Default What else do I need or what else should I get

So I am almost done buying my turbo parts and getting ready to put them in soon. I got 440cc injectors, megasquirt pnp2, bov,intercooler, turbo/manifold,wideband/boost gauge,going to get my wastegate and water/oil lines next. Is there anything else I need or should get to get ready to boost around town 😁. Thanks in advance

What year miata, that will affect a few things?

Regardless, you're going to need a clutch, intercooler piping, a downpipe/exhaust.

You really should do the megasquirt first before the turbo, get any issues ironed out before you complicate things with forced induction.

Install the megasquirt first, learn to tune. Then turbo. If you do it all at once, you will end up with an expensive ride around town...on a tow truck.

what injectors are they? Where did you get them?

+1 what he said.
Learn to tune first than slowly add all the fun stuff. To much all at once will make it difficult to troubleshoot if and when a problem comes up. Megasquirt and wideband first than injectors. Play around with fuel so you have a good understanding of what minor changes will make to idle and AFRís. Good luck!!

Can anyone confirm whether he should install the megasquirt first?

Does he have a Miata? If so, then yes.

I don't know what these guys are saying, but you should install the Megasquirt before everything else.

I read somewhere that you should install the Megasquirt first.

You'll need a clutch. And if you have a 1.6 car, you'll need a 1.8 rear end, and a 1.8 motor.
