Default Links to FI info for dummies

Ok; I've been giving it quite some thought lately and I decided to start this thread so that I (and anyone who wishes to do so also ) can put some links to FI info for those who are like me "mechanically challenged".

My hope is:

1) to keep a thread here of some of the links I've got on my computer (just in case I happen to have a problem with it as it's been the case in the past )
2) to try to provide some other members with useful links with regards to articles and FI info I've read on the web.


Having said that; I'm going to start posting links:

Engine Tuning Resources : Engine Tuning Videos/ Tips/ Basics/ Advice for Maximum Performance.

This link gave me the chance to read some articles on "tuning"

These are great for tuning out detonation. After a few adjustments, you can really hear the spark advance sweet spot.

Thank you hustler. That's precisely the kind of link I'm looking for.

Check out the links I put into my mega-sticky. The "stuff" section at the bottom might have a couple things you want to include.

I think any newb looking for info should read Braineack's FAQs and your link: https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t25737/ before reading anything else.

I decided to start this one because I had problems understanding some of the concepts related to turboing my car.

I don't understand your post. I'm just trying to put forth information for those who may be willing to read and draw their own conclusions.

If Import Tuner's info is crap, I'd have no problem with the mods deleting those posts.

I must say; it's been pretty troublesome for me to get the concept of "ignition timing". That is still the case to this day.
