Hah,
I thought we were moving pretty quickly. Single handidly find coils, design a standalone igniter, plug and play connectors, tach output, dwell reducer box, harness, and make sure its reliable at the extremes of operation? This is not a quick process to do. If you guys would be willing to pay 800 dollars a unit I could hire an electrical engineer, buy the equipment to produce everything, and have this out in a couple weeks. Its a solid product, the best out there, and because I want to offer it at a solid price point I negotiate with manufacturers to absolute bone on cost. That sometimes means the part I need gets done when they don't have anything else to do. Which is what has happened on some of these pieces.

Its tough to make it in the Miata market. Most people are bargain hunters, and regardless of how great it is, no one is going to buy it if its not a good value.

So soon, yes, but everytime we have to change something, the delay is large because we start back over again in cue. We are done making changes, but that doesn't mean its going to be done tomorrow I'm definitely tired of saying next week. I've learned what other aftermarket manufacturers have. Use the word soon... alot!

We just need a little bit of patience. We attacked a tall order, and we made everything in this system from scratch. The circuits, the connectors, and the harness. It was no small task.

Just think of my impatient bitching as product demand!

Seriously though, you guys look to be fabbing some awesome stuff and I'm looking forward to this stuff hitting the market!

I understand definitely, it frustrates me as much as you guys trust me!

At any rate... DONE!

First 94-up

I'll post more details, the install video, and we'll get out official test results soon.

I haven't finished testing all the kits yet. I have 99-up person I'm going to test it with as soon as I get the housing back. We unexpectedly had to make an adjustment on that, one of my connector ports snapped off the housing. Can't sell that kind of equipment, so I'm going to find another place to do the housing that uses better techniques.

So you are not going to release the versions you have test till they are all tested? Do those of use running MegaSquirts even need the dwell reducers?

Well there are a couple of other features built in to the boards. There is a tachometer signal output, a diagnostic based feed back for years that use that. There is also coil drivers built into the box because these coils don't have drivers built into them. Ontop of that we threw in the dwell reducer function for the people who can't control their dwell.

I am willing to release them seperately, but we're just making sure the quality is a hundred percent. At this point we could sell these, but I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that yet because its just not tweaked to perfection yet.

WOW, I'm impressed, can't wait to see these finally on the market. I'm glad to see you are taking your time and doing it right. I've been in the miata world for about 7 years now and bought a lot of different parts....been the early adopter several times and had to put up with the frustration of not getting all the necessary parts or issues up front. I'm glad to see you're trying to ensure that doesn't happen....you've learned rather early for the "typical" miata vendor. And don't worry, not meeting promised dead lines bites every vendor in the *** pretty quickly

Can't wait to get my set, keep up the good work.

You are more patient then I am. If they are not on the market in 3 months, I will be forced to get off my lazy *** and build a set.

I know, I just want it to be right. I don't want anyone getting this and then it leaving them stranded somewhere.

Default 90-93

I see that you have 94 and up. Are there plans for doing the 90 - 93 models? I have a Link ECU so it's great that the dwell reducer is built in. IF you are planning on the 90-93 setups, what would the time frame be? Also, what price point are we looking at with these setups?
