I'm confused at what your IC routing is.

The original owner of the car had the Fly'in Miata kit on it. So the intercooler tubing kinda goes all over the place.
One of the winter projects is an upgrade.

Although the car is running extremely well right now, I have an opportunity to be probably the first Miata to run the new AEM Infinity ecu. I am excited about the level of control and potential adjustability this thing has.

Looks good!

Were you talking to me about wheels? You got them from Cameron? If so, then yes.

yeah they were Cameron's. Did you find the tread pattern kinda loud?
There won't much tire left soon. It kinda like:

1st- accelerate - tire slippage to redline -shift
2nd- accelerate - tire slippage to redline - shift
3rd- a little slippage - it hooks up - Star Trek effect of going to warp!
4th- more Star Trek - neck and brain hurt - can't wipe smile off face.

I am very interested to see the Infinity working on a miata. Are you doing the install yourself? What model of Infinity?

Hopefully you're not getting suckered in on hopes, dreams, and marketing. Every single AEM product looks way better on paper than it does in actual use.

Yeah I'm sucked in. It's all here. I believe it's the 8H model. A friend of mine is making a patch harness. I won't be letting go of the current one unless I'm 100% comfortable.

I took the car out for a drive and got some spool data. I was worried about cops and didn't know I wasn't at WOT, lol.

Oh I see your point now....

Using a product to win multiple national championships makes it bad for actual use

Sure does, my AEM isnt making my car any faster or slower at auto-x compared to an MS, Haltech, Motec, or Bosch, just more annoying to tune.

Ok, I do see and agree with the point you are making. It's just not the point I thought you were originally making. My bad.

Jeff, Any changes to this car since your last update? Did you ever get virtualdyno numbers? Can you do a log of your pull? I have VD on my computer if you send me the log.

Also, looking forward to seeing it again at the dyno day. Can you bring your laptop so we can see what the AEM software looks like? Have you ever done any dyno tuning? I spent a couple hundred bucks getting a baseline on my car (at different boost levels) and felt it was a worthwhile investment.
