Where are these clowns all coming from? Seriously...

I'm getting old, just like Brain.

Step 1: Buy 444 horses. And two quarter-horses.
Step 2: put them in an extremely large bus-like vehicle with inclined treadmills or hampster wheels for each horse
Step 3: Run all the treadmills/hampster wheels to a centralized flywheel. Drive wheels of bus-like vehicle from flywheel. Transmission for changing the gearing ratios is optional.
Step 4: Tie a large rope from the rear axle of the extremely large bus-like vehicle to a part of the engine in a miata, such as the intake crossover tube, close hood on miata.

Calculating for 10% drivetrain loss, your miata now produces 400.05 wheel horsepower without burning gasoline!!!

To be fair, I'm tempted to forego my BEGi-S purchase and go with the taco kit because I think it would be spectacular to have a turbo miata "Powered by ILOVETACOTACO". I could get some epic vinyl, maybe a sponsorship... hmm...

Meh, just buy the Begi-s and get ilovetacotaco and mexican flag decals made to troll everybody into believing that is what you have.

Then post nitrodann's dyno plots as your own.

I'm not sure if that or the displacement going down is funnier.

I plan on making 1000whp in my 3-cyl Geo Metro. I have all the parts, only cost me twenty bucks.

I actually do have one quarterhorse in my V8 Miata. Tuner of choice for 5.0's Just sayin.

That said I'm no where near 889whp. Maybe I should add another?
