**Not miata*** KA24DE help
I know this is Miata Turbo, but there are some super knowledgeable dudes on here, and I'm having issues.
Friends know of my success with MS and so a buddy of mine with a KA swapped datsun roadster asked for help getting his car running on MS. I said sure no problem, he bought a MSPNP2, I figured we'd be up and running in no time.
Reverant, you are a god among men. Your MS made my life so easy.
The MSPNP came with a disc, but the files were all whack compared to the directions, and the directions were for the wrong firmware version, so the options weren't where they said it would be, and even after working through all of that the car won't fire up..
There are a few things I need to do/check on, with settings and such, but my main question is this:
The distributor apparently has some "play" in it, so the recommended settings may be off by as much as +/- TWENTY DEGREES OR MORE when you set up the trigger wheel in MS.
If we put a timing light on cyl 1 and then crank the thing, we *should* be able to see where it's actually sparking and adjust MS accordingly to get us close enough to fire up, right? or will that not work?
Sorry to ask KA questions here, but all the KA guys are like "HURR MS SUCKS NO ONE HAS LUCK WITH IT, WHY DID YOU WASTE YOUR MONEY".
