Last time I went to a smaller meet and actually raced, I ran this guy when he was N/A.
It was still a 441 with a 242/248 RPM cam. Made ~550whp NA. I was in an LS2 based 445ci Fbody. About even. Hes TT now and has made 1200whp.
Nowadays with the DFW/Houston Rivalry the big thing is mile racing and high roll ****. Dallas Performance is putting out some 1200hp Gallardos, there are always the Supras, and TT Vipers and some LSx based builds and some TT 991s sprinkled in.
To be a strong competitor you need at least 1K hp.
Buddy ran 180 NA (standing mile) in an Fbody and the guys from LS1tech didnt even notice him.
Stuff like this at the big events TX2k and the Texas Mile
LMR TTG vs SW
At the smaller events on the street still see lots of LSx based strokers, H/C LS cars, and some KB termis. Last time I took the Z out I was in the slowest group of cars at the meet. I trap around 115.

Years ago alot of the fast guys were parts of dfwss and ricekillers.

that's cool. at least you're posting videos now. too bad its all stuff I've already seen on youtube (tx2kxx and ricekiller, 1320, grab-a-lane, some of the florida guys' chanels). very quick cars. but I'm not talking about events. obviously those always gather the top dogs with their $200k+ cars. I'm talking about local runs like the miata one we got in a tickle fight about...
I keep searching the net for miata turbo videos, it makes me sad that there are so few (at least that I have seen/know about) and all the hits you get when putting in "miata turbo, turbo miata, fast miata, boosted miata, big turbo miata, etc" are already stuff I've seen.
I'm almost tempted to make a different thread, similar to this, but dedicated ONLY to turbo miatas. Or swapped+turbo'd. Either works.
like I said, probably reposts, and done with a terrible camera, but whatever.
I'll try to dig up more later. I know I have them, don't remember where.
With current miata I plan to take a lot more videos. If only just for my memories.
