For sure man - I will let you know!

Whoops! Nice catch, you are correct. Updated original post to cast BEGi manifold.

The dyno run posted above was at 20psi - 405rwhp.

Not really realistic at this point to sell the whole car - I've already started to pull off some parts for my '95, and some other folks already have dibs on parts.

Did you notice any improvements after installing the air tabs or were they installed the same time as other things?

This seemed a better palce to ask, rather than jack your Gearset thread, but do you have a ball park figure in mind for the rolling chasis? I would love to have this car, I spent many hours under the hood of this car for Tripper back in the day. I think it would make the perfect project for me to step back into the car world again.

Nick, how well does the AEM truboost work? Does it hold constant boost with temperature variations? Do you have to tune PID?

I do have a figure in mind for the rolling chassis. Some of it depends on the definition of "roller" - I can adjust the price accordingly depending on how much or little of the car you want. I'll PM you so we can talk more offline.

I've been really happy with the Truboost. I'd recommend it to anyone running a Hydra and looking for a good EBC solution (with the primary advantage over a manual boost controller being the ability to adjust boost and interpolate between "A" and "B" settings from inside the car). For setup, all you do is adjust the duty cycle of the solenoid until you get to your boost target.

They are marketed primarily to truck drivers for fuel economy, but I have some mounted on my hardtop as vortex generators:

Please bring this out to RA 1st wekeend of Dec, Sixshooter will be there running his car - we'll be partying it up Sat night most likely. Plus we need to talk about a SEMC? Will be a good weekend to talk to some of the other miata folk about starting a MC within Nasa.

December?!? I'm here right now! . Running today at Road Atlanta with MVP Track Time. I'll check into that event - sounds like fun. I'd run the green car though - this one needs a new turbo (part of the reason for the upcoming part out).

I recieved your PM, but I'm still a noob on MT so I cant PM yet. Do you have have an Email? I will say that what you sent in the PM is inline with what I had in mind, and the wife didn't give me the "look" when I talked it over with her

I tried to send you a PM, but I forgot my post count here isn't high enough - been lurking too long haha.

I'm really interested in what you'd sell the harnesses for. I'd prefer black (or blue) ones, but I'm curious to see what you want for them.

Also, how much for the hardtop and lip? And can those vortex thingies on the roof be removed fairly easily?

I think you said over on tampabaymiatas that you were keeping the traqmate. Wish I could afford some of the other stuff on that car man, its really built.

Shoot me an email - it's my username here at gmail. The passenger harness has already been sold, but the driver's is available.

I have someone interested in the roller (including the hardtop and lip) but I'll let you know if that falls through. The vortex generators are mounted with double sided tape, so they should come off fairly easily.
