It's not a leak. I've never heard more turbo noise inside any car, ever, than when i had the FM intake on our MSM. It was BRUTALLY loud.

The setup was boost leak tested to 30psi, no leaks. It's just an incredibly loud intake. Between that and the eardrum-exploding GFB bov they used to ship, i always felt like the car made sounds more in-line with what you'd expect from a 1000whp Supra, not with a 250whp Miata.

Yeah, I love the spool up zzzzzttt sound my little, high mounted TD04 makes, and with the Forge VTA, it becomes zzzzzzttt - ppssssshhh. Adds to the entire experience, like proper music in the movie theatre.

That's a weird looking miata. Did you buy a new set of heels? It doesn't really match your usual color scheme.

Sunburst Yellow is a really rare color, must have cost a pretty penny.

I'm impressed that the Prius didn't morph into a Lexus.
