I'm excited to see the final numbers! And, of course, to get my car back.

I could be wrong, but isn't 43psi a little on the low side for oil pressure?

No, it averages 45-50 anything above idle. This is with Total Racing 5-40.

Final dyno numbers were 220/210 on wastegate, 315/300 at 18psi. Iíll get some dyno charts and data logs posted soon, car feels great!

Here’s a quick screen shot of the final high/low boost setting. I’m at 255 in the fuel table so I need to change required fuel so I have some adjustment. Hence the 2-3 lean spots.

Finally got the WinPEP 8 software so I could put together a comparative dyno of all major iterations of my build. Yellow is bone stock, green is with built VVT engine w/CNC head, blue is current wastegate pressure, red is current EBC tune. SAE correction this time around.

Made it through my first track day turbocharged and my first day at Oregon Raceway Park. Only issues were a v-band for the exhaust coming loose, and the downpipe rattling against the steering shaft on hard right handers. May need to adjust things, or may just need to get clamps for my exhaust hangers to tighten things up.

Sleeping accommodations worked pretty well. I might have over packed a bit, so had to pile things up to make room for the mattress.

My home away from home!

Got a little chilly over night, but my sleeping bag can handle it. Tomorrow going to visit some college friends, then another day at ORP Monday!

I think I gave you that baggie of hardware that should have the v-band locking nuts. But like I said they usually either strip the threads or become regular nuts after the first use.

AAR from ORP: Only had the loose v-band and the downpipe rattling against the steering shaft. Unfortunately, even with adjusting it as close as I can to the block it was still hitting on right-handers. Looks like I need to get standard-height motor mounts to get that little bit extra clearance.

Since I won't be doing any more track days this year I'm just going to go with MazdaComp mounts. If I decide that allows too much movement I'll probably add in an AWR mount for a hybrid setup. The BBFW drop mounts will be going up for sale eventually once I get them out.

You’ll probably have the downpipe out for the motor mount, you could always give it a good dent, it won’t hurt performance at all.

You'll rip those Mazdacomp mounts in half in no time with that much power.

That being said, if those are VVT Drop Mounts PM me before you list them for sale.

"Here, take this nicely built downpipe that you paid to have ceramic coated and hit it with a hammer!"

Truthfully though I might just do that. Should be significantly less of a PITA than replacing the motor mounts. On the other hand, having less rattles would be nice and Martin thinks that the drop mounts are a contributing factor in that drivetrain vibration you were trying to track down.

That's what I thought, but the local performance Miata shop thinks it would be okay. Haven't bought anything yet, still mulling on options. My mounts are for the 94-00 block.
