Not tuned. Working on some street tuning and working out the bugs.. Running on e85 having trouble with hot starts.

Pulls sooooooooo hard under boost... 1,2,3,4 blows the tires off.

Enjoy:

Oh boy. That looks crazy, cant' wait for vids.

As for hot re-starts w/ the adap: I was having issues with that too. ended up having it dump a TON of fuel in and advancing the timing on startup, which more or less "cured" the problem.

You will probably actually figure it out and not use the roundabout way though.

I was gonna go to the block party and make some smoke but it never happened.

I'm looking over your fuel setup and I like how you just did the lines (using one side of fuel rail as return). I think I'm going to do the same.

Any reason why you didn't use PTFE AN hose/magic PTFE fittings? I was reading about it today and E85 compatibility....

You should run a datalog of a pull through this and see what it says: Virtual Dyno

In my experience 300whp on a decent tire will hold 2nd gear, and even the shittiest of tires would hook up pretty well in 3rd... If you're doing 4th gear burnouts on anything other than a doughnut you're clearly doing something right.

Just finished reading the whole thread.

I'm going to buy a miata turbo, and I'm sure yours won't be for sale.

But I'm going to put some money in a Miata bank account, and the day yours comes up for sale, I'm going to buy it.
