Smile My 5.0L is sitting on the stand in garage...

... and thats where it's gonna stay I decided to make the plunge and turbo my 95. Picked up a MSPNP a few months back and got it installed and running (still learning how to play with it fully). Got an LC-1 that I'll be installing in the next week or so and once thats all good ill be putting in my 460cc injectors and used Begi S-3 kit (2554).

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you are doing thing in a logical order; I wasn't so smart.

Just out of curiosity how did you pick your screen name? I doubt if most people know what gesso is. The software apparently doesn't because it is indicating I spelled it wrong.

I really want to just throw all the stuff on at once and see if i can get it working that way, but having some patience > crazy head ache in my mind, so i'm gonna try and hold off and do everything slowly and in order :(

I got my screen name from the name of my old cat, which was in fact named after the "chalk/primer", silly i know, but I've used it forever and it's obscure enough to not be already taken everywhere.

Hmm, know anyone that wants to trade some stockers for my very used ricer lights (There's a reason the pic is taken from that angle)? I would gladly put the stock ones on but I can't find any miatas at the local pick and pull, and the money for new lights would better be put towards my 6UL fund anyways.

It's all hooked up and running. I'll take some pics of it all together eventually. I still need to work out vacuum line routing issues, install my 460s (hitting upper 90% duty cycle on my stock injectors at the 6psi I've got it at now), and move my WB from the upper port to the one by my new test pipe. Speaking of which...

That's wild man...you live on the otherside of the country and our cars are kinda similar. No cats, hardtop, you have a 2554, I have an sr20 turbo, both use 460's, both use megasquirt. The most common thing is the v8 on the engine stand. I got a 5.3 GM LS motor, thought about putting it in the miata, but I think it'll fit better in something like a 67 nova. Good luck with your setup, looks like a winner to me.
