Default Throttle wheels?

So who still sells throttle wheels for miatas? I'm looking for one that is variable... less pull at low throttle and then ramping up to full ratio.

Yes sir.

Reason why is because at 15% throttle i'm at 120kPa.

15% throttle is under an inch of pedal travel.

You need to check in incabulator first, changing throttle position is just a band-AIDS.

So what's wrong with getting 4psi at 15% throttle? If you only want boost at WOT, you should have gone with a blower.

in all seriousness, NA miatas had progressive throttle for some configuration.

Looks like this:

I have one, my throttle cable was too long to fit it so I never used it. I heard different theories - that it came on some automatics, 94 models only, etc etc. Mine came from an ebay junkyard "JDM" motor. The block has an oil feed on driver side like 94 blocks, so it's probably a 94.

also I heard you can do EBC and, you know, not have this issue since you can do TPS based boost control.

Well my max boost is 7 psi so...makes the throttle very jumpy.

I had one of those linkages on my '94 engine. I liked it better than the standard THROTTLE WHEEL.
