They heat wrapped the header so it's likely pushing 90hp! That's if they can keep those carbs tuned together OK.

I'm in the same boat, but I have a little more work left. I want to get my car running!!!

I'm sure we could get some guys together to have some fun. I couldn't figure out how to word that, but I meant it in the least gay way.

I keep looking at that picture and scratching my head. While I honestly know very little about how factory OBD-I miata ECUs function but I'm having a very hard time believing that car runs for **** in any way.

No vacuum brake booster
No Real vacuum sources I can see period
No O2 sensor
No Injectors
No Water temp sensor
No AFM

It has me wondering how big of a **** the PCM takes everytime that thing is started. I was of the assumption that silly little things like, Ignition timing had corrolation to Intake Air temp, Coolant Temp, Throttle position, air flow? With all that missing wouldn't it just be in 'limp' mode?
