I don't know a goddamn thing -
But it seems reasonable to just calculate the difference in rear end ratios as a percentage (3.9/4.1) and apply that to the RPM. 3.9 is 95% of 4.1, right? Multiply that by 7k rpm = 6658. That's a drop of 342. Trans gears stay the same so they have zero impact. Linear = easy.

And for pricing questions, maybe try http://www.planetmiata.com/

actually to be completely honest i dont say **** at the track, i have this race car strictly as a family hobby, i love racing cars and this is my latest setup, i had a 93 probe gt with a 75 shot of nitrous and a **** load of other things, it weighed next to nothing, i ended up droping in a klze into it, do some cam work made 275 with the nitrous at the wheels

BTW, some of the sacred forum info from dated posts aren't exactly current anymore so it doesn't hurt to ask some of the same questions. I used to be sensitive to reading the same questions on other forums, but it's the nature of it. I got over it. A reply like this one is just is brilliant. Feel proud.
Sorry, this ain't M.net bitch. You want everyone singing kumbya, go there! And yes, retards welcome at M.Net

You do not want to **** me off. Do not let it happen again.
Really, if Hustler is ******* you, that speaks volumes.... We used to call Hustler, Timmmmyyyyy! Now, I think we have a new Timmmmyyyyy, and it's 1fastmiata.

Dude this is so ******* simple it is retarded. If you have enough time to make 100 posts in a month you have enough time to read the forum. If you don't want to read the forum the GTFO. We do not mind helping people but god damn people have to help themselves a little as well. This is simple **** if you have had a miata since 91 and do not know this **** then you must not do much work on it yourself becouse your research is directly proportional to the amount of effort you will need to put in to the project. +1 for ban on this wine and cheese check book racer. Leebo 90+% of the info in the dated posts is fuly accurate, even if otherways have come about, in recent years the old ways still work quite fine.

No i havent I have ahd it for 2 years, and for all 2 years after every race i have to do something to my turbo. i have installed a link ecu, i am now boosting 18psi instead of 6psi, installed larger injectors, larger intercooler, o-ringed the head, gutted(not done yet) the interior, and have been trying to fix my cooling problem. this forum has givin me info on how to cool down my car (thank you paul!), has givin me info that i need to buy a godspeed rad and slimline fans that pull 1600 cfm+ each, i should probably buy or modify a hood because apperantly my raised hood is being conter-productive, i need to throw away my link ecu and buy a megasquirt..

the reason why i have 100 posts is because they are either all within an hour, or i turn on my computer, find that someone has replied to my thread, and i go to that thread answer them, wait a little to see if anyone responds and then i shut off the computer, while im waiting I USE THE SEARCH BUTTON AND READ WHAT I CAN, so STOP telling me i dont, because i do and i have learned alot by using it and HAVE NOT STARTED A NEW THREAD BECAUSE OF IT!!!!!!
