Okay, he seemed pretty decent. How did the course times compare? With ST prep, his car has fewer mods than either Miata overall. No turbo or engine swap, much narrower wheels and tire footprint, front weight bias to promote understeer...

Registering for this track day in october!!! Summit Point. This should be enough time to get my new setup in the car, ducting, and do a track tune.

No power steering. I drove a 220whp miata today and the clutch was retarded heavy. But I guess I'll get used to it, like my steering.

I used to DD with it in 495 traffic. It was fine until my factory clutch line exploded in stop and go traffic.

DP will be done this week! Look at this beast!







I also hooked up a fifth water injection nozzle. This one is on the IC outlet. Haven't had time to test yet but I am sure the gods of complexity are pleased.

Must resist keeping I simple...must resist keeping it simple.

The down pipe looks nice.

Your videos ...fail. Come on far take your car out on a lonely piece of road and open it up. We need a comparison for when you do a performance video of the new setup.... Oh wait that some happen either

I have one more nozzle to add Gotta figure out how to make a little mounting plate to blind rivet onto the nose of my air filter. Not sure what blind rivets to use. The air filter nose material is plastic and like 4mm thick. Recommendations?

Ahem, 8 butt welds and one fillet

Just wainting on the flex joint. Not many suppliers for 3.5" bellows.

Fae, you're getting fancy male/female grooved v-bands, too
