If it goes 110K in full boost i'll still buy another. Wiescos will help, as well as Balance and blueprint.+ shot peening rods.

Looking good, I can't wait until I get ready to tear down the heads on mine. I am planning on getting rid of any casting imperfections on the head, and installing new lifters, and just changing out all of the seals and the guides. I am still trying to decide if I should get a more aggressive intake cam.

your miata rolled of the manufacturing line weighing in under 2000lbs? or you removed a bunch of stuff, retained the interior and it weighs under 2k? My 91 ITA Miata weighed 2010lbs - hardtop and cage but no softop assembly, and I removed everything I could think of.
