If that's a hack then everything I have ever done is polished manure with a bow on it. Awesome work.
most people run an open waste gate dump, mine is ran back to the downpipe

Holy ****. Good stuff man! For sure one of, if not the most bad *** Miata build I have ever seen. Love finally seeing the results, and I'm sure you are loving experiencing the results of your labor. That curve on the dyno is nice! Lots of usable range there.
