Default ok need some help...

ok guys im new to this forum but ive been doing alot of research on this web site for my 91 miata. i have an ebay turbo kit on it and i have some questions about this 02 clamp. i cant figure how everyone is doing this to the miata. ive never done it to any car so please help me out. ive got 460cc injectors and a 10-1 fmu with a 255 walbro fuel pump, but the AF still reads 13.5 after 5psi of boost and getting leaner with more boost. i know i need a piggy back or mega squirt but for now i dont mind running real rich, its better then running lean. any help would be really helpful.
thanks
dave

we need to see your O2 clamp, its probably junk. we also need to see your auxiliary fuel pressure regulator, its also probably junk.

I maybe wrong, but you can't idle 460cc injectors and a 255 walbro, not with the stock afm at least

+1 I really dont see how you could idle bigger injectors with stock ecu and bandaids, let alone run them safely

And we're saying there are bigger issues. How are you idling 460s and a 255 Walbro on a stock ECU?

well, thats probably why you're going lean, 4.5-5psi is all stock injectors are really good for. you said you have a walbro 255 pump, do you have that installed yet?

Is the ---- probe reading 13.5 and getting leaner?

You would need to talk to Olderguy or Joe Perez. Older guy sells some that he makes. He has a sticky in the forsale section.

if you are bent and determined to make your own, talk to Joe perez.

I asked once and they started talking about resistors and a bunch of electrical stuff. I would need a diagram.

Don't get worked up, this place is like a highschool locker room, where everyone talks about each others moms.

Good Luck!

So you wanted to know how to make one? I wouldn't have known that, since you never asked in your first post.

But that post does tell you that even with the O2 clap you will probably still be too lean and that if you plan to install those 460's you will never get the car to idle.

As a noob myself, I'm starting to detect, maybe even understand that there is a pattern here at MT.net -
"Say what you mean and mean what you say and people will actually help you and," dare I say it, "Maybe even respect you..."
My head hurts.
