I thought for sure there was going to be some editing and locking going on.

Ben, you've been the best entertainment all day. I WISH FFS would open that thread at m.net and start posting. 8 PC-PRO's... Beer Cooler... Mars...
Good read for sure.

I managed to invoke "pc-pro" here too:

At this point, invoking pc-pro on m.net is pretty much my favorite passtime...but you have to be sublime to it doesn't get pruned. I highly recommend it.

now these **** are talking about some ******* tube-framed GT3 circuit miata that runs on plutonium with cantilever suspension.

I mean, hell, NHRA pro-stock 50" v8's make 1200hp naturally aspirated, there is no reason your daily driven cadavalier won't cut 1.0 60' times to and from work.

ive always enjoyed the loss of low end torque on automatics, combined with the loss of low end torque with itrbs. mmmmm.

Imagine how much power you'd make with a FFS coldside with a stock ecm and PC-Pro, on an ITB 12:1 compression daily driven, tube-framed GT3 miata.

i was refering more to the fact IRTBs primary purpose is to increase throttle response. an automatic will destroy any gain in response the irtbs gain. not to mention it's a ******* automatic...

im pretty sure the larger inlets lower low-end torque, not smart to do on an automatic. but hey, they are magical and increase HP substantial, best hp/$$ hands down.
