Megasquirt is the best option for you non-OBDII guys, definitely.

What tires do you have? I don't have wheelspin at will in any gear with any of my tires (RS3, Rival, Yokohama Avid HS4) at 189 hp.

I've been able to spin my stockers on Yoko S-drives and I can spin the 15x8 TRM with Kuhmo Ecstas. I think the Kuhmo qualifies as a crappy tire. I've tracked the S-drives before but not with the supercharger. They were a little low on tread for my attempts to break traction - which was done from a dig.

Obviously the megasquirt is the most common system out there but I like to be different. I have absolutely no interest in tuning myself, so most likely I'll go with whatever EMS the shop I work with suggests. I want an experienced tuner, not somebody that has to learn on my car (and that includes me). The two shops local to me that I have used for past builds on other cars suggested the AEM EMS-4 with boomslang adapter. New, those two things go for right at $1000 + cost of a dyno tune.

If my shop wanted to use the megasquirt I'd have no problem with it. While I came here expecting to see a few EMS-4 setups, it seems the AEM FI/C is much more common to miata builds.

There's more than a few EMS-4 setups on this board...

little did you know that most of these "professional guys" are actually learning on your car just charging you a ton of money to do it so you think they're legit

It also allows me to get better fuel mileage than a supercharger would, because it increases the volumetric efficiency of my engine in ways that a Krapwerks or any other supercharger can't.
You gettin' more than 32 mpg? I can drive my Rotrex car on trips and get 30-32 as long as I keep it sane. Even hooning I can net mid 20's. Running 315's @9 psi, no restrictor, intercooled.

I managed to break the rear loose on a 3rd to 2nd downshift at 35, pulling out to pass, with well-heated RE-11's (mountain ride, getting around a slower car). Surprised crap out of me. It's also easy enough on a 1-2 upshift. I'm at 202 whp.
