I'm already on it. Unfortunately i called 3 of their offices and tried several of their extensions and only got ahold of a secretary that knew nothing about turbos. Everyone else (customer support, warranty claims) went to voicemail. I'm pretty sure i called during their business hours (3CST) so i don't know whats up. I'll try tomorrow a little earlier i guess.

If what Himni Racing is true thats a game changer for sure.

I'd point to Sav's post however. I'd trust Sav a thousand fold more than Himni - and Himni's giving a textbook vendor scam of "Okay, we'll give you a discount, so buy more ---- from us since your old ---- went bad!"

Well.... Internet detective time.

There's Brock Fraser - Director of Advanced Application Development.
He's the guy who, apparently, runs the whole EFR program and is the author of the "EFR Technical Training Guide", aka "EFR Bible" document. Drives a 993 turbo.

Then there's Doug Erber - Engineering Director. He's actually a member here and *used to* have a miata - it was listed for sale here
https://www.miataturbo.net/cars-sale...a-$6500-58322/

Both work in the BW North Carolina office. I really don't want to bother either of them - I want customer relations or marketing or something of that sort.

Clearly this was an attorney based decision, not a decision from anyone in marketing nor engineering.

If it was an attorney, he should be fired.

Ok so faith in EFR - restored.
Got an email today. I emailed BW directly earlier and I guess that -or- this thread got around. I was asked not to post the whole email, so here's the cliff notes:

- BW doesn't deny claims like this.
- Himni never contacted BW and are not a BW partner/distributor. BW doesn't even know who they are, lol

What did I gather from this whole experience with Himni? If you want a "fresh to the market" turbo, buy it from authorized retailers. In this case, from Full Race.

I posted this question in my build thread but might as well ask here too.

Thinking of switching from EFR 6258 to EFR 6758. So I can say my Miata is an Indy car (Indy chassis runs twin 6758)

I so want to see Himni's response to calling him out on his shady dealings.

But I suspect his response will be:

The first chart (unlabeled) is far more efficient for a greater part of it's usable area. And it has more usable area total. But where do you expect to be drawing a dissection line through the chart with your engine?

the second turbo makes sense for a twin setup. low boost, high flow, heavy right sloped surge line.
