62 and 67 are the outer diameters
49.6 and 53.9 are the actual compressor sizes (aka precision turbo size)

There are no other differences. physically, both turbos are identical. same holes. I don't think surge line will be an issue - if it is, I can just tweak the boost control duty table to open the wastegate more

More is better.

It could be useful. Wonder if your ecu can use it as a safety. Open the waste gate more if you start over spinning.

yes, I could run a 12V wire and ground it with megasquirt based on turbine wheel speed, effectively opening the wastegate 100%.

Also I'm getting the speed sensor for free

Could also run your boost control based on turbine speed for when you really want to run ALLOFIT (Efficiency Be Damned)

Yesterday a Nissan Xterra backed into my passenger fender. I'll jack the car up later today but I drove it a bunch of miles since (like 80) and it feels alright. So I'm guessing the suspension is a-ok.



lol @ Xterra rear bumper being higher than my tires

That sucks soviet. It is nice that you will just have to replace or get the fender fixed.

I am pretty sure that already happens. He is a vegan and can not eat bacon. I would cry myself to sleep over that every night.

Some ****.
Still waiting on SPAL 14" fan and AMSOil 2000 grease so I can pack hubs like hustler does.






Trackspeed Radiator
Trackspeed 11.75" Wilwood BBK
Trackspeed Brake ducts /w hose
Hawk DTC-60 track pads
Porterfield R4S street pads
M-Tuned Rear Sport bracket kit
Centri Rear Sport rotors
China front hubs
ARP wheel studs for front hubs
Corksport urethane exhaust hangers (bye bye worm clamps over stock hangers)

I think the rear sport caliper M-Tuned brackets are super sexy. Much, much better quality than my front Corrado kit brackets. Sexy beveled edges everywhere.

It ain't hubs he packs, and I doubt he uses lube.

If you know what I mean...

In all seriousness though, if it wasn't for hustlers "how i make race car reliable" adventure, I'd probably spend 3x the money experimenting with random crap

I've been meaning to ask you this many times:

what happened between when you bought the car and now?
Did your ***** finally drop and you became a bauce?
I even made a comment WAY back in this thread about how it went from poverty build to BALLER build in a matter of months......Just curious what led to this point. You're pretty much balling out of control these days and buying top of the line parts. Which is awesome btw

Checkbook freedom my brother!

Although, I must question your statement. All of the miatas driven by those who have set off my gaydar have been, umm, "unmolested", as it were. Yours reeks of hirsute russian testosterone.
