Which 15x9 Konigs? Did you need the 5mm spacer to clear the brakes?

I just got them too, in bronze, they're nice and light but like the Advantis Goodwin sells the spokes stick out :(

Cooling system not listed, hoping there is an oil cooler involved

Mean looking build, e-high-five!

I'm a little dubious of the dyno numbers as well, but nice build nonetheless.

yeah...ummm...nice car but 300whp on 11psi out of a 2871 on pump gas.....that's a bit optimistic to say the least

Just FYI, I made 300whp at 14psi on E85 on the same turbo through a stock VVT head. I would expect a pump gas car to need another ~2psi or so to make the same power, especially through a '94 head.

Stock sized valves - yup
Mild port work
Port matched intake and exhaust ports to manifolds

I know the video is grainy but if you can reference the boost gauge in the air vent it's an autometer 4303. The video shows just over 10psi.

It makes good power.

The spokes on the wheels do stick out but with the thick sidewalls/bead protection on the R6's the tires protect the spokes.

Big thanks to Andrew for some of the parts to make project happen

See reply from my main man 507 Miata who is the real brains in this operation.
The car was tuned at Evans Tuning in PA off E85 (which is tough to find near any race tracks in the east coast mid atlantic region) onto Premium gas. Those were the facts and figures I remember ……. but we are going back to ET in 3 weeks on the way to Watkins Glen for some partial throttle tuning so I'll confirm the figures then and get a dyno chart

Ultimately, the car is a bullet and I'm delighted with its track performance

…….. now just need to focus on the talentless nut behind the wheel…..

attached is a photo of the dyno I took while car was getting tuned at Evans = shows 300+ rwHP in green and torque in blue. Torque is showing 250 ish (so must have been 254, not 284 as I thought) so I'll update the build specs to reflect this and will keep you all updated after next visit to Evans tuning...


- image too big - will resize and post soon ……. can't add to this post - see below

Your dyno says 'flywheel tq', could that be 302bhp rather than whp?

Thats the weirdest dyno plot I've ever seen.
Looks like it spools by 3k and yet TQ peak is at 6k rpm??
