Meh supras...i raced my buddies TT supra last year i was at 20lbs but not full throttle and i kept with him then i started back firing cause i wasnt tuned...but one time i pulled on him and he started making excuses that his intercooler piping came off or a cupling. I will get a video this year. Very tempted on buying some stickys for the track but im scared of snapping an axle. And in need of a 6 speed swap soon but no one around here has 6 speeds :(

You would be surprised. With the turbo tech now available for under 2K (great efficency and response even on crappy setups) and affordable forged parts all over, you see a lot of oddball high boost stuff nowadays in some areas. Shoot even the better sections of the Mustang community are commonly running 10-15 psig now, with plenty in the 20 range. Termie guys are pretty much all running high teens boost now, with a lot of the them and the Lightning guys (who are crazier and blow up more stuff than even the DSMers) running into the high 20s. One other group that will probably run really high comp ratios are the Genesis guys. Its basically got a weak version of the 4B11 in there

I am far from a noob when it comes to turbocharging, and my miata is not the 1st or even the 5th turbo car I've owned, so I'm aware of all the cool new **** out there nowadays.

My point remains: there are VERY FEW miata's running over 15psi on a larger turbo. Even fewer running over 20. Its just not a huge turbo/big boost type of car. That's why I'm surprised.


Oh and to the other guy trashing supra's: race a 600whp (very common power level to a modded one) to 140mph and come back and say that again. After 100mph he will absolutely sodomize you

I'm all for big power miata's. Hell I'm planning on going big myself, but lets not get carried away and start badmouthing other cars that are highway monsters just yet.
