the MS3 is turbo'd from factory, so the ECU can already handle some boost increase. since the miata ECU is not turbo'd from factory, it can't handle any boost period. Matter of fact, other than the MSM, our MAP sensor isn't even read by the ECU (this is some what disputed, but we can discuss it another time) so it has no clue about pressure or not.

fuel management, thats it.

and yes the MSM is completely different, its Direct injected so the HPFP is the second pump, but its not there to get more fuel, its there to work the injectors. theere is still a regular LPFP in the tank that runs at more "normal" rates.

two different animals completely. MSM has turbo ECU, miata DOES NOT.
