I boosted it in Jan of 08. Running between 14.5-18.5 PSI of boost. At hi boost it had 267 whp and 257 wftlbs. At low, I dont know. It still hauled *** though.
Went through 2 trans in 1 season. SO I typically ran low boost because of that.
I was at low boost when the engine ****.
All stock miata parts. GTR block and pistons, stock miata rods,bearing, bolts..

All in All, I think it held up well for the beating it took..

Mine was professionally assmbled by a machinist here in town with a serious brag book.

It was my fault for funding all stock hardware

I was poor. Now I am more poor LOL!!

Husler, that pic is sweet though.. It just looks like its ready to take an *** kicking..
