Red face ECU guidance!

I have an 1999
I'm only looking to push 4-6psi hopefully 140-160whp
I want to do this to my friends 2000 honda accord and play with mustangs
I can do all the turbo plumping. Might to a liquid to air.

I just need someone to tell me what ECU to use or what whatever to use. I'm not going big boost so I want a solution thats under $500 or different things that will add up to under $800
I have an Apexi AFC neo already.

Thank you!

yes I'm new and yes I've used the search bar just cant make up my mind!

look its ready:

Voo doo box if you plan on NEVER going more than 7 psi. What turbo will you be running? Get a cheap eBay air to air I/C.

I believe something like a GT2554.(or you tell me) I'm gonna build something like the Shanghai-S.
Should I also get the Flying Miata Adjustable timing wheel? and anything else I'd need for fueling to keep my miata safe? injectors? rails? pumps? regs?

Yes I'd love to go over 7psi but then I have to worry about clutch, reliability, spending a lot more, mpg. Those are after college worries!

Thank you!

Hopefully we meet up this weekend and I can tell you what to buy. There is no reason to skimp out on engine management.

Brain, he has no emissions down here. So full standalone is an option.
