Ahh the linear tps forgot about that one. Is it nessicary or recommended? Just need to get the car running to move it for now.

Injectors will come when I need them, I won't be upping the boost until I figure out how megasquirt works, then we'll see how much boost it can take before the injectors are 80ish% duty cycle.

Thanks for the help,


Dean

BEFORE YOU EVEN PULL THE CARPET UP!!!!!!!!!! Take out the ST fuse. That is if your model has one. My brother said Ok I'll do it. And he didn't. I had to send it back to get fixed. $50.00 and a weeks down time.

And I had payed for overnight shipping so I would be able to start tunning for the weekend. And I had to send it in.

We are both so forgetful, I should of checked it my self.

What year Miata is this? On '94 and later ones, the ST SIGN fuse and variable TPS aren't even an issue. Variable TPSs aren't required on earlier cars either, but some people here like the extra tuning options it gives.

Lol huge Word on the ST sign fuse, I was reading the mega manual today and saw the red letters saying ''PULL THIS OR DIE!'' lol

The car is an early 90 running a 94 engine, well atleast I dont have to do the tps anytime soon, thats good news.

Thanks for the help guys.

Variable boost controller duty cycle based on TPS. Makes the car easier to control in low traction conditions if that is what you want.

Is your car FI already? If so you might want to consider EBC.
