LOL@ video title. Looks like it builds boost QUICK, and lots of it. Needs more empty road 1-6 gear pulls.

That is ******* ridiculous. It spools so fast. Do you get pushed back into your seat?

I don't get pushed back because I have skinny *** bucket seats that make my back sweat. They are very supportive, I love them, but they definitely remove a lot of the OMG TAKEOFF sensation. I'm sure it's different to passengers....

Neck muscles tense up, yeah. And knees get a bit weak.

I'll go to a drag strip with a month.
I'm sure launching it is still a handful.

Boost, surprisingly, feels slower in real life. Like, slower compared to EFR 6258. Maybe it has an effect of slowing down time

It doesnt sound like your bpv leakes at part throttle. This gives me much sadness because mine leaks, and makes weird leaky bpv noises...

Take it apart and reassemble? I only have the full race BOV cover, otherwise it's stock. BOV line is right behind the throttle body (top of the manifold)

I have an EFR6258 sitting in my garage. I have a miata sitting outside of the garage.

Why have I not put the two together yet...

I don't think it will be as ridiculous on my car, because I'll be using the world's worst flowing log manifold...

It will be interesting to see how the EFR6258 spools and performs on my set-up compared to something like yours with a "proper" manifold
