I secretly want my next Miata to be an IRTB build. OK, I'm out of the closet about it. Feels good man.

Anyway, great looking project thus far. Count me among the jelly as well. Definitely in for vids and the glorious sounds sure to come from this engine.

Roller barrels can't be that bad - don't forget the K Series that Caterham used in the R400 and R500 used roller barrels.

Thought the R500 used a Duratec instead of the POS rover lumps?

Pre-Duratec, they all came with K Series engines in various states of tune.

The modern Duratec-engined Caterham CSR260 also uses roller barrels -

And note that unlike with the Rover engines, Caterham haven't made a big PR deal out of the use of roller barrels with the modern Duratecs. Which would suggest that the people who design banzai-power small NA road car engines for Caterham see roller barrel induction as better than butterfly plate style, for whatever reason.
So yes, to sum up, you should all use roller barrel induction :P

I should quantify my statement, it's based on reading FM's experience with them.

Made great power, but not without their flaws

A bunch of updates on ClubRoadster, he's in the midst of painting so it looks meh, but if you're in to lots of in-process pictures of some very impressive body work, they're there.

Dunno why he was banned here. I met him and he was cool. Must have been from something on CR.net or something.

^this.

Not sure what went down, however, his CR.net sig suggests it's not all rainbows and ponies.
