Default Well you bastards had better be right about this....

Because I just opted for the MSPNP with a BEGi-S1.

And I had just paid off the credit card last week! lol.

Now I'm going to go hunt for some RX7 460's.

They are right as long as your expectations are in line.

If you expect to get everything in a box all at once and for everthing to work the first time without modification then you might be expecting too much.

is this going on your daily driver?

No, not my daily driver.

If anything, I'm going into this as the pessimist, so I believe my expectations are realistic. I also don't want y'all to think I am expecting to be spoonfed. Hardly the case.

You know what Trent; I'm willing to bet you're going to be fine. You just chose 2 of the best Miata vendors in the market and I read FoundSoul's post in another thread offering his support. If someone as clueless as me can be happy with a boosted Miata, anyone can!

BTW, which turbo did you pick? FWIW, I don't know anything about the subject but I would suggest 550cc high impedance injectors.

Keep us informed.

The injectors depend on what comes up first. I have WTB threads on rx7club for both.

Oh, and I opted for the GT2560 to give me some room to grow.

Go big or go home. I didn't want to wish I had opted for the bigger turbo down the road.

One quick question Trent: how happy are you with the Tein/FCM bumpstops combo?

Thanks

The FCM's are great. But if I had it all to do over again, I would have chosen a more aggressive spring than the Tein's. They are quite a bit too soft.

However, the ride quality is great with the Tokico's on a medium setting, and the Tein's do lower the car quite a bit.

Congrats on the purchase! If I had it to do again that's the route I would've taken.

I have an FCM/Ground Control/Bilstein combo, and I like. The FCM mounts and stops make a big difference.
