I thought we were talking about IRTB for the throttle response, ... but I did take it off topic. 200 hp would be nice. I want it. But I'm digging my modest SC set-up.

when driving ed's car:

very nice throttle response, but the way the manufacturer designed the kit, the throttle cable's linkage made the pedal VERY sensitive/soft, that i didnt like, but yea, no lag, instant power all the way up to redline, one thing you'd notice is the amount of drag the engine has, assuming is the extra pulley system added on the engine, when i was making an uturn, you have to keep the rpms up instead of letting it coast or it has a chance of dying out

again i only drove it once for like 10 minutes so this isnt a VERY accurate portrayal of SC'd cars

SC throttle response is pretty much instant.

Now, back to IRTB. They are beautiful! But I'd be paranoid to drive this on the street. For me IRTB's would effectively be for a trailered track car only.

My biggest concern with rocking an IRTB setup is getting pulled over and hood popped eventually for it. It is definitely not legal and you would have to revert the car back to stock. Not too big of a deal for some people, but it's would be a pain in the ass to do that. At least with a turbo setup you can present documentation stating that you setup is CARB'd even though they can still send you to the ref. Other than that, I think IRTB's look dope, especially on a Miata

Craig - glad to see you're loving the mspnp and the 460's! I'm tweaking my mspnp right now and have a set of 460's getting cleaned before going in at the moment ;)
19 rwhp and 22 lb-ft is awesome. You'll be having a blast at the next race!

As great as the Maruha kit is, they don't make it as accessable for purchase as the FujiRacing one is.

Chikara in canada sells them so we do have a dealer in North America. and it also come with their ECU. They claim that it works well for city driving too.

I think the spam-bots are now doing a public service by reviving "vintage" threads.

Clearly a spammer. Who in their right mind would own more than one BMW, let alone four?

Yeah, one I can understand. One is an "oops" moment. Each additional BMW is an exponential multiple of some form of self-hating psychosis.
