It's been running as is about 5 years now. I don't abuse or over rev. I only rev it that high when I'm at the track. I rev my BP up to 8k as well. So far it has suited me well.

Technical help I'll never need. Explaining in a way for you to understand I'll be working on that.

Your spelling and grammar are spelled wrong. Its just strange how bad grammar gets people rattled up versus bad spelling. But I am working on that grammar.

The PO made the holes. Not sure if I should keep it or replace the rear bumper.

Fleshlight you mean flashlight.

With his command of the English language he's shown, he could also be a Hamburger Patty Engineer.

To make a long story short, in 2010 the previous owner decided to sell it. I thought the price was right and now I have my hands on it. I never thought I would own that crazy Miata.

I have my own TRP Mazda MX-3, so I'm not new to power and speed. For years my MX-3 and this Miata had a feud. It was to see which Mazda was faster. That doesn't matter now since I own both of them. The PO posted youtube videos of himself racing a STI and beating it.

The year on the pictures is wrong. It is suppose to be 2010, just in case a good eye catches the flaw.

Here are the specs on my Miata:

94 Miata
1.6L stock internal B6 swap
Electromotive TEC III Standalone,
8,000RPM rev Limit
Custom Turbo Manifold
720cc Injectors
Custom Fuel Rail
Universal FPR
MSD 8.5MM Wires
NGK V-Power #8
57 Trim
3" DownPipe
Tial WG
Greddy BOV
350HP PT FMIC
2" Intercooler Piping
Extreme ACT Clutch
Aluminum Flywheel
MS Diff,
Autometer gauges
Innovate XD-16 Wideband
BF Drag Radials
Original BP drive train
HKS Boost Controller low boost 15psi, high boost 22psi Yes, I know I'm crazy. My motto is go big or go home. It has served me well.

I edited my posts for everyone to understand. I told you'll that I would work on that grammar. I will do my best to keep it up so that no problems arise in the future.

I hope everyone appreciates the effort.

I do. Most people don't take the time or make any effort to express themselves more concisely. It does matter that you are trying. It does matter that you have edited your posts for better readability and comprehension. Thank you for being one of the few that does make the extra effort.

Hey, good work with that edit! If you continue to make an effort, you'll find yourself typing correctly all the time, which will make you more respected as a person, and you might be able to take pride in your good work.

Good job.

I work in a suspension shop. After work I put in wrench time on my own car(s). Funny you say that, I used to do landscaping which is harder work than doing suspension jobs on big rig trailers. Texas heat will make you lazy enough to not cut your own grass.

Videos of runs will come soon enough.

Here's a quick video of the car hitting the primary rev limiter. For those that will ask, the oil pressure gauge is not working. I still need to source a good sending unit.




The Tec III shows 7940 RPMS.
