Congrats. I'm looking forward to spanking a friends stock 94 5.0 auto convertable in the spring. I know I will destroy him, but he thinks that there is no way a 1.6l Miata can beat a 5.0

It says in the video description you were only running 7psi. Why didn't you turn it up? Vid still isn't done finalizing I guess

Lol yes I do. I bought the car that way. I offered him a real race on the track to win his money back in two weeks. He said he would if he gets good tires. By then I will have an intercooler and be running 9-10 psi and I'll make some more money lol. :^D

Another nice thing about a turbo car...you don't have to have sand bags to sandbag.

You can hear when someone doesn't have their foot all the way down...but you can't hear the difference between full throttle with MBC at 7psi vs 10psi.

Nice win, it will only keep getting better with every mod.

Because bell engineering sent me the wrong part, again. They sent me a non adjustable 7psi actuator.
