So when the stock ecu started up and saw rich, it kept pulling fuel until the car stalled. Just a thought....hey, I got the oil pressure problem right....

Unrelated, I didn't see pics of the hood. Did you have to make cutouts for the over the rad piping?

I have run w/o an 02 sensor for about 6-7 months now. Its really the only thing that can cure the lean tip in on my bootleg setup. It runs fine, but gets like 15mph....LOL.

Yeah, but running positive pressure into the crankcase vent (which is what it looks like he's doing, as it still looks like the stock car) is a lot different than running it to atmosphere or plumbing it to constant vacuum.

Actually I just looked at a pic and hes got a PCV valve hooked up. On the other side where the crankcase would normally vent back through the throttle body hes got it un-hooked venting to atmosphere. Thats exactly what I have except I have a little filter and not the long tube still attached.

I'm confused. All that hard work (and big talk of a super secret turbo kit....haha) and you return to stock? Are you going save the setup and work on it after school?

The secret kit comes later This is a practice kit, and im starting my last year at school. ITs going to be pretty crazy. My g/f is 1.5 hours away from me (lots of driving), I am going to have senior project (which most likley be team leader for building minibaja truck), Im the president of the SOciety of Automotive Engineers, and i work for the department of energy and help with the head of my department's personal consulting.

Its going to be a pretty hectic time, and while i might have a few hours here or there for the miata, Im going to want that time driving it around (especially in the misery of Peoira)

And if right now I scrapped the whhole thing and started over. I would only be down $200 in materials evertything else (turbo, emanage, afpr, peirburg) are still good
