Thumbs down My car is a dogg!

Iv been pretty unhappy with my miata's performance at the 1/4. My set up is in my sig, but ignore the MBC. Im waiting for my Emanage blue to come in. My FASTEST time was 15.4 at 90 mph with open exhaust. I think i need three inch exhaust starting from the down pipe. I know I should at least hit 15 flat with the greddy base kit. Maybe its because im in Guam.

With a crappy tune, a slipping clutch, and an awful 60' I managed to hit a 14.3 @96 mph on my old greddy setup. that was with an emanage blue, open 2.5" exhaust, and at about 12 psi.

15.4 is really not that terrible on a base greddy...look at it this way, why do greddy owners upgrade all their parts? You are faster than a stock miata and only for about $1K, speed costs money, who fast do you want to go? Upgrade your kit with an FMIC, actual fuel management, better DP, bigger exhaust and you will be hittin 13'-14's

You have the stock exhaust, you will never make power. The best thing I ever added was the Turbo Tony DP and 2.5" exhaust. It was like a whole different car.

^ Thats my next plan. I really need an exhaust and a DP (I like tony's). I'm comfortable with mid 14's. I'm not building a race car but I would like my maita to be pretty fast anyways. haha

Thats because your not spinning you tires all the way to the 60ft.
