Logs and tune will come later, I'm at work and mulling over my dyno visit yesterday...
First off, here's my current mod list:
SM 1.8 block (presumed balanced)
99 intake manifold
Shaving Seconds custom-built header with matched primaries
Shaving Seconds custom-built 2.5" exhaust to twinloop eBay muffler
AriBuilt intake and cold air box (filter behind driver's headlight)
Toyota COP conversion
the car IS tuned. I started off on 99mx5's old NA (he's EFR'd now) fuel and ignition maps that he'd already spent some time tweaking, as his old NA setup is similar to mine. We probably have an additional (combined) 3 hours or so fine-tuning my VE table, both cruising around town and making adjustments while at the track. The plot you see below is of my CURRENT tune, which isn't "finalized" but up until yesterday we both thought was pretty solid. I know my VE could use some small tweaks and I'm pretty sure he flashed it before we loaded the car back on the trailer after seeing the plot freak out from 6k on. I'd venture to guess (read:hope) that the secret to my low hp is in the spark tables but we won't know until they get posted later tonight.
I made 110/102, which isn't really not really what I was expecting based off of the "Super Miata 140whp mod path"...
99-05 cylinder head or complete engine. 100% stock (Mine has a "better" intake cam)
Generic exhaust header. Racing Beat is recommended (check)
Generic high flow exhaust and cat delete. Racing Beat, Borla XR-1 and Flowmaster are good options (check)
DIY or aftermarket intake pipe and cone filter (check)
Programmable engine management computer (ECU) and a good tune (check)
91 octane pump gas (check)
Here's the Super Miata Dynojet sheet you've all seen:
Obviously there's a lot of variables in dyinoing vehicles and I get that... It's probably worth mentioning that It was 95-100* ambient, they only had 1 fan airflow and we left the lid on the air box for both pulls but even still, I don't think I'm crazy when I say that I should be putting down just as much as your basic Super Miata though...
9mx5 logged both pulls, my AFRs were on point but I do think there's more exploring to me done with my current setup but ****, could there be ~20whp hidden in there?
Well if you didn't do any tuning, it mean you're on the super conservative base spark map, and that's where you'll make power. If your timing was set right, I'd expect 10-15hp from proper spark timing and a little extra fuel.
And no, I realize Emilio is the one with 137hp, not you.
