MX5, I have had my Greddy kit for 9 months and I've asked a lot of the same questions. The Greddy kit is a quick and wasy way to get involved. You need a bigger fuel pump (under the access panel behind the drivers seet.) The stock injectors on mine at 5 psi were running at 97%! You can put the 1.8 injectors in on the stock computer and be a little safer. You need to use the fuel riser that comes with the kit too. If you want to have more boost, you can go up to about 7 with a boost timing retard box. You run the risk of burning up the motor if the fuel runs out so be carefull. I've seen it happen. To go above 7, you can do what a lot of the guys do and go up to 440's. You need a piggy back, and open ECU program or a standalone to tell the engine that you are running much bigger injectors. Otherwise they will pump WAY too much fuel.
Don't be fooled by the "plug and play" of the Megasquirt PNP. Sure, you don't have to build it and it's easy to install. Beyond that, tuning is a BEAR! You need either a dyno or a long hill with someone lese to drive. Even if you have these things, you have to understand how to tune. Even DIY recomends you have it tuned by a pro at a shop. Just trying to save you some of the headaches I have experienced.



For some of the rest of you people,
honestly, some of you are WAY harsh. I have spent hours searching for answers on this sight and not found them! If someone asks a question because they can't find the answers, don't be a jerk and insult them!! "We've told you nicely?" No you have not! If a post annoys you, DON'T ANSWER IT! Why people feel the need to go out of their way to suck is beyond me! And cut the crap with the discusting references!

Hey Rob, the internet wasn't invented yesterday and neither were forums. It's pretty damned obvious that this guy didn't read any of the sticky's, didn't search at all, didn't even take the time to google before asking his questions. It's insulting to the forum and to the effort we go to around here to specifically avoid people starting threads like this.

We're all enthusiasts around here, and the average guy here takes more pride in this forum than any 100 top-posters in any other forum I belong to. It's a place that's full of critically accurate and techincally correct information that is easily accessible and set up from the very start to be spoon-feeding easy on NOOBs.

By answering a "What should I buy" thread with a parts list for the guy asking, you've just enabled his mediocrity. Give somebody the tools to learn the information THAT IS ALREADY HERE, and he won't have to ask any more lame-*** threads. Being nice about isn't the way we do business around because being nice isn't as effective as a little hazing. Anybody with a sense of humor about THE INTERNET will realize that they jumped the gun too quickly on starting a thread and will go back to searching until they know enough to start a proper thread. It makes them a better forum user in general and emphasizes the fact that THIS forum is the place for good info.

I haven't found any good write ups on the kits I want to use with different types of fmu. I was just wanting to see what some of yall had to say about yalls kits if you have some of the ones like I am thinking about getting. I thoughts thats one reason you post on a forum. I dont understand why yall have to be ******** If you dont want to help just go to the next thread. If I know something that someone else is asking about I would be more than happy to help them. Not write stupid *** comments. Thanks again to be people that really help people. I am not trying to be a ******* just sick of people blowing up this thread with stupid post. Thanks

The only stupid posts in this thread are the ones with your name to the left of them.
