I saw this like 4 years ago. Read about it, it's funny. Stock injectors supply enough fuel, no intercooler, 10-12psi. Sounds like bs to me. I do like the centrifugal setup over a roots anyday though.

From what I remember they made them, discontinued them, and from the looks of it are making them again?

Seriously...I run lean as **** (stretching it with det cans and WI), and I can't even dream of 13:1 AFRs under load (well, maybe I am still that high at 6psi, but certainly not at 8).

Fucktards.

When i saw that i was like 205 at 6psi? Someone should buy that and sue them for false advertising.

Edit: Wait!!! I figured it out. 8 psi gives you 230, and 6 psi gives you 205 so 2 psi gives you a 25 hp gain, that is 12.5 hp/psi. so 6 times 12.5 is 73 hp over stock. Thats it!

Yep. They show a whopping 165WHP on their stage one dyno. I guess a Miata has a 20+ percent driveline loss. ******* liars. 3K for that kit? Ripoff. A basic Vortech, a chip, and some brackets and tubes. Why would anyone get that over a Rotrex?
