updates on miata:

just installed 460cc red top rx7 injectors. Wired up with some 10ohm 50watt resistors, fired right up after changing the correct fuel setting in tuning software.

Received turbo oil/water lines, downpipe (although they forgot to include the mounting bolts so now have to wait another week), heatwrap and heat reflecting tape.

Also found out the hard way to lube injectors o-rings (just used some oil) because I tore the shit out of the stock ones, luckily realized that mistake for the new ones.

Also chain came. Mazel Tov!

Exploding rockers are my favorite kind.

Injectors have been running great, went for a quick tune tonight and everything seems peachy.

We also dumped the stock maf/airbox and replaced it with a regular cone filter/gm iat sensor. Had some hiccups with that but its all figured out now. The rest of the turbo parts came in. Hopefully tomorrow we tap the oil pan for the return line, and start taking off the stock exhaust components to fit turbo stuff on.

It all seems straightforward enough, but im dreading intercooler/intake piping.

if a picture is worth 1000 words, then this 17 second video is worth 408,000 of those.

The miata is pretty good, she blew some coolant on the freeway the other day since the top radiator hose clamps wiggled loose so we have tbolt clamps on the way for that (i hate hose clamps) but aside from that shes been running like a top.

She's about 12.5:1 at the richest, and cruises at a cool as a cucumber 16:1 on the freeway. Gas mileage is pretty much the same as before the turbo, ~25mpg with some occasional spirited driving but I'm sure it could easily go 30-35+ all highway driving.
