I believe now I swear my eyes are playing tricks. It looks like 55-56 mm in length a notch below 7 inches

Awesome! I'm using a Turbosmart Kompact BOV and I didn't want a bunch of adapters in there mucking things up. Sounds like I can order a 12" stick of 2.5" and roll my own. Thank you very much!

When are you going to start your install?

I was wondering if anyone ran a v6 Mazda millenia oil filter on there miatas? It's a direct fit and the filter is bigger.

Yep, others have been doing this for a LOOOOOONG time. For Mobil 1 the Miata PN is M1-108 and the the Millenia is M1-110. I've been using whatever the WIX interchange is for the M1-110 since I bought my car.

They mention a V6 Millenia.

All Millenias were V6s. 2.5 or 2.3? Or are both the same?

Also seeing mention of using an 88-92 MX6 filter. 88-92 MX6s can use LT-5 Corvette filters. They're enormous.

Would be fun on a Miata if they fit, dimensions wise.

I have been running it as well but was wondering it the glowshift sandwich oil adapter will still fit with the v6 filter.

Long day of tuning and over a dozen pulls. But we are set. I need to get a midpipe, electronic boost controller, and relocate the itp sensor so the car won't run lean.

We adjusted the 18lbs. Of boost already so don't worry lol. It was silly fast when it was driving to the dyno. All good now.

If I'm reading that correctly, 257hp/259tq @ 14psi on a GT2560R w/2.5" exhaust? Most excellent!

Got a better shot of that boost & afr table? It looks like there is still a bit of taper, I'm assuming you are using some sort of MBC currently?

I'm using a quickly bought vibrant boost controller last minute. Stock midpipe. And I'll take a better picture. We got it up to 267 with e85.

And good job btw. That's healthy power. Get the ebc dialed in and you should see a bunch of lowend torque increase.
Start saving up for a build for when those rods decide they've had enough of 250+tq

Seriously strong numbers. Like Vlad said, the rods will likely not be happy for long at 250 wtq (and neither will your 5-speed... You're still on the 5-speed right?).

Now your car has the go to back up the show. Nice work.
