  • 1999 Miata

    I'm new to boost. I bought Ari's kit (thanks for all the help Ari!), and have had it on my car for a few weeks now. My car is mostly setup for autocross. I've done two events so far, and the new found acceleration is simply awesome.

    Even though I bought the kit used, Tom has been very helfulful to me by helping me tune on the dyno and answering many noob questions.

        The wheels in the pictures shown are my race wheels.

        15x10 Bogarts with 6.25" of backspace with a nice 275/35/15 hoosier I just picked these up last month, and I have to say the quality of these wheels blew me away.

        My street wheels/tires are 15x8 sportmaxx with 0 offset on a 225/45/15 hankook RS2.

            Hey Kevin!
            Glad to see it being put to good use.
            Your car looks sweet; nice and clean! Nice grip with the 275/35-15 Hoosiers. What suspension and brake setup are you running?

              I have koni yellows that were shortened and revalved. I'm using ground controls with 6" 850lb front and 6" 550lb rear springs. The big racing beat front swaybar. I have a rear racing beat sway bar, but it's disconnected for now.

              As for brakes I'm running Hawk pads: HPS up front and HP+ in the rear. It really helps improve the brake bias. I'm thinking of trying out a more aggressive combination like HP+ up front and a DTC in the rear.

              I have a hard dog rollbar that will go back on someday, so I can do some track events.

                Nice! I'm using Carbotech XP10 front/xp8 rear and Centric blank spec miata rotors. Ive been extremely pleased with the brake setup. No fade and great bite from cold. The Carbotechs also do not dust a lot after heavy abuse and they are easy on the rotors.

                  Kevin, those 15x10 Bogarts LOOK MEAN!!! Did they clear the stock brake calipers? Did you have to role and/or pull the fenders to get them to fit??? I'm currently running 13x8's w/ 255 A6's, but want to step up to 275's. Any feed back is greatly appreciated.

                  BTW, where did you order your Bogarts from?

                  Mahalo from Hawaii,

                    Thanks Hogan. The bogarts clear the stock 99 brakes. My fenders were done by a body-man. He hammered the fender lips until we had ample clearance. Then he smoothed out the body with more hammering and finally a small coat of body filler.

                    I ordered my bogarts through The wheels are one of the nicest things I've bought for my miata (the FFS kit being the other )

                      I've been happily running my kit for just over a year now without any issues! My car dyno'ed 188.88 at azdyno chip. I'm considering my options for more power.

                      I'm running e-cool, an elf fuel controller, the pc timing card, 105mm pulley and Arizona 91 octane gas.

                      1) If I were to upgrade to a 110 or 115 pulley, what kind of power could I expect if i'm making 188hp with a 105 pulley?
                      2) Will the 5th injector need to be tuned by going to a bigger pulley, or will I just need to update the elf controller?
                      3) Where can one find the 110 and 115 pulleys and how much are they?

                      One last question: I need a "splitter" for the vacuum lines. Does anybody have a suggestion where I can find one?

                      Thanks in advance!
