I still had a hard time idling at sub-1000rpm :(
I'd like to see any other ECU do that with my setup though, hah.

what's so special about your setup that would make it hard to idle below 1000rpm?

get faster/smaller injectors and lower airflow.

Sometimes it just overshoots and stalls when coming off throttle. I'm sure I can tune out of it.

I made a couple little changes last night.

I managed to acquire a stock NA catback and swap it on in place of the chopped of muffler the previous owner had. The car is a 1000 times better to drive now, so quiet.

Then I hardwired my 9500i radar detector.

Also found an almost empty can of R134 in the garage. The gauge showed it was low on freon so I added what was left in the car, it could still use a little more but the AC blows cold enough I had to turn it down on my drive to work.

I was hoping to swap out my 6 speed, clutch, and flywheel this weekend but couldn't find any 70w-90 gear gl4 gear oil locally so I ended up swapping out the rearend instead. The 3.90 rearend is now in the car so it's even slower than it was before. I got 2 new RPF1s put them on with the 2 good ones off my old car, swapped out the stock motor mounts for a MMR and a mazdacomp mount, and swapped the stock clutch line for a braided line.



mmr and mazdacomp


stock


I also received my MSPNP from DIYAutotune and picked up a slightly damaged '99 head to go on my spare block after I build it. Can't wait to get the megasquirt in and running, hopefully I can get it swapped over this week.

I've got the mazdacomp ones and they are the ****.

Not sure about that MMR poly mount though, although he obviously is aware of the rigidity of those and is trying to offset it by using only 1 of them. Which side do you put the MMR mount on?

I started out running 2 MMR mounts which is pretty brutal and makes your rearview mirror useless. I switched to mazdacomp mounts and while they're a great improvement, I didn't feel like they were stiff enough. With one of each you still get some decent vibration but it's nothing ridiculous. I run the MMR on the driver's side, assuming that one is going to see the most stress and flex.

This threads talking about MMR mounts, not MMF mounting.

Let me know when you're heading over this way.


I mounted and wired my gauges (wideband, boost, water temp) last night. I was going to swap the wideband into the secondary o2 sensor location when I realized there isn't a secondary o2 sensor, lol.

I'm hoping to get the megasquirt in tonight, but a little nervous I'll screw something up and not have a car to drive to work tomorrow. I guess I'll see what happens.

Does the motor not squat to the passenger side? would it not be "best" then to put the solid mount on that side?
