If I was closer to being out of my warranty id buy it, but I just rolled 10k miles so not for me just yet.




380 seems crazy high, but maybe on e85 mix. I wonder how long everything will last at that power level.

Everything downstream of the motor can handle 300-320 lb ft of torque without breaking, so you could always dial back the boost and tune to get there. The engine would likely be ok too, although the rpm limiter should be left alone to cut the engine some slack.

But none of the rest of the car is ready for that much power being used on any frequent basis...Tires, bushings, brakes, cooling system, but you could get it there.

When you say EcuTec are you meaning EcuTek? If so that would be .

I'd love to have it, but I think Mat said it was near 4K for it. Unfortunately, that's out of range for my play money
i remember back while ago that OVT plans to make a low boost and higher boost option. Low boost for around 300hp is so the stock drive train can handle it without much issues, the higher boost 380hp will probably need some parts strengthening. The biggest question for me would be if the ATX is even capable of a turbo powerband without any calibration tweaks, which according to matt is currently not tunable. I live in california anyways so any bolt on turbo is probably hecka illegal here anyways lol

I think cooling system will not be an issue. I doubt, but i could be wrong, Mazda uses beefed up cooling for their speed lineup. Tires and brakes are cheap enough, if you're willing to spend money on the turbo and all the future issues that may and will arise by force feeding NA motor. But suspension components, bushings, motor mounts, will all cause issues and not everything in those categories are yet available for M6 that could withstand so much power, or might not ever be available.
But I would still risk and rock one of those

Lots of cool stuff coming for skyactiv owners early next year.
-Turbo kits are in production right now, we'll have some teaser pics soon.
- We are also making drop-in "crate" High output N/A Long blocks. Fully ported, cams, strengthened bottom end, etc.

We're starting with the 2.0L (here's our engine we bought for part measurements) the 2.5L comes next. For anyone looking to maximize power without turbo/forced induction... you'll want to keep an eye on this : Skyactiv 2.5L High Output Built Longblock ? OrangeVirus Tuning

we're expecting around 250BHP on our "street" version. Our "race" version will get a nice set of billet light-weight rods, rev to about 8800 and we're expecting close to 300BHP with E85...yes 8800 RPM ^_^




We have got a lot of interest from 6 folks lately, shall we put together another group buy? Also for anyone with our current tunes...we had a few users from here test out a couple of our table updates, quite a difference.
For all CARB (cali) ecus..we have FULL AFR control cracked...

Unfortunately we are long past any beta testing ^_^.

I forgot to mention in my last post. Who all would be interested in a stainless 4-2-1 header? built by us in-house and tested.

We have already tested and tuned a header upgrade on the 2.0L miata and the gains were phenomenal.

We could do a group buy on it, but it would require a minimum of 10. Not carb complaint (sorry california folks, Californias air board sucks!)
price is going to be around $769 before group buy. It won't make much more on the top end, but it makes a huge difference in torque across the entire rpm band (literally 25+ ft lbs on the 2.0L from 2k-6k, peaking 36 ft lbs..on the 2.0!!)

happy holidays!

Definitely interested in tune revision... and everything else, but it's all dependent on pricing. O_O

Group buy for tune? If so im in. I will be ready to purchase in about two weeks either way

Is that long enough to wait for the updates to go live?
