Targa Miata
September 3, 2009 - A very interesting car was at Flyin' Miata yesterday.
It's a national-level autocross car, and it had some fascinating tweaks in it. I was given a guided tour by the owner before the car went on the dyno. His weight-savings techniques extended as far as grinding off unused bosses on the intake manifold.
The car also spent some time on the FM dyno. This car already has a lot of dyno time on it, testing every change made from intake pipe length to various intake manifolds. It did extremely well. It's time for me to dig into the engine on the Targa car and see what I can do for the output.
Or at least, it will be as soon as I'm done with the current book. Six more week and I'm free!
