Is your wastegate ported? Can you control boost with a normal boost controller?

Not yet. I have a Tbird hybrid going on that I'm porting, so I'm not going to do the stock one. But yes, I can control it with a normal bleed off tee, within reason. With the dual stage controller, it will not allow me to raise boost pressure. I'm not concerned with overboost at the moment.

Necro'd for America.

I assume this is doable, then? How does this compare to the 6al?

The camshaft specs are here: http://solomiata.com/cams.html
^^some good info there. That site is a goldmine of information.

Yes there are adjustable cam pulleys available, you'd get them for the Mazda Miata, 1.6L. 1.8L should be the same, I'm not sure about the later VVT head, though

So, here's my review of the Dual-Stage Boost Controller:

Rubbish. Mine could not control boost in either stage, at any time, in any configuration. I bought a Chinese one, of course, but referred to TurboSmart for installation and troubleshooting, since it's a knockoff of their design. Installation was easy, but the unit was cheap and eventually, the knobs for adjustment stuck in their respective positions. I don't recommend it.

Just go with a Hallman in-cab controller or something of the like.

Yeah, man.

So, who's coming from Duluth, MPLS, the UP, Northern WI? My route will be going straight east through Ironwood, crossing the Mackinnick, then back through Iowa. Just a big loop, basically, but I want to see the UP.

Don't worry about the condition of your Capri.

You're going to have a blast. There have been capris that showed up to the MACG with rusted rockers, holes in the floor, burnt out clutches. Ragtop to shreds, mismatched body panels, no interior. It just doesn't matter - a Capri is a Capri - come have a good time.

Make an effort to be there. I have made the trek several times, sometimes driving 800+ miles one way to be there. It's worth it.
As the name says, it's a Gathering, not a show, even if we are piggybacking a show.

I think a convoy would be a great idea, Michael.

Definitely going to try and show up! Currently sorting out my Capri. Hopefully I can get the time off. If I do Jack, would you like to drive as a convoy?
