Default car wont run after begi-s install

So the car starts up then cuts out after 2 secs. Code 1 = IGF signal, kinda weird for something to all of a sudden stop working, where should I begin? coil packs?, CAS?, I know some people mention the MAF, but I can't see how the MAF affects the IGF signal.

car is a 1994

Did you get the optional MSPNP? Did you remove your MAF?

We need to know more info about your car, do you have a MS? Are you still on the stock ecu? If your still on the stock ecu it sounds like a maf issue, when i had my afm on my 90 if i forgot clip it back into place it would do what sounds like the same problem you have. Start hesitate, then die. Check engine light would come on as well.

You didn't happen to do a fuel rail at the same time did you? And swap the source and return lines by accident?

+1 or maybe reversed the fuel lines with the AFPR install?

I have only installed the turbo, no megasquirt, haven't even started the afpr yet, I just wanted to fire it up and check for leaks, the MAF is definetely plugged in.

Bad/removed ground on the back of the head to the firewall shelf? Not sure if you removed or loosened this when you did the turbo.

Perhaps your Talon transmitted something to the miata? Been known to happen; communicable diseases for cars are hard to cure.
