Default Still waiting

The wait is killing me.....still waiting for Turbo (2560), various stainless tubes...DP...T-Bolt clamps...Stainless lines..etc. So to pass the time I have been going thru wiring...really cleaned up under dash as well as under hood. Decided to to DIY dual feed fuel rail....install RC's...and AEM WB02. Here's a quick shot of MM9093

Do they baseline the MSPNP for the turbo setup is just as if you got it from the original vendor?

Every MSPNP comes with a conservative map that could possibly be run in boost.
Every MSPNP also comes with the recommendation and disclaimer that it should be tuned before driver hard. Their timing map is conservative but there are never any guarantees that it will be "safe" in your situation.
You will have to tune the fuel map extensively to get your AFRs ***** on though. That is the case for everyone.

Yeah what he said^^^^
I bought the MSPNP from DIYAUTOTUNE (original vendor)while I was waiting for Turbo kit. It was an afterthought. Installed on stock engine the day I got it..30 min. install....fired up first try with no adjustments needed (except check timing). MSPNP comes with stock base map...its up to you to tune for your specific mods...engine...etc.

Kudos to Bell for selling MS now (even tho you went to DIY) - the more vendors the merrier. I'm curious if Bell will be providing maps for MS to go with their kits. BTW sweet luck on the upgrade :-) You're gonna love that setup :-P I met anoth Bell cust w/the 2560 and they loved it. The ccoating on the mani also holds up really well (been running same mani for ~yr now - plenty of boosting = still pretty).

i just ordered a kit with MSPnP and they come with the DIY map. I think they are willing to share maps from similar setups but even that still needs tuning.

Your car is looking really nice, I'd love to see it again some time, it looks so clean and shinny, and makes mine look so... shitty and dirty. You sure are doing things the right way first.

I saw you one time at that socalm ojai pizza run thing (I was there in a black miata being frustrated by the old-timers driving slowly). If your feeling up to a drive you should come down to our little westside miata gathering in Santa Monica which occurs every other Tuesday night, or we can try and get together something in Malibu with some light canyon driving .

Ah yes...I remember that day...It was my first and I think last drive with the "old and slow" gang I will come down to your gathering....when i get this thing finished...then tuned I am going crazy hearing all these people ordering kits, installing them, and boosting away!! I have been waiting since early JANUARY!!! But quality takes time right? It's given me a chance to really take my time with install Oh well it will be here when it gets here.

One of the questions I specifically asked Stephanie was if the S1 intercooler was centered in the bumper. She told me yes, but your pics tell a different story.

Real nice job there. Is that an Autoconexion hood, and is what size is the Koyo? I just got a 55mm Koyo, and need to research the whole fan situation. And I have have the Autoconexion with gills, just haven't installed it yet, and I saw your post about having to trim the hood.

Oh don't go by my pics...everything is less than hand tight right now...till I get everything mounted...then I will center and tighten! There is alot of room on the intercooler mounting tabs to slide back and forth into position so you could center it...plus silicone couplers give a little too

Koyo is the smaller one (37mm?) And the hood I was talking about was an EREBUNI CF hood..looks similar to Autoconexion but not sure if it was the same size...maybe thats why you cant find those hoods anymore on Erebuni web site
