im with him, buy a dif, a stock one if u have to, just the dif, have it shipped to ur door " over night parts from jaaapaaan"
then swap it, and get ur *** on the dyno

or look around in ur area, and find one like that, buy it quick, then swap it fast,
like y8 said, 2 hour job, then come and hang out,

i want to see as many turbo miatas as i can

Great idea Matt!

My estimate: same psi=285rwhp, very little loss below 6k "could be due to dyno error", horrible off-idle driveability.

If the low throttle driveability sucks I'd like to see what the OEM throttle body would do on that manifold. But whatever.

I hope I'm wrong cause that manifold looks easy to make and would be an easy upgrade.

why not do what everyone else does. download the MSPNP9093 map, and modify it for your injectors and go from there....hell it's what i ended up doing last weekend to get mine running.

Axle nuts were easy to get off. If I had it to do over, I'd remove the hub and find a big press to press the axles out.

What're you doing pulling the axles out of the hubs? Just pop em out of the diff with a pry bar!

I did, but are you suggesting just selling the axles with the hubs still attached? I need to move the car around before I get the CTS diff and custom axles.

FWIW, I made a very efficient remover with long bolts and an inch thick chunk of steel plate.

Put four holes in the plate the same as the bolt pattern of the wheel studs.

Knock out two wheel studs and put the long bolts in their place, through the plate and tighten the plate toward the axle with a couple of nuts. If it doesn't move, add two bolts, repeat.

I wouldn't say everything, but I have a feeling it's your car since we plugged my working/running MS + ecu into your car and it still didn't work.
