Default EK3 RUNNING PROBLEMS????

ive tried looking everywhere for answers and solutions and not much luck. i have a civic ek3 1.5vtec ive boosted her running low boost only 5-7 psi, ive bought all new bits for puting the turbo on itself and kinda skint now so for the fueling ive tried a fse fuel regulator and missing link. Its very hesitant on acceleration but will boost but then gauge says lean after few seconds and the engine light comes on i tried ringing ecu tuners and they all say i need to get a stand alone ecu and theyre big buck i just cant afford, its there any way of anyfing else to get this bitch boosting?

Convert it to obd1 and have it chipped and tuned with chrome pro or some other program along them lines. Thats the best way in my eyes and not too expensive. A good tuner can make your afr's perfect thru your whole rpm band, and pull the right amount of timing to get the most out of your setup, and make it last a long time just my $.02

I would be reading in the Engine management section. I would help you if you lived near me in Texas. I tune on the street.
