So I bought all the parts recently to upgrade my MS1extra to a full MS3/3X. After looking through the MS3 assembly manual it appears that my mainboard has some stuff missing and/or different functions going on from who originally built it. It was built with VAF delete, idle control, flatshift, and ground switch according to the label on it and I assume that is what controls the VICS solenoid.
I plan to run COP's and sequential fuel. Also since this car was originally equipped with a Ford engine, and Ford controlled all A/C and fan functions including WOT cutout through the ECU, all the wiring is there in the body ready to go so making it work with MS should be as easy as reconnecting the wires to the correct pins on the M/S.
What I want to achieve:
Sequential fuel and COP's
Fan control through the MS
A/C control through the MS
Make drive ability as smooth as possible. The Ford ECU utilized clutch, neutral, BOO, blower fan switch, power steering etc for inputs.
My questions: Can the MS utilize all those inputs to help it achieve a better level of tune and do I need to modify it in anyway to use them?
Do I need to modify anything to utilize the A/C and fan controls I want?
36-1 protege wheel
97 protege crank sensor (looks identical to the 96-97 miata)
Modify my distributor or purchase a CAS?
Toyota COPS and all associated wiring connectors
Correct parts? yes? no?
