I don't think so. Make a meat n greet thread before you get reamed.

I'm willing to bet because you didn't post anything about your setup, didn't mention what your intentions are, didn't bother to search, lack of effort to even spell the hand full of words you spewed out correctly and your lame *** three word intro, nobody gives a ****.

Word of advice from another former Honda guy... the miata community is 1. a lot more intelligent 2. a lot less willing to spew half-assed speculative information and 3. much more willing to ---- rape you with a flaming baseball bat for asking dumb *** questions.

Now that I'm done giving advice... quit using SAFC, they suck on anything. Megasquirt is too cheap to even bother with crappy *** band-aids.

Edit: After reviewing your setup.. just buy a damn Megasquirt and be done with it.

Now your on the right track. Why waste the time and money on a Safc when you can have so much more with a Megasquirt?

safc 2 will work on a 97 but it's pretty useless. I had it on my car and received very little gains after an hour dyno tune session. Doesn't really let you do anything. Go stand alone or at least a capable piggy back if it's uber cheap (AEM f/ic or Greddy E-Manage).

Now that the ritual hazing is out of the way, had you done any searching you would find EVERY BIT OF INFO regarding why safc is such a raging pile of **** in the many threads we've discussed it.

Plain and simple, its worse than band aids, which are utter ****.
We don't mind answering questions so long as you put in at least 10 minutes worth of effort and search for the basics.

That's all this place really asks from you.
Get proper engine management and you'll be happy. (ms is popular but not the only thing out there).
