Yah, Im looking at MS-II now. Most of the information I'm finding is either for NA's or its MS-I on an NB, so its all a bit confusing.

The fundamentals are the same.

However, https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t35601/

FYI- you don't have to go full-tilt-boogie on a standalone (thus requiring alternator control and such.) If you want, you can do a parallel install, with the MS driving only the injectors and ignition, while the stock ECU runs the idle, alternator, VICS, etc.

Ah okay, So essentially I would be tapping the MS into all the sensors I need and having it control only fuel and spark.

What makes it even better is I already have a Boomslang Patch harness, and I have a friend who makes a profession of making custom harnesses and and tuning, so hopefully we can make it work.

Just got me a new set of wheels. I really like them, they have kind of an oldschool look.
