you could take the cheaper route and just do a band-aid setup with a RRFPR from BEGi or Vortech and some sort of boost timing control, or just take the best bang for your buck and shill out the money for either a Megasquirt DIYPNP offered on this site in the sale threads, or a complete plug n' play MSPNP from diyautotune.com


$600+ 100 or so bucks for a wideband sensor to replace the stock sensor is well worth it than blowing up your motor

Thus why if its a really retarded person, they got the info they needed...

But if its a suspected troll (that I think he is), I give the troll poison.

What is "pretty lean" and what AFPR are you using? Pictures of your setup would greatly help.

1. Stop boosting your motor lean right now before you blow it up!

2. Walk before you run. Read this https://www.miataturbo.net/diy-turbo-discussion-14/diy-faq-all-your-answers-one-big-post-4288/ for the basics.

3. Come back with more knowledge and a less vague description of your setup and ask questions.

4. Catch Hell for not doing # 2. or posting a meet and greet thread with a description.

5. Fix your issue, enjoy boosted Miata and live the dream.

Yes, less info is more. I really want to help you. All your turd bucket stock ecu will handle is 305 injectors. Get a megasquirt. Standalones are so cheap for our cars you have no excuse. After this, stock 1.8 injectors will do 7-8 psi. After you are done failing on stock 1.8 injectors, atleast get some 460's. Now you can run 12-15 psi and not fail so much. lf you really want to be a baller get some 1000's and run e85, I doubt you are that awesome though.

I don't use fuel injectors, just hollow tubes that go from the fuel rail to the intake manifold.
