Default MS VVTuner + FM LINK (90 VVT swap)

Hi folks! I need some solid advice from the experienced folks here at miata turbo, I would like to pair a VVT tuner to a FM Link ecu.. is it possible?

Currently my '90 is running stock 1.6, last year for experimental sake, I purchased a Flyin Miata Link ECU and installed it, everything works as expected, drove tons of km with it installed, and a few track days too. Really enjoy the features and capabilities of it, especially considering how inexpensive it is!

This year will be my 3rd year of regular lapping the car and I am in search of adding some reliable power, and have a complete NB2 LS I am parting. I will be adding the BP-VE engine, 6spd, etc to the NA.

I am trying to keep myself to a budget, so I would like to pair a VVT tuner to my existing FM Link ecu. From what I have read this should be possible..


Thanks in advance!

Honestly selling the LinkECU and putting those funds with the VVT Tuner money towards a MS3X is a much better plan. You will have much better support, and get good updating features for the ecu.

If you feed the Link from an NA style CAS and the VVTuner from the NB CMP and CKP sensors, I don't see why it wouldn't work. No idea if the Link would accept a converted signal from the VVTuner, and it's probably not worth the effort of figuring it out.

MS3 would be a better solution.

I'm sure that is a great option, but if i can avoid spending $1500 on EMS I would like to.

I don't think it's even possible to get a Megasquirt up to $1500, unless you're factoring in sensors and such, which you'd need with your bandaid setup anyway.

MS3+MS3x is in the $7-800 range. That's extremely cheap for what it can do.

Braineack will sell you a MS3X that will do exactly what you want for around $800 shipped.
