Thanks to all who made it out and to those of you who said were coming and didn't. Unfortunately, I know a bunch of folk just didn't have their car together or something broken (go figure) so sounds like some who were there and others who couldn't make it are looking to do another day in the fall. I'm thinking late September/early October so don't say you weren't warned. Get your crap together peeps.
hm, I leave for school at the end of august

Because we only had 6 cars dyno before you guys so 8 total by the end. At least 3-5 people (last minute, meaning today) and even more with a little more advanced warning bailed for one reason or another. If everyone who said they were coming to dyno did, we probably would have been there until 2-3pm like prior years, but I guess the little sprinkles scared peeps away.

Strange trip:

I destroyed a tire and rim in a manhattan pothole (it was the water you know) , went back home to switch wheels.

Got this missfire on the dyno in the 6-7k range. What is it?

On the way back up the turnpike, I get passed by a 20 foot boat doing over 85!

It defantaly sounded like spark blow out, when was the last time you changed plugs? Try lowering the gap. I averaged around 85 mph both ways, was awesome.

So needless to say I was a little dissapointed at the way my car performed, but oh well. I had a great time meeting people face to face and talking miatas and learning more MS related stuff. Maybe this question should be destined for a different post, but I made like 208.9hp at 12 psi. I currently have calibration issues, which I need the right Easytherm values for. If I iron out my issues, setup a better tune, and change my current midpipe (stock with no cat) to a 2.5" no cat no resonator; do you guys think 220 would be possible on my turbo (SR20) without changing the boost? My exhaust is currently as follows, FM Turbine outlet, FM 2.5" SS DP, stock midpipe with no cat, Racing beat dual outlet muffler.

I will trade you my 1.6 rear end, which doesn't leak, for your leaking 1.8 rear end. I think it's a fair deal.

That said, I'd say you have a really, really awesome HP curve. It defines linearity. If only I could bend mine upward rather than leveling off at 5000 RPM.



Anybody got more photos? I'm an idiot who forgot a camera, so I'm relying on you guys.
