Since you are too lazy to give any valuable input. 1000cc injectors are capable of approximately 500 HP, less on E85 (which we don't have in Maine) depending on duty cycle and fuel pressure, our goal is only 2-250HP I don't see the reason for 1000cc injectors. The turbo isn't even capable of that kind of HP. Somewhere around 600cc will leave room up top to bump up the boost later if he wants and still have plenty of fuel.

So once again if there are no plans to run high HP, why should he run larger injectors?

Great question. I thought the same thing, but still got ID1000s. Great resale value, and great for future upgrades.

Just great.

There has been about a million people ask the same question thats all...

people love the ids, never need to upgrade again, e85 compatible...

Well maybe down the line but we were able to try a new tune last night, despite that my new ignitor failed. Never got hot hoping just a bum unit as it only lasted three days. Our new tune we were able to see more boost and a bit morepower, also it blew its first ever lsd donut. Yay!

I have some Witch Hunter-cleaned green RX8 540cc injectors that I'm not using. Those would give you a moderate bump.

So i havent been on in a while but few updates. We got the evo going, Justin believes its nothing special... I love it. The smurfs been going well. I lost my gv lip the other day to a porcupine and put on the r lip. Also we arre currently installing an automatic sensor setup for my fans to come on, they were before but it was higher than i liked. Weve ordered fm sway bars to put on, as well as a kenwood 4 channel amp im going to install for top down cruising. Overall everythings been very nice, the only downside is my remote tuner went MIA. Our new plan is to go see Justins tuner tomorrow, he mainly does DSM's but he is willing to check out MS and im confident he will have it running even better with ease. Here is a few pics to enjoy

Monday night we put the FM sways on, went incredibly smooth, start to finish maybe 45 min. After driving for a few days i can clearly feel the difference, flatter and more responsive without the fear of sliding out well taking off under boost into a turn. Last night i slapped on the Trackdog and overall im happy with the appearence, i know its strictly asthetic but thats okay for what im doing with the car. I'm sure it seems useless all the upgrades for a car that may not see track use or mountain drives but its fun and isnt that whats most important. heres a few pics. Today my new cooling plate should be in from Garage Star, we were sick of looking at an nrg panel and i was fed up with all the stickers i put on it. Also we are doing some wrenching to the evo. axle and possibly wheel bearing to see if we can get that straightened out.

So not much has happened, We put a Kirkey pass. seat in. I havent been driving it much usually one to two days a week, as i picked up a newvery comfy daily and as we all know miatas are depressing to drive when its 90 out and tons of humidity. Went to Miata Day the other week and honeslty quite eh. Lots of cars but nothing over the top crazy and just a long day.

So I got my tsi's in and a new turnbuckle for my splitter. Turns out i somehow recieved old stock on the splitter with 8 inch buckles with my replacement being a 9. So rather than going back and forth with a company i ordered an 8 to replace it. If anyone is in need of a 9" i will mail it out for $12 dollars complete once the new one arrives. Still tossing around the idea of a bikini top, If anyone has one interested in selling or wants to chime in about likes and dislikes i'd love to hear. Also planning to do some fender bracing over the winter.
