Hey everyone I'm Devin I have owned a 1990 miata na 1.6. I've owned my baby for about 3 1/2 years and I think it's about that time to boost it. I have pretty much everything for a bottom end rebuild. But the only thing that is stopping me it the ecu. Is there a way to chip flash the ecu or do I have to get a pnp?

BEGi offers a chip flash solution, XEDE piggy back solution as well.


How much psi do you plan on the 1.6L?

Moral of the story is that your story is going to end very badly.

Well my rim I bought from some Mexican for 100$/w decide tires so I couldn't pass it up. My hat and skateboard just happens to end up in the picture haha.



And I'm not looking for much psi. I just want between 4-6 psi to start.

According to a spare boost gauge, i can blow about 5psi. For the low price of $5000 i'll come to your house and blow your throttle body.
