That's like saying I can punish my kids without beating them...Its impossible. Hahaha

(Too be perfectly clear I do not have kids nor do I support physical punishent)

Honestly PinaColada, if your making close to 300hp on a basiclly stock 1.6 and 17psi on a smaller turbo, I must be off of my guesstimate of my car making 300hp.

I have a bigger motor, run the same psi (on a bigger turbo so more cfm), run a fair amount of timing, and can induce wheel spin at 60mph with a roll-on.

I honestly now more than ever believe you are not making the power I am. Further more like Jay mentioned, I drive my car A LOT harder than most people and it as extensive tracks days on it so things do wear down when you use the hard.

So while its all fine and dandy you've never broken your tranny and say your has been "rock solid" (I should add mine was perfect up until that low boost roll on), but how often did you take it too the drag strip an do clutch dumps in boost? Or how many track days does it have on it?

Like I said if you sunday drive it obivously it will last, just like people running boost on stock 6" rearends (an I broke 2 of them on stock 1.8 power :P )

I've made up my mind and I'm gonna roll with my spare tranny for the next month or so (winter is coming anyway) then figure out a turbo two and 3.63 gears this winter.

Thanks anyways man.

I could sit here and tell you what my cars has but that would just make you feel sad that i have a cooler car than you.

lets see.... my car is a 1990 (4 of 89) one of the first 300 in the US. So already its cooler than yours.
So your saying the first couple of years were the best? look man if I had my choice in another miata it would be a 94+ strickly for the better stock UPGRADES.......

Why does every thread turn into a pissing match?!?

From what you stated (dc) roll with your stock tranny and sprinkle some empathy on it, and pray it lasts until you can afford the best known solution...6 speed and lower gearing. Till then, good luck.
