Default Vtec J32 miata Megasquirt... First one? First drive


Will post a build thread at a later date, completely untuned engine only spent 15 mins so far configuring Ecu etc. Hope you like the project

Awesome! Sounds amazing, and makes me consider this kit even more!

Only just realised there's now a kit available. It's been 6 months since researching j series in miatas. Hopefully puts down some decent numbers in a months time!

Your swap is probably better than the kit. The kit looks like it was made with beer cans, a stick welder, and photoshop.

"kit" and "available" are not the words I'd use.

I have uploaded my raw camera footage onto photo bucket. 2 folders, Canon camera and iphone photos. Heres a couple, If you want to see more there about 800 photos all up, start with the iphone folder and sort it by "oldest first"

Enjoy.

Nice man.
I thought Hondas were fairly easily flash tunable. How come megasquirt? Output for gauges?

Wiring a megasquirt is pretty easy as well. 1 day of wiring and done, tuning is a lot quicker when you have live feedback, also ability to datalog/outputs etc is nice as well

Awesome build! I went quickly through your iphone folder... please post a build thread with some explanations of what you were doing in those pictures. Some were pretty obvious, others not so much.

I am actually doing this project as part of my Mechanical engineering undergrad thesis, so might just post the report once I'm done, almost ready for dyno, sorted a few electrical issues over the weekend. Initially had plans for making a plenum and tuning the runner lengths but packaging it neatly is proving to be a challenge. Thinking Ill just use the standard manifold and make use of the bottom end power, probably benefit me for hill climbs etc anyway.

Very Nice! what is your thesis? I tried to find something miata related but would not have had any funding for the project if I did.
