Default First miata and its a turbo

just got my first miata,its a 1990 with a full diy turbo setup. it is running 5 psi now but will be upped as soon as i buy bigger injectors. we built a few supercharged jackson racing miatas at my work way back in the day and i always wanted one just never got to it till now. the full diy one page answers really helped me figure out where i am gonna go with this.

What sort of engine management are you running? Welcome to the board.

5 psi and stock injectors - I'm thinking an FMU.

Yikes -26, I thought it sucked where I lived being 30-40, but wind chill makes it about 20.

exhaust manifold is a bentek? if i remember right from looking early this morning
vortech fmu.
msd boost control box
t28???? turbo someone might be able to look at pics and tell me
rx7 turbo intercooler(assuming off a 91 or so turbo2)
stock injectors(cleaned and flowed when turbo built
not sure of bov brand looks chinese could be wrong
mbc run off the intake
custom built downpipe into stock exhaust(was in vancouver so had to pass aircare)and it will be 2.5" or 3" soon
equus boost gauge had egt before ???? not sure if i will put one back in
and not sure if it is running wideband o2

now i am probably gonna get ripped on but the search only part helps me and i know every case is different i just need someone to give me a rough idea besides injectors what else i will have to add/tune/build to run say 10 psi
it is currently running at 5 psi

looks like a hacked up greddy kit. don't think its a t28.
you need engine management as the 1st and most important step towards 10+psi

That is definitely the turbo kit, right down to the wastegate and oil feed system. It's a 14b mitsubishi turbo. And as far as engine management, go Megasquirt or AEM EMS.
