It brings it closer to the feel of a 5-speed but it feels tighter, there are just a few thousanths of slop at the top of the shifter. It requires some break-in, we could barely get it into gear when we first installed. Make sure some gear oil is sloshed on it before you shift because it's aluminum on steel.

Listed for 90-97, but you put it in a 6 speed? I'd love to put one in my 5 speed if it'll fit.

I need to get off my *** and register for comp.

I have three six speeds and three shifters, on trans and shifter requires a larger plastic piece than the other two. I don't really give a **** what it says, we have to bolt up a different trans so I could use that little aluminum dude. I'm going to need you to tone down the disrespect. I don't where you come from, but around here we do not tolerate this kind of disrespect. I'll be waiting on your PM'd apology. See you in hell.

I could not have done it without John's help and motivation. His youthfull exuberance (twink bottom) really kept me going.

I can feel some pretty nasty vibration above 6800rpm so I think I NEED that 949 pulley. More god-damned money I guess.

I got a better road tune on it at lunch and it's really starting to zip. I've tuned a lot of 9.5:1 NA engines and those were much easier compared to this one. I guess the high compression ratio really requires precision tuning because any variance from the target AFRs makes it rough, I could use a smaller VE step size. Running this car on MS1 is pretty much an exercise in futility too.

I'm glad you're happy about seeing the car live too, I can't wait to rip that motor on the track.

Interested to see how your laptimes compare to the turbo setup.

We all know he is going to be faster with the NA motor. SJMarcy has told us that a million times.

I wonder if that amazing datalogging kit is still for sale that we had to group buy going on a few months ago. SJPat should chime in about it.

Looks sick. You have any logs to run through the Virtual Dyno app?

When are you swapping out rear ends?

Link to virtual dyno app?

That's up to John since I'm on travel next week. We are both incredibly busy these days but it will be done prior to Hallett.

Here's the thread on it.

https://www.miataturbo.net/ecus-tuni...al-dyno-59374/

Basically you log a good 3rd or 4th gear pull, use ms excel to trim out everyting but the data for that pull, enter your cars details in Virtual Dyno, import the log file, and it graphs out the plot into a semi-accurate dyno reading.

If you reduce your required fuel, you'll end up with larger numbers in your VE table. This has the effect of giving you a smaller VE step size. Just make sure you don't exceed 255 in any cell.
