You don't have anything more than a Greddy kit.


Why even bother boosting if it's only 4psi? That's like jacking off without the intention to ***.

No, I'm willing to bet that nobody here has anything nice to say. If you had read anything on this forum you would know that "DRIFT" cars are not popular here and you might have learned the basics of building owning a turbo car. Also on a side note a 1.6l miata thats not ever making 200whp not a drift car anyway.

BTW I like the mis matched wheels.

You did a pretty good job smashing panels and sticker bombing your car with stickers from places/manufacterers youd never buy miata parts from.

I always thought that the only reason to own a Miata was to have fun. Until I posted on here everyone I ever met who drove a Miata was actually pretty cool. I didn't build the car to be fast. I just wanted a little more than what bolt ons could give me. I don't have small dick syndrome. I like to have fun in my car, I have nothing to prove. And if I had something to prove I sure as hell wouldn't be driving a car where 95% of the owners are gay dudes, women, and middle aged men. If I wanted to go fast I'd build a 5.0 Mustang. And Lee, why the hell can't a sub 200whp car be considered a drift car? I've seen plenty of stock corolla drivers drift better than the sr s13 drivers.

Well so far, statistically speaking...

Everyone on this page is either gay, a middle aged man, or a woman.

I'm a woman. Which are you?

He'd have to work real hard to blow it up on 4psi, unfortunately.

I bet that thing is maybe finally making the rated CHP to the wheels.

There are actually quite a few things that will kill it regardless of how much boost. He's going to be running rich and wearing his rings and cyliders pretty nicely. 4 psi and ragging on it is also good enough when combined with fuel enrichment to make #4 get all hot and bothered...

I say 10-15k miles.

I actually blew up my first motor this way.... I intended to though as it was smoking like a chimney @ 165,000 miles.

It was noticeably faster. Probably somewhere around~140hp. My motor got delivered though and the day before I planned on swapping I ran ALLOFIT. I made it to the gym and back but barely. haha.

the purpose of owning a miata is to join this site and to **** on every other moron out there. especially ones with daddy issues who are into figure skating and wearing high heels.


i like to have fun too, it doesnt involve running into guadrails and pretending i have friends to impress.

Sometimes I wonder why I bother posting on threads like this because the op will be off banging his dad anyway and forget all about mt very shortly. But then I realize that I also bought a miata so I could come on here and **** on morons.

Brain is relentless though. Even after someone admits they were bat **** crazy and wrong he still continues to post empirical evidence of wrongness. ***.

Greddy kit is capable... only when you ditch 80% of the kit though. Get a rollbar OP, or don't - nothing wrong with thinning the gene pool.

Brain, I guess I didn't make it clear that this is my track car. I don't drift on the street, as a matter of fact on my daily drive I try to keep as much vacuum as possible. The dent in the quarter panel was there when I bought the car, it got backed into by an f250 in a costco parking lot. And I can relate to your other post "I think the biggest difference is I dont pretend to have any friends, i know i dont." All this car is for is to have fun, I know most people hate my car and don't want to talk to me. Lets me focus on just having fun.

I know I need a rollbar, was kinda stupid to put money into the turbo first. But the track I go to is a go cart track, super slow and lots of runoff space with nearly no chance of a flip.

And to everyone who has posted and will post on this thread.. I built this car as a hatemobile/idgaf car. I already have a nice car and it kinda sucks to drive cause you get all paranoid something is going to happen.

You'll understand that there is a hazing ritual that goes on here. With the current cost of Megasquirt, they will reasonably call you dumb for not running proper engine management with boost. Yes it is more expensive. People here are very focused on doing things right, and doing it all the way (e.g. why run 4 psi?). Just how it goes. As long as you admit you're taking the easy way, the not-optimal way, and the way that may blow up your engine, then whatever, no big deal.
