I kept looking at the picture and I was like that's a wastegate dumbass, but then I was like miata owners are not that dumb (I take that back). After I saw it then I LOL'd, but it's not as bas as I thought. I was expecting a BOV in a intake pipe or an NA car.

lol at: upper rad hose, wg vta (literally), and no ******* air filter on the turbo inlet. What is the inlet jammed against, clutch or speedo cable or something?

Anyone have a pic of a well executed one of these things?

I would assume this is mid build, but it doesn't change the fact that he fails.

here's what's really annoying. That manifold is 80 bucks brand new!
And they're proven to be very reliable.
Supply and demand I suppose :/

can you explain why that position is "the worst placement ever."

can you explain how it's worse than being bolted to say: the DP?

okay its the worst placement for actually still functioning as a BOV.

The issue being that its 2 inches from the ground and has likely sucked up all sorts of random things, as BOVs will occasionally draw air in.

That combined with the collapsed upper radiator hose, the opened wastegate vent, and the POS downpipe just make it more hilarious.

also, he used to have a del sol with an integra front end on it

I didn't even notice it was one of Honda's SOHC monsters. I guess the D15. What's sad is that 1.5L makes as much power as BP's in the NA's. That's Honda for you.

At least cylinder number 4 won't be overboosting.
