Default I need some boost help

So I've spent some time reading some stuff on here. I'm still new to here, and to Miata's. I was reading about the voodoo box - which my car has - and that I'd be better of with a Megasquirt. Can someone tell me why? Other than saying my voodoo sucks (I'm sure that's a wide open invitation to tell me just that. Thanks in advance). As in depth as you can be would be great. My car already has a wideband and a fancy O2 sensor. I know those are pretty much requirements for using a Megasquirt. Thanks...

If you still don't know why, you have spent literally zero time reading stuff here, or reading the wrong stuff

You're in for a very rude awakening if you ask questions this stupid

Really? One might think that when you read about stuff on a forum, it would be about that topic. Every single one of here turns into a high school Facebook page rant - that has nothing to do with said topic. I don't have all day to read about people's dicks to decipher questions I have. I would think I could post on here without getting a jackass comment about how stupid I am. I don't need 14 arguments one way or the other on voodoo vs MS. Just a simple answer from one person who has better things to do with their time than to cruise forums to flip crap at people. Thus my post asking a specific question. Why even open my thread if crap is going to fly out of your fingers? This is supposed to be a helpful site, not a bashing site. But thanks for your time, be well.

I understand your frustration, but this subject really has been beat to death so many times here that I do find it hard to believe you couldn't find any of the multitude of threads dedicated to the subject.

The easiest way I can convince you is this. Virtually ALL of the people on the MIATA TURBO website use Megasquirt. This includes many of the Miata specific vendors and professional racers. That alone should tell you everything you need to know.

I'm pretty sure you don't speak for everyone on here. Did you have a miata while you were in the womb? If not, at some point you had to learn. Which would lead me to believe you'd want to be a helpful jerk. Do you also go gay bashing with your bro's? And do sweet burnouts as you drive away? If I've been reading "the wrong stuff" on here - why is it even on here if you speak for everyone? Shouldn't you be able to delete it since you are king? (there's no need to really answer those questions).

I mean aside from the "turbo vs supercharger" this has got to be one of the topmost discussed topics here, ever.

Would you rather have sex with a supermodel or a pimple faced ugly AIDS infested ladyboy?

Same idea

Thanks for a real answer, I appreciate it. I'm sure this turd has been floating in the bowl for years. But I honestly read as much childish banter on the subject as I could read, without wanting to just sell the car. A simple answer like yours was all I wanted. Thanks again.

That's all?
Really?
That convinced you?
Honestly?

You couldn't be more of bitch if you tried. Seriously, try to be more of a bitch, I challenge you.

I honestly don't know what you're talking about. Just wanted the simple answer someone else gave me. If for whatever reason you don't want my post count to go up, then stop talking to me.

Basically MTnet has turned to needing to have the absolute best or close to it, because lets face it, for what you get the mega squirt is ******* cheap, remember 10 years ago you'd be paying a over 2 grand to get a motec or some other high end stand alone to get the same level of ecu that you get today with the ms3. The voodoo box still aint that bad for someone who just want to splice some wires and turn some ***** with minimal thinking and is satisfied with 200 or less horsepower.
