If you want tires buy em off Tire Rack and get them installed in Buffalo their dirt cheap! 114 ea for Direzza Z1 Star Spec... bring a girl along and say she went shopping, usually works at the boarder..
I think that turbo will be too small for an M20. I'm no expert, but that's my gut feeling.
Yes, I'm running about 1 bar. Megasquirt takes a bit to set up and configure, but it's fairly straight forward once you're running. Just need to be careful while tuning so you don't damage the engine. Pay attention to your gauges!
I actually get quite a bit of stuff shipped to the boarder. I'm well versed with that technique
