VVT Beast’s BIGGEST Dyno Day Yet!

Here we are once again at my second home, Advanced Engine Dynamix. This time it's with the VVT Beast Miata, which hasn't been on the dyno in 2 years. Will the engine still produce good numbers? Will the new Kraken Exhaust System flow well? But the biggest question that will be answered today, which turbo [...]

The Head Data Mega Page

Welcome to Car Passion's collection of cylinder head data. This page will be continuously under construction until at least July, as I'm currently working through fixing/modifying/rebuilding 3 Miata cylinder heads. The VVT head in the 420whp "VVT Beast Miata" ate up its own intake valves at about 13,000 hard miles (21,000km). This is likely due [...]

Since you guys are always asking about launch control, I thought I’d do another video about it with the new engine. (Here’s the original from 2016). As I stated in the video, use at your own risk!

Turbo Miata vs. Turbo Miata! (Car Passion vs. Danny Courtney)

This was a texbook race showing that there’s a lot more to a turbo setup than just “PSI.” More displacement, a more efficient & responsive turbo, fuel that can handle more ignition advance, longer gearing, and flatshift were on my side. Here’s a brief rundown of the setups!

The Transmission Destroyer… TWO 6-speeds in two weeks 🙁

Hey guys! So quite a disappointment with the transmission problems, but there’s really no such thing as an easy build. I’m infinitely grateful that the engine has been problem free thus far. I’ve tried to illustrate what exactly I think happened to both transmissions here, and although I mentioned it briefly in the video I […]
