Default Rode in a ******* fast Miata with a Devils Own kit

I caught a ride in this badboy at 15 psi the other night. http://www.flipsidecustoms.com/Galle...nPinaMiata.htm
Very impressive to say the least. The car is a handfull in gears 1-3. Brandon also told me that a few days back he was driving around and logging and all of a sudden the car was holy **** fast. He made a few more pulls then managed to look at the boost gauge.....22 psi!!!! He had blown the wastegate signal line off!!!. He went back later and pulled his logs and found that he had ZERO knock. Pretty ******* bad ***.

M3 nozzle with just water. The guy who painted the car is hands down one of the best I have ever seen. The finish is flawless.

I also installed a kit on Rob at Flipsides Miata the other night. He is rocking a modified Ebay 16g kit running 12 psi pulling 0 timing. The car is an absolute beast for under $1500. I bet he hits 275 whp when we turn it up:gay:
He went with the Ebay kit since the car is gonna be for sale soon.

The ebay kit is a ******* hunk of ****. The manifold and turbo are the only thing s he didn't modify to fit. I built new oil lines for it.

For my car?
Will be a T4 60-1 with a .69 turbine housing and a P trim turbine wheel. Good for over 500 whp but I will be making around 300 whp at 10 psi and 400+ at 20. My car weighs in at around 2700 lbs. Its also nice being able to hit 72 MPH in 2nd gear and having enough to run up to 165.

Cool, I saw him at the drift event in Monroe yesterday, he is freaking good! He was one of the best and most consistent drivers out there! Tell him to go to roadsterdrift.com for me please.

that is the whole kit in my eyes duh. that other stuff is just extra. I only bought the manifolds and a 16g and considered it a kit to me in a way. there is no way i will ever run a rubber drain line for sure.
