Or maybe you have to much low-end torque.

I've seen some non-public charts from way back when BW was doing their initial testing, and Soviet's results are not an anomaly - these turbos produce huge low-end torque on our motors.

Soviet's numbers are on a '99 head, too - with a VVT head and a good tune, I think 220wtq at 3000rpm is totally obtainable. That is wacky low-end.

I was going to be eventually shooting for 300 lbft by 4k and holding at that until I ran out of turbine. Looks like that will be possible on this engine, just like BW's turbo calculator shows. And looks like the first tune with the 5 speed saver setup of 200lbft by 3k and holding that till 6.5k then holding 250hp to redline will be easy as pie.

I'm still lurking, waiting to give you my money.
It seems tho FM is highly known for customer service.
How will your's compare? (Maybe some non-TSE opinions as well, but please don't turn into a bash fest)

Also, with the AEM PnP for you turbo kits, Will you be providing a base map for the given setup?

Third question >.>
Does the AEM EMS Have built in 2-step launch control?
Yes because I want to be THAT guy.


Thanks for your time

If anything.. you guys can start R&D on LS1 swap kit

I am very tempted to try and bribe Braineack in to levelling a temporary ban on the next person that bumps this thread that isn't affiliated with Trackspeed Engineering because every time this thread gets bumped and it's not them with an update, I am disappointed.

I'm willing to bet Hustlers virginity that half the nancies in here crying "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY" are completely full of **** and can't afford the turbo itself let alone the whole 4-5k kit

I am the 50%.




But which 50%?!

Hint: I don't have any fabrication skills, don't like to work on cars but do like to drive them and have two excellent AEM tooners near to me that I have good relationships with.

Honestly, the main downside for me is the fact that I have great relationships with a couple of much higher volume shops and can get prices significantly discounted from Trackspeed's retail pricing on a couple of the individual components. 1%er problems?

I've always admired FM's customer service, and we consider them to be the shop to beat in this market. I'm available via email and phone during the week to customers, and will usually answer emails on the weekends as well, and since I'm the one who designed the kit, I can usually get you set straight pretty quickly.

With our kit, you also get the benefit of countless hours of R&D on not only the components in the kit, but also the methodology of the parts selection and the install process. We've been racing turbocharged Miatas for years, and our cars are some of the fastest forced induction Miatas in the world, and the kit you'll get will reflect that level of experience and maturity.

Our basemaps will get you up and running, but you should expect to have the car tuned professionally if you want to get the most out of the system.

The EMS-4 boxes do have launch control capabilities, yes.

We're an V8R dealer so we can provide the necessary parts to make that swap happen

I like this guy. Every response to peoples questions is great and informative.
+1
I rode in a club members turbo miata (13-15psi) and I'm sold for turbo miata build. I'll be waiting for word on your kit, even maybe my car as an R&D just to get it early muahah.

Ofcourse with any base map, okay cool. I know alot of people have been jsust taking the base map and letting it autotune with their (Hydra and Megasquirt systems) using the long term trims and what not. It seems to be working for them but for sure get it dyno tuned professionally.

Ohh yay I like all the features of the AEM boxes. I dunno why more people aren't running them.

Well V8Roadsters are local here in Tampa, FL so it's pretty easy to get the mounts and everything. I was talking an actual turn key kit. It seems FM is the only in the market on that front, but they do the LS3.
