It's not the runners that are thin, but the plenum itself. I'll bring it by something this weekend so we can talk business face to face.

Here's the latest dyno, 17.5#, 92 octane pump gas and no meth. I will probably dumb it down quite a bit to make my first few track days in her a little easier.

Looks great, seems very usuable with the correct tires. Is this your "official" street tune?

Sorry if I missed an update elsewhere but, what happened to the FlipSide manifold? I hope you sent it back and had it fixed to your liking.

I'm going to take 3 degrees of timing out of all boosted cells and use it as a low boost tune for lapping days and stuff. For street/drag strip use I will run the Mickey Thompsons, about 23-28 pounds of boost and the meth.

As for the manifold, I'm running it with a few tweaks. It will continue to be developed through a different fabricator.

That dyno graph gives me a boner. Can't wait to see this thing on slicks. Think you'll hit 10's?

Probably not to be honest. I'm going to try and get it to run 11.5s consistently for this year at the drag strip. Most of this year is going to be spent doing more regular driving, some schools and a few lapping days. Might be an addition to the family this year, so I'm starting to plan for that.

Just to clarify something I said earlier. When I previously said I might be adding an addition to the family this year I was talking about either an Acura NSX or a Porsche 911.

Hehe, I was wondering. I almost called you to clarify :P.

Street car or race car?

Could almost go two different directions:

Road racer NSX and leave the Miata for the street/strip

Drag racer 911 with a dual purpose Miata for street and HPDEs

Models and plans?

It would purely be a street car that I used as a daily driver.

Ok...hence the luxo-touring choices.

Just had grand visions of what a JayL flat six turbo build would look like for a second.

I'm too cheap to go crazy on any platform other than a Miata. This will be my last slow car I mod to make fast. In the future, when I buy a toy it will be fast in its stock form (power wise). Then when I do outgrow it and want something faster, I will just sell it and buy something else instead of modding it to make more power.

Given all the comments on short runners killing low end power, your dyno sheet shows the contrary. Torque is hanging there all the way to 6500. What was your IGN on the top end for that dyno run? at peak torque? and when did it hit boost target?

20 degrees on the top end, 16 degrees between 4600-5400 rpm and it hit my boost target at 4050 rpm.

What's going on at 6800RPM?

Also, I guess this should be directed at all you Seattle people but Jay do you work in tech?

Yeah, the knock threshold was a little too low so it pulled timing. Didn't realize this was what was happening until the car was off the dyno. Although it's smoother, the built engine is much noisier than my stock engine.

Nope, I flip burgers and sell my organs to get cash.
