The MSM was a 1.8L factory turbocharged Miata. I had a Hydra stand-alone, Greddy EBC, 3" turbo-back exhaust, 6 puck ceramic unsprung clutch holding onto a 8.5lb flywheel. Was an absolute blast to drive with 393hp and 387ft-lbs of torque. I didn't do much to the engine besides injectors, intake and clutch. Had a tree fall on it and decided it wasn't worth the insurance claim so decided to get another pickup (previous was a 98 Dodge Ram 3500 12V Cummins dually that achieved 28-32 mpg unloaded and fuel pump tuned by myself). Eventually, I will be making a tubular chassis and full fiberglass body to stuff the MSM drive-train components into with a goal of around 1500 lbs and a much better COD than the .36 the MSM had.

Any other questions, feel free to ask. Looking into custom tuning my pickup, but they all want an arm and a leg to get the software.
