Default MSM Test Car Needed!

DIYAutoTune.com is looking for a MazdaSpeedMiata test vehicle to aid in our development of a new model MSPNP EMS. We're looking for a 04-05 MSM in overall good to excellent condition, with working a/c, brakes, transmission, etc. Stock to mostly stock preferred. Standard mods such as intake, exhaust, and intercooler upgrades are fine, but we're not looking for a car with hard core engine modifications. Wiring harness must be in excellent condition. No wire tucks.

What we need:
Use of the car for 2-3 days for prototyping before we spin the board. 6-8 weeks later, we'll need to borrow the car again, for an additional 2-3 days for final install and documentation. The car can be left at our shop during the down time, or it can be picked up and dropped back off later. Our shop is located in Suwanee, GA or appx 30 mins NE of Atlanta.

What you get in return:
-A special deal on the new MSPNP EMS
-Full dyno tune, with ECU custom mapped to YOUR car
-The satisfaction of knowing you helped out the general MSM community by providing the MSM test vehicle

If you have a MSM that you would like to volunteer for this program, please contact us at:

Sister lives near atlanta. I'd make the drive but I can't leave the car for that long. You should post this on mazda-speed.com I'm sure there's locals willing to help.

Unfortunately, it's only of use still attached to a solid, running Mazdaspeed.

Well my car pretty much fits this exact description. '04 with intake, throttle body, MBC (pretty worthless at the moment), intercooler going in right now and nothing else.

The only problem is that I'm in the Midwest and Atlanta is quite a drive.

Roughly 60 days after a test car is dropped off.
