There are actually many extra resistors if you look on the back. The big empty spot is a prototype area. The other ones are missing because i didn't do the VR circuit and because MSnSE requires the others to be gone. Some are only needed for MSII so i left them out too. I'm not "missing" any really.

Has someone documented the Miata specific build so we don't waste our time on un-necessary stuff?

Yeah, who knows this might not work out for us. Guess we'll soon find out though.

If I was gonna do it again I would socket it just like you have and still use the USB adapter.

The actual wiring it up is easy though.
For anyone that's interested... the RS232 that comes with the kit is a 12 pin. You won't find any 12 pin sockets at radioshack... all they have is 6 and 8 pin sockets. However, 2X 6-pins put back to back will work flawlessly, that's how I handled it.

Thanks for correcting that. I hadn't read the USB adapter install untill after i soldered the RS232 in. Wasn't real happy once i went to radioshack and found they had the 6 pins which as you said could have been used.

Yeah there are all kinda of options. If i end up wanting to use the DB9 port for some weird reason i'll just rejumper the connections i cut, not bad, but definitely other/better ways of setting up the USB adapter.
