I has a sad. It was scheduled to be a monumental day. Mounted the wheels and tires yesterday, cleaned out the area behind the miata so I could get it out to the street for the first time in 14 months. Woke up this morning pumped! Today is the DAY! It's going to actually drive again!

Nope. **** you Ryan. **** you and your moneypit.

Loses crank sync at 2,500rpm. Hasn't done this during last month that's it's been running on jack stands. Checked all grounds, crank sensor gap, and moved the pot dials in the MS, in .5 turn increments. No difference. I'm lost. Again. Don't know what to do.

Any ideas?

I use my AAA card to set the space between the sensor and the wheel.

I drove the car today. Pretty solid first run around the block.15 times. Then to VatoZone to get a gas cap. Pretty amazing, the amount of torque it makes. If feels like it really only needs 4th gear, for everything. Good thing, because this six speed bites nuts compared to the butter 5.

It's far from done, lots more tune time to get it running good. Lots more little bits and pieces to make still.

Thanks to all who have helped me get this far. I hit some pretty low points during this 15 month journey, and a few of you convinced me to just step back for a bit. Gather my zhit back together. I managed to garble up my own thread with bitching, moaning, and whining. When I go back and read it now, its pretty embarrassing. Anyway, I think I am on the upward tend now.

Thanks guys,

Ryan

Ps, when over boost protection sets in, it DOES scare the crap out of you the first couple times.

So it was goin really well..... Now its not.

problems.

1. Noticed tps wasnt reading 100 at full throttle, so I re-calibrated it. now it idles at like 2k and anything I do, makes it just instantly die.

2. was making 12 lbs of boost last night, smooth and working well. today it make 8 and the engine studders really bad when it gets to that 8 psi.


I cant see anything in the log that tells me anything about the 8psi studder, but im a noob boner at reading a log anyway. Super tired from the day, so Im probably not thinking straight.

What do you guys think?

No log, no help

1. Your TPS signal probably never goes below the idle tps cutoff. This keeps you from going into idle if your TPS is above whatever value you set it to. Make sure your TPS value at no throttle is around 0.

2. Log

Yes, I read that in the drop down.

So why does it just tell me "request sent to miataturbo.net" then fail? Its a 7 kb file. isnt that considerably smaller than 4.77mb ?


fail edit...It is a 7,000kb file. way to big.

If you rename a .MSL to .CSV you can open them in excel or something similar like openoffice and edit off data you don't need.

You'll have to have windows set to "show file extensions of known file types" to be able to rename .msl to .csv, you can google that string there for directions on how to change that.
