Default 10psi yay!!!

Not that you all give a ****, but i got my MBC and it was the first time i had driven miata with that much boost. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Too much fun. I'm still giggling. I know it is nothing that hasn't been done 100 times here. Just thought i would share.

I boost to 10psi... But I hit 110% duty cycles at 4750rpms and short shift at ~4,000rpms.

I have a feeling my reaction is going to be similar to yours tomorrow when my injectors come.

I know the feeling. My limiter is set @ 6500 so I don't go over 85%. Can't wait to install my 750s. I'll have to clean the change out of the couch so I can get the JB Perf board.

Seriously. Even at 15psi, I was still yawning. Sucks getting used to "power" way too quickly

+1

This (15psi) is where I've been for 3 weeks and it seems like forever to get to 120kph. I also have a factory 2" cat and exh so spool is

OP I know the fist time I was at that level it was really fun. If you can't get enough of the 'just upped the boost feeling', know that it tends to get expensive the longer you keep the car/ habit.
