Default airbag suspenchin kits fo miatas?

Now that i have EVERYONES attention...
Welp this is my third attempt at an intro. Its 2:10 am and im not typing all that back up again on my phone lol. Im from Rhode Island, ive got a 91 blue one and its got some parts on it. Theres also a good story of how i aquired it.. and another of how i attained a hardtop of the same color. Really good storys that im not typing again. Im goin to bed. Ill be a lot nicer tomorrow after coffee especially when im in my garage trying to sort out a hacked up wiring harness and i need help with figuring out wth i gotta do to get this lil miata link thingy to work.

This is a post. I'm writing a post. I suck at life, but that's another story.

Thats basically it. But i got a 91 lowered on konis (dont know the spring make), full jr exhaust (ceramic coated header), sway bars, braided brakelines, front strut brace.... for 385.00 stopped and asked if it was for sale the day before it was going to the scrapyard.. then i was helping a friend of a friend move and saw a blue hardtop in the basement behind an ironing board.. 300 bux later i owned that too. Two days ago i got a 1.6 with a oil filter relocation kit and oil cooler, afpr, complete wiring harness, what looks like part of a fm miatalink fmu and a supercharger with all the piping and hardware for 500

I just bought a whole sc setup including the engine from a running car. I did not pull the system myself so im a little confused with what i have. It came with a little box that says miatalink engine management. I checked flyinmiata and found that this plugs into their link ecu via a ribbon cable. I however got a stock ecu with this kit. I cant contact the previous owner that built the car, the guy i got the kit from dosnt know much about anything and the car was crushed months ago. Im assuming the guy who built it must have ran with a fuel pump and afpr and maybe started piecing together a link ecu.. i have no clue.. id really like to run some kind of management even if its just to retard the timing. Im going to try to find a used wideband and start there. Ive still got a lot to learn about ECUs and tuning. Carbs all day computers.. not so much.. thanks for the suggestion, ill give fm a call and see if there is any possible way to run the lil box without their ecu..

I know. Its bad enough that im new to boost and dont know anything about computers. Throw in a third hand kit taken apart by a shop owner and the cleaning lady (swear to g) and a random piece engine management and im lost..

the link ECU will look like a stock unit it is just notched for the ribbon cable to come out the side. ill take a picture of mine this weekend. if you really do not have a link to go with the control unit i would suggest going with a MegaSquit PNP or something similar. i think you could get the kind of capability you need for the SC, I would take additional input from members with more experience in the realm of miata tunning. ( i have done a piggyback AEM and a microsquirt on a snowmobile)
