but you see my point now you say maybe oil starvation + spike. I just find it hard to believe that 1 spike 12lbs on that turbo would cause that damage with out other causes. Could it be a anomaly yes, but I doubt it.

personally after the first like ouw ah i have a turbo miata attitude i had the first 2 months i had the car. after that i always just thought the turbo would be crap! granted, ill sell my exhaust manifold, downpipe, intake, intercooler, intercooler down piping (depending on na/nb buyer) and possibly my stock ecu/injectors (i suppose the ecu would work for a 94-97 car) once i get back to the states. because for a cheap aftermarket kit, its not bad. i believe you can get a stock turbo for about $300 with less than 20k miles.

and i should clarify, this wasnt just a quick spike. it held the boost as long as i had my foot on the gas which wasnt very long as i let off and was going to let the turbo re spool.

hmm, heres something im just thinking up that should be addressed and i havent been given any clear answers on it yet. but im at 6000 feet above sea level. pushing up to 12 lbs takes a lot more work up here than it does at sea level. aka faster spinning turbo.

I spent 6 months in Santa Fe. The first time i did dead lifts, I blacked out. It sucked.


Do you ever roll out to the Gila forest and do mountain runs? I'd love to take my miata out there.

I'm seriously considering moving back there. I'd really like to put my miata together, the drive out to santa fe and waste a week, while driving through a bunch of twisties.

Man, I really might move back there and take a job with the state. Working for NMDPS has a few benefits.

heh well what do you think this thread is all about? clearly i didnt want to hear input if i put it on miata.net. maybe i should do a slideshow and put it on streetfire and see what i get next!? but yeah anyway, youre one of the very few actually opposing the t25. funny thing is, people have been opposing it even before i stated a power goal. hmm... theres a MSM running a FMII kit at 13lbs generating 280hp at the wheels. not really a stretch considering the rebuild of the stock ihi had a guy up at ~275hp at something like 15lbs of boost.

and dont take my tone as too attacking, i dont mean it to be. i guess its just how i write online
