Default Need help with boost control and knock sens

Hey,

I would like to add a few capabilities to my MS:

- Boost control
- Knock sens
- Hook my EGT guage to my MS

I need help in, what to get, how to install and how to setup in MS.

I would like to get this service for a payment.

Thank you.

Now that one would be a pain. You'd need a circuit like this:

MSnS-Extra Hardware Manual

On whichever analog input isn't being used for knock control.

Thanks Matt,

What knock sensor do I need to buy ?

Is there is any chance that you can sell me the EGT circuit ?

I got an autometer EGT gauge, can I take the reading from it ?

Auto Meter

Thanks again

Either a non-resonant design, or one that's tuned for the Miata.

Before I answer that, what exactly are you doing with the EGT readings?

Don't bother with the knock circuit, it won't work well enough to justify the time it takes to build it and wire it in. EGT is pretty cool to log, but that's about it.
