Leafy is correct the problem is not the width it is the height. I will have to massage the rear quarters a little more and jack the back of the car up about an inch and a half witch is fine just need to get it done.

I cut the crap out of the rear fenders when I installed the flares but I could have taken more out of the front and rear edges of the fender well worste case I have to cut another 1/2" out of two 6" long sections even still the tires may jut be too big for the fender well.

Im just gonna drop this here. The video says 18psi but we are currently trolling my buddy and his vette car was actually at 16psi not a big deal but makes a deference.lol There is another video I will be uploading in a min that is us racing two more times and him beating me. I could not hear his horn at all and had no chance when I just have to watch his fender and mash it when I see it move.

This is an old vid before you turned the turbo around, right? And I just randomly thought of this the other day, but where does your O2 sensor go with an exhaust that short?

Yes this is when the turbo was the other way and old is a relative term it was three weeks ago lol. I'll post a pic of the o2 sensor later.

Vette is a C6 base auto with long tubes full exhaust Vera ram and tune it makes Aprox 450whp

The first race was from 40 witch worked best for me the next 2 were from 60 witch worked better for him.

Damn. That 'vette is quick. What year is it? I'm surprised how well he ran with you.

That little miata is stinkin' quick too though. I WOULD say it's more unassuming but it has a large engine sticking out of the hood, so it loses some of its sleeper factor... lol

you should get a 7mgte cam sensor, waaaaaaay smaller than using the NA 2j for the COP, and its fits like factory.

pulling on a 119mph car like that is really sweet man, your car is definitely fast.

I can't wait til you're done with this PROPER mounting/location to see what it will do

That's what I'm talking about.


I did some measuring on my car, and it looks like I may have to cut on the front side of the fender to fit a tire that tall. A 26" tall tire is getting mighty close. Have you come to the same conclusion?

Of one one day I will test it.

As farad the tires should be mounted on wheels

Ok I after doing some test fitting I have to cut as much extra metal out of the fenders as possible and after that they should fit. I have been meaning to do this anyhow and now that the fenders are mounted it makes it easier to see so I will be trying to do this this week. I will post some pics as soon as I start.
