The cops tagged him twice on the drive home....

The guy is insane.

You bastard, I'd give my left nut for one...my buddy's mom has one, and it's as quiet as a bank vault at 140wmph.

Pictures......... And is it running with turbo installed?

Megasquirt is popular here, there is also emanage blue, Emanage Ultimate, some have used the apexi safc but I would pass. How much boost, what yr is your miata, how much HP do you want?
If you have a 1.6L and using the afm, you can pull the cover off and adjust it some. There is a screw to lean or richen for idle.


As to what management you use needs to be decided by how much power you want.

I personally wouldn't want a remote mount. But He atleast he accomplished one. That is better than the last few.

Also, if any of the videos of remote mounts are any indication, there's nothing to worry about.

A pair of turbos roll and tumble along the sidewalk, walking their pet humans. Everything ages in reverse, microwaves flash freeze food, your neighbor's dog was flammable even before "accidentally" pouring him with accelerant, and Hondas are fast. You are now entering...
