Default What turbo and ECU ?

Hey,guys ! I recently bought a US Spec Miata (I live in Bulgaria),which I am thinking of turbocharging.I can't decide what turbo to use - I want to reach the maximum of the B6ZE(RS)...I'm thinking of a GT2560,but it's kind of expensive,as I am a student...What about Mitsubishi TD04/TD05 turbo ?
Or maybe IHI VF14 from a Legacy Twin Turbo ? I was looking at CT12b as a budget option,but reading people's posts in forums - it's too heavy and will get going after 4k...
And what about the ECU ? Most people here(in Bulgaria,I mean) run Megasquirts on any kind of cars.MSI Extra/MSII is my budget option...but how about an AEM EMS ?
That's it for now...

Or one of my Enhanced MS2, since he is literally next door to me.

It's a 115 hp one - 1992.
So I will be using MS ECU.
But why a journal bearing turbo ? When does the T25 spool,compared to a GT25 for example ?

1.6L motor, i'm assuming you're planning on running on stock internals? From memory a TD4 is smaller than a 2554. Find something equivalent to a 2560. Also as said Megasquirt from Rev is ur best ECU choice.

Well,stock internals for the moment.
It seems that the Silvia's T28 is the same as the GT2560,except it isn't a ball bearing turbo...Should I go with it ? It's cheap,but I like drifting 'n stuff,so I need less lag...
I'm happy with the ECU choice,because I will build it myself - I allready built an MSExtra,which runs on a turbo'd Justy .
Reverant - any videos of your car ? Impressive setup !

What about spark plugs - Denso IK20(I don't know the colder plug index) or NGK BKR7EIX ?
Should I get the -11 variant,as I am still stock ? Or normal smaller gap will work just fine ?
Cables need replacement too - I'm thinking about Magnecor ones,are the 8.5mm worth it,performance wise or 7/8 mm work just fine ?

How about some 2zz coils ? Will they do the job ?
Or 1zz ? Which ones are better ?
I'm open on suggestions on any kind of coils availible in Europe (so LSx coils and others like that are kind of expensive here).
Btw,I already decided on the turbo - TD05-16 twin scroll from an Evo...

Unless I am mistaken, the Silvia turbo IS a GT2560 with some inconel parts instead for durability. ball bearing ftw.
