Default 13.1 @ 110 mph

I went to Edgewater drag strip near Cincinnati this last night. I had been on an 1/8th but not a quarter. It was pretty sweet. I was very happy with my car. Car isn't really tuned. It was pretty cold so i had some problems with hitting overboost (201 kpa) but once i got the mbc dialed in the car was like a rocket. I would like to go back very soon and see if i can get that 60' down to about a 2.0.

12s easy with a 2.0 60ft, 1.8 60ft and you should be around 12.7. Nice times!

Very nice!

So you say you were hitting the overboost at 201kpa, what did you dial it down to/what did you make that run at?

I was running about 14psi. It was dialed down just a tick to get it to stop hitting overboost.

If you have enough fuel it's easier just to raise the overboost limit

Haha yeah, but i feel bad about raising it. I dont want to break things and a 110mph quarter is pretty fast for a miata. All in all i am pretty satisfied with this car, considering that this time last year i could barely change my own oil.

Very nice. Gotta up my boostasezz!!! Went a couple weeks ago to the track here in Portland. A Mitsu tuner, English Racing, is here in P-land. There were a whole bunch of their customers with stupid fast (10 second) DSM's and Evo's. My high 13 Miata didn't get much attention!
