Default Check List

Hi All,

Currently running Jap 1.8 1994 'miata' NA
Pending getting the megasquirt running want to finish my turbo kit and fit it just need to check what else I need, and that I need everything on the list.
My plan isn't to go above 12psi. 14 max.

Parts I have:
MS1 V3 Megasquirt
T25 turbo
Divorced downpipe
Turbo inlet pipe
AFPR with gauge (is this needed?)
Heavy duty clutch (fitted)
Wideband
Boost guage
Baileys BOV
Oil cooler (rad only, not sure if fitting)
Sandwich plate with oil temp sensor and gauge

Parts I plan on buying:
52mm rad (getting this regardless)
intercooler
Bigger injectors (from mate)
Uprated fuel pump (do I need this?)
Dawes device (until can be bothered to setup MS)
Lines for oil and water
Engine->turbo manifold (any ideas where to get one in uk?)

Have i missed anything?

Also there probably is a reason not to but would connecting the turbo and small oil cooler inline between engine be bad idea?

AFPR? Not with MS.
Fuel pump? Depends on power level, not pressure. For under ~300whp (you won't approach that with your setup) you won't need it. This is covered in the FAQ sticky.
EBC with the MS isn't necessary. Your MBC should be fine.
UK? Not a clue, but it will need to have the flange in the correct orientation for your downpipe. FM, BEGi, and Abe are the most common places people get quality manifolds stateside.

Thanks for that.
Read the faq just wanted to double check whether It'd help or just be a waste :-p
As its right hand drive the master cylinder is on right.

?Heat wrap assume only need and air con or water lines near?

I have only put heat wrap on the washer bottle as thats closest to the turbo. However im going to also porbably do the pipes near the exhaust manifold and turbo just to be safe.
