Ok, So i got a new car which made me stop working on the miata for a while.

1987 Chrysler Conquest
Got a 14b Turbo for it running 15# Boost..
We love these cars at my house.

But, back to the miata.
recently the front driver side Cross something broke witch caused the front end to hit the ground "ouch" So got new stuff and its back on the road.. Still don't have the clutch installed due to "Lazyness" / new car.


For sure cant get it dyno tuned without my 6-puck in.

But.. I plan to try to get my clutch installed and try to get a exhaust on in the next weekish.

been running straight Downpipe since the turbo was installed.. Gott love waking the neighborhood!

also, I dont understand some things about MSPNP.. Like how to set injector PW's So my car is like running hella rich...


-Michael

I got the clutch put in, in the process of getting a exhaust put on it. Just waiting until I sell my bike, then it's going to the dyno to get tuned.

Out ran a LS1 Camaro from 40-120 earlier, started blowing out the spark so I got off of it and was still nose to nose with him. Still needs a little bit of work, but all in all it drives great.

Planning on some 15'' CCW Classics w/ Tein Coilovers after I get it tuned.

yeah, kinda throttled it in the boost after that. I don't really remember gapping the sparkplugs when I put them in because of a hurry.

The lines were crossed, he just didn't check it good enough.
