Default got bored, added boost

yea, so i was like hmm, my car is ok, butttt,, it could be better
i dropped in a hallman boost controller (hallman pro rx kit)
i got it used for 20 dollars its around 100 with shipping on the hallman site
friend of mine didnt know what it was worth, so i threw him a low ball and he bit

then i bought some green top supra injectors

when i got everything in hand, i cleaned it all up
and threw them in today

after fiddling with the boost controller, i have a stable 10psi with 11.5 to 12.1 a/f

the thing moves like a bat out of hell, i mean, theres no words for it
200hp in a miata is effin nuts

rear end dips, front end lifts, and ur off

i love it, i now need a to look for a torsen, im sure this rear end wont last
along with a new bottom end so i can build it,
and a hard top, and some lowering springs, and some, well, u guys know, the list just never ends

If you think 10 psi is fast,you should try 15 psi.

You might get an open 1.8 driveline and swap it now why you can still sell your 1.6 driveline.

Just dont floor it in 1st in a parking garage with that sticky concrete. Thats how I blew mine.

Dont do what I did, sell your 1.6l driveline while its worth something. I got my 1.8l open swap for $400, its not expensive for the opens.

Besides the price, the Torsen is a TORque SENsing (limited-slip) diff.

The 1.8 open is a good starter if you can't splurge for the Torsen, at least you wouldn't need to worry about blowing your diff.

Price wise or how they function? Price wise is about $500, function wise the torsen is a type of limited slip diff, an open is just that, open. AkA one tire fire...
