I also have one extra set of connectors. You might have to extend the wire from the terminal itself because the pigtail was cut short. (about 1"). Someone make me an offer on them.
I'll wait it out till you get two more. Connectors sounds good to me.

Coils are shipped.

cjernigan, I sent the 2 coils and the connectors so at least you can get going on your harness and hold-downs.

denied! Maybe some small spade connectors will fit in that plug? Or how about ECU pins? Something along those lines.

Anyone find a source for the male pins that fit into the coil connector plugs? I am trying to figure out a way to use male pins to plug into my OEM coil plugs so I don't have to cut into the harness. Thanks.

Just cut um. Leave yourself a few inches on the connectors so you can solder them back in. But you won't want to.

I might be able to get a hold of quite a few connectors from the U-Pull here. The wires are REALLY short on them, but they do have pins.

I've got a big pack of various connectors, and a friends shop who developed some COPs that might have similar connector. I'll see what I can come up with when I get the coils from lazzer408.

frank, you want a connector shell from the toyota to fit a pin into to see if we can get other pins somewhere? the shells are super cheap.

How are you guys doing the 12v, are you running a single wire from the miata harness and splicing it four times, or are you running four separate wires from the miata harness all the way down to the pins on the plug?

I know ELECTRICALLY it doesn't matter much, but for packaging reasons, I'd assume the 4-splice method is much cleaner.

Where do we get out tach output on the NBs? I haven't gone through the schematic. I assume it comes from the crank sensor though.

I think you can pull it from the gray diagnostic box near the driver shock tower.

actually I'm not sure. the hydra gets tach from the crank sensor.

edit I lied. the hydra provides the tach signal, formerly pin 3O on the 2001.
