Wow...that's going to be a nice setup.

Reroute, WI, all safety blankets or planning on pushing the envelope?

Oh wow...yeah looking at the number you've got now I can't wait to see what you're planning on.

The built 1.6L guys really are my heroes.

I don't think 450 whp is out of the question with 30 +/- Pounds of boost on pump/meth I don't see a reason why not, hopefully that's some sort of 1.6L Miata record? Until my bike seems slower than my car I cannot be fully satisfied.

I always loved the 636. My brother rides its replacement...an '07 ZX-6R.

I can stay with him as long as he's a gear above me

I can actually pull on him if he's two gears up.

I don't think your goals are too lofty at all...and they will certainly get you to where you're dusting supersports.

I don't think my car will EVER feel as fast as my old Daytona 955i though. If that ever happens I'll put a full cage in it.

How much power do you make if you don't mind me asking? I have never really ran a bike, but the thought of it makes me smile.

Don't have any idea, but a combination of my spark table, duty cycles and boost level/volumetric flow rate tell me I'm right above 200whp.

I'm working out the kinks in my WI setup right now and hope to seriously advance my very conservative spark table.


My only concern was your intake manifold...but the pic just showed up, or I just saw it...and it looks like you're covered there.

Hell...I would have done the same thing if I opened a box and that was what was inside.

Nice, do you have any more pics of the intake manifold? Inside and different angles?

Anytime after winters over, just let me know.


Also, I didn't get a chance to take anymore pictures of the intake manifold. When I pull it off again before final install I will snap some more.
