Default I think I want a blow job

Nothing extravagant, just 75ish on top of my 140. Cheap, simple easy. Snails or clams? I'm leaning to a hot side M45 just cuz it's cheap and easy. Oh, management is handled.

What have you done to get to 140? What model Miata do you have?

In before "only **** go super".

The only things I can think of which would get a naturally-aspirated Miata engine anywhere near 140 HP would more or less preclude the use of forced-induction.

We need to know a lot more about your engine.

Couldn't be much different than blowing a VVT motor

Don't the 1.6's make like 85hp at the wheel? That's one hell of a cam.

If you want 160whp find a used M45.

Just word of warning, that's going to be pretty boring.. I know from experience.

when it comes to this, you don't want cheap and easy. you want experienced and gentle.
just get decent engine management (i.e. MS)

Why no turbo? Doesn't get much easier than that.

I'll sell you this for $450.00:

1976 truck motor, 350, 4 bolt, wedge heads, Weind dual plane. Made 196hp/280tq in a 1974 Olds Cutlass. We discovered the camshaft was flat and only opened the valves about 1/4 the way. Installed a stock L31 truck cam and dynoed 248hp/310tq.

Quoted for truth. A "hot side" MP62 might get you close to 220whp, but its going to cost about $3000 bucks and up.

got nothing against turbos. I've just done a decent amount of development to get my exhaust where it is. That would mean starting over

No offense, but what "development" on the exhaust have you done?

*shrug* That motor has around 500,000 miles on it. Looks it, doesn't it? You could probably weld the hood shut on a vehicle with that motor installed and never mess with it again. Cut an access hole for oil filling, of course. Figured I'd offer.

don't care about V8's in the least bit.

1 5/8 stepped to 1 3/4 long tube header, to 2.5

edit
I want to add 6-10# of boost on to what I have. If it's snails or clams I don't much care. I'd prefer clams because I know I can out flow it with the current exhaust.
