I should have asked more clearly - did you ever drive the Miata with a turbo and without the AFM? I ask because the intake suck is pretty damn loud without the AFM..

My miata has a pretty loud suck, but I think the subies might be a hair louder.

you need to retune the car with the new intake do a stage 1 chip makes the car much more fun to drive. open source ecu is great. i know a guy in charlotte nc that tuns these things and for a fee hell send u a tune which u just flash. intakes are useless on these since the turbulance created by stock intake makes the car run much better. buy a front mount from ssautochrome for 299 its a good deal. but u are still gay for selling the miata lol

You dont "chip" the ecu. You simply plug in a cable into the obd2 port and "flash" the rom. The subaru ecu is a wonderful ******* thing: its a ems in itself. Tuning it costs the price of a cable. I have a ton of maps I can send him as well

Front mount on anything smaller than a 30r is ******* USELESS and stupid IMHO...

Intakes ARE useless and most of the time actually TAKE AWAY a few hp. Atmospheric blow off valves are even worse.


*edit: I just realised I came off as an *******. Didnt mean to, so I apologize
