Default she runs!

started it up today and she runs great! megasquirt is all sorted out. time to get my *** to a dyno and get tuned. should be next weekend! cant boost on it alot yet but i will say the bosch bov sounds awsome and my exhaust is muuch quieter now. even with the cutout open its not bad at all. more updates next weekend. maybe some numbers. got a few things to do like make some headlights and fix my brake lights and break the clutch in. after 5 months in the making and its finally working

Moved over to Megasquirt. (MS section)

EDIT: And moved back over to the B.S. Section because I'm a sympathetic person.

Alright alright, I'll think about MS once I get it all together and running!

Yours takes 5 months and is an almost complete restoration/turbo project. I am just throwing on a turbo for low boost, and I'm not even close to done at 5 months!

That's the MS2 daughterboard. As far as I know (which isn't very far), it hasn't been used w/ spark and fuel on a miata with the OE ignition system. Hopefully that comes in the near future.

edit: Looks like a lot of hard work went into the car. Looks good!
