7. Injectors

That will let you get the max out if the stock turbo. The rest is up to your particular goals in other areas.
What if you had a $1000 budget?

I'd spend it all.

Can't help but notice you have a Corvette as well. I switched over to miatas after buying one to teach my GF how to auto cross. Drove both and had more fun in the Miata. Been hooked on these little buggers ever since.

When I'm in full race trim I'm spending $1750 for a set of tires twice a season. And having my double adjustable konis re-done every other year. These cars are arrive and drive. I don't even require slicks to make it work.

Here is some of my work in the Vette:


Thanks for helping a fellow Vette racer out in his Miata.

He doesn't race his vette. It's a limpdick automatic he uses as a ***** extension to pick up boys. Normally you'd think that "limpdick" and "***** extension" would be mutually exclusive, but if you ever watch gay ****, you'll notice that only one dude has an erection at a time once the show starts, so to speak.

That should tell you which one he is.

Too funny.

Thanks for the help. If I can ever offer you some Corvette racing knowledge I'll be happy to return the favor.

1. One way valve for catch can sump drain
2. AEM intake
3. Exhaust
4. Reflash, RX-8 injectors and 12 psi (only if within driving distance to ChipTorque, otherwise some standalone)

Then just leave it the hell alone and drive the thing hard!

Do you want to assemble it yourself? Or do you want to plug it in and go?

I'd vote plug it in and go. Reverant. You posted in his thread.

Plug it in and go!

In the Corvette the ECU actually learns and adjusts itself based on the way that you drive the car. Not sure how it does this. Do these units have any time of self learning features?
