In for Kitty City. I wonder who would make-up the political structure?

I am pretty sure Polly would pull a coup and become dictator.

I'm hoping I'd get donations from wealthy republicans who actually like to make a difference in this world instead of pretending to.

someone should overlay a mp62 tork graph on soviets efr6258 graph and see just how much 'low end tork' advantage there is.

Driving my brothers mp62 car was lame, yeah it made more tork from 1k rpm to 2k rpm, but it was like, barely more than stock anyway.

the above is the epitame of our disdain for SCers.

it's like he went out and tried to do things as wrong/hard/inefficient as possible just out of spite.

I'm almost convinced that's exactly what he did.
Except he's too stupid and old to do something like that.

I hope he puts the 150 pulley on and explodes the rotors/bearings in the blower. He's already putting a serious over spin on it and pushing it off the the compressor map, like not even out of the good efficiency, like right now he's on the edge of whats even listed.

I forgot to add:

Base timing is 20*
Main injectors are 525cc
Fuel pressure at idle with vacuum hose on FPR is around 43 PSI
Extra injectors total 1100cc
3.635 diff
5 speed
No intercooler

so many things to question the methodolgy...

I wonder if he got his tuning advice from this guy:

Quote:
I ran my first hill climb event this weekend in my CSP miata. The course was about 2.1 miles, altitude 2300ft to 3300ft, mostly turns with a couple short straights. My car is a '90 with a '99 engine set up with a summit rpm switch for the VICS system and the '90 fpr on the '99 fuel rail. The problem I had seemed to be in third gear I would max out at about 6600 rpm's and not go any faster. I'm trying to figure out why I couldn't get more revs out of the engine. Could I have a fuel filter or fuel pump problem? Could I have an air supply issue since I'm still running the '90 AFM? Or was I just of of torque and needed to shift to fourth gear?

...

PO had installed a '95 1.8l in a '90. I spun a bearing on the track and installed the '99. Everything works except EGR stuff which I removed and blocked the ports. VICS is controlled with a summit rpm switch. Timing is set dead on 14 degrees at 850 rpm with the diagnostic jumped in and fans off. The car still has the 1.6l afm that was on it when I got it. The car pulls fine at home about 2000 feet lower in elevation. The injectors are what came on the '99 with the '90 injector harness being used. Car simply wouldn't pull past 6600 rpm's in third gear. I'm trying to determine if it's an air or fuel issue. If its air I can put in an rx-7 afm short term and upgrade ecu to get rid of it later. I'm gonna change the fuel filter just in case. No idea when or if it's ever been changed.
