Default FMU, Suggestion.

Hello friends.

So I finally put my turbo kit together and it's on the car right now my setup is as follows.

2005 Mazda Miata.

T25
0.42 A/R Cold Side
Trim: 40
0.86 A/R Hot Side
8PSI Internal gate

Eghay Bottom mount mani
Custom DP

Eghay IC
Custom Piping
---

My question right now is, Im thinking of running a FMU of some sort. Just looking for suggestions any one might have for that set up. Keep in mind I still have stock injectors.

Thanks,
Mike

Running an FMU on an '05 will also require an external inline fuel pump. Figure $450 for the lot. http://bellengineering.net/Pages/pro...uelsystem.html

Two questions, I never ran an FMU, I always either ran a rom tune on my KA-T, or Power FC on my RB. Im not really new to the tuning world. But here are my questions.

Why an Inline pump, and why use the over price BEGi unit when I can use my external MSD unit that I used on my 240 when I ran Ethanol.

Sounds like you might be a good candidate for the PC-Pro, or even the original JRPC.

Yeah I can't speak from experience too about BEGi but I never heard anything bad about them. All I'm saying is that it's a bit over priced ..

Im just looking for a way to tune it now that won't put a hole in my pocket just yet ...

Either way I should have pics this weekend, or early next week.

Oh and does anyone have an Idea where I can find intake elbows for a T25, I cant complete my IC piping with out those suckers heh.

Ok differ question.

If I was going to build my self a parallel MS, how much different would the wiring from a 00NB be?

Since I don't see a complete write up for a 05 yet heh.
