to the speed limit, they are almost dead even every time...

You should pick your friends better. These ones seem shady.

I get to keep my dollar!

Oh wait... That's a bad thing actually....

Makes an even 100 at the rear wheels. I always figured 95-98, so my butt dyno is apparently well calibrated.

Little bit of lite pinging on the last run when it was getting hot. Pulled 3* of timing just to be safe. Should probably run more than 87 in it....
