Levnubhin is on base down there, and is running a MS2 i built for him, if you want to see first hand how the MS works.
I honesty would do a 13b swap and boost that if I was going to swap it. I wana see how te 1.8 runs on boost 1st.






And vlad, I hate the ap. I have a hydra 2.6 in my wrx.

And yeah I'd be down to see the affects of the ms system.
I have only looked into the hydra, and that was only for the wrx.
I go to element tuneing in md for all my subie tunes.

I never said anything about an ls or any kind of motor swap.

but if i did i'd definitely want a rotary. I can't quite put my finger on it but there is something really appealing about replacing rotary seals, the great gas mileage, ability to make breakfast burritos on my hood in the parking lot before work, and the extra work and headaches so that i can achieve the same or less power than using my stock motor.

Already have some parts for my turbo.
Exhaust manifold and a td04h I figure that would put me at 225.
Well along with supporting mods.

Can some one gimme some more info on this megasquirt?
Is it basically like a Cobb accessoort?

I kinda like how you format your posts like they are a poem. BUT THEY'RE NOT. DO NOT LIKE. Note that I made about 100 posts in haiku format so you lose.

Cobb accessport = power bandaid for ignorant people who can't or don't want to learn how to tune.

megasquirt = standalone EMS that you have to tune yourself. Yes you can pay for a tune but trust me like any other standalone EMS you will end up having to tune it yourself. I recommend paying for training.

If your fenders and tires aren't getting destroyed with that "stance" then you surely are not pushing the car hard at all. Either that or (what I suspect) you have only like 3 coils of spring remaining and zero suspension travel.

p.s. why you only want 225 hp bro? borg s366 or bust. 400hp+

Faefae has a boosted subie too. It is sweet *** and blown up. And yes, borg s366 is the way to go for a miata. You can get a very efficient 350hp at 35psi.

I don't want 350 in the Miata.
Like I said a calm 225 would be more than enough.

I have no idea why my phone keeps auto correcting the to te.

Still have a few inches left on The coils before they are maxed out.

Come burn it, I'll just get another one and do the same thing.

For real I'm done being bashed for how low my car is.
Who gives a **** about how low it is.
I came to this sight because I was told you guys know exactly what your talking about.
So what better way to learn?
Yes the car is stupid low, yeah I destroyed a diff due to it being low.
thays also because my roads are ****.
But hey, everyone has to start somewhere.

So with that being said, give me the help and knowledge you have of stfu.

Thanks, but no thanks.
I would rather build it myself.
Although I will continue to use any and all info from you guys.
After all, this is not my field of expertise.

I always get a good laugh when the newcomers reach a point where the hazing becomes too much and they start getting butthurt. How many more ******** are going to pull the "I would do a 13b swap" out of their asses. Pass.

Lulz no ones butt Hurt it just gets old when I'm asking for help and all anyone can do is flame flame flame and talk **** over te interwebz get over your self. There's more **** talking here on a miata forum than on va driven or nasioc. It just seems like it's "the cool thing" to do is talk **** over the Internet when all I am going is looking for help.


This is the only miata he has left.
Bu they are rotary guys so all parts would be openly available to me and they know them
Motors inside and out.




Te 2 brother daily cars lol




But as far as doing a swap it prob won't ever happen.
Too much time and money just to have a fake rx7.
I do wana boost the 1.8, just not yet wana make sure I do everything correctly. That's why I am here. Share your knowledge!


Oh I have been reeding up on that ms system I think it's a nice, cheap counterpart to a hydra.
Now I just wana read read read on how exactly it works.
I know I won't have it all down in a week or so.

See here's the problem, you're expecting to be spoon fed and you expect everyone to be here giving you all the information and bowing in front of you... not going to happen. All the information is there, you just gotta look... no, clicking on one link and saying i cant find it help isnt going to do it. You are asking about megasquirt, theres an entire section seen on the main page available for it, you're asking on other **** that's been beaten to death here.

I'm not expecting anything other that to be treaded as a human.
If you wana bow down in front of me, be my guest.
No one had a gun you your head

I asked of the ms was like the Cobb ap.
That's all I asked. Got my answer left it alone.
I have searched multiple places for answers I always get thrown back to this site, that's why I made an account.

Let me see something really quick.

"Our #1 goal is to have an enjoyable, respectful, and most important, active forum environment. "

Yet for the past 24 hours I have had nothing but people talking down to me.
**** talking me, trolling, just being all around dicks.
I understand there a "hazing" in every forum but when all you can do in some
ones thread is talk all the **** you can, it's just rude.


"You will notice there is a fair amount of offtopic chatter on the site so jump right in."

That's exactly what I did.

"Remember, there is no such thing as a "stupid question". Don't be embarrassed to post a question! All members in this forum are here to learn from each others experiences."

Yet as soon as I ask a question I get again, nothing but trolls and **** talkers.
I had a question and I asked it.

"So, enjoy the site, and make sure to introduce yourself in the new members forum. "

So your mad because I don't follow te rules.
I think I followed them pretty well.
And now it lead to this.

I am in no way butt hurt.
If anything I learned a few things from some of the guys willing to help.
