First post in 2018. Solo car update

For those of us counting, Engine number 4 goes on the Dyno Saturday regarding the turbo autocross car... Been ready for couple weeks but too cold!

Trying to decide where to set the dial... probably not 11

Set the dial to 8 and drive normal, you should be kicking all our butts again.

It did run. Not bad, say 300ish to the wheels with what should be safe boost and timing. Yes it is still running.

I've also added a passenger seat for Monica (or others who can fit in a 14" seat).... I've also made some braking system changes that I hope will help.

What's next, Finalize boost map and perhaps hood vents after the season gets rolling.

I know there's another guy - Shawn Lambert out of Kentucky - with a FP Mazdaspeed Miata build that has gone through several engines in rapid succession. Have you talked to him?
