Default 1.6 Turbo Noob

Just installed my turbo kit today, with my Brain built DIYPNP that I've purchased awhile ago and haven't really used until now Does anyone have a good base map I can go from with a similar setup? Currently running 460cc RX7 injectors, IAT sensor and the GT2560r turbo on my 1990 1.6. I've looked online and haven't found a whole lot of maps with this setup. Any help is appreciated, I'm new at this whole FI and tuning thing

I don't have one for a 1.6.

i have pretty much your identical setup.. you didnt think to learn to tune before you tossed all the boost parts on?

There are basemaps on DIYautotune's site.

Basemaps are just that, a base. It makes no difference what injectors or turbo the tune was for because you've got to tune it regardless.

Here is an eggplant, because you've done no reading at all on how to tune that thing if you're asking this question.

I attempted it a few times before the turbo but got frustrated. Also working 15 hour days leaves little time for tinkering...

And yes Deezums I have looked into this, and I realize that. But I suspect a map similar to my setup would be much simpler to start from than a bad map with stock injectors N/A etc, no? I have an appointment to get it professionally tuned, but I would like to have it running before hand to weed out any issues I may have overlooked.

You are on the path of wasting money, find some time to learn to tune before bringing it to a shop, I highly doubt they will be able to tune anything other than the fuel map. Everything else, the parts that make the car drivable take much more time to tune, off dyno.

Asking for maps will get you nowhere, I don't say that to be mean, I say that because you need to learn how someone came to those settings. Load the DIY map, change req fuel till you get it to idle, set the timing, then go from there. This is how 99% of us get it done, it's not an impossible task.
