Here is the msl (is that the dyno plot?) and msq files

I am blocked from installing anything on my work laptop (my only laptop) so I cant install winpep7 to view the dyno plot. So if anyone wants to open this and save it as an image and reupload it I wouldnt complain any...

IBM thinkpad t43 great shape... lolz. But seriously, it has a serial port ready to screw in. Cut the price down and dedicate to the miatah.

I'll see if I can get away from my family in town visiting to translate your results. Only if you promise to get a cheap lappy that you can use. I'd prefer not to come to bail you out with adjustments at 6am on a Saturday in January when you car wont cold start .

Haha I know I know...

Hopefully ill never be stranded anywhere at 6am on a Jan morning since I don't have heat I prob wouldn't be driving this thing ha. But no rush to convert it. I know what it looks like already, its hanging up on my fridge haha. Just figured other people might want to see how the setup did.

Sidenote, no pressure sensor/wideband o2 was hooked up to the dyno so plot is only hp/tq vs rpm. I can upload datalog if anyone cares to see everything. I think what I uploaded was just the plot and the tune files?

I think you uploaded the tune (.msq) and the datalog (.msl), the plot would be a .DRF or .### according to winprep7

True, true, I forget your car is gutted and has no heater. BTW I have some rubber stoppers that would plug the old heater line holes.

Onyx is right, my dryno runs are .drf files. Look for something not .ms(x)

Oh yeah i have 9 different drf files. Looks like I cant upload those though. Ill just zip it all and upload that.

Matt, I will totally steal those plugs from you. Then all I have left is my AC line holes. and a new shift boot(s) and I should be pretty well sealed against gas chambering myself when it gets cold(er) out.

looks like its mad about the cold weather already and/or the IAC has gotten worse. Took a while to start and it revved up and then sagged like usual but it sagged and died a few times and I kept having to restart it. I might have to scoop that cheap laptop off craigslist and retune with the IAC capped completely. (I think I heard somewhere that was possible)

You can have them, I've got no use for them.

I told you that the cold will bring trouble lol. It doesn't even have to be COLD, just less than 80* F.


Best .drf:

That 259/236 isnt in there? that's the one I have printed out from the dyno shop hanging on my fridge haha.

Either way I guess it doesn't do anyone much good without afr/boost pressures plotted but thanks for posting it up.

Yeah I am hoping it starts in a couple weeks for the autox. I should be going home the saturday before so once it cools off I can try tuning the cranking settings with my dads laptop.

Damn dude, that looks like a hoot. If you want to compare it to the NA VVT hotness, swing by my place.

I will double check, but that was the highest power and last of the run files as far as I know. Wish you would've datalogged one for the afr and boost info.

We can do a rough fuel PW compensation bump for the upcoming cold so it is not as likely to leave you stranded. Plus I need a ride with the new tune and I need to give you the USB driver CD back.

Because *****



The graph has an error when engine speed is used, deleting the curves that the ***** encompass.

I don't get that dyno, feel like there should be a much sharper 'knee' in torque

Andrew, I might have to do that sometime. You planning on going to the Auto-x in Winston in a couple weekends? I think its with TSCC, ill probably be terrible with it so tail happy now. Ill have to try real hard to stay light on the gas.

Matt, let me know when you are free this week and we can meet up. My buddy cut that splitter DWG file I sent him into some coroplast I still need to fit up and see how good the file was and either trim it into an undertray and attach it to the lip I just ordered, or trace it onto some aluminum or wood for a splitter, but I prob dont need a splitter until I have a wing on there or I would just be even more tailhappy. But I remember you mentioning being interested in the splitter fit up so if you wanna be involved let me know.

Soviet, I was kinda thinking the same thing yesterday when I saw this. Looking around, alot of other dyno curves have a steep torque slope, then flattens out/tapers off as HP keeps rising. Mine almost rise parallel. Is there some reason for this?

because 2871.

Proper sized turbo for the 1.8 miata so that torque doesnt drop too much.

That graph is exactly how my 2871R miata would feel...

Possibly. You missed out this past weekend, THSCC had a surprise circuit-cross. This isn't me, but the course was fantastic.

Damn that course looked pretty fast. Only ones I have been to have been slower parking lot courses. My buddy just bought a stock miata (user name nchomegrown or something) so he and his dad are going and I think my roommate and I will be going so it should be a fun time.

Made it to my first Auto-x this weekend with the new car, had a blast. I got first place in SSM.....I was also the only one in SSM.... but I still think I had an ok time from what I saw throughout the day. 33rd in PAX and 14th in RAW. For having not done an auto-x in a couple years, I am totally fine with that haha.

Someone out there took pics all day though so I got a few good pictures of my car.

Edit: for some reason they arent uploading so I just added the links too. Mods can you fix?
