what board version of mega squirt you using? im going to fun Emerald or omex on my car, megasquirt doesnt do fully sequential fueling unless your a electronics god and write your own programming.
are you going turbo or supercharging? i have seen quite a few mx5 charger kits for cheap monies

Turbo, a T25g from a Nissan 180sx one made 257bhp on my s13 so plenty of grunt for a mx5 . I know he's wanting to make a custom tube manifold as well and I think a screamer pipe won't go a miss in there hehe

it's the v3 board but the ms1 chip, which i can upgrade to newer ones if necessary, i'm turbocharging later this year. I've heard of emerald but being a student i need to do it as economically as possible!

problem is with the mega squirt is that no bugger wants to map it for you. also it has a crap cold start up map, lots of poor features unless you wanna spend ages programming it, its a bit of a false economy.
you will also have to start your map from scratch where as emeraly and Omex etc have a phone line which you can ring up and they will email you a base map to work from and offer advice.
I love the idea's behind megasquirt dont get me wrong, cheap standalone should be for everyone, but there is a reason there are loads of megasquirt ECU's on ebay Sad

quick progress report :


The only hindrance i have is that i don't have the stimulator to test it, however tomorrow when my brothers car is back in action i can take it off the road and sue the car to test the circuits.

In other news my power steering belt snapped today, only thing is i figure, am going to get rid of my A/c because its a bit of a nightmare to sort it with megasquirt and if I'm honest a bit unnecessary on the mx5. I'm going to pick up a manual rack possibly Saturday and try that out, it'll eliminate overheating power steering in the future should i choose to drift it i wont have that to worry about and the only time u really notice it is parking.

i try not to look inside ECU's it scares me.

With the steering, back in the day on the ol peugeot 205's the power steeringracks where shorter lock to lock so people just drained the fluid out the rack and ditched the pump and hey presto quick rack, might be the same on MX5's just an idea

yeah i'm ok at it, little components are hard though, just keep the tip clean (life lesson), try not to burn the board and you should be good
