I was scared of my megasquirt before I used it. Now I think that apprehension was a bit silly. It wasn't difficult at all but I had a couple of small questions along the way. But we have this place to find our answers.

I'm going to wire it in directly. Are there any setups (as in details of the settings people have used on their ms2 Miata turbo) similar to mine that I could copy before taking it to the dyno? Should be safe as I'll be running 97 octane fuel and an intercooler. its cold over here too....
thanks
Laurence

If you are ordering from Reverant, he can set you up with a nice conservative startup map that will get you rolling, but the rest is up to you.

I've just watched 10 minutes of too fast 2 furious. Can I please have it erased from my brain by some kind of invasive surgery? Watching the worlds fastest Indian now. Bit more to my taste. Sshame there's no turbo though.....

3" if you can squeeze it. The bigger the better.

Pretty much every single standalone ECU available if it's your first time using it.
