Default Dyon'ed our 99 today

We took our new (to us) 99 Miata over to Cory of Wicked HP for a Dyno today. We also wanted him to inspect the car for safety since Sue and I know very little about turbo's. Everything looked good and we have 291 hp to the rear wheels in 4th gear at 105 MPH. Next weekend we'll be running the 3.2 mile course at Spring Mountain Raceway in Purhump, Nv.

I'm sorry that i can't tell you much about our turbo. I've ordered some books and for right now I'm depending on what my friends are telling me. Since my wife is the driver I'm mainly concerned with just how safe and how well the car was put together. I'm pleased with the workmanship and I'm installing fresh rotors and Hawk pads this week. Seats are installed correctly and the harnesses are fresh in in date. I've numbered the car with Sue's favorite number as was all of her race cars and it looks like were going racing next weekend. After reading some of the TurboMiata posts I am concerned with the car overheating on the 3.2 mile course, but my dyno guy said it should be fine. I guess we'll find out soon enough. I'm adding some pics I took yesterday in the garage.

A/R does not dictate the turbine size. When did you die and become turbo "god"? Did your mechanic tell you that little zinger?

A T3 .48 a/r turbine housing is equivalent, if not greater, than a .63 T25 A/R. Do the math.

Furthermore, the turbine itself is physically much larger than your rinky-dink 2860 turbine. (63.5mm vs your baby pacifier 53.8mm)

Hell, I even have a larger turbine than you on my stock 1.6L, tough guy. His turbo is more or less a GT3076. I doubt there is a need for a .63 A/R housing on a turbine that large and motor this small.

I also doubt he posted for 3 years about how much of a n00b he was before he just went and made it happen.

Nice numbers!
