    What is the tube dumping out next to the down pipe? EGR? Or EG non R?

    Waste gate dump for the turbo. I dont think miata's usually have those, do they?

    That wastegate outlet is going to make one heck of a ruckus.

    The cleanliness of the build is astounding. I can't recall ever seeing a car built so well.

    Hit the dyno today. Pretty easy day without issue. The motor just wants to make TQ badly. In the interest of keeping the motor alive we dropped the timing down at peak TQ. The car runs pretty good but this is no final tune. Still have the intake flapper, cam control, and boost to play with .

    That's quite a torque spike.

    Eflove, do you have any idea how much a stock MZR 2.0 long block weighs? I was trying to find the difference in weight between it and the VVT 1.8 from NBs. I can't find that info anywhere.

    Red5 I don't know the difference in weight sorry. I would guess the MZR would be lighter with the AL block and plastic intake, valve cover.

    I'll try and put a motor on the scales next time they come out.
    The turbo is a GTX3076 with a .63 tial vband housing.

    I have been told wildly different info on what the safe limits of these motors are. I'm going to put some info here as a place holder and i'll report back later on how things are holding up. Hopefully this info will help someone one day.
    2010 mazda 6 motor 30k miles all internally stock
    GTX3076 with .63 tial housing
    around 400WHP/400WTQ now with 16-17psi It wanted to make closer to 450 tq.
    detuned peak tq in hopes of lowering cyl pressures to keep the rods IN the block. It also helped corner exit traction/driveability
    7000RPM rev limit holds power to around 6750
    I have not messed with the intake flapper and have it in the long runner position
    it has about 850mi on it so far with no problems.

    Do you have any photos of the overall car completed? On track?

    I think I saw your guy's garage on an episode of Tuned (is that the Lexus V8 powered white NA in the background?). This shop is owned by baseball player for the Angels (sorry, I'm ignorant on baseball)? What transmission are you guys going to run?
