Yes it is. The garage is not that big really, just a regular two car garage of which I can use one half, it's just my wide angle lens makes it look so big.

I'm waiting for the ETD H-beam rods because someone didn't pay and they are not shipping them out yet.
I'm getting the pistons from here or a local shop that builds mustangs: http://www.importperformanceparts.ne...tons_ford.html

That sucks about the rods, I called John at ETD and he said they have them in stock ready to ship before I ordered them. I didn't buy through the group buy, so maybe they'll ship mine, I need them asap so I can take the engine to the shop.

Will 550cc injectors from 88 rx7 turbo with red tops fit? Or are they different than 89-91?

Haha, yes indeed. I've got a bunch more but that's the only one that I put up.

That skyline won FD seattle, maybe that's why.

There is nothing wrong with 4krpm spool, you are staying in boost most of the time anyways.

I bought my miata for a trackday/daily driver car, not to drag race. All I am saying is that a miata could be at 500whp and be a better trackday car then one at 300whp.

I will probably not be keeping the miata for long after I graduate. I will build a seven.
Must have not been too fast, 20G's suck.

All disagree with you. They say it means adjustable.

A real AFPR does not need a stock damper/regulator.

Rising rate, I mean the fuel pressure rises at a 1:1 rate with boost. This is how the ENTIRE rest of the internet describes an RR AFPR, I guess on the miata forums this has a different meaning. Go to a supra forum, 240, dsm, whatever forum and say AFPR, 99% of the people will say adjustable, because that is what it means.


The stock Regulator on a DSM or whatever rises at a 1:1 ratio. The FPR we use basically takes that 1:1 ratio and makes it something like 6:1 all the way to 12:1 so we can use basically stock injectors, and add extra fuel with fuel pressure. Please, dont post unless you know how we do things around here. The miata tuning world is just a little different and you dont even have a turbo miata, so I would just read instead of talking out of your A$$.:gay:

I have sportmax 002 wheels.

they make them in 15x8 and 16x8, I have both, with 0 offset, so they stick out past the fender with no spacers, you have to roll/pull the fenders to fit these. I can post some pictures if you want.

RusMan, did you get you rods yet? The group buy is supposed to be shipped out this week, and we are supposed to get them in another week or so because they are first shipped to buffalo and than to everyone from there.
