The day has come to find out if all of our hard work has paid off, has it been worth it to throw a turbo kit on the Miata in our journey for more power. Today we wrap up what needs to be done in order to get the Miata back down to the Dyno at EF1 Motorsports. Will it explode? Will it even make it down? Will it make more power? So many questions!!! Let’s get to it!

  • Hey I got a r18 z1 in my Honda Civic 2015 ex coupe and I have begun to mod it a little I have put better injectors like 24p, a performance fuel pump, magna flow exhaust with 2.5 opening, and also a k/n air intake and changed fuel pressure valve and Oxygen sensor. I have been looking into tunning all this once I put a supercharger or turbo charger, but I have one problem I would be running all this on a cvt transmission...any suggestions

  • What’s the cost of a tuning session like this? Throwing a turbo into my wife’s 2.5l Beetle, and there’s a company that will reprogram ECU for $700 but would feel better tuning on a dyno. Just scared of the potential cost.

    paris dakaparis dakaپیش 7 روز
  • Technically you're not making 227whp because you told your tuner to dial it back by 2psi of boost. So no you're not driving or racing your miata at 227whp, at 12psi you're like around 210whp or so. So stop lying bro it would've been cheaper dropping a k24a into your miata and make 227whp all motor stock!!
