Default Bipes or Intercooler first

I bought a greddy kit wich i should receive soon and I already have rx7 AFM , 1.8 injectors ,and a blow off valve thats coming also

I dont have alot of money left but im wondering if i should get a Bipes or Intercooler first

And also where i can buy a used bipes or msd retard box?

check the classifieds for a used bipes, both here and sometimes miata.net I got mine here for only $125. as to the question on which to do first, I would say bipes, but I'd let some of the more experienced fellows chime in.

you do the IC and try to get away with a little less ignition retard and more boost....

you do the Bipes and you can advance the timing out of boost and retard in boost, but you are still limited by the amount of boost you can run...

either way, it's a win/win, once you get both.... win/win/win

Im most likely gonna do the intercooler first because i havn't seen any bipes for sale.
What base timing and PSI should i run with an IC with the mods i mentioned in my first post.
