if i could fit, i'd drive it! some people say the boost amount is way too low, but i don't agree. the miata has always been a car for the corners, not the straights. too much boost makes it too unpredictable.

Closer to 6-7 psi. Its not much, but it doesn't need much.

Man, that car is a blast! Got to drive one at a Mazda event. Compared to an automatic RX-8 (well happens to sell for the same price), the Miata was 100 times more fun. Its quick, agile, and, well, just a super Miata. Its perfect.
