Build Thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/build-thr...-inside-74115/


I got my car tuned last Friday at Church Automotive in LA last weekend. I am very pleased with the power it put down. I asked him to tune it to 230 ft-lb of torque (which ended up being at 14psi). Then set the EBC to 8psi for now which still makes great power.

At the higher boost the tuner said the power dropped off due to the bov cracking open. I am going to switch it to a recirc instead to fix this and make it more quiet. Also my waste gate actuator rod was rubbing against my feed line causing some boost fluctuation. I'm getting that fixed asap too.

In video #2 there seems to be some sort of pipe hanging from your exhuast that has what looks like a metallic tape hanging from it. What is the deal with that?

Yeah i've seen tuners stick the probe in the exhaust for tuning a/f but never anything that big.... looks restrictive lol

I was having issues with the EBC over boosting so I brought the car back for a retune. It now seems to hold 11psi very steady.

Its for AFR but I doubt it restricts the flow much if at all.
