Default my ebay turbo'd miata video

mods are on my vbgarage. its at 13psi of boost on 91 octane. i just stopped at 75ish because it was as fast as i wanted to take it. its the first video i ever made of it, just thought i'd show how the ebay kit is working. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gORHuvfLloM

oh yeah i did. it was nursed out of the whole. i didnt really floor it until i was started in 1st. i wanted to check to see if it was clear before spinning the tires and such. according to gtech i've pulled 5.4secs on less mods.

Vid looks good to me. Sucks on the diff turning itself to salad, but at least you'll be able to launch it. Also, it did have 172K on it, so not bad eh.

Oh, do a before and after with the new diff. Sweet.

yeah, i'm not really complaining. i know if the car was making stock power that thing would probably never break. it went out in good fashion... getting sideways in 2nd. hopefully i can get my 1.8 carrier, rx7 lsd, frankendiff done tomorrow. since the miata is my only car. i'll try to snap some pics if i get a chance to. and i'll get some pics of my diff metal salad with gear oil dressing. we'll see what happens, at least my clutch and transmission are holding.
