Honestly it won't blow the motor. You do run the risk of detonation though and every time it happens it knocks a little more life off the motor. Eventually it will crack or break.

Think of it this way. If you cracked a ring the ring could function fine for thousands of miles under low power. Once you ad more power though the crack in the ring now becomes a serious fault point. Now you upgrade your ems and injectors and are running twice the boost. What do you think is going to happen to that cracked ring?

Are you willing to risk that? You could very likely drive around fine with your current setup. I'd just make sure I never went into WOT.

he already "drifted" on current setup in its pathetic state.

do you really think that engine is in good enough shape to warrant trying to preserve it?

18psi is right though. That manifold is a total piece of **** and is a liability to the car.

I already know what you're gonna say about this lol. She's not perfect but I have a lot of time into the project so the less dirt and rocks she sees the better. Turning volume to the max for all the hate to come.

You know, at first I was going to post like 5 pages of:

And I still think its hilarious.

But,

I'll give you one thing: it looks less riced out and terrible than I thought it would.

Given you're age, and your maturity level, that's actually not that bad. At least from the outside anyway.

Whats done to it?

Lose the roof rack and i'd rock the **** out of that. Congrats on finding un-cracked fenders.

I had an 87 Si. Very fun car.



Now explain to use how you can put that together but ended up with what you showed us as your Miata?

Every other part of your setup is cheap **** which is just good enough to run low power through, none of it is 'solid'. And most of your setup is missing, like a way to properly control fuel and timing.





Also you forgot to take your roof rack off.

I'm not a honda guy, but I would guess due to the size of the aftermarket (and lets face it, the culture), the **** that gets thrown up on ebay is probably better quality than the same stuff for miatas.

If it's a 1.6 diff, doesn't that count as half a drift?

Full forged internal d16a1 (dohc) with a 75 shot of n2o obd1 tuned on crome. Interior is basically stock. oem crx floor mats, 88 prelude seats, nardi wheel, 2 12" jl audo subs, kenwood excelon deck, amped kicker 4" door speakers and optional rear 6 3/4" speakers. Also stripped out the stock sound deadener and dynamatted the entire interior with a layer of 3/8" neoprene where all the stock wool type stuff was, also filled all gaps in the quarter panels and stucture of the car with expanding foam. Suspension is koni yellows all the way around with 400lb rear springs and 24mm torsion bars. That's probably all you need to know.

It definitely is.


But that doesn't really completely account for the pile of **** his Miata is.

Haha cool CRX actually. The stickerd roof rack fails, but if you use it i can't hate.

I'll venture out and say MS1 is fine for you, its so many leagues better than your current setup it's not even funny.

After you build a car like that you realize you want something you can go ***** out in and not have a worry about hurting it.

And no, the crx isn't an ebay car. First gens are hard to find parts for. Theres not much aftermarket until the 88 Civics.
Also, yes, I no longer have the roof rack. But I didn't half *** that either, put a lot of clear over the stickers, came out quite nicely.

The exhaust, t25, and charge pipes are all fine up to 200hp.

Theres 3 types of people that visit this forum.

Smart people that know their **** who do know their ****.
Average people who dont know their **** but learned their ****.
Dumb people who dont know their **** but think they know their ****.

The first 2 usually stick around, the last kind go to CR.

I understand, but what you have built is the EXACT OPPOSITE of that.

You forgot the 4th: don't know and so stupid and ignorant that they don't even know that they don't know. Those usually stickerbomb a roof rack on a CRX and keep it garaged cause its a show queen now

Oh dear lord.

You almost had some respect going, then you fucked it all up. It's like a hooker that fell asleep 40 minutes into her hour long contract.
