Zaphod wrote:I just bought a 2013 6sp Club Edition. The Previous owner had installed at Rocky's Miatamotive A LOT of stuff in May 2015:
-GWR Supercharger with Moto-East Tune
-Moto-East CAI for the SC
-SpeedSport SL-1 Super Light Carbon Clutch and flywheel
-IL Motorsport Competition Motor Mounts
-HardDog Roll Bar
The car also has:
-Roadster Sport Street Header, ceramic coated
-Roadster Sport Mid-pipe
-Roadster Sport Super "Q"
I have a few questions:
1) Will the Moto-East tune play nice with the exhaust, or do I need to have it tuned more? The exhaust was on the car when the SC was installed.
2) The descriptions on the exhaust pieces say not for supercharger use, this worries me a bit. Will I be replacing CATs constantly with this?
3) What maintenance is needed for the SC and motor? This is a DD and will see little track use.
4) Will replacement carbon clutch parts be available now that the this clutch is out of production?
5) How do I get to the air filter to clean/change it? Do I have to remove the bumper for that or is there another way?
This car is absolutely amazing to drive. Power delivery is smooth and strong and the car handles great without feeling harsh. Future upgrades will be brakes, wheels, tires, and shocks when the OEM Bilsteins give out.
Brian wrote:Yes, if you foul a plug it goes from running amazing to suddenly running poorly because one cylinder not firing, dumping all the fuel down the tubes, putting black soot on tailpipe as you describe, killing gas mileage as you also describe. Likewise if coil failing. Again I suggest starting with the basics, if the tune already in there was working great before, it has no way to suddenly go bad, so I would check and likely replace plugs as first step...they are cheap and easy to change. Spark Plug gap to .032 and not the factory .054. That gap slowly opens with time... I like DENSO ITV22 spark plugs on this setup though each of the Tuners seems to have their favorite.
If fresh plugs make it run right again, then you need to chase what might have caused the plug fouling, by doing a datalog and having tuner look at the log.
Zaphod wrote:Just checked the plugs, no fouling, they all looked good but the gaps were a little inconsistent. I adjusted gaps to your recommendation and will order new plugs today. I didn't see the DENSO ITV22 spark plugs you recommend on your site.
I have to run some errands to day, so I'll clear the P0421 code and see if comes back.
