I said that because the highest CR in any Miata is 9.5:1, which is a LOT less than 11.5:1.

I have 4000 stall and I engine brake in mine all the time.

Manuals tend to lose about 15% and autos 20%. So, my setup on a manual would make another 40 rwhp.

All the v6 Camros except the 2LS have 3.27 from the factory. The 2LS has 2.92.

No, just that an manual car will make more rwhp than an auto for the same engine power. So, a person with a manual shouldn't set their expectations based on my results.

Both stock pumps are good to around 500 RWHP on an automatic. For me, the HPFP was the one that couldn't keep up, but we were near to maxing out the in-tank pump as well, so we decided to upgrade it...

I took that just as the type of fuel they used when doing the certification. I don't think that means it will be the minimum octane requirements. I doubt you will be able to overboost the EB2.3...

I would be very surprised if the 3.7 requires premium and a little surprised if the the EB2.3 does. The EB3.5 runs on regular. Did you see something official saying these two require premium?

Well, my upgrades are pushing more air into the engine. So, I have to pump more fuel in as well. The ZL1 pump delivers more fuel than the stock pump.

Not enough! She's been a guinea pig too often.

Desertion is right, the IPS kit makes about about 460 RWHP; perhaps you are confusing it with the IPF supercharger.
