Funny you ask, I just had it out today. I took the wife out to dinner in it and scared the hell out of her in the process. She hates the miata.

It's still running great, and the exhaust made a huge difference. I'm pretty happy with the power output at 15psi, and I think the next mods will be wheels and tires, followed by a decent suspension setup. I plan on dyno'ing it soon and taking it to the dragstrip in the spring.

Here's the clutch I should have bought when I started this build.

FM stage 2

The updated bearing looks pretty badass. I'm going to install it this Thursday at work.


I'm also starting work on converting the fuel system to return style so I can run an afpr and up the boost.

More pics come Sunday.

Did you ever dyno this thing?
There is a lack of 2854 dynos on the interwebz.

On that note, I also really need to dyno mine, only, first i need to get the happy meal in there. Nice clutch btw

Dyno/strip results now! Or even just a nice 3rd/4th gear log so we can plug it into virtual dyno.

Can't wait to use my stage 2. I loved my stage 1 so much i couldn't resist going with the two. Plus the updated bearing is a good feature.


Did you by chance happen to run a blue GSXr? Guy who owns the blue smurf i'm building said he got assraped by a silver NB while he was on his bike a while back.

I doubt it since the car runs 14's. I've done some 80-100ish rolls with 600's and they usually pull ahead. But, hopefully not for much longer.
