Default Lets play who knows this plug/ ground!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys, well I usually finish the job I started only days later, but with owning a racecar/ daily and a few other cars that always need work, it didn't pan out that way. Just trying to figure out where these plugs go!

1st one is a ground, I think it goes to 1 of the 2 bolts that hold the lower half of the intake to the upper, but not 100% on that

This guy comes off the a/c line and is a plug looking thing, the other end, which is the same color, but not the same shape totally does not fit. I think I had some trouble with it to begin, just not 100% on that.
Any tips other then just JAM it would be great. thanks guys/gals!

The ground goes on the crossover tube between the block and the tb. The second pic looks like the connector for the clutch on the A/C compressor. Others may know better try that out and see how it goes.

Have a great day,

Jared's got it - first one is the ECU grounds, second one is for the A/C compressor.

I can identify pretty much every single connector in a Miata engine bay at this point, regardless of year - the only ones that give me trouble are for power steering and A/C

plug identification without a manual is Godlike. . .
