If I can make 350-400hp with a log you can make 250hp.

because I'm never, ever, ever driving 20mph in 2nd gear. at least never in a situation where I need power. it's a scenario that only exists in your head, and not in real life.

and THAT is why your idea is stupid.

guess you didn't see the first thread about looking for a turbo for my goals

stefast I bet it does have a impact, instead of just letting the exhaust hit into one another I rather try to optimize the exhaust pulses.

lol soviet, believe what you want

Oh, I did, and this is where I tell you that you should properly size your goals for the motor too.

I'm interested in optimizing airflow to get the turbo to spool up as soon as possible, which the log I have has many issues in that reguard.

Techsalvager finally figured out that everyone was mocking him, and retaliated by dinging everyone's props for the last few pages.

This thread is the gift that keeps on giving!

By the way, my car's still for sale, Tech.

maybe you should google how a turbo works??
you want more power on a turbo and shorter spool time LOL!
obvious troll is obvious.
why not try to be different and twin charge your miata.
or drill a hole on the exhaust manifold and connect a tube to were you sit and when you drive the car blow the tube so it'll help the turbo spool thats a cheap solution =]

I'm not accusing anyone of duplicate accounts, merely observing there is someone +1ing all of his posts - even completely ------- irrelevant posts that I fail to see why someone in a million years would ever give props to. I've seen people like Hustler or Brainy dump tons of info in a thread, get no props, then Tech comes in with a questionably relevant post, and BAM, props.

I only say it because thats the only logical explanation. Though logic doesnt seem to apply to him.
