I don't see anything PNP for the 94+.

Looks like Sav is going PNP 90-93.

If you have sourced out secret connectors for the 94+ then I think you have piqued the interest of everyone.

Make that 99+ compatible, and MS-I compatible.

Put down your pacifier. You think I'd do all of this and not build myself one?

OK, my initial test last night went well, and the first harness is getting installed in its final home this weekend, so I'll announce this now.

I will be offering a Plug and Play Toyota COP (Coil-On-Plug) setup for the 1990-2000 Miata. I am ready to accept orders for the 90-93 1.6 setups; 1.8 guys, wait about a week for me to build a harness and test it before I start taking orders for those. 96-00 will be after that, probably 2-4 weeks down the line.

Question: What the hell is this product?
Answer: The stock ignition system sucks for boost, so a bunch of people have switched over to a Toyota ignition system. There are a few writeups which will explain it more in detail:

The original COP Thread
Braineack's writeup
SamNavy's writeup

Question: What are the benefits?
Answer: If you're stock? Pretty much nothing, except never having to buy plug wires again. If you're turboed? A bunch of stuff. Many users have reported smoother idle, smoother running, more plug gap (.040 or larger) at high boost (17psi+), all very good stuff.

Question: What does this include? Do I have to solder/wire anything in?
Answer: For the 1.6 guys, no. This includes a pre-wired and gutted ignitor, which means you literally unplug the stock ignitor, plug in the new gutted ignitor, route the wiring harness, bolt the COPs down to the valve cover (a mounting bracket and hardware is included, obviously), attach one ground, and turn the key. No soldering or wiring is required at all.

For the 1.8 guys, I am 99% sure it will be pretty much the same. Nothing is set in stone for the 1.8 yet, so I will mumble more about it when I know more later.

Question: How much does it cost, and when can I pay you?
Answer: $250 shipped in the US. 50% deposit puts your name on the list, which means I start to build your harness and search for your coils. The other 50% is due when your setup is complete, tested, and ready to ship. You can pay all at once as well, doesn't matter to me. My paypal address is: sav -at- jaykidd -dot- com. Please include your forum name in the comments box, as well as what year you have and what ECU/mods you have on your car.

Question: How long will it take?
Answer: I want to underpromise and overdeliver, so I am going to say 4 weeks from deposit to completion. I will keep each individual person updated on the status of their harness, so you'll get a more accurate ETA later on.

Question: I already bought coils, but I would rather have you do the wiring and mounting bracket. Is there any discount available?
Answer: Sure. $80 off. I'd like you to send me your coils so I can test the setup (I plan to test every setup I make before selling it), but if you'd rather save the shipping costs that's fine too. I will test your setup on another set of coils before I send it out.

Any more questions? PM me.

wow Sav, that is a very good deal especially since it's including the brackets as well...congrats to anyone that gets in on this, sweet deal. I am curious to see what the 1.8's end up looking like.

Sav, what is the PNP solution for the 94+ Coilpack connectors? Are you hacking up coilpacks or did you find the connectors.

As far as I can tell from "the thread" that noone found the connector that is needed and the only PNP way it has been done so far is hacking open the connector from a dead/live coilpack.
