No, I'm fully confident that AEM has managed to screw something up that we take for granted that any ecu should be able to do. They manage to do that with all their products.

Oh you're still mad at your EMS-4. I get it. Yeah, those can be tough to use sometimes. Adding in a resistor is asking a lot.

Expecting an ecu made after 2001 to support speed density was apparently my mistake.

I basically couldn't give my EMS 4 that i fucked up buying away on any miata forum. That shows you something. I wanted to punt the ****** but I had to recover some dough. People on m.net wouldn't even buy it. But I think savingaids or someone was all about it at the time. That shows the power of marketing.

There is no such thing as a hardcoded input if you are using EL Console. The AEM software simply hides the channels interface. I can see there being tons of bugs but unlike most people who want a plug and play solution, I know what I'm doing.
Bump for updates on this? Doesn't look like there's been anything posted in this or your other build thread. I'm currently getting everything together to turbo my beater 10AE, and I'm going to be using an Infinity - I've used the AEM on two of the cars that we've raced at Pikes Peak and Global Time Attack without any major issues, and I've used them on a handful of other builds; although those were engines that I was able to get base maps for, so I didn't have to go through any of the additional headache of setting up the crank trigger patterns, for instance - which may present a bit of a headache on a 99, I think. I'm also going to try and set up communication with the wheel speed sensors, which from quick internet research it looks like the Miata uses VR WSS's and those should integrate properly with the AEM...saw that you were looking for ABS stuff, so I assume that you're working on something very similar if not the same thing.


I'm interested to see what further you've come up with since December.

Like a friend once said, - don't be afraid of large expenses, worry about small incomes.
