Nucor sponsored something? I toured one of their steel mills up here in CT since I design the bits the go in the steel mills and hadnt seem the stuff I make in real life yet (which means none of the stuff I've designed has sucked so badly I had to go out into the field and make it work). They seem like one of those corporations that libertarians wished all corporations were like.

I work in Ann Arbor if you ever need help with or have any questions with the build.

Awesome, thanks! Have you checked out the A2 Car Enthusiasts group on Facebook? We have meets every Tuesday night at the Gene Butman Ford dealer.

Also, I got the COP's wired in, the ID1000's installed this past week!

I need to get pictures and videos now. I just got it running on boost. It's around 7-8 psi of boost on wastegate, then I'm ordering an EBC solenoid to turn it up. It's definitely building boost around 2500 rpm, but I don't have a datalog yet to see where the boost threshold actually is.

First autocross with boost. It's just an unofficial school autocross, so I don't get screwed on classing or anything. It was totally reliable! I was happy to see that everything stayed in check, it didn't overheat, boost was nice and responsive.

I still need a datalog to prove the spool, but the boost threshold is right around 1800-1900 rpm, and it reaches a full 162 kpa by around 3100 rpm. This is with EBC.

I have around 3500 mile on boost now, and I have a boost leak.. I'm down to around 6 psi.

I also picked up an MS3/MS3x today, so I'll be building a harness for that soon.

I now have Singular Motorsports hood louvers!



I also have a virtual dyno graph when I was at like 7.5 psi of boost (this was after the boost leak started). This was also early in the tuning stages, and was running rich at higher rpm.



Finally, I have video!

Hey Adam why didn't you tell me about your build thread? I kept suspecting you had one on here but it took me until now to find it. I'll post up the picture I took of your hood vents if I can find it in my phone.

Whuuudup Ace.

That's awesome haha. I kind of want to build a tubular setup now! But that will come much later.

New virtual dyno.

Just rode/drove in this monster. It was a blast and definitely got me hooked on turbo Miata's. Now I just gotta decide what turbo to go with...

Did you start off with any kind of engine management.

I ran a DIYPNP for 2 years before I turbocharged. Then was turbocharged with DIYPNP for 2 years. Now got rid of the turbo and am running a MS3+MS3x. Next year will be an LS1 running MS3+MS3x.
