hows the idle/droop etc? I ask as that looks quite a long pipe run for a charger.

The only problem I have had with this is that the 90 silione elbows collapse when the car idles. Without that, it runs perfectly normal.

Damn, if it collapses at idle (19-21 in. vacuum) what does it do on throttle lift (~30 in. vacuum)?

lol, actually, it doesn't do anything. Doesn't expand, just forms to normal size.

Carl, you actually have it backwards. What EvoRoadster is saying is that throttle lift causes more vacuum to be present, not adding pressure. So, the coupler would collapse even more under throttle lift.

oooohhhh. I gotcha. Idle slows down a bit when I tap the gas. I'm trying to find another piece of pipe to use in place of this, but I can't get one from the muffler shop because they can't bend it far enough.

Not bad at all... I save all these pics on MY Miata Turbo folder, you never know when I may need them as reference.


Finally, ten postings, I am not a newbie anymore.

Just to verify, you were expecting pictures from a, almost 5 year old thread to be working.

Good to see you didn't consider PMing the OP instead of bumping a now-worthless thread.
