I have a few different cars prepayed. We should have at least 10 people locked in. I need to double check with Bob.

Adam Jabaay might bring his red ef out for funsies...

Hey, how'd it go? Any pics/videos? Sorry I couldn't make it, I had a scheduling conflict. Fuelfed had their annual event called "THE FINAL DRIVE".

Who came out on top for horse power?
Cheers,

-Jeff

The event went very well. We had 18 cars! Not all miatas, but still very successful. I think I was the second highest at 194hp and 197tq @ 11psi and the dyno reads 10% low. One other guy had a white NA from Gurnee had a FM2 setup pretty much with a MS and made like 230ish hp. We had an ongoing battle between 4-5 miatas for 100ish hp.

There's quite a few pics on Facebook. I'll see if I can post some shortly.

I'm upset I didn't get my car on the dyno... I am also upset my car hasn't been on the road in a month or more.

Further, I am upset that I got my emissions testing letter in the mail Saturday with a due date of February when I am sure the car will still be in storage...

All that aside, it was great seeing everyone at the dyno day. I wish I could have stayed the full day. I will definately budget for a full day next time. Is this something we plan on doing only yearly or will we do a spring event as well?

I matched Phil at 194 HP but only had 179 torque. Not bad considering I'm running the factory exhaust!

And just in case you wondered what a silent exhaust dyno pull sounds like.

Awesome *** day. Met a ton of new people and got super inspired. I feel like we should do a monthly meet similar to KINOD. Let's do it Phil!

Some girl called my car cute while on the dyno. I was like WTF it's not a damn miata women!

Raise your hands bitches, how many of you crapped yourself when ignition cut kicked in on the first pull?

I was ready for it. But then again, I was also the one who discovered that it does that.
