Default Lurker/owner from North Florida

Hi, my name is Anthony and I own a 1999 Miata Turbo. Bought it about 7-8 months ago for my daily/autocross car. So far I have enjoyed it more than any of my previous cars and I am currently experiencing the snowball effect of adding a turbo to a miata.

Bought the begi shanghai-s kit with MSPNP2 and have since added 3" dp back enthuza ss exhaust and a cxracing diy intercooler.

Right now my injectors are at like 106% Duty cycle at 6700 rpms at 7.5psi so I am definitely in the market for some nice rx8 densos if anyone is selling

Really curious about how much longer my stock clutch is going to last...so far its holding strong!! lol, I don't expect much longer.

Nice car. Post some pics. Look into the popular 1.6 swaps for NB1's.

Welcome.

I was just being facetious. Once again, super clean car/engine bay/interior.

I heard that begi sticker is like -50hp. probably why your clutch still works. Nice car.

Really? that sucks...I put one on either side yesterday

In other news...just ordered some 430cc RX-8 Densos. I'm on a mission...to destroy my clutch!

Very nice looking car. Not a fan of red personally, but the red on tan looks great IMO. Welcome!

Stock type injectors don't increase flow beyond 85-90% duty cycle due to the time it takes them to open and close. They are essentially always open at that point.
