Default Couple of quick ?'s

Alright I'm still a newb and need to know a few things. I don't have a computer at the moment and can't really post from my Ipod touch. First off where should I buy my LC1 wideband and injectors? What is a good deal? Do we have a site sponsor or groupbuy going on or anything? Next, what is this I hear of a vacuum hose that runs to the MS? Which one is this? I'm in the saving process right now and am trying to do all my research and save the most money possible while still building a good running, quick little car.

Hey man! Look if you wire the lc-1 up correctly it's the best for your money imho. But, if you wanna go another safer route AEM Uego is cheaper and works great, plus I can help you with that ! Injectors, hmmm there are a few popular ones pink top rx7's, green top supra's any rc brand 460-550 etc. Also some people who run low boost enjoy the simple 1.8 miata tan tops, But IMO get the RC's they rock and hold there value plus you proly won't max them out..... Get a MS asap you need it lol not to mention you won't regret it! I'll be pushing 10psi here shortly just doing some tuning, Hows the ic stuff going?

Got the pipes mostly cleaned out. Havent had too much time with work and a few side jobs. Gotta get some couplers, one a reducer to fit the TB, then I'll be able to make all my piping fit and mount the IC. I'm working on the funding for the MS. How much did yours run? You have launch control and all that right? Which vacuum line runs to the MS? I gotta talk to ya and look at your setup a little more closely when you come back to town. Let me know if u hear of anyone getting rid of injectors or anything else you think I might need.

good progress though I guess... well get that ms for sure lol as far as the line no biggy just like a 5ft'er going to the ms from any vacuum, My ms was only 250 long story and I'm not running LC yet I'm afraid to wire it my self gonna ask braineak or joe perez to help me out, talk with brain he might still be making them for 450 theres one in the fs section with a ton of crap for 350 I think you could mod it to work with the 90's

Thanks for the help, I'll see if I can get a hold of those guys. How far south? Naples is about as far as you can go, besides the keys.
