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?
sounds like hte same list of parts i have, i'm having trouble figuring this one out myself

If I go in on this GB, all I need is:

MSV3 w/ board mods
LC1
Wiring pigtails or full harness, depending on where I decide to stick the MS unit
Tuning cable
GM IAT

Right? I'd love to do this, as long as I'm not missing major components, or being required to build my own wiring harness. I can deal with vampire clips.

IMm pretty sure the wiring harness from the MS unit is included... then you just have to tap into your miata harness... If you look at the diagram that arkmage has uploaded, you will get a better idea of how it works.. the wiring doesnt look to be that hard at all.

You tap into the input signals (CAS, iat, 02) and then you hook the outputs (spark control, injector control) to switches that lets you switch control back and forth between the MS or the stock ECU... seems pretty simple to me.

to to keep this simple for me here is my plan, im going to get the board that is modded.. Tap into the inputs comming from the engine, and leave them attatched to the stock ecu as welll... Then im going to get simple male and female connectors. I will cut the output wires before they go into the stock ecu and put male connectors on the leads comming from the engine, then female connectors on the leads comming from the MS, and female connectors on the leads comming from the Stock ECU. Then i can just unplug the outputs from the MS, and connect them back to the stock ECU any time i want..

the MS will include the DB37 connector for the harness, but not the wires. You will need to get some wire and solder the harness together. I made the mistake of paying an extra $10 for a DB37 for the harness as it wasn't in the list of included components of the kit, so I have two now.

HAHHAHAHAHA

LOCKED!

Good ol Gord!

Re MS and LC-1 group buy

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,
Just a note to explain why your post was locked - see the Guidelines section on Group buys.

Normally, we'd want you to clear a group buy with us before posting it. In this case, I'm pretty sure none of the forum sponsors sell the MegaSquirt , and maybe only 1 or 2 sell the LC-1, so I think it's OK to proceed.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I would be interested, but really at this point there is no way i could go through with a MS install- im still nervous about installing my bipes this weekend.

Good luck though.

Wow, that is unbelievably lame of m.net.

I remember reading a MS related thread over there, where keith from FM said the MS had some bugs, but they were "looking into it" or something. interesting.

AdBrad, that seems simple enough. I'll have the cash in 2 weeks. I'm in.

Why would you ever reconnect to the stock ECU? Tee hee hee. :gay:
