Yes, much much quicker then a spec miata. Although there is only about 2-3.

spec miata: 2:04
me: 1:49.8

Our track has 3 really long straights though.
Granted those "spec miatas" are slow as **** because I'm lapping faster with a chicaned front straight in my n/a fe3 and my shitty driving :P

But to Julians credit is one of the fastest drivers around here.

Cast on Cast, cools and heats at the same rate and also doesn't leave any gap in between the turbo and manifold for vibration or expansion differentials.
Just FYI no one on here uses gaskets between manifold and turbo and then turbo to downpipe.
