Default Old Skool Let's make fun of [email protected] thread..





what a yo-yo.




1600-1700* intake temps with a turbocharger....ROFL. (3:30 to 3:50)

so much misinformation...granted the video was from 2007, before he read all of Joe's posts and actually learned.

That's one goofy video.

An engineer who likes lots of gauges even if the peak boost was way over the limit of his boost gauge. So when fuel evaporates, it magically disappears, right? It's like bewitched when she wiggles her nose, twinkletwinkle, poof gone. I wished he went into some science regarding the stock exhaust not being a restriction. He truly has rewritten the book on boost.

Turbos get such a bad name because of this kind of misinformation. I couldn't listen to the whole thing. Did he start talking about how there is "no lag" with a supercharger vs a turbo?

THOUSANDS of DOLLARS to up the boost on a turbo? I am sure a MBC is less than that pulley he is selling.

damn...I am trying to get it down below my ambient +20 while under full boost. In my mind I thought it was still too warm.

IATs go down due to adding more fuel???//!!!???

EDIT: Nm, forget these have another injector upstream.

What a fucktard. I had to stop watching at that point.

"we can keep an eye on what the air/fuels are doing..."

He didn't even say ratio, and he's an engineer.

I'm pretty sure the last time I took a reading off of my turbine it was less than he claims my intake temps are.

How ******* awesome it would be if I rolled up next to them in the Machine during this video shoot. Hell, even my Daily would slay that dog.

Dumb Question.

Are the temperatures produced by the large eaton blowers that they slap on v8s less than whats produced by the mp62 he uses in the kit?

probably not. superchargers are inefficient and produce more heat per psi than turbos in most cases. IIRC, the m45 would produce something like 18*F per psi.

oh my god what a ***. i like he shows-off the car in the same gears that I have severe traction difficulties with 2+" more tire, lol.

If he's making 225whp, he's only making 160wtq or so.

Am I the only one here who thinks Mazda did NOT spend thousands or even hundreds of hours tuning the stock miata? I'm a dumbass fucktard, and the first time I tuned my car I did it in 2-hours.
