Default hello from Lithuania

Hi. I'm Tomas and i live far from USA. My country is Lithuania.

So, a few years ago I'v got this 1993 BRG 1.6l miata with 75k miles on it:




and now, I want more power on this little car...
so yesterday this came from Canada:


it is, as you see, greddy bolt on with custom downpipe + blitz BOV.

sorry for my poor english.

non adjustable KYB's and Eibach springs. But I'm not satisfied, because the back became a little bit jumpy

I have a dull question:

will AFPR rise fuel preasure or it just adjust the preasure?

It is according t which one you have. If it is boost driven than yes.

If it is just a adjustable fuel pressure riser NOOOOOO!

Basically the pressurer only needs to rise when boost kicks in. That is why the vacume line hooks to it, and the boost drives the fmu to stop the flow of the gas return line, which enturn raises the pressure of fuel to the injectors. Which makes more gas flow through the injectors like they are larger.

So basically if the afpr you have is not boost driven, your pressure needed while in boost will flood your car out of boost. Or if you have it set for out of boost, it will go lean in boost and blow your motor.

The factory greddy has upgradable disk for the fmu.

But if your AFPR is boost driven, that sounds like a better unit.

PS, if you have one of those china afpr's, don't use it. Just get a disk for the fmu.
But if you afpr is a begi, cartech or something namebrand great.

Hope this helps, if you need more clearification just ask.
Good Luck!

I would probably start asking questions in a different section. Once people reply to a meet and great they usually don't come back. As where other threads continue.

Have a good day!
