Default Need help with VICS

I just completed a 1.8 NB1 swap in my 93 miata. Got everything working fine exept the vics manifold.
The car is running on a MS3 Basic and i wired the vics solonoid trough the evap charcoal canister wires. I read that those wires give a +12v and a switched ground at the ecu.
The problem where im running into is that i cant get it working trough ms3 basic.
Is it wired corrertly? if so which port do i use in programmable on/off outputs?

Should have had documents with the ECU. Reverent might be your next contact.

The evap wires are not connected to the ECU. Use the DB37 wires.

MS Labs: Plug and Play Megasquirt ECUs for ANY 90-05 Miata (NA, NB1, NB2 w/VVT, MSM), including basemaps to get you started ASAP. PM me or email or details.
For support on MS Labs ECUs: Please email, be sure to include the unit's serial number and include a datalog and your current map.

Which is not to say that you have to change what you did in the engine compartment. You can re-purpose the Evap wires, but you have to splice them into the DB37 wires at the MS3.

You should have a chart that tells which DB37 wire and output controls the VICS.

Thanks,

Rewiring the wires this saturday to the db37 connector. I think i will cut pin 2X (purge valve solonoid) on the ecu plug and wire this to the db37 connector.
