Does the LC-1 for 180 include shipping? I've been looking at picking up the one on ebay listed in the previous post.

No affiliation. $169.95 + $9.95 ~ $180.

The link to the miata diagrams is just so you can adjust the wire codes to your year... everything else (except the TPS input) would remain the same.

What all else is needed. Right now i'm looking at:
MSI V3.0 Kit
USB Adapter
12" Wires with names on them to build my parallel harness
Lead Bending Tool
Whatever resistors/jumpers he includes to do the miata mods

What else would i need for my '99, planning to use stock sensors unless i decide later on that i want to use a GM CLT sensor or something. I also have a '97 CAS to be installed for this as well.
Is a pullup resistor kit needed?

the price on the assembled MS isn't bad though.

Depending on when you do it I'd be down. I've got a lot of crap to do though before then.

Default DIYautotune miata mods

ok here is some information i got from Jerry at DIYautotune.....


Adam Bradley wrote:
For the people ordering complete kits, do they come with the CAS mod, and appropriate parts removed that need to be completed for it to work with the miata?

Jerry wrote:

We can arrange that but in would be at additional cost for the mods-- we can price that out for you though if you've like. For the Miata you've got the igntion input and output mods, and if you want control of the idle valve you need the idle circuit modded for PWM idle valve control as well. Let me know and we can figure out a package price for the assembled units with the mods.

-Jerry


I just checked and it's normally $72 for the mods described (ignition and PWM IAC), for this group buy we'll do it for $62. So your assembled units, modded up for the early 90's Miata will be $330-$25+$62 = $367 each.

Thanks,

Jerry





So it looks like for $367 For the unit professionaly built, and with all the mods to run a 90s miata even with PMW control. I think this is what i will be going with..

What do you guys think?

if the discount was more on the kit I'd be interested, but it looks like it is only 10 bucks? (or am I missing something?)

Arkmage: I'd be interested in seening that schematic as well. scott.douglas at yahoo.com

yeah, only 10 bucks.. but hey 10 bucks is 10 bucks

the assembled kit with the mods done is a much better deal

If you price out the cost of getting all the components yourself instead of buying the kit you will see that you are saving about $25 buying it as a kit. They probably arn't making more than $25-30 on each kit they sell so knocking $10 off is pretty generous.

Thank you, i agree..

Not to mention they are miata people that have put effort into making this unit easier to use in the miata.. thats gotta be worth something

so thats 367...we just need to wire it up to the stock ECU?

What else do we need to buy? Just the sensors, cables, vacuum line...random other little things?



EDIT: Check out miata.net and see if anybody wants in on a group buy...
if we are allowed to do that over there...might help out a bit.

If you have any accessories that trigger from a map signal you'll need to have a wire come out of the MS from pin 1 on the map sensor (the pin with the divot in it). If the idea of cutting into your harness isn't that attractive to you then at least buy some vampire connectors from pepboys or something. The MS, the MS harness, a vac line, and whatever means you want to use to connect the wires to the engine harness are all that you will need (barebones). There are other neater methods but they cost more and are further diy.
