Default Low Z Injectors with Adaptronic

Anybody running low z injectors with Adaptronic? Are you using resistors? Any issues? Just wondering.

I did, ran great. I had a 1.6 so I had to adjust the Amps to 1.9A in the injector settings. Because the injectors fire batch (pairs in parallel) you have to double the Amperage. If you miss this step the car will not start. Ran it with the stock harness with 0 issues.

Another note. There is a bug in WARI the whenever you plug in a laptop in the ecu and load up wari, when it is doing its initial load/sync it will default the Inj Amps back to 0.1A. If you car is already running, using low-z inj, it will either start idling very rough or cut off. If your car was off it will not start at all. All you have to do is change that setting real fast and you are are good to go. I had to do this EVERY TIME I plugged my laptop into the ecu. I was too lazy to post the bug on his forum. I'm sure he would fix it if told about it.

Cool thanks for the tip. My EVO 8 injectors are low z.

Since your car is a 99 I'm pretty sure your stock wiring is sequential. Don't quote me on that. If that is the case you would use 0.9A in the settings. The BUG still applies though. So if your laptop is hooked up and you can figure out why your car won't start, make sure that is the first thing you look for.

I run low impedance RC 550cc injectors on my 2001 and it's fine with the adaptronic.

the 99 should be wired sequentially. the 2001 definitely is.

Whats happening to you guys is that you have the miata engine selected in the choose engine for triggering settings dialogue box. Everytime the software loads it reloads that template, which removes all the custom settings you put in there.

What you need to do is just select "custom" in the drop down menu for selecting engines, and that will keep whatever you do to the trigger menu there on every start up.

Sounds more like a bug and less like a "feature"

I wouldn't call it a feature at all. I'd call it quirky. Probaby saved me a lot of time though when people go in there ***** nilly changing stuff. They turn the key off and reload the map and then it works
