I'm really impressed with what it's doing considering it's "only" a comp wheel upsize (nothing else was changed on the turbo, right?)

Was this on cornjuice?

As far as I know nothing else was changed beyond standard rebuild parts. Same compressor and turbine housing, just bored out for a bigger compressor wheel.

And this was Oregon 92 pump gas. No plans for e85, its a pain to get around here.

Just a comp wheel upgrade, nothing else. I'd love to try e85 but really this is more power than I ever wanted and frankly more power than this Miata really needs. First track event should be in a couple weeks assuming my new suspension shows up.

Can't help but compare dyno graphs as I get more and more files from cars I've tuned.

Now that Laz is making ~310hp, I can compare it to Ed's 10ae/msm/vvt/absurdflow car that makes 320.



This graph basically illustrates the trade off of big turbo vs. small turbo. Ed's bigger turbo spools slower, which can be seen in the 3200-3700 range. But after that he's stays 10-25kpa lower and has a 30-45ft/lb advantage from 4000-5700, where I think the Honda manifold on Laz just barely starts to claw back some of the tiny turbo's disadvantage.

A few updates, shocks are on, resevoirs are mounted, corner weighted and aligned. -4 up front -2.8 out back.
Passenger seat back in, axis power hood has been mounted, just waiting to mount my gv canards and a splitter once Henry makes the bracket for it. Also has risers for the wing to put on as well.

Is the hood staying yellow. I think it fits the car like that haha.

Why such a difference in camber out back from the front?

Traction mainly, and the rear has the wing to keep it glued down at higher speeds but I want it to rotate at lower speeds. I'm going to do some testing and see, might go to 3 degrees in the back.

Car will get a full respray, but for now I kinda dig the ridiculous yellow hood

Finally put these on. Yes they are too pretty for the car. But I love the way they look.
