That is a pic of the first dyno. The shop I went to didnt have a printer hooked up.......thats a street tune. Obviously can use some fine adjustments. And that is on 91 pump gas.

Since you asked, couple things:
I'm assuming not smogged
1200cc injectors don't have a name specified
I'm assuming 5sp? which means either that dyno is a lie or its gonna blow any day now
that turbo looks about tapped out, you're not picking up even close to 75whp on e85
overall condition of the rest of the car is pretty beat down
hardtop not included

7k is just not gonna work.
if you addressed the issues, or adjusted the price accordingly I'd say you'll sell it.

again I say these things because you asked, not to thread crap

No. Not smogged. 1200cc fiveomotorsport "black-ops" injectors. Sorry, what is 5sp?

I'm not saying the dyno is lying. I'm saying either the dyno is inflated, or your 5 speed is on the verge of destruction and spirited driving will put it out of its misery any day now.

I know because we've blown up more 5 speeds than I care to think about after exceeding 250whp

Ah, got it. Thank you for the warning. The Trans is still good (at this point). The car has chased down an r8, a new m3, a 911, ....not saying they drivers are race car drivers, but on the freeway its not to difficult to go fast. The few Miata owners, some turbo owners, another wheel to wheel Miata owner, that have driven the car, agree that it's stupid fast and they believe the dyno numbers. I know dynos vary, and the guys who are running them aren't always "scientists", but I've had some fast cars and I believe the numbers.

I know she ain't much to look at, but allot of time and money went into making that power. That's where I came up with the price. It is an obo deal also.

No worries man. I know it costs money to properly build an engine. That's why I stated I'm not trying to thread crap, just be realistic. (and since you actually asked for input)

Good luck with the sale. If you're open for negotiation you should be able to sell it.

Well that's pretty cool.

Lets see if you can prove me wrong and pick up 75whp

18psi was right. Ran out of head and turbo. 34psi at 5k and it just kept falling off down to 25 at 7300......
Made 37whp more, but around 60 foot pounds of torque... :-)
