Default Just a little more from voo-doo...

In my signature I have my details...7psi, 11.5:1 AFR, 93 octane intercooled, with no timing retard. I am using a voo-doo box. Since my car is a 99, if I put injectors from an 01-04 in there...how much more boost would I be able to run to maintain a safe AFR? Would my car run really rich at idle? Would this actually be worth it?

I don't see it being worth it. You're already on the limit of those injectors, you will still be maxing the 01+ injectors out at 8 psi or less.
You need larger injectors and better engine management. It wouldn't affect your idle much if at all.

Just ******* do it already, you post the same question over and over, the people here are not lying, go ahead, bump it up to 25lbs for all I care, you wanna blow your **** up, the answer will not change, you will not set some kinda new record on the voodoo, get a real solution already and then up the boost, stop posting the same question over and over

I love posting stuff and then 1 person has a shitty day and becomes the miata guru. Thanks everyone else for your answers helpful or not. We're all here to lend helpful advice and not bash others who are trying and willing to learn. My setup might be the cheap way to go, and I might not have control over not even .12% of what a standalone does, but it still doesn't mean I can't push it to it's highest limit. As for me, I'm done screwing around with this car. High 13 second miata work beater is just the way it's gonna have to stay.

Sorry, now I feel bad, but you asked the same question just in a different way in three different threads, that pisses me off...
You want more power on your setup without breaking the bank, your cheapest way to go would be a WI kit from Kelly-search-. This will allow you tu bump up your boost without retarding timing. May gain you a half a second on the quarter too.
Now go study and serach about WI, then go to the WI section and start a thread stating your setup in detail and your goal you wish to achieve with WI and hopefully if you are nice, Magna won't go apeshit on you and he can help you more than I can.
Good Luck
