Default Mazdaspeed Turbo Conversion Complete.

Except for fuel management, the midpipe, and the coolant reroute, my Mazdaspeed Miata turbo conversion is complete. I cranked it up for the first time Runs great and I love that turbine whistle

Maybe I'm missing something, but: how are you driving/boosting without fuel management?

Well you don't necessarily have to have engine management for just cranking the car up in the garage...

When I said the car runs great, I was just referring to the engine running in the garage, idle speeds, throttle response all that stuff....

I sold my MSM turbo and manifold on ebay a while ago and I was wondering if I would ever find out who bought it. Was it you?
