Perhaps, but the MCM guys did use some engine management... even tried to use a Megasquirt but the one the bought on EBay didn't work right, so ended up using something else... they didn't try to run ALLOFIT on the stock ECU

They used haltech because austrailia.

As much as I **** on haltech in the past I'd choose them over aem in a heartbeat because one day we couldnt get the formula car to run on e85. It was 4am and we had a race we needed to leave for in 2 hours and we called the australian number (Home HQ) for haltech and that ausie was cool as ******* **** and got us going in time. Nicest car part CS guy ever.

I have to admit that you've convinced me
ms2 is now my next step
only... the pnp for 98-00 BP seems to have different connector... I think the problem is that my car is eudm vs diyautotune's usdm
however, nothing earth-shattering.

Btw
the car is really doing her job, ran 1000 miles (it's my daily car), zero traction issues (except in 1st gear) and nice spool, but in cruise water temp continue to rise, over 100C.
I thought the problem was i/c too low respect water radiator
so I tried to resolve with a pvc sheet:










yesterday I tried it and...
it works!!
cruise temp is now 80C, and in boost rises maximum at 90C

I removed the charcoal canister and fixed that horrible upper water line too

that was made a second time, but the problem was stainless pipes on a mild steel flange... different coefficient of thermal expansion

...crap, crap everywhere...

sainless on mild has been done before. you dont have any cuts in the manifold flange though to let it move.

MS3 from Reverant, since he's in Athens I think he can handle the difference between usdm and eudm.

OK so I know you might have found someone in Italy but...

SERIOUSLY.

Get it from Reverant. Though I don't have first hand experience with him, I've read post after post of people being extremely satisfied with his product and his support.

the fact is... I wanna build it myself!
the diypnp from autotune is only for usdm
so
I was thinking:
-buy ms2 kit from autotune, upgrade it for the miata NB and eudm connector from Italy and create my version of ms2
-buy a diy kit for eudm from reverant (dunno if he sell kits)

I have to wait until I have 30 messages to send PM, right?

HOLY ******* **** ***** ON A TITTY SPARKLER. Reverant makes his own professional plug and play megasquirts that are not at all related to DIY autotune and he lives in ******* greece so hopefully he knows how to build one for an EUDM wired car considering he only makes them for miatas and lives in ******* greece and drives a miata with one of his ecus in it.

We just want you to not have to deal with a lot of frustration of dealing with a company on a different continent. I know all the guys at DIY, been buying stuff from them for 7+ years, and I would still say to go with a MS from Reverant because he is relatively local to you, and probably knows the most about installing MS on eurospec miata's.

Get your MS3 basic from Rev.... Seriously. It comes with base maps, and a guy that seriously is Duke Nukem in real life.

You may not know this, but there's a guy on here named Reverant who makes Megasquirts for the Miata. You should consider getting your MS from Reverant.

----

Ok, seriously though, i started with an MS2E I got on here used for $500 from reverant, and I was so amazingly impressed with the ease of installation and the support he gave me (even though I hadn't given him a penny) that I sold it and bought a brand new MS3 Basic from him simply to support him and his business.

He sent me an email asking me about a dozen questions on what EXACTLY my setup was, and when I got my MS I plugged it and fired up my car.
