Smile Got Boost?? I need it - New guy from Manchester, England

Hi guys, I'm Andy from Manchester in the UK. Having just finished my 650hp Nissan Skyline R32 GTR build, the wife wants me to turbo her 1993 1.6 Eunos Roadster. So.... Any guidance for a budget turbo build and Ecu choice would be cool!! I look forward to learning from you guys!!

Cheers, Andy

Easiest way would be to buy a Begi or Flyin Miata kit with either a Hydra ecu, Aem ecu, or a Megasquirt ecu built by Braineack or Reverant. Depending on your budget, you could also wait around on the forums for a used setup of the same caliper for a much lower price. The megaquirt will be your cheapest ecu option, and has the most support on this forum. Searching around here and reading through build threads will help point you in the right direction.

In return for this post, i would love to see some pictures and more info on your skyline.

Evan

Welcome godzillar32.

This site is a fabulous resource for FI'ing your car, but also there is a UK forum - MX5Nutz - with a lot members with FI'd MX5's in the NorthWest of the UK, might also be a useful site for you to browse/search

P.S. pics of the Skyline are required
