I'm going to trying and hit the dyno at a local shop here this week. If I break 200whp I'll be happy to be honest. The manifold seemed to open to top end a lot though. Plan to hit the strip when it cools down a bit.

As far as a video I have a bit of a treat in the making.

Huh, not sure how I missed this thread the first time around. That parking lot looks very familiar- I believe there's a BW3 just out of frame to the right, and a Moe's to the left?

From where you started, the car looks amazing.

You would be correct sir. How long ago was it you were down here Joe? Did I have my car on the road yet? Plan to ever come visit again?

Are you going to Advanced Race Technology in Sarasota to get Derrick to dyno it?

Sometime in 2009, can't recall exactly the date. I was in North Port for a while, LostSoul invited me up.

I haven't looked at the datalog but watching the computer I peaked about 185kpa and held 175. So realisticly 11psi or so. It was hot as ***** so I'm sure that didn't help.

this is probably the most ambitious Miata build anyone's ever done before. The car originally looked like complete dogshit. I wouldn't have bothered with it, but you really turned it around. Good work.
