Interested in a link. Thats been on my mind forever. A PWM controlled actuator could probably be used with megasquirt boost control. Its as simple as turning the duty cycle used by EBC into how much the electric actuator opens.

Someone did do a co2 powered one like the drag racers, but I havent seen pure electric. To be honest you're either going to spend big bucks on the actuator, or have something that is too slow if you go electric. And I like the failsafe of what we all currently use.

Last time I talked to Soviet a few weeks ago he decided to build a wiring harness from scratch because Russian. So he does not expect the car to be running any time soon.

That, basically.
I also just came back from 24 Hours of LeMans, may post pictures.


The miata is sitting in the garage. The wiring harness was frankensteined to the point where I decided to rewire it.

Skip the kids and stay being a DINK. Makes it much easier to waste money on cars.

Still rewiring the car. Made some progress on the braids front wiring harness.
Connectors for headlight, headlight motor, parking light, corner bulb, fan and wires for boost solenoid





But the real reason I'm posting is to ask a question.
I'm thinking of switching to LED bulbs. They are cheaper to buy in bulk. Would anyone be interested in a full set of LEDs for NA miata for, say, $50 shipped? eBay grade LEDs. sure, but they all use the same damn chips, amirite? Would include all exterior bulbs except headlights. Will also throw in a resistor to mod your flasher module so it blinks normally.

Anyone interested?

Have you ever needed to add a wire to your headlight harness?

Also I'm adding a couple of wires as filler/just cause
