What's a factory five kit? Oh yea, I'm a grammar ****, so please hit that **** key to capitalize the first word of your sentences. Punctuation helps separate your thoughts. It's the key below "L" and to the right a wee bit. You already found the "L" key, so the period shouldn't be too hard to find.

It all depends on what your goals are. If big power is in your future, MegaSquirt (MS) is the first thing you should buy.

No it won't.
The limiting factor to you current setup (assuming you've listed everything) is that you don't have an intercooler. Turning up the boost from the stock Greddy kit without an IC is a bad idea. And if you're still on the stock clutch, turning up the boost will just lead to clutch slippage.

Save money, don't buy anything else for the Miata, don't cheap out on your FF.

And for those who don't know Factory Five is the largest maker of Cobra kits in the world... and they make a few other kits. The GTM is the latest: http://www.factoryfive.com/gtmhome.html

The voodoo box is kind of a joke. For $1-200 more you can have full control using megasquirt.

unless you are getting the voodoo box with a kit i wouldnt buy it. i have one and so far i havent been that impressed, the amount of adjustability is slim at most. save a little more money and go with the megasquirt unelss your money bags then go with the hydra.
