I've heard of some people who use 2 small screwdrivers, but for a few bucks I'd do it right with the little plastic tool you get from Autozone. A 3 pack assortment is like 5 bucks.

The only reason I can see for adding an MS to the FFS is if you are looking to go BIG on your pulley. So big that you need bigger injectors. Regardless of what KPLAFIN says the PC pro is a very easy...

I just made friends with the younger guys behind the counter at the paint store. They set me up with a contractor account. Funny, now that I don't need it anymore I have a 5 gallon drum that I can't...

Sorry, but 168bhp is not big power. Truth is if you want big power there are better ways to get it than a Miata. Most people running turbos are between 180 and 225 whp. There are exceptions sure. I...

Yup, I was talking about M45's. I am also running 240bhp (210whp) no issues. Not many people are getting much more than that. The guy from Colorodo who has 250hp in his signature is actually running...

My 2 cents. If you are going for more than 225 hp then get a turbo and be done with it. If you are sure that you will be happy with 200-225 then a SC is a real contender. I'm at 12psi (went down 1lb...

Are you buying from Edgeracing again?

Need some tires and Edge has good prices on RA1's. I don't want to buy vacation plane tickets for some Zambian fuck though. Anyone talk to them lately about the status of their online store?

Hmmm I read Mike's post and can't find that quote for the life of me. He simply said it works. It was you who compared it to a stand alone... Tempest in a teapot.

Been there too many times. If it is an abcess it will laugh at oil of clove (is it safe?). Only narcotics will help. Then as suggested a good 'ol root canal. My worst one was while I was in the back...

Yah, it sure can't hurt. The RRFPR isn't much of a management device. Have fun with the new toy. BTW what throttle body are you running?

Have you asked Bill (Former 510Man) how he got his intercooled SC with 240whp to run well? No idle issues there. Gary at Trackdog would also be a good resource.
