Default 2004 1.8 with FM2 into 90

Hi. I'm Matt. I'm in the midst of swapping in a 2004 1.8L with a FM2 BBB turbo kit from a friend's Miata into my 1990. (He's replacing it with a LS2.) I'm leaning towards controlling it with MS3, but haven't finalized the wiring plan yet.

I actually just got the new engine in earlier today.

other than wiring it should be trivial. take your friend's throttle cable.

Yeah, getting the engine in was just unbolt one, bolt in the next. Thanks for the reminder about the throttle cable.
