Default BoomSlang and Meqasquirt PigTail Examples

Does anybody have any examples of their work they can post up? I would like to do this as neat as possible and am looking for examples of how others have tied in their MS pigtail into the boom slang. Since this cost $100, I want to keep it as pretty as possible.

Thanks,

Adam

Old pic from when I made mine in 2007. Switchbox is to swap between stock computer and Megasquirt for fuel and spark control.

I remember those days of using switches to go back and forth. I had mine in my car for like a year before I got rid of them.

Why do this? What are you keeping in the stock ecu that can't be managed by a ms2 or ms3?

Also back in the first half of 07 using megasquirt on a miata was still something that was new. So a lot of people were using switches so that they could start with just controlling fuel and once they got the hang of it then add in spark.

4 switches for the injectors, 2 switches for the ingition coils.

I am not sure if you were the trend setter or not. Did you run the KingofL33t spark mods on your original MS?

@240, I loved the Merkur in high school and college. It was pretty cool car back in the day. I actually saw one at the track last year (not driving, visiting).
