someone is offering megasquirt I, with harness and IAT sensor, for just over $300. should I go for it, even tho turbo might not get done before a long time?

Is it worth squirting a n/a car and will it give any benefits besides being able to dump the maf sensor?

thanks

Modded for a miata for just over $300 with the a miata PNP harness or what? You could buy all of the pieces from DIYautotune brand new for that price unless it is a PNP solution.

I know you didn't mean the MSPNP that diy sells. There are other ways to make the MSI PNP, which is why i asked how it was setup.

Long as he has done the miata mods that's a good price for that setup, the IAT sensor is just a bonus. You'll have to wire it in youself but that's easy. Long wiring harness too so you can put it wherever you want.

That's a great deal, i think that would cost a little over $400 from DIY for all that. Do the mods yourself, they're not hard. ask him what version the board is. v3 or v2.2

Those are the mods you want. You can do them yourself very easily. Even if you had to get a little electronics shop to do it for you for a couple bucks it would be worth it. Those directions are all you'll need along with the megamanual.
