It will explode in a big fireball and you will be liable for 15million worth of damages. Also your greatgrandmas body will be dug up and sodemized.

Learn to search and make a god damn intro thread.

i love this thread already, it is most certainly relevant to my interests.

yeah 9 you should be fine. 12 is probably a safe number..but it really depends on the rest of your setup. 250whp is kind of the same reliable established limit, assuming you have a good tune of course.

Yes, you can boost a stock Miata engine. using the "SEARCH" is real helpful.

9psi will definitely blow it. And I'm assuming you're running a massive turbo from ebay, no engine management, and you have vtec stickers on your car.

We aren't that familiar with B18 motors here. But in my professional opinion I'd say you would be fine with 9 psi. Please, no more than 10 psi on the stock longblock. And make sure to get a respectable FMU so you can tune your B18. Okay! . Try http://www.honda-tech.com/ for more information.

Don't boost your engine. It will blow.
Boost your transmission. Those can handle up to 80psi
