Talking First time around the ropes

Hey, my names Brandon and I'm from Cincinnati, OH. I'm 19 and this is my first Miata. Had the car for almost a year now and i decided to jump in and learn the ropes... so now I'm going turbo haha. I got used to the car being as slow as it was plus what better way to learn, right? I know this forum was the best place to go when I have questions so I'm grateful for the future help and I've read a couple threads on here so i know you guys know these cars in and out. My car is a brilliant black NA, 1.8l 1996, rokkor coilovers, gv style front lip, OG sakura wheels, and now I'm in the process of installing my BEGI Shanghai S turbo kit with megasquirt ecu. Since i'm already here posting, I was wondering if anybody also had a base map for the mspnp ecu i could use. If it helps its the first gen mspnp with 550cc rx7 injectors, walbro 255, intercooled with the t25/t28 hybrid through BEGI, and also i plan on running a GM IAT sensor so i can delete my MAF. Thanks for the help now and in the future guys.

Use the base timing map and autotune/do the fuel and it will run decently.

Ok I see. I'd like to be able to drive my car home from buddies garage and be able to get some miles on my new clutch before i go for tuning. I'll plug up my computer to it in the next day or two and see if i can figure it out with the megatune.

50 bucks isn't bad for tunerstudio at all but of course me working only part time I'm running really low on funds. Especially with Import Alliance being next weekend, me needing fluids, and money to get my car tuned at the local shop. So, if i can get it to run decently with megatune that 50 bucks can come in handy for something else.
