Had a ton of runs today. But i was dealing with a heat soak issue. My times would be a full second slower if i just did a hot pass. 90F ambient temps, intake temps were 100+ at the start lines. That plus having to deal with a ton of wheel hop if i spun the tires.
Basically what it boils down to is this car is not meant for the straight line. Though this car is a blast in the twisties. If i had 60F temps, with a bigger Intercooler i could have hit 13.4 i'm sure.
Car is set up with Megasquirt II, using launch control and flat foot shifting. Mod list is pretty long, so i post the relevant stuff:
Stock engine internals. 12psi. FM kit, gt2560 (ported and polished header turbo (cold and hot side) and cast downpipe), MBC(junk need to get EBC working), turbosmart BOV, FM 2.5" Exhaust w/ test pipe, MegaSquirt, AEM wideband, 750cc 5o injectors, Mishimoto 3 row(huge) radiator, and Mishimoto slim fans. ebay front mount FM stage 1 clutch. 195/50/15 Yokohama S-Drive tires, Bunch of suspension stuff / tons of chassis stiffening, full brake system upgrade and other miscellaneous things.
Car is a 94 r package car and has a full interior, and trunk, with the spare tire.
MegaSquirtPNP Miata MM9093 MM9495 MM9697 Setting Base Timing
How to set your base timing with the MegaSquirtPNP for Miata Models MM9093,
MM9495 and MM9697. These are MegaSquirt-I Extra Firmware based EMS Systems
for the 1990-1997 Miata. This video is pulled from the CD-ROM supplied
with the MSPNP ECUs as instruction for the install process. For more

E30 BMW Dyno Pulls with Stock ECU versus DIYPNP MegaSquirt
Fairly Stock E30 BWM (M20 engine n/a) on the Dyno. We fully tuned the DIYPNP
MegaSquirt EMS, then did a back to back comparison of the OEM ECU, versus
the DIYPNP fully tuned.
Then finally, a comparison of the DIYPNP with the AFM still in place,
versus with the AFM deleted to improve intake flow a bit.
Picked up as much as 23whp and 23ft-lbs of torque 'under the curve'.
Turbo Iroc - reviewing the Megasquirt tuning process and some boosted ride alongs
This is the second tuning session that my daughter has been on with me.
She's learning about the correct AFR during various engine modes (cruise vs
full Boost, etc) as well as how to
adjust the VE table for fueling control. Looks like she might end up with
the Monte Carlo as her first car next year. Anyway, there are a couple of
good first, second and third gear accelerations towards the end of this
video. It really felt strong tonight.
Battery Powered Miata runs 9.61 @ 140mph
Pretty awesome seeing a battery powered car running 9's
This car has run a best of 9.1, I want to see it in the 8's!!!
Ok, bring on the Trolls/Haters... I'm sure this video will bring them out!
