Sounds amazing. Are you using an open WG pipe? Do you have 3 hands, or just steering with your knees?

Looks like you need a smaller restrictor on that turbo.

why not get a real restrictor considering the invested in this project?

i agree with the over-oiling.

its crazy how much a difference valve train goodies can make. Back cut valves and stiffer valve springs rock. The car hauls so much *** now.

I just watched this with real speakers and sounds even better. Is that 19psi? It doesn't spool until 5k rpm in first? That's hardcore.

Please do so, stock motor + large turbo + high boost + your luck = bad things.

First of all Miata engines are non-interference engines. Second Rods come first in the Not-to-Bend list. If you're trying to spam up you post count to sell something please GTFO
