Default Good and Bad News

Well I took my car tonight to tune for a drag event in Shreveport. The good news is that my car made more torque than any other Miata ive herd of. It made 500 ft tq. The bad news is that I dont know how much hp the car made because I pushed the head gasket on the same pull before my peak rpm to make power. We are guessing that it would have made about 530 at that boost level. I am going to have to have my block ring bored for some pressed in brass head gaskets. It never ends....

That's ridiculous man. Crazy you put that to the ground.
First miata i've heard of needing pressed in brass HGs. I take it the new fuel system is working good though?

Yes it works great. My best friend make 735 hp on E-85 in his civic and we built identical fuel systems. So im sure that this system will be plenty for my car.
