Default Results after its first day at the track.

Its been almost 6 months since i put my little 1.8 94 miata back together since the cylinder head was cracked internally and spiraled to a oem engine overhaul with fm2 turbo kit and recently getting mspnp.

She did great but i would notice that after every run i would come back and my lifters would be noisy till i held the rpms at 2k and would the noise would calm down.. its a new oil pump but now i'm worried that im starving oil at high rpms. so i have considered putting a baffle in the oil pan if thats my problem or switch over to Solid lifters..

Any thoughts would be great thanks.

Yes. Or build your own.

You're putting a lot of pressure (no pun intended) on the stock oil system with a turbo, just on the street. And then you're tracking it. If you had a oil temperature gauge you wouldn't be asking us, you'd already have bought one.
