Results from tuning the wagon if anyone is interested. Gains everywhere!

Great thread! I'm looking to head down the same path as you with my '94. I may have missed it, but what size exhaust are you running?

Custom 3" downpipe to a 2.5" Jackson Racing catback.

Spark cut as opposed to fuel cut at the limiter.

A very rough edit of some of the footage is available here:

Good news! My roommate is selling his Miata, and was gracious enough to swap diffs with me. Torsen inbound!

Due to both cars being New England cars, there was no way in hell that either diff was coming off the PPF. So we just swapped PPF's as well. His car had 2 piece axles, so those had to swap as well. We couldn't get mine out of the diff under the car, so we pulled it all in one unit. We were able to pop the axles out once it was out of the car.

I'm just waiting on some new axle seals for the Torsen, and I should have it in my car early next week 8-) His car is all wrapped up.

Survived another autocross yesterday, consisting of me beating the ever living **** out of it.

I did run into some cooling issues (knew it was coming). Resulted in me running without the hood for the rest of the day, and letting it cool in between laps.

I have a Koyo 37mm radiator on order, along with 2 12" Mishimoto fans. I am going to focus on ducting the mouth of the bumper to the IC/Radiator, and getting my undertray back on.

It looks like there are many arguments as to whether a fan shroud is needed or not. Koyo does not make a shroud (that I could find), so I am going to be running the slim fans without a shroud, and wiring them in parallel. I'm interested to see the results. I believe that the ducting is more important. If curly or Brain see this, I'm sure they will have an input

Edit: Photos! I had the 4th best time of the day, chopping a DB9! I'm #11
