Why do you think I have compressor surge?

It sounds like it when he lets off the throttle on the dyno run

Gonna have to look into this. I'm not hearing it but you might be right. I just thought my BOV was just obnoxiously loud. Thanks.

If you are still using/planning to use MS and adjusting your injector deadtime properly your stock pump is good to about 300hp (or so says Flyin' Miata).

Any update on how everything is going? Did you bump up the boost yet? Is your manifold still in one piece?? Curious on that as I have yet to purchase any components and found this thread searching specificially for that OBX Manifold.

I have not yet turned up the boost since I have been working on my gt4 project but the car is holding up just fine. Well with the exception of this.



I used a crap gasket and it turned to dust. Last Friday I took everything apart for inspection and everything looks great. No cracks on the manifold, boosting 8 psi, downpipe is solid and she's faster than most stock cars .

Use OEM gaskets.

Or flatten your ---- and run no gaskets.

I fly cut the manifold and went without a gasket. No problems since.

Hey man. I am going you can help me out. 99 Turbo Miata

Your car has made it to Texas and I am looking to buy. Stumbled across your build which is awesome to see the work done to it and history of the car. Only thing is before I go drive 4 hours to look at it was there any problem with it making you to sell it in the first place? It seems legit but I don't want to make the drive for nothing.

I couldn't send a pm

Thanks

Yeah, I noticed that. It hasn't been driven much either. Not that many more miles on it.
