What kind of hp gains can you get out of a stock internal 1.6l miata with a aftermarket cam? What company's in us make a good miata cam?

Without MegaSquirt? I'd venture zero gain, or at the very least, very very little gain.

I've dyno'd two bone stock engines with standard I/H/E, one did 124hp and 115ft/lbs, the other did 116hp and 108ft/lbs.

Do that first, everything else is a waste until you remove the AFM.

Then get a 1.8 for the same price as a cam and get more gain than a cam would.

Damn, you're right. I was hoping we had an actual moron on our hands, but after that last post, it has to be a troll.

That even the vague hinting of harming kitties will be met with swift justice?

because you're too stupid to play by the rules and think this is your own personal craigslist.

and now you'll get perma banned because you made a dupe account.
