Default Help with Link ECU in SE GA or N FL

I just purchased a turbo Miata with a Link Engine Management system. I need someone to just look at the tuning and car to help me understand exactly what I have and make sure I'm running with a safe tune. I'm very familiar with turbo cars just wanted someone to look at the car and tune with me. I am in SE georgia but only 1 hr from Jacksonville Fl. A PM would be great. Thanks.

You don't need anybody since you know turbo cars. There's free laptop software on Flyin' Miatas web site (Datalog Lab) that will let you tune and log on the LINK. You need one piece of hardware (Serial Link) to make a hardware connection between the LINK and your laptop. Flyin' Miata also has PDF versions of it's LINK installation and tuning manuals linked for download.

If you don't have a serial link, Jeff_Ciesielski on this forum has suggested he is making them.

The tuning manuals are super helpful and the installation instructions were also useful in diagnosing things and figuring out where all of the wires and sensors were. Post up questions if you have them but the auto-tune works pretty well and manual tuning after that definitely takes a computer.

My car runs pretty smoothly with just auto-tuning but I may take it to a dyno to get it optimized down the road
