I appreciate you keeping your temper in check for the first few responses to criticism. The first post having punctuation and grammar issues, coupled with the mention of drifting (or automotive figure skating), and the fact that this was not in the "Meet and Greet" section drew the negative attention of a few of our members. I'm sure they didn't realize that English was a second language to you and didn't give you the benefit of the doubt.

The megasquirt is the most common device for fuel and spark management in Miatas. The eManage is not very popular so there won't be much support info for it here.
I appreciate your reply, I decided not to drift this car is its to good of a car for that, am keeping it as a weekend car while turbocharging it also, I think I will go with the emanage I don't have the ms any more, would u no what psi the stock 1.8 injectors can do safe.

Dont run aids, run a megasquirt!

So are you trying to run 1.8 injectors on the 1.6?

Why not just swap in a 1.8L?

Aids is one way to describe a piggyback very true, a little crude but works. The car is a 1.8 with stock 1.8 injectors I am just wondering how much boost the could handle b4 maxing out, I don't mind going bigger but with emanage the tune would work out far better without injector correction.

Is this on a miata or a starlet? Confused from your OP where you show you're in the market for a mk1 1.6L

Thanks girz0r, that's not enough boost for me so I will use bigger injectors maybe rx7 may do. I am planning on using the Nissan sr20 turbo to run at the least 10psi.

What if I told you that you can run 22 psi and still only make 220whp?
