Interesting. Would be nice to see it run. The install was a sad thing though. Why not invest $50 in some aluminium and mount the stuff properly?

Edit: So. Now I saw it running...

Ok a couple of things.

The car sounds like ***, a duck being tortured under the hood?
His video editing skills suck nearly as bad as his engineering.
Interesting that he'd go with a stealth turbo setup, considering the park bench mounted on the trunk.
+1 on the speaker mounts, niiiiiiice
Didn't this yahoo blow up his engine? Auto-tuning spark table? Naw ...

Someone brought up his setup a couple weeks ago. I watched the video and was like wow....this guy is ******* 100% retarded. Then I realized he's about 30mins away from me! When my cars back together I want to find him and do doughnuts around him while he's driving.

Everything about that miata is horrid. I wouldn't want to even stand near that thing I would be so embarrassed.

Holy ****. I know I want to repeat everything that's been said in this thread but that's already been done.

You know what would be cool? Do a remote mount and put your muffler before the turbine, that way you can get that oh so cool turbine sound without sounding like unmuffled ***.

What a retard.. "heheheh.. Nitrous express..."

That dude seriously has the mentality of a 9 year old.. All his stupid little side notes and dumb comments about ****, like someone equally retarded is sitting next to him in agreement. "oh, Yeah, Totally."


Oh, and On a side note.. I dont think that thing is very much quicker, if any at all than my N/A.

- widebands and bigger injectors do not make very interesting sidenotes
- God wants to end that plexiglass panel
- at 15 psi you ought to have a fast car, all you seem to have there is proof of concept
It does
