Default Miata Specialist/Mechanic Re-tuned My ECU & I Have Some Questions

okay, here's a bit of backstory, i purchased this 1991 miata 1.6L from a guy who had already straight piped his car to an exhaust and done some ECU tuning. It also used to pop alot on decel if i brought it up to 4-5k rpm, let off the gas, then press it ever so slightly. down the line i ran into a puddle during heavy rain destroyed that engine, then replaced it with a lower mileage engine of the same year, used the same tune and it sounded even louder! then a few weeks later had some wiring and ecu issues due to the vacuum line sucking moisture which required me to bring it back to the shop and the mechanic insisted to re-tune the ECU i agreed to that but i totally lost the popping and exhaust backfire on decel and i want it back.

i turned off overrun fuel cut on tuner studio, clicked burn, didn't work.
currently running a megasquirt PNP2

what do i do lol

Why do you want the popping and backfire?

cause thats how i originally got the car, i got used to winding it out to highrpm and really enjoying the sound on decel, especially on the freeway.

my friends were pretty disappointed when i told them it was removed. :(

I could tell you how to do this... but I'd fear the negcats that I'd rightfully deserve by telling you what to do.

Just be careful, or you'll blow the welds on the manifold.

1) Sell Miata.
2) Buy Mini Cooper, because programmed from factory to burble on overrun.
3) Leave MT and discover the joys of NAM(bla).
