    "Project Blasphemy" - great nickname!

    If I recall correctly, didn't you say you have raced your Mirage on a track? What tracks and how were your results? I thought you mentioned a drag racing track...

    16.6 second quarter mile?

    Has anyone out there pushed the 392 with extreme turbo boost, say >15psi? Do we really know at what point the engine grenades from stress?

    I'm amazed a Hayabusa can produce 500hp with massive boost and from what I gather, a stock bottom end. Perhaps our 3 cylinder wonder is capable of 2-300hp with enough boost.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    I’ll be pushing the engine; 8 psi to start. It’ll have head studs and a stock bottom end. It’s an open deck motor on cast rods so I have no idea what the limit is, but I’ll find it lol.

    I haven’t had this particular car on the track yet, but those are the tracks I frequent. My times were using draggy
