Default need tips to get more fuel to my boosted d16y8 (the cheap way)

I got a d16y8 in my acura el..im running a ported and polished head with stock cam and stock bottom end with a 1jz supra turbo at 8 psi...I built the adapter for the manifold myself and built a down pipe and im currently using a vw passat intercooler with 2 1/2 piping for intake and 2 1/2 exhaust...it keeps throwing amap sensor code at high boost,( 6 psi or so)..I tryed tricking the map by running a vacuum line to the map with a T in the line withe a check valve on theend of the t so the map will read at vacuum and then when it gets boost it blows out the check valve,,,, which helped a lot...I can actually let it bounce off revlimit 5 or 6 times before throwin map code....before I could only hit rev limit once...any other tips on tricking my map sensor? And any tips on how to get more fuel? I already unplugged my intake air temp sensor so its reading -40c.....any other suggestions? Iwanna build this cheap as possible to make a point to the boys at work lol

Bigger injectors and a good tune that changes the MAP sensor settings.

You won't get anywhere without a proper tune. Also, there is a chance your stock MAP can read some boost (mine does, went to 0.4 bar with it) but you'll need proper ECU management. At least try a piggyback and check your AFR, you might not sense anything but it could run very lean under boost and then its a shame about the engine.
