and did some de-carbonization of my combustion chambers thanks to some steam cleaning.

Wired up and turned on the two step feature in the microtech. Took out the useless rear seats, no real weight savings.

not really... it does tend to idle a bit smoother now, but it could probably use some more water injection treatment as the piston tops still have some crap on them

-put in a set of BKR8EIX ngk iridium plugs, 3 heat ranges colder (suggested in my s/c kit)

-took out a bunch of antifreeze, put in a bottle of water wetter and topped it up with water. the previous owner thought it would be a GOOD idea to run antifreeze only, as it tested good to -52*c. Ouch on the cooling capabilities!

after this, it's already running better with less ping.

Edit* I also got Barb to rev up the car while I let the engine suck up water through the intake manifold. It's steamed and stuttered for a while, but after we went for a drive and cleaned it all out and then reset the ECU for codes... Wow it drives AWESOME now. I'm excited!!!! with a cooler thermostat the smaller pulley can safely go back on

3 ranges colder holy shit, i've heard 1range/50 hp increase by about 7 different engine builders, but if thats what the company says, must be right.

-modded a new non-blown out u-joint into the front of my driveshaft in the pits, as the existing one shit the bed across the finish line while racing Shaun in the 1/4 haha.

keep in mind in 01 Mazda decided to adopt vvt and 11.0:1 compression, add a supercharger and it's super hard to not produce ping.

adam, from what i've researched... More water than coolant cools better than more coolant than water!

Intercooler... Low air temps are key to making power.
Blowers make the same amount of heat as turbos. Its the compressing of air that adds heat, not the turbo itself.

do a 60/40 split if your worried about it, even 70/30. most race type cars will do a 70/30 if freezing weather is not a problem, cause the ethelyne glycol(green "coolant") if overmixed will create poor cooling. i'd go 60/40. water/"coolant" just test it when it gets colder out with one of those hydrometers with the little arrow to point which temp. freezing will occur
