Haha, Please dont drag me into this =)

FWIW, in the video of me and hustler at HHR, part of the reason he pulled so much on the straights was because i had to check up mid corner and wait on the gas to avoid running into the back of him.

That said there is no way i'm making near the power hustler is.

Also according to my calculations a 4 gph nozzle @ 200psi is closer to 5.6 gph.

Havent dynoed the car in a long time, a year ago it made 200hp on a mustang dyno running a few psi less boost. keeping the car in texas and working in louisana means i miss alot of the local dyno days.

I'm not saying I have the best setup in the world but I like it. i've made my changes to the kit to improve reliability on track and feel i have been reasonably successful in doing so.

Given the current crop of power adders available today i may have gone a different route. After driving around some heavy v8 cars around the track, I can only imagine what one in a miata would be like.

Hey guys, arguing is not allowed in there!

LOL at these guys pushing PD blowers and trying to either make turbos look bad or hide behind forum rules.

The 11psi and 16 psi dynos are more entertaining.

Get a cold side supercharger, E-cool, and be able to pull out in 3rd gear and beat big turbo cars from 40 MPH 5th gear rolls all while having underhood temps colder than your mommas oatmeal.
Im serious. E-Fool FTW

Edit, I think i just pissed savington off. LOL

My '01 Miata has a near flat torque curve from 2,000 to 7,000 rpm, show me any turbocharged car that has a 5,000 rpm wide powerband. All of the dyno sheets on here of supercharged cars show a torque curve nearly identical to the stock motor. Similar peak horsepower to a similarly boosted turbo (psi of boost) , with twice as wide a power band

Not only does the Miata have a great stock powerband from 2k-7k, right? but also, diesel turbo engines are one hundred percent comparable to gasoline turbos. As we all know. Of course.

yes.
