Default Noob with slow S/C from VA/TN

Noob here, been a member for a year or so. Bought my first miata in 2007, it was a 92 sunburst, sold it because I also had 3 motorcycles at the time and needed the funds.

Bought this one in the winter of 2011, 1995 PEP package. Then went with a slow M45 JRSC, ~7psi, 01-05 injectors, 5° retard on the intake cam, powercard and olderguy O2 clamp, jackson BTC. Works for now hopefully MSPNP this year. Other stuff: Vmaxx track pack, torsen LSD, urethane diff mounts, mazda comp. engine mounts, FM sways, Custom cowl intake, Cobalt full exhaust, Riceland header, Hard Dog Sport, Powerstop rotors/pads, Bride Digo seats (waiting for me to fab up some brackets), Chapparral S15's with 195/50 R1Rs, 13mm miatacage spacers, ART extended studs.

Crappy cell phone pics to follow:

The car looks great. I wouldn't have ever picked those wheels, but I'm really feeling them on the car. Any idea what kind of power you're making?

I have a love/hate relationship with the wheels, they're heavy and at 15x7 they're more narrow than I'd like but they're the closest panasport replica and fit the vintage look I'm going for with the car.

I had a time scheduled at a Dyno Day 3 weekends ago but they got backed up and I didn't have all day to wait around. I'm hoping to get it on a dyno soon.
