Nah, meant the other small gaps you get to see and play with from time to time... but hey this is MT.net - so lets get back to gay talk.

Don't worry Zaphod, you got a proper smirk from me.

Took it to the alignment shop today but they had another car on the rack that was taking longer than they originally planned so I'll head back in an hour or so.

CRAZY fun just driving around town. Definitely stands out though. I think every single person I passed by did a double take.

Still hitting overboost protection(as per TS blinking light) at around 5500, so as long as I keep it under that I'm ok. Running pretty rich right now too, but I can tune that out later. Just need this alignment and safety inspection so I can "legally" drive on the road.

Up to 5.5k though it is incredibly quick! I'm guessing there is an issue with my IWG spring releasing too fast. I bought the same one to replace the old one, but it may just be how I have it bolted to the turbo. I'd like to fiddle with it, but with out oven mitts on I'm too scared to put my hands anywhere near that furnace.

Also even with all the sound deadening, that exhaust is re-damn-diculously loud. I had forgotten just how all encompassing it was.

Right? I guess I wanted it to be noticeable.

Yeah I had removed the covers a while back and didn't notice them being off.

Luckily I passed my safety inspection even though I don't have a horn...I think they saw my face of dejection after finding out I needed one and took pity on me.

The alignment guy I swore almost cried at how happy he was doing the alignment. Said it was the easiest one he has ever done due to all the antisieze and fresh bolts. I aligned with 949 specs.

I bet he fapped to the underside of your car when you weren't looking.

It was pretty funny watching all the mechanics reaction to walking underneath the car. All of them were blown away at how a 20+ year old car could not have a spec of rust or dirt on the underside of it.

They started by laughing and saying why would you put that much time and money into a Miata, and then I casually opened the hood and they ate their words pretty quickly after that.

good think you didn't tell them it weighs half the weight of their bloated rides, that usually makes them choke on crow.

I set the upper limit to 300 kpa just to test that and I still got an early boost cut.

I tried feathering the throttle past 5500 and it revved up past just fine, it just seems when 1/2 to full throttle is applied it goes into overboost protection.

Does the boost duty % gauge change based off the EBC ouput? When I was looking at the gauge it seemed to only show 100% duty, instead of showing input from the EBC as I thought it would.

Is that quite possibly the issue at hand? Going to take a log later today so I'll have more empirical evidence to show ya'll.

Says the guy with an equally clean white Miata.

Once I'm able to, I'll put the old set of wheels on the rear and see if I can help contribute to global warming.

Definitely sounds like your wastegate isn't working correctly.

Ditto on post at least a log so we can see what your boost is doing.

Your pictures remind me of how much I miss living in ID. But I do like all the tracks that are available to me in TX.
