FWIW, we now ship the MTX-L an LSU 4.9.

Good info on the difference Bosch LSU 4.9 is superior to LSU 4.2 sensors - ECOTRONS

Didn't realize getting the new sensor was an option with what concealer posted. Get that one ben.

So if I was thinking about replacing my O2 sensor anyway, I should probably suck it up and buy the Bosch LSU 4.9 upgrade (and install new firmware) for my MTX-L rather than just buy another Bosch LSU 4.2 sensor? Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Is it same controller, just a firmware change?

Firmware and sensor, plus a new cable to go between the controller and the sensor. Upgrade hardware runs between $85-$100 depending on where you buy it, firmware is obviously free.

According to innovate, you can do this with both the MTX-L and the LC-2. More data here: Bosch LSU 4.2 and LSU 4.9 Multi-Sensor Support I believe I read that all newer MTX-L and LC-2 are being sold with the 4.9 rather than the 4.2, unless they are old stock. You might want to ask a vendor about that though.

I own both controllers so this is relevant to my interests.

Because the MTX-L has a display and was going to go in my truck so I could make sure the carburetor wasn't doing stupid *** things. The LC-2 was in the Miata because I was using a 3rd party gauge in the dash for AFR. My 3rd party gauge is being silly so I dropped it for now in favor of the MTX-L so I could have a visual reference that was not in the passenger seat.

Ordered MTX-L from Emilio. Hopefully it comes with many stickers and his scent to make up for the shipping premium. :loco:

If i don't like it, i'll blame you!

Looks like the old lady is cool with coming down tomorrow. (She will shop and things while we drink and smash our knuckles). What do you want me to bring?
Also, what time will you be around? I have the entire day off, as long as I quit posting on here and finish what I'm supposed to be doing.

Dunno... we need to diff things. Harold's diff is making noises so he needs mine. I drank the beer you left behind last time so i need to buy you some more.

I have more tools now than i did before. I guess just bring the **** you did last time?

Oh, and a 32mm socket. Can't remember if i have one at the house, and i think we might need to do axle nuts to do diff? Yes? I don't remember, i haven't pulled one entirely out of a Miata yet. I left the diff up in the car when i did the bushings on the MSM.

I'm trying to get up to my buddy's place after work to press the bushings out of the 4.3, grind down the hats on the suspension, and depower my new steering rack, but i haven't heard from him so who knows. We may have to play with fire and a chisel on the diff.

As for time... i'll probably be doing things all day, latest i'll plan on starting is 10am, you can come whenever you'd like, and if the weather holds up you guys are more than welcome to hang for grilling things/dinner/drinks on the deck. Crystal should be out of work at 5.

it was 32 for all my axles. haha

I've gotten the diff out two ways. Take the axles completely out or unhook the caliper and abs wire in order to rotate the upright just a tiny bit more and get it out. Axles out is way easier if you have had the axles out recently so you dont have to beat the **** out of them.

I seem to remember the last time we screwed with mine we just unbolted the brakes, removed the upper and lower mounting bolts on the upright and then pulled/pried the axles out of the housings. Reinstallation was accomplished by using the mass of the upright to jam the axle back into the housings, never touched the big nuts. Probably not the best for the CVs but it worked!

Just be real careful with the axle seal, they like to invert and puke the spring retainer and become an oil slinger rather than a seal.
