Default so i just bought my 4th miata.....

i just picked up a 97 thats turboed and i was wondering if anyone could help me identify some parts

first is the map ecu- ive personally never heard about it but i was wondering if anyone can give me some input as to if its ok to run for now or should the first upgrade i do be a new standalone

the car has 199k miles on it and in the last 800 miles the timing belt, water pump, wires, one step colder plugs, struts, springs, brakes, battery were replaced
there are quite a bit of dents and scratches in the body but not as much rust as i thought there would be..and it has a tiny leak in the weather stripping around the windows on the soft top... the car idles a bit weird at cold startup but idles fine once warmed up a bit. the trans is smooth, engine runs perfeclty, no noises anywhere on the car and the car is currently running 5lbs of boost. but that will soon change once i get injectors, fuel pump, intercooler, and install my water/meth kit thats was gonna go on my gti.

over all im gonna say i got a good deal since it only cost $1400 which is what a regular NA in similar condition goes for around here

that's an inline fuel pump.

I love how he chopped the trumpet off the BOV to clear the hood.

BOV is either at Turbo XS or ebay knockoff of it.

By the looks of the car, probably ebay knockoff.

It's possible it's the ECU they used to sell with the kenne bell supercharger kit.
