Default FNG from SFL

What's up guys, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm from south Florida, been modding cars most of my life but new to modding Miatas. Currently I've been piecing together a turbo kit for my Miata and hope to get some valuable info from you turbo Miata Gurus

That's a sweet part list. I guess the next thing is engine management?

Yeah I'm still trying to decide which one I should get. I'm leaning more towards the MegaSquirt system.

I'm really happy with my AEM EMS, but for the price difference, I would do megasuirt.

Nothing wrong with a Buick! Well, nowt wrong with the squirt anyway - it's a piece of cake to tinker with and **** hot when you know what you're doing. Which wideband system are you planning on running?

Lol! Never said there was anything wrong with a Buick, especially a GN The MS seem to be a great cost effective ECU. I had a friend running one in his turbo 914 who was happy with it. As for which wideband, I'll be using an Innovate wideband. I run a LM-1 in my Firebird but will probably go with a LC-1 for the Miata.
