seems like that might cause some drivability problems since you'd be flowing far more air per degree of opening. not sure i'd want to go that large on a street miata. anyone have experience with 70mm on a boosted miata?

There are only two openings I use anyway... closed and WOT. 70mm will be fine, if it's a little touchy, I'll get a VRTL from RJW.

yeah, im gonna have to drill it for the PCV valve since it doesnt have a place for one, other than that mine is drilled for a 1.6L TB so it should be a fairly easy bolt on affair since I know my way around the miata engine bay
