This presumes I have time to wrench. I do not . Therefore, it'd be far easier to pay the penalty of getting one with a turbo stock.

Maybe ChopsQube is one of those rare individuals who is much smarter than a Japanese auto engineer.

Re: Anyone hypermiling an MX-5 (Miata)?

I really have nothing against those that want to tinker and mod. For me, I've just got no desire for it. 5 kids, 2 jobs, 2-3 hour daily commute, and basically being a single parent leave me with little free time as it is .

And it's the arrogant "know it all" comments like the one above why I hardly ever visit this forum. The attitude of some members on this forum sucks...
