- 1997 1.8 motor (stock)
- AEM EMS ECU with 2 bar map sensor & GM boost control solenoid
- RX7 460CC Injectors
- Flyin Miata DIY Manifold & Downpipe
- Godspeed GT28 Turbo ($300 on ebay)
- 2.5" charge pipes with a Yonaka front mount intercooler
- OBX 2.25" Catback exhaust
That should be all the necessary stuff. I still have more timing to add, and I'm rich in some areas, but I'm really happy with the results:
214HP, 220 Ft/Lbs of torque
Considering I still have a 2.25" exhaust past my test pipe, and I'm running 11.5psi, I think the numbers are fantastic. Here's a picture of the dyno sheet, and my car on the dyno.
does you boost dip a few pounds around 3K? otherwise not bad at all.
Thanks Brain. In my AEM EMS I can choose how much correction to give on the wastegate, and I have it come on really strong, so I think that's why I'm seeing that dip. I basically just need to smooth it out and that should go away.

I'm basically at my power goal. Would like to be between 220-230 HP, and about the same torque. I'm guessing going up to a bigger exhaust and a bit more tuning will put me there.
Take it back to him and tell him not to lift until he hits the limiter.
Your hp doesnt seem to be dropping, it just looks like he was scared and let off.
It was really sunny and he couldn't really see the monitor, so yah, I think he just didn't believe me I had a limiter and let off.
BUT on that note, the car is boosting way better now. I had an old vacuum fitting tapped into the cold side of my charge pipes and discovered it had fallen out. Now that's I've plugged it the car is.... better
how many miles on the motor if you dont mind me asking? stock head?
I got the motor in an unknown state from an auto wrecker. I did the the timing belt and the one that was on it was definitely not original, so I'm guessing at least 100,000kms on it. I've probably put about 7,000kms on the motor boosted, but only about 1000kms on this current turbo setup. The motor is totally stock.
