so around 2 in the morning, a buddy wanted me to make a lil acceleration video, and I had a go pro with me. didnt really wanna go too fast on the street, espacially without a radar haha, but heres a little clip. Wasnt really trying to do a crazy launch, or shift like crazy or anything, was just a relaxed fullthrottle drive.



car feels so freaking good right now haha.

Also took another pic of the engine bay:

My boost kicks in instantly. For example if I'm at 1.5k in 2nd, I floor it, by the time I'm @ 2k I'm in boost. If you want I can take a video, or you can look at my other video. I really doubt my car would accelerate so quick if I didnt make 2xxhp

I'm pretty sure this is because of the AVO manifold. There will be another dyno in the future, I'll make sure to do a proper print, and I'll post it up.

I'm pretty sure there is a dyno thread here where a guy made 242whp on 9.5ish PSI with a AVO manifold, and a 2554.

Except the dyno shows full boost closer to 3500

Not talking about full boost. Anyways I'll post up a a better graph when it gets redynoed.

Thanks.

Not a chance in hell. I'm not doubting that your car is fast or even very fun, but those numbers DO NOT happen with a badly designed cast manifold a 2554, actually those numbers don't happen at all with a 2554 strapped to a miata. 240whp is past the turbo's maximum power output, lol.

just gooled AVO miataturbo dyno, first link:

https://www.miataturbo.net/showthrea...&highlight=AVO

I can post more if you want.

look at this video 0-60 is 4.xx without a hard launch or hard shifting. I doubt that will happen with out 2xxhp.

According to Garretts website maximum output is 270, but what do they know.

To my knowledge, and all the threads that I have read so far, the AVO manifold, is one of the best flowing quick spool setups you can get, but then again you probaly know a lot more.

Sorry to offend you dude. Like I said, I'll post up another graph when I get the car redynoed, and we'll see what happens.

its in boost, anyways I'll get a new graph like I said. No point wasting time arguing about the same thing.

sure, but it's not always at full boost (below 3300).

Yeah, I saw that. I completely understand what your saying; but arguing about this without another dyno is pointless.

Rad car, looks quick. Looks 200whp range judging by the video. Nice. I would like to see a more accurate dyno chart as well. Get on a different dyno when you turn up the boost!

had some free time today, and didn't have anything else to do, so I decided to tuck the cold side harness. Hot side, and motor ones next.

Tucked up the drivers side as well, decided to check out a hard parking meet, so went to import alliance.

A friend took this pic of my car, looks kinda cool. Def needs a lip or a bumper or some **** haha

why is there gold tape on the end tanks? those see airflow too and still help cool.


you want the hot side to shed heat before the IC, and the cold side to retain cold to the TB...

Gold tape is a barrier to radiative heat transfer (i.e., the kind of heat a glowing turbo gives off). It is not much of a barrier to conductive heat transfer (the kind of heat transfer used by an intercooler or radiator). So, the gold tape looks goofy, but doesn't actually impede heat transfer much. The gold tape on the end tanks serves no function other than aesthetics (for good or bad).
