Got me thinking that it would be very useful to have a spreadsheet that lists what you should expect to need to
track a turbo miata reliably at increasing power levels, as well as what will become consumables and how often you can expect them to need replacing.

So here it is:

This is a collaborative effort. Input what you know.

Dude, the #1 rule of successful living is to never split or combine cells in a spreadsheet.

No, it makes them difficult to manage when do you arrays because Excel and Google don't know how to manage the combined cells. I wish google had something like infopath.

Yea, that would be very useful. I need to give infopath a try, I bet it would work great for the kind of stuff I do with excel for work.

Hopefully we can get Sav or one of the higher HP guys to contribute, I'm curious about the 300/350 range.
