Default MegaSquirt before turbo!?!?!??

Good afternoon miata peeps!

first off i am new to this forum but have been driving my 1999 miata for a while now,
my question is would buying a MS for my car before i buy a single turbo part be my best move?

only thing i have is rx8 injectors (not yet installed) and full exhaust.

also how complicated in the MS system being a new "tuner"...

Any and all info will be appreciated!!!!

This. Additionally, I had never tuned anything before or hung out with people who did and I didn't think it was to hard to figure out. I'm decently handy with mechanical stuff and pretty good with computers which probably helps a bit.

Just spend plenty of time reading, and SEARCH before asking questions.

target whp is 190-210

Rx8 Will support that.

was there another reason other than more power capability you would prefer FF?

They are a much newer injector design that works a ton better. They have better spray patterns, lower dead times, and all around are easier to tune and to get a smooth motor.
