I'm not going to quote your "wall of text" here. But if you were to start talking about your clutch setup on the internet for the world to see, assuming the team you work for isn't some "also ran." I'm SUUUUREEEE you would be fired on the spot. Don't be stupid. several of the things you posted are pieces of highly proprietary information and vary significantly from team to team.

Hi guys I'm op. I know how to fabricate but I bought a header that is an obvious piece of crap just to cut the flange off and weld on a new one and it only cost me $20 more than it would have cost to just weld up my own manifold from scratch that wont crack in 100 miles.

OP, It's cool that you know stuff that we don't, but we didn't ask for any of that information. You came here and "asked" us to waste our time spoon feeding you information so that you could save about 10 minutes of reading and looking at pictures.
People have worked very hard to lay out all of the answers to your questions in easy to read stickies. You could have easily read all of those plus a few build threads in the amount of time it took for the first eggplant to appear in this thread.

Rion has been directed to the DIY FAQ and that will tell him what he needs to know at this point. We've been as helpful as we could be until he has done some reading and has some background.

I'm gonna quote this just so I can laugh at it again later

If you knew a damn thing about the car you supposedly work on, you'd know that the car pictured is based out of Iowa, not Ohio.

i tried 3 times to read that wall of text and gave up.

I'm assuming you're applauding us for our candor.

Thank you codrus. Figure ill take my tax return and get a megasquirt. It was just discerning when all I was looking for was a no the stock ecu can't swing that much timing or whether or not it could even compensate for anything at all.

You sound suspiciously like a recent graduate of a wyotech-esque school.

You know the types, 9 months of class work, and all of a sudden, you're a goddamn expert.

Also, how pathetic are you being paid if your tax return is gonna be spent buying a megasquirt.... That's like $7-800.......... Many of the professional road techs I talk to wouldn't even mention the price point of many products...let alone ones that are priced for miata-folk...


Wait...you say you have experience tuning a blown mega v8, BUT ALL OF THE PRINCIPLES JUST MAGICALLY GOT FORGOTTEN WHEN DISCUSSING YOUR MIATA?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!!?


**** this idiot, I vote ban

I would not say recent. Been about 5 years ago and have no problem saying it cause I don't portray myself to be some ******* super tech. If I had a proper ecm I would have no real issue setting it up, I understand that, but letting the stock one do it for me for now was all I was trying to accomplish. And I would love to know where to find a ms for 7-800, everything I find is 1200.

And yes I do get paid like **** even though I've been doing it for 4 years. If it wasn't such a neat job and had such good benefits I would have quit a long time ago but how many people get to say they do what I do. I'd just be happy if I didn't have to drive the semi anymore and could focus solely on the clutch

Bro, I make pretty damn good money, and that's about all I get for a return. No kids, no wife and I rent. Not much of a break for me.
