Until 4000 rpm it's like driving a normal Miata and then it turns into a jet car.

Pretty sure that's what Fae's powerband was. Except out of a shittier motor.

Nothing until 7k, ALLOFIT, Shift.

29psi. We could go as high as 35psi, but we got the power/torque we wanted anyway at 29.

Wow, crazy. Have you got a build thread on the car? I would love to see how you are going to handle the drivetrain at that power.

RX-7 FD gearbox, Supra Mk3 diff, custom axles. Seems to be holding up so far.

I don't think so. Peak torque doesn't occur until well after 5250 rpm, so the tq and hp cross over will be whatever it is at 5250. Peak tq hits at 6762 rpm (386 ftlbs) but at 5250 it looks more like 260ish Nm (~190 ftlbs) and Cv is at 190-200 (~190 hp).
