Any update on these brian? Figured I'd wait a month to ask. Do you think they will have any help with an NA car. The three inch intake alone had a 6hp gain over the 2.75 from moto east. So I'm hoping this will help

Got our proper 3 inch intake ready to test with it about a week ago, still need to hog out the supercharger intake manifold to cleanly mate with the big TB and then back to the dyno. Hopefully get to it soon, just a lot of projects currently and it is our busy season here.

Without testing I cannot say if it would help the NA application, but my guess is that needs to be high compression built 2.5 motor before this big TB starts to get relevant.

I understand that Flying Miata is close on CARB approval. But it will require you run their version of the kit (less boost) and their fixed tune (less power).

That's funny. The reason I asked is because I just found out that FM was close, and figured that meant you guys would be too. Are you not pursuing CARB certification?

Yep..once they announced they had made it to passing the CARB tests, they won this battle. Not much point in us spending many thousands more to duplicate their efforts and split a market that is shrinking away fast with NC long out of production.

That makes sense. Sad, but I guess that's how it goes.

Well, 2.5 swap I guess! 8)

We had a problem with the car that took a lot of time to chase down. Got the car working right again and will get back to the TB testing.

END OF DAY/SEASON UPDATE...Season came down to the LAST event, which is exciting enough, but after all competitors completed 2nd runs we were down 1.5 seconds on the day and about 1 second for the season! We closed the gap with 3rd runs but both this last event and the season came down to the LAST RUN of the season. This great old NC project ended up on top by a few tenths with the very last run of the year...thanks to our SCCA buddies for the fun!
