Interesting. Details on the home made part? I did cowl induction too, but mine looks different from yours.

All kidding aside (yes, even the wire wheels), your car is really clean. Maybe I'm just partial to Silverstone.

Cold air is where it's at. I really need to get off my butt and do an intercooler.

Thanks. Don't want to jack this thread, more details here at an unnamed site for old ghey men with stock cars or superchargers

http://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread...ht=prm+snorkel

This might not be a very practical or cheep way to do this but it's want I "wanted". So it's what I made, no better explanation for it. Also on the HP figure I think 4 is from the colder air and 4 is from the timing that did not get pulled out by my J&S due to the cold air. I run full stock timing and let the J&S do the rest, try to minimize what the J&S does with this cold air / cowl induction mod and 100 octane Sunoco 260. Although I did the dyno run on pump gas I should try it again on a full tank of 260.

Please tell me you're not also using zipties to hold the radiator on too.

I'm using BMW motor mounts off a e30 6 cylinder.
yes it is zip ties on the radiator, so I can get aligned for mounting points.
