I think the op seems pompous and faggy. This isn't any different than any other dude coming in here spouting some stupid nonsense about research and horsepower numbers like some chump. I'm mad bro. I read a bunch of stupid **** on the internet.

That eggplant alien picture is the coolest thing this week, and should forever be saved in the Miataturbo.net archives

I'm mad that the eggplant alien beat THANKS CORKY!

That said, as the Godfather of Eggplant, it's more like picking a favorite child, and i'm ok with this.

Sorry to break the norm and actually take criticism with a grain of salt. Learning is part of the process and every bit of information helps. Aside from the rather course and abrasive nature a few of my responders had it was all in good sport. Learned a lot and have been sent in the right direction now hopefully.

And as far as horsepower and "numbers" are concerned, I'm new to the "miata platform" not so much the performance modification aspect. I've been around a few outstanding performers and have had a hand building quite a few myself. Granted honda's tend to be a bit less picky when it comes to forced induction.

OP- wise idea to have the liter-bike for those high-speed kicks. Build a Miata and shoot for 300 RELIABLE rwhp and midrange delivery...and you'll get those same kicks, and can use those kicks anywhere at any time...not just for 500rpm increments on the highway.

All dynos read low when you are holding a graph from your car. Lol

How did I get dragged into this? I post everyday, wtf.

Edit: Holy ****, OP you're ******* stupid. Gotta bust out the serious pics for this.

Edit: You're not impressing anyone. The 323/protege crowd have made WAY more power than us and did it a long time ago. I traded my 450hp rated intercooler for the 350hp rated unit after recently riding in my friend's new E30 build (400-ish whp). Guess what? He ******* hates it. It spins everywhere, draws way too much attention AND they actually have trans/diffs/axles that are worth a ****.

The novelty wears off. I'm already on the lookout for a smaller turbo, too. It's ******* pointless. Try as you might but you won't feel a thing from getting your e-***** sucked by random ------s on a car forum.

OP :

Trackspeed Engineering

Best money you'll spend on a 1.8 and fully built !

They even show the recipe for success that many of us followed...

Component list:
-Supertech forged pistons (choice of compression ratios/bore size)
-Manley forged H-beam connecting rods
-ARP2000 Rod Bolts
-ACL Race main, rod, and thrust bearings
-ARP head studs
-ARP main studs
-Boundary Engineering "Street/Strip" oil pump with billet gears
-Supertech Viton valve seals
-Gates Racing timing belt
-OEM Mazda seals and gaskets
-Full cylinder head refresh (hot tank, new manganese/bronze valve guides, 3-angle valve job, pressure test, and resurface)
-Balanced and Blueprinted

Maximum operating RPM: 7400rpm
Maximum engine power: 600whp+
Maximum operating RPM with upgraded valvetrain: 8500rpm

Ask Andrew about their 11.75'' big brake kit, you'll need some brake too with this much power and this is one the best money can buy...

Go on their site and READ ! After do the same thing at 949racing.com, you'll thank me later on.

Easy and both of them are not far from you...

Edit: Vlad, I really want a set of leather high back NB seats. PM me if you come across a pair.

OP, word from the not-so wise; when my 3.3 arrives, I am NEVER touching my car again. EVER. ******* NEVER.
