I do concider myself a good driver with plenty of auto-x, road racing, and drag racing experience. I highly doubt too many people are making more hp than me at 8psi and still being decent for the street. Any *** can mount a gt35 to a miata and make it a dyno queen. Im more into reliability and being able to beat the **** out of my car without thinking twice. Maybe ill turn it up to 20+psi for a dyno run so I can impress losers like you....no probly not. Oh and the GTI thing was a joke.
You've got me beat on the part that your car is tuned, and mine isn't, i'll give you that. Read my thread in DIY-Dynos and Timesheets:

Losers like me are impressed by people making big power on a budget. Losers like me also like to have reliable/streetable engines also, simply because we can't afford to buy a FM motor and build it up all nice and money like.

I just raced my friends 07 Saleen. The N/A ones with like 330 crank. It was a very close race. Went from a 40 roll, cause my tires are pretty bald right now. I slowly pulled and by about 100 I was a little more than a car length ahead. I'm surprised how much top end my Miata has. Just before that the saleen race my friends M3 I believe it is the E46 model and smoked him bad... so I guess I can take a M3 as well.

My first kill. At least the first I could tell was trying... and nothing to really "write home about". BUT: From ~3500 in fifth to ~6000rpm I took a G35 coupe. He was on my *** at the start, I eased into about half throttle and started to pull a gap, then heard him downshift and make the notorious nissan v6 exhaust roar. So I floored it. At the end of the run I was about 7-8 car lengths ahead. He didn't even look at me when I slowed and he passed.

I ran my friend's 04 Lightning the other night from a roll and gave him about 2 or 3 cars and ran him down in about 1/8 mile. Not to bad w/o a solid tune I guess. I sure surprised the hell outta him.
