The rods will give on any turbo application car it's just a matter of when. And I have discussed with Ken that if it did occur where to go if the situation arises. Ken spent a solid full 24 hours tuning the car with over a dozen pulls to make sure everything was perfect. Now I am aware that I'm drastically cutting my engines life in half but I'm not also hitting it hard light to light. I will be as careful as anyone else new to boost will be lol.

First things first... midpipe and to take your suggestions and raising the car a bit with wider wheels and tires.

I took it out this morning it it took 5 times before it started up. It kept lighting up and dying. Finally got it. So I didn't do extremely hard driving but I was spiking 16lbs. I'm gonna bring it done a quarter turn on the boost controller hopefully bring it to 15 or 14lbs.

I'm also going to be relocating the air sensor from the ss pipe I got from fm connecting to the throttle body silicone elbow to the intercooler so the car doesn't lean out when I'm heatsoaked.

Thanks everyone for the cheers. I'm excited how well this panned out. Shout out to my tuner and co-installer StratoBlue1109

This. This is exactly what I want out of my FMII. Can't wait to see what it'll do with an EBC

Where is your source for the WGA hooked up to currently?

Either the one DIYAutoTune or the one from TrackSpeed Engineering. I've read that the DIY one can be a bit more temperature sensitive than the TSE unit, but its also cheaper. Bunch of other options out there as well, but those are the two I've seen most people have success with here on MT.

Excellent results! cold start is certainly part of the game, but it's really not that hard. Read up on it and take some time to dial it in next cold start.

Get some videos of a quick pull, i'd love to see it on the street.

Rough cold starts means you need to tune your cold start. See my thread about it, there are also tons of others. Its one of those things a shop will never really do for you, gotta do it yourself, they just do the easy/fun part of making power, none of the hard and time consuming stuff like cold starts and all that.

Also rods don't "give way on any turbo application, just a matter of when". Many other cars have rods strong enough to withstand 500-700hp just fine. The miata just happens not to be one of those cars.

If you want to preserve your rods and trans, run some crappy tires in the back that will spin all the time lol
But you already lowered the boost so it will probably be fine.

I believe I'm at 14 right now. And I'm prepared to build a motor if it goes. For now more smiles...
