lol lol lol two foot wide compressor would shore be sweet.

My vote is if that turbo has minimal shaft play run that bitch until it explodes. That is my new game plan. It has an up front cost of $0 so that is a win


btw if you need a boost gauge i have one...

lol on the video but to add to my never ending project it seems I may be taking a turn for the better. I got a bonus at work and I am going to trade it in on a AEM FIC I don't really want to go full aem because I do not need it but I would love to have more adjustment than my safc will allow. As in I will be able to have two maps one for race fuel one for pump and stuff like that with the addition of ignition control. I am trying to determine if I can still run an msd box or if I want to but never the less I will have to do some more wiring on my harness before it goes back in. All in the effort to have less work down the road.

On another note I have been trying to determine what color to paint my engine bay when the motor comes back out. here are the suggestions so far please give me new suggestions or what you would do. My car is red and I have plans to paint it candy apple red metallic so remember that. Also should the engine bay match the roll bar or should I just leave the roll bar black.

Lime green
silver
red
black
white

Not green. It would look like christmas when you popped the hood. I would say white or silver but I'm leaning more towards the silver side of the spectrum.

Hey tell me what you guys think about this wing. I was thinking this with the 12" risers to keep the beast on the ground.

Or this one I like this one more but I think 59" wing will be much for a street car but the 57" should fit good.

Hell ricer no.

Unless it's a dedicated track car. Mine's a weekend warrior/track car and just because of those limited street drives I wouldn't put a wing on.

No wing. And. With candy red paint a gold engine bay is key

No I would mount it to the frame threw the trunk. The second one has a really wide mounting area that I could build supports in the trunk for and come threw the rear quarters on top. I plan on doing every bit of the 167 mph the car is capable of and with my experience before with the car lifting at 130 mph I do not want to die or feel like it is gonna fly away and this is the only solution I can see that is proven to work in conjunction with the front splitter.

I don't know what kind of aero benefits those will provide (mainly because they are most likely made to look functional but are not tested to be functional) and if I couldn't test them without buying them or find a test I wouldn't get one (unless I had money to burn which I don't). Personally am going for a flatter bottom with front and rear diffusers plus venting in the hood to get rid of lift.

Well I could do that as well run a rear diffuser. I can make that at work I just do not want to die or loose control at high speed. It is definitely not a track dedicated car but it will see 130mph a good bit and I want to take it to summit point a couple times just to try the track. From what I have heard and read the ssm miatas are hitting 115 on the long straight I will be well over that. I like the idea of no wing or just a stock wing for style and just running a diffuser and front lip. I will look into that.

Perhaps rather than a big *** wing some vg's and a lip spoiler of some sort? May add that extra stick you need but I think a large amount of lift will go away with the smooth bottom and f&r diffusers.
