Are you assembling it or did you buy it preassembled. If you are assembling it then the BEST advice I can give you is to scrub the **** out of it with acetone with a toothbrush when you are done. This solve like 80% of my initial problems. Apparently the solder flux can short out components. If bought it preassembled then you're basically 90% of the way to having your car running on it. It's actually much more simple than I thought it would be. Welcome to the club.

thanks!

i bought the kit almost finished from another mx5 guy. it is tested and working so far, and there is only a bit of soldering to do to finish it off. hopefully i'll have it finished and installed in the next few weeks.
