Default Never introduced myself.

Hey, Live in Georgia. I have been lurking quite a bit and purchasing parts. So I finally finished up my turbo setup. Turbonetics super60, Tial 38mm Waste gate, Greddy TypeS and MS01. Right now Its at about 6 PSI, but will be headed to the Dyno in a week for a full tune and will have some 460cc injectors put in while its there.

Welcome!

Clean looking setup. Is that a ETD manifold? How do you like the super 60?

Not completely sure of the origins of the manifold, I picked it up used from a local guy on the cheap. The super60 is amazing for its size it spools super quick. I haven't had a chance to do a full throttle pull but at 1/2 throttle I am at full boost around 3200-3400 RPMs. when I set out on this journey I was looking for about 300 to the ground but to be completely honest at 6 psi this car is pretty scary. Considering the car will be used for track days and the occasional time attack session I am quite happy where its at till I have a chance to get used to a go kart on steroids.

Welcome. Why waiting until dyno to install injectors? What EMS?

Mostly just lack of time, and the fact I am purchasing them from the guy tuning my car. I am running a Megasquirt MS01.

As long as you're not being charged dyno time during the install.

I have a killer hook up at a few local shops that have Dynos, and the guy tuning it and that built my turbo setup is an old friend that just opened a shop just out side of Chattanooga Tn. So basically I will be covering probably Lunch and the beer for the day we tune as payment for Dyno use, LOL.

I love that part.
A buddy of mine bought a '90 5.0 off his brother and he said he wanted to build a motor for 500hp. I said "you wouldn't even know what to do with that kind of power, you don't even know what that kind of power feels like."
I took him for a ride after I put my MBC on and my 460's, but I was still running MS-1 parallel. He was like "holy **** this thing flies, you gotta be making like 400 horsepower". I laughed and said, "try about 209 to the wheels, dyno proven."
He wouldn't believe me. I showed him my dyno sheet, and he thought I photoshopped it.
I'd estimate that I'm making about 220-240 whp now? That being said, I know how fast my car is, but I can't even imagine how Miata's that lay down over 350whp feel.

Anyway, WELCOME!
