You have been offered as much advise as can be given with the information you have provided us. You have also been advised on how to get more information.

Good luck on exploring the limits of your motor and buying parts one time.

Thread-starter, would you say you weigh more or less than an American Mallard?

Well, that's not going to work then. There are other philosphical constraints of which I can use to justify your banning. I highly recommend you take a few days off from posting, maybe attempt to court a woman, then get back to us on your success with the finer sex. At that point we will re-evaluate the need to keep you around here.

So, you are just looking for a "my dick is bigger than your dick" dyno number? Just making sure to see if it is worth the efforts of everyone here to help you pursue this goal.

I would truly be interested to see someone with a 6258 run absolutely ALLOFIT for the sake of a dyno number. I feel like only entertaining posts could follow. Perhaps amazing dyno numbers, perhaps a grenaded engine and shrapnel wounds. Win win.

I'll probably give it a shot assuming I get a BE oil pump and 949 damper. But I'm not going to build my head for 30psi of boost if I plan on running 10.

Where I drive I could not use more than 10psi. I really have no idea what I may want a year, or 3 years from now and want to make sure my head is built for it. If the 6258 is not efficient above a certain number then of course I will not push above that. I believe, with no experience, that aftermarket valve springs are needed for my build and want to buy the ones that will take whatever I throw at them.

Apparently this was a really stupid question that upset some of you, I am sorry?

Today I ordered Super Tech Dual light springs. My hope is the dual spring set up will help with the VVT cam harmonics.

Yes, I would like to know what it has....dick measure? Never wanted to get on the track with my car before but figure with this one I might. If I do I want "all of it". So I will have who ever is the best tuner for our cars give me a good tune, then use EBC and turn it down to a streetable 250ish for my wife to drive.

Ryan, I agree! Hoping for the numbers tho...lol Video will be rolling! Maybe GoPro under the hood just in case?

I will start a build thread soon, but yes, I have the BE oil pump, ATI damper, fully balanced rotating assembly.....

I think you should just get the car running at 10 psi before you start going for bragging rights. You'll learn a ton doing the initial build.

If you insist on going straight for a dyno-only bragging setup (in a miata? why?), why not just spray a 200 shot on top of your 10-12 psi? It will probably be less of a hassle than making your compressor violate the laws of physics.

Was it really necessary to bump a more than 2 year old thread for that comment?
