Yeah, it's always better to have your car on the dyno when she isnt around. She doesnt like it when she gets knocked down another rung on the horsepower ladder. Other than the aforementioned power steering issue, the car is running and driving nicely. I put a few miles on it last week putting up and down the road in front of the shop testing a couple things. Should have it sorted and on the road soon.

Figured since it's been several months since I was behind the wheel of a Miata (and the last time I nearly (a) killed myself and (b) totalled Corky's car), we'd start off at a lower boost setting to (a) reacquiant myself with the car and (b) shake a few of the gremlins loose.

Attached is this week's results:

What, they didn't want to start you off in my bucket of bolts there at 20 PSI to get some seat time?

Mark -

The sad thing is that your car was already sitting when I brought mine in.

However, once the boys get done installing the NOS and Corky gives a thumbs up, if you're willing I might consider finding a straight, flat piece of road and seeing if your back tires will melt...
