Remember that at sea level, 100 kpa is the base pressure of the atmosphere.

I'm at like...95 kpa where I live at normal pressure, so it puts 165kpa right at 10ish psi.

I see this in the Dy'no pages: https://www.miataturbo.net/dynos-tim...-10-psi-23838/

Does this mean that the 4828 compares favorably to a 2860 on a 1.8 S4?

Supposedly mustang dynos read differently than a dynojet.

240rwhp dynojet at 10 psi on a 1.6 with a quickie tune is great. Congrats! Good to see an actual dyno of a precision turbo on our engines.

I think he's done a 1.8 swap. I didn't read through the entire thread, but I thought I saw mentions of 1.8 swap while skimming.

Yep, (edit) 94 (/edit) 1.8 swap. All the mods are listed in the thread. I /really/ need to convert over to EBC, it would help everything down low a crap-ton due to my headaches with the stock wastegate.

not bad at all, now tune it to run 13psi between 3-5K, and keep the same boost level at whatever it's doing above that.

yeah, no 1.6L is going to do that...

Everything's working perfect car-wise so far, so nothing to really report.

I'm going to throw in an OBX LSD in the next couple weeks? I've got a (hopefully) dem768 intercooler incoming + already have FM piping waiting for it, and I've got a new fleaBay radiator waiting to go in. TSE studs + inconel bolts are waiting to go in the turbo when I do the LSD swap, and I've got a timing belt kit waiting to go on.

That's where I am more or less. No hiccups, no weird crap, everything's running damn near perfect with it being a DD.

Random update:

eBay rad, dem768 intercooler, FM piping are now in.

Overheated the crap out of the engine due to no ducting. If it turns out to not be okay, I'm going to be getting a VVT engine and doing a franken-94 block VVT everything else monstrosity that's built.

That's both awesome and stupefying at the same time considering FL precedent, Brainy.

I hold a grudge and he stopped posting drivel in the TM thread so I couldn't rub the verdict in his face otherwise.

Dude, if you hold a grudge against everyone who comes into politics and argues to argue, you must have a looooong list of grudges.

(Including yourself. Lulz.)

But seriously, although I'm not really keeping up with whatever the **** is going on (Beyond being completely mindfucked about the DOJ/Civil charge crap, wtf?), I did post pretty clearly the prosecution had no case for murder. Not surprised broski. The manslaughter did surprise me a bit, but the prosecution in that case needs to be disbarred for both incompetence and outright malicious conduct. The **** they pulled with TM's cell is just...disgusting.

Anyways, enough politics, back to build thread.

Does anyone on here by chance know anything about the 949 Pistons? I'm gonna need new pistons by the end of August it appears, and I'm currently leaning towards FMs 'cause the Supertech cause interference with VVT.

Update:

949 pistons are no go for this year. Looks like it's FM or bust here.

Looked at Supertech, interference on a VVT engine is no go.

What are your operating temperatures? You mention overheating.

I am staying between 195-205 in coolant with the fans running constantly and no A/C (dead relay). IATs for me are hovering around 100 degrees. Mind you, it is a heat wave and in the mid to high 80s in a dark colored car.

Interested to hear what you mean by heat.

I have heard the "Supertech cause interference with VVT" rumor several times. I also think I have seen JasonCSBB post some math about it. I do not think I have ever seen a yes it is, and it will be a problem. I have ran that combo in a motor for 3 years and never had an issue in that department. I certainly would run the same combo in any other motor I am building for boost on pump gas.

Why do you have the fans constantly running? The fans should theoretically be on only at idle or sitting in stop and go traffic.
