Default FM or Begi on a 2000 Miata

I am debating on getting a Begi s kit (add heat shield and stainless lines), Begi s-1 kit, or a FM no electronics kit. I have found a sr20 turbo ($75) and a Garrett gt2860 ($240) locally that I am thinking about using with the kit both FM and Begi said they will drop $800 off the kit if you don't use there turbo. I am planning on using a brain built ms as the engine management with stock injectors and 5-6 psi of boost. Which kit and turbo would y'all recommend? Also if you know of any cheaper options I'd love the input but plan on keeping ac and ps so keep that in mind.

1.8l taco taco mani is junk. 1.6l cast unit on the other hand seems to be decent.

A tater with stock injectors? If you are going to do a bunch of stuff right, drop a little coin and get some injectors too. You'll be lucky to find a wastegate to hold you at 5-6psi anyway so you'll want some fuel when it creeps to 10psi...
