I understand your reasoning Joe for the department store bike, and after all your efforts I'm sure it's a decent commuter... But I can't be the only one thinking this.. Is such a cheap bike worth all the effort? I mean, have you found it to be worth the effort?

I know when I was a kid we all rode cheap Bikes, everywhere, and rode the crap out of them. I maybee had three different ones throughout my childhood, and all I remember doing is replacing tires and occasionally lubing the chain and that's it.. I guess combination of single speed and coaster brake means it can take abuse.

Bump.

I have MSPNP Pro, am I going to have to follow this in order to have oil temp and pressure readouts? Did you still have your readouts in the gauge cluster?

There is no gauge cluster oil temp. As long as you don't remove the stock pressure sender you will still have it. But if your car is 94.5 or newer its a fake readout anyways.

Should've been less vague. Merely referring to the pressure readout on the dash. So there's a definite benefit beside having the gauge in the TunerStudio. That's what I was wondering.

Also the temp readings for coolant are "fake" too right? I hear lots of conflicting info from various people at meets that say their temp guages are worthless and then I hear it only affects people with the NA.

It's not linear. There are ways to linearize it.

So I've heard. I wish there were ways to search and get results back that highlighted where it detected your keywords. Being a newbie these days is tedious as hell.

I built an Arduino based linearizer a while ago. Others have done similar things. Schematic is in this thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/megasquir...-values-74383/

Good looking out. If I had one of those last year I might still have my car running.

Make a warning light. My check engine light is set to turn on when things get too hot.

I'll probably drill a hole in the gauge cluster so I don't confuse my CEL for something else. Did you just have it on a relay or was that something you programmed in MS?

The megasquirt controls the check engine light. So set it for whatever you want.

I control it with the megasquirt.

Sweet. How hard do you think it would be to add an auxiliary light control option? I doubt it would be difficult, I noticed some folks have shift lights controlled my megasquirt. Haven't been able to use any of the tools yet because my whole kit is sitting at the machine shop where my engine is.

Not hard. Read the manual. It explains everything.

No different than the attitude coming from someone who didn't read the part where I said "all of my Megasquirt stuff is at the shop with my engine block"

Plus aidan was an adult about it unlike stefanst. That being said, it's the Internet and everyone is more confident about being a dick toward other people for no reason so I didn't take it personally when I was told to "read the ******* manual" from someone who didn't even bother to spell it out. They get an emoji in return, everyone goes on their merry way. Judging by the attitude of some tenured posters I'll fit in just fine lol.
