Love the color choice on the turbo. Not to big a fan of the turbo itself but the color choice is nice ^^. Why but so much money into this project and stick with that? Are you doing and strengthening to the transmission components that is quite a bit to but though the stock tranny without and modification. Esp if your going to be launching / driving it hard which i am sure you will be

Swapped new coil on cyl 2-3 and misfire is gone.

I haven't read the entire thread, but have you considered the FM Big Spark Kit? Works like a hot damn, especially when coupled with the NGK race plugs.

If you are going to go the big spark kit, I would highly recommend just buying the bracket and spark plug wires from FM. You can source the coils from a local junk yard for a ton cheaper and save some cash. I think I have about $250 into my setup.

"a lot stronger" is really relative, there are a few people on here who constantly break 6 speeds.

I mean, there's that. I'm just saying that the CT would NEED a built BP to shine.

im selling the kit because my dad now knows that he like the feeling of a turbocharged miata and he drove my car on the strip last weekend and he now want more power and an efr lol.

he like the kind of power i have in my car (577whp supra) so i think that with 400-425whp in a miata it will be pretty close of me regarding power and ill never get 400whp out of the ct26. also a 6758 will spool a little bit faster too....

With his luck on the stock block while using AIDS and making more power than most anyone else, a 5 speed should be perfect for him.

If he really is running the powerband he posted, and beating on the car regularly, and it still hasn't skipped a beat, then I am really impressed. You can count on one hand the amount of 10:1 compression stock rod BP's that have thus far done that.

I wonder what his ignition total timing is with the stock ecu and the fic. I'm guessing lots of boost, no timing, keeping cyl pressures down and taking it easy on those rods.
