Auburn is just outside of the storm cell. We didn't get any rain from it. My girlfriend however is so close to being flooded out it isn't funny. She has the drainage creek in her backyard for the entire neighborhood. It was flowing over the banks but it would dissipate just enough that only about an inch accumulated in her basement garage.

Good to know.

Sorry for your girlfriend's home. Hope it doesn't get worse.

And sorry for crapping on your thread

Car is still up for sale. It's getting a Walbro 255 this coming week and a retune. Then I'm putting it back on the dyno.

Good luck on the sale. I remember when this car was up on ebay before you got it. I almost bid on it and remember when you joined here. Mucho improvement over the cobbled together turbo setup it had when you bought it.

I need another car like I need a hole in my head (which my wife would gladly supply if I bought this).

That was awesome. I drove it quite a while that way. I hope I never see something similar ever again.

Got the fuel pump in the mail today. Should end up with excellent results.

I hope to have it on the dyno this week. Depends on how work goes though. We're waiting on the new car to get back from the body shop so we can prep it for Limerock. That usually means i'll be working nights/weekends which leaves no miata time.

Last time it was on the dyno it made 240rwhp/238rwtq on a dynapack uncorrected with a horrible tune. The correction factor is about 10% for our dyno, especially with the temperature in the room at the time.

Car is doing great with the new fuel pump. I'm going to be busy/gone for the next month though so I won't have dyno data until after I get back. It's the middle of the race season so I don't have much time for the miata right now, if any at all.

Car is still for sale though. I daily drive it comfortably and wouldn't hesitate to recommend someone else do the same.

I'm including a torsen diff with the sale of the car.

Come and get it.

I'll be out of town for 3-5 weeks in case anyone is interested in viewing the car. I'll have internet and I'll respond to PMs and this thread as quickly as I can while traveling.
