Default Super N00b from Cali

Hey guys, I'm Justin. I'm a noob to this site but hope to learn much from ya'll

Anyways I just recently picked up a very clean 99 Miata with just a bit over 76k miles. It's virtually bone stock. But I do have a couple mods:

Nology Ignition wires
D2 Street coilovers
Touge Run ducktail spoiler
Axis OG oldskool wheels 15x8 +25 offset (Work Equips 03 reps)
Some no name axle back exhaust
And a Neochrome Blox 490 stainless steel spherical shift ****

I have many plans for it in the future. But one of the mods I'd really like to do is the FFS supercharger kit.

I'll have pictures up shortly :3

Welcome to the forum.

Please don't ever buy an FFS kit. It isn't what you think it is. Or what they say it is.

Please spend some time studying how and why it is a bad idea to put an Eaton M45 on the cold side of your engine. Then learn why it is a bad idea to use powercards, timing cards, and RRFPRs.

Try the DIY FAQ sticky thread. It is a little old but still informative.

FFS is MP62, not M45. With proper fuel management it's a decent kit. But the fifth injector is a joke.

BTW, my friend with a JR MP45 hotside just put in a powercard and it's running great. For less than 8PSI, it's a decent solution.

Well the thing is since I'm in California, I want to stay CARB legal. Since I have dealt with being pulled over and getting a ref ticket. I've also looked at other threads and everyone is preferring the FFS kit over the Turbocharged BEGI kit. Idk I've got some time before making my decision.

P.S. Like I said I'm super noob not really know what I'm doing lol
