The KL flows.... a lot. I don't think it'll surge either, though.

Put it this way, though... he should make over 300whp on like... 7psi.

Yeah that's what I'm hoping, something like that. I have the ~7psi spring combo in my EWG and if it doesn't feel as fast or faster than the old setup I'll be sad.

I'm going to dump the EWG instead of plumbing it back into the downpipe. Life's too short to do extra fab work.

I wouldn't lose sleep over the potential of being sad... it's going to be ***** fast.

I have never touched a megasquirt or it's tuning software. One day I will may have an application for one. Maybe a microsquirt on my seadoo.

I'd try Braineack or reverant or diyautotune?

There's a PNP available either through DIY or Stratified Auto, if you want to go that route and just extend a few piece of the stock KL harness.

This is looking amazing, Tim. Psyched to see this thing running and moving under its own power.

I finally got around to finishing the intercooler and EWG dump pipe, so no reason to not install the turbo.









I just need to drain the break-in oil and pick up some hose fittings for the boost control solenoid. I'll probably start it tomorrow, but it's snowing at the moment so a test drive will have to wait.

I hope to have the new intake manifold done by summer.

wow Tim, those pipes look fantastic +1.
How to mark out such complicated bends?
(I would struggle to get more than 2 to line up.)

Thanks! I guess & check mostly. If you guess wrong, you cut off XX angle. Eventually you have enough cutoffs in the scrap bin that you can piece together the bends using the smaller cutoffs before you use the new/good pipe.

In 2.5 & 3" diameters I have a good assortment of angle pieces that I tack together in whatever combo I need to try a bend angle.

With that 1.75" EWG dump, I was lucky. It's a 90, to a 45, to two 22.5's. I used one complete vibrant tight radius U bend. I need another inch or so to make it below the undertray though

Seeing all this SS charge piping makes me want to do mine too, it just looks so good. Even your upper radiator hardline is stainless. My reroute is done with copper pipe :( Man I suck

This has got to be one of the coolest, most well-done builds I've ever seen. And I can only imagine what it's going to sound like. I will see this car in action, in person, someday. Hearing that KLiata that was for sale a while back was just awesome.

Props props.

Thanks guys. I can't wait to get a video of outside the car. Need to get someone to chase the car and record it.

First drive with the turbo installed:

****. This is beyond sick, i can only imagine the torque curve that thing makes.

Proper miata right here.

Any chance you did a 3rd/4th gear datalog so we can see the virtual dyno results? Looks like an easy 300whp and tons of torque.
