yes airflow meter, rev limit and run as big an injector as you like. A MS1 should be the best option for you.

I'd recommend the MS-I PCBv3.0 with MSnS-E firmware version 029v or later. Here's an article with the major details covered as to how to set it up--

You can wire it up standalone or parallel. Parallel is easier to deal with as you can leave certain things up to the stock ECU like the alternator, A/C, and other things like that.

What's your timeframe for needing the MS? We might have a really slick solution for you soon... the cost will be a bit higher of course, but did I mention REALLY slick?

The MS doesn't need the AFM at all-- the stock AFM on the Miata also houses the stock IAT sensor though, so when you remove it you'll need to fit another IAT sensor, but that's not a big deal and is pretty standard stuff for any MS install... check out www.megamanual.com for a ton of info you can't live without when taking on an MS project-- it's a great read even if you weren't really...

It uses rpm and map in its ign and fuel maps. So assuming you have it controlling ign and fuel you can just go ahead and yank out the afm. There are no "special" options or anything you need to setup.

the MS has a WB o2 in you just need to calibrate the specific wideband to the MS be it AEM or LC1 Cejernigan is running a AEM and should be able to give you some insight on this. No knock sensor needed. building the baord and modding the ecu is pretty involved but the wiring of the finishe dproduct is rather simple.

IT should read the CAS just fine a cord comes with the kit i believe if nothing else radio shack sells them as well. Also there is a USB upgrade and even a bluetooth wireless feature. you might need to downlaod a driver to recognize the MS but this is rather simple as well

Order through DIYautotune. Tell them to include the spark mod resistors, they'll give them for free. You'll also want to order the PWM IAC mod kit as well, so that you can control idle. You need to decide if you want to go USB or DB9, the USB requires an adapter, DB9 is simple and they sell cables cheaper than most places so get it with your kit when you order. Unless you plan to use the stock IAT (if you even have one) then you need to order a GM IAT from them as well because you'll need it. Other than that I would suggest buying their 2' wiring bundle for making your wiring harness unless you plan to build some different style harness than what most of us use.

Do what you like but you need all the things I told you to get in order for it to work in your miata.
DIYautotune has done great for all of us.
