Looks pretty good. I'll +1 Brainey on buying the loose wire rather than the pigtail, not just for cost but because you may want to re-locate some of the wires relative to the "stock" placements. For example, using the shielded wire for the primary trigger input is both irritating and pointless.
The "tuning cable" is just a DB9 M-F serial cable, nothing special. You will probably need a USB to Serial adapter however if your laptop doesn't have one, and few do these days.
I see the boost control modkit but no solenoid. Presumably you're going to build the circuit now and leave the actual valve for later? (I still haven't installed mine, since I got the MBC working quite well lately)
I'd suggest that instead of the 2.2 Stim you buy the JimStim instead. The reason for this is that the JimStim has a proper wheel simulator, so you can more thoroughly test out your input circuits.
how about the hall sensor noise and MSnS-E modifications?do i need to worry about those for our car?
As to sensor noise- maybe, maybe not. Start with the "stock" hall/opto input, preferably triggered off the crankwheel with one tooth cut off (http://www.miataturbo.net/forum/showthread.php?t=21529
) and see how that goes.
As to the MSnS-E mods, could you be more specific?
Off the top of my head, you're going to need to do:
1- PWM IAC
2- Dual spark output
3- Relay driver (fan)
4- Second trigger input (if you decide to use CAS)
In case you haven't already found it, the MSnS-extra specific documentation is here: http://www.msextra.com/manuals/MS_Ex...nual_Index.htm
It gives much technical detail on the spark outs, the trigger ins, the relay drivers, and so on... However, for the basics, just follow Brainey's writeup.
