You're not going to get anywhere near that on pump.
You might get close spraying the hose down with water/meth/unicorn ****

Meh, I think you made the right choice.
400+ is pointless when you can't put it down without breaking the drivetrain.
Sliding all over the road gets old fast too. Even if the difference between them is small, I'd still prefer moar lowend/response/sp00l

Yeah, 6258 is the best miata turbo unless you're into measuring dicks. And if you're into measuring dicks, then you gotta compare to mine.

dude, there are like 8 E85 stations in Tampa. Stop complaining. Here in Norfolk, there are 3 stations of which 2 are on Navy bases. Luckily, I found out that the Navy stations are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Where the **** are these stations. Last time I searched the only ones were on the air force base which is not open to the public. I also technically live in Dunedin and don't want to drive 40 minutes every time I need gas.

EDIT: I just looked again. There seem to be 4 stations within 50 miles. They are all Thorntons which are brand new down here. I didn't realize they brought E85 with them when they came down. This changes everything.

True, all signs point to 6258. I'm just going to continue worrying about it

55.5mi one-way to the nearest E85 station What are you guys using to find these stations? Best one I've seen thus far is Flex Fuel Station Finder |-Ethanol Retailer

Full race just posted the 7163 dyno that soviet posted on NABISCO and they said it was a single scroll setup, IWG not twin scroll.

Twin scrolls - 2 out of 3. Even though our site is 100% Miata focused, I still have customers ordering these turbos for other vehicles so it's hard to tell how much of this is from the Miata community.
