Wastegate wired open with a coat hanger.
One benefit of Norfolk is all these damn tunnels make good videos.

...and you get to listen to it for so much longer.

Probably been too long, but I wonder how much faster it is with open wastegate than truly NA. Do you/can you build boost at all? I could get a few pounds out of my set up - mainly because the wastegate sucks.

Do you have regular gas maps so you can run with that pump and 15 psi?

When my turbine blew I drag raced Faeflora's stock 99 miata and it was dead even. I dunno if I build any boost now, the wastegate is pretty good. There is some induction noise but that's about it.

I don't have gas maps. I ran E85 through the stock fuel pump.

Yes Cyl #2 ate something in its lifetime. I don't know what it was, but I dropped the bolt into Cyl #3, so it was something else.

One theory is that turbine remnants got sucked back in, but I dunno. Turbine/compressor wheels are immaculate.

because I had to get home and home was 200 miles away

I got an RMA from deatschwerks. I'm entertaining the possibility of selling it and buying a Walbro 400 instead. Who wants a discounted DW300 with half the warranty left?

Ah ok, that's acceptable.

Does the DW300 find corm juice delicious? I need an E85 pump, but wasn't going to be looking until late winter...

Yes, 100% compatible. One of the reasons I bought it. Drop in replacement, no worm clamps needed.

**** yeah! I told Allstate to kiss my *** when they wanted to charge me $270 to tow my car back from the track. My friend with AAA signed for me and I was on my way. I now have AAA.

Really, you are the only one that voices it? I saw tons of DSM threads when they first popped up on the scene with dead injectors. **** that. Fuel helps my car not blow up.

You were never the only one. I disliked their ev6 injectors from a long time ago.

But have had no personal exp with their pumps.

Now I'm nervous cause I just installed a dw200 into my miata...

I was never riding the *** train with them. Their pump output has always seemed crappy, the dw300 looks more like its more at home fueling a big N/A v8 rather than a high boost 4 banger. Flow tanks with pressure worse than the other options. No experience with the injectors.

The DW300 is a baller pump simply because because its drop-in, very quiet and flows more than any other pump in the same category. Once you start looking at generic pumps that need to be custom-fit then yeah it's not the best anymore.

I never voiced it when they were a sponsor, but I was never thrilled with the cleaning service I got from them (compared to Fuel Injector Clinic), they missed a broken pintle cap somehow and I hate how much you'd have to pay to get before and after results, and you over pay for the little information you get back from the cleaning service in the first place. Plus the DW550 and DW1000 EV6 injectors people started installing were a joke.
