Currently running stock ECU with link piggyback. Disconnected everything and there's still a connection to GND that's just killing me (and the engine fuse).
I already have my MS3 + MS3x ready to go in. That will also be piggyback for emissions reasons. So the secondary O2 needs to supply readings to the stock ECU, otherwise it'll throw error codes.

The secondary o2 simulator will keep you from getting a CEL.
Is your link the one with the additional injectors?

Yupp. Got the two additional injectors for now. Old school!
But I already have 850cc injectors just WAITING to be installed and hooked up to the MS.

Seems I found my electric gremlin. Twas a botched rear O2 sensor replacement by a super-capable mechanic. By the looks of it it happened many, many years ago. Car isn't back to running yet, but the fuse isn't blowing anymore. That can only be good.
So I'm in for dyno-day too.

lolololol you're lucky. My friends 370z (may be coming to the dyno) had a o2 sensor issue and fried the ecu. $2600 repair bill. Glad you found out the issue was, always a good feeling.

Bring your bicycle, dyno you leg powers! Also the shop can dyno motorcycles if you want to do that too. I think he said $40-50 for motorcycles.

I'm going and there's about 11 people on facebook who say they're going. I don't know if anyone checked the facebook group but basically it turned into a ***** pissing and moaning about how it was to expensive. Whatever, one less d bag we don't need there.

In other news: I'm getting nervous. I've run up to 15psi (I'm now at 9.5 when it's, hot 11 when its cold). I really don't want my engine to come home in a bucket.

Tomorrow will be my first major test-drive after things are finally coming together. So far so good. Still got an unidentified oil-leak and cooling is not all that great, but I'll risk it. Need to tune EBC via MS before Saturday.
Wife thinks I'm crazy, but I'm going. AAA membership is up-to-date :-)

Todd: Still interested in that secondary O2 simulator....

Stefan, sorry I didn't get back to you...I'll try to remember to bring it with. It's still in my car, but its not doing anything as my stock ecu isn't even plugged in.
As far as your EBC...I tried to tune mine at the drag strip...it was a bitch. Kept fluxuating between 7 and 11 psi. I only ran a 13.90 and was disappoint. F that EBC, I run manual or wastegate now. It's simple, and it works really easily.
Pat, try to get your AFR's at 11.5 Reguardless of temp. I think I ran 11.8 on my car when I dyno'd.

Made it to work today (20 miles, mostly interstate). No overheating! Boosted up to 7psi and revved to 7k a few times. AFRs are nice and stable, if not yet quite perfect. VEAL rules!
I think I have some pinging going on, so I retarded timing 3 degrees pretty much across the board. Let's see, but so far I'm still on track!

Sorry I meant psi, which is wrong though. When I was retuning it was raining so I wasnt brave enough to mash it and only it hit 9.5psi. WOT I sit around 11.5 or 11 psi. I sit right under 12:1 afr which I'm pretty happy with.

It looks there's only going to be 3 miatas there.

Just wanted to let you know that I will be going, but I will be a little late. It's 2.5 hours drive for me. Leaving at 6:30 on a Saturday morning is NOT my thing...
