Default need to know some thing about the MS ECU

what have been the higher numbers of horse power that you guys have seen with the mega squirt ECU's

i have a 91 miata with my own turbo kit the runs great but it don't have enough fuel

so i cant really get on it that much i was thinking about getting the MS stand alone for it but i wanted to know whats the highest numbers you guys have seen on this unit


any input would be great

and thanks in advance

Use periods, commas, capitalization, apostrophes, and follow basic grammar rules the best you can if English is your first language.

Oh, your questions show ignorance, your fuel or hp potential isn't limited by the computer.

Blue Turbo, The MS does not limit hp. It is not a Voodoo Box, or PCpro. It is a full standalone and will meet whatever hp goals you throw at it. Of course as your injectors get larger, MS may have a tough time controlling them at idle, but it doesn't seem to be a problem for anyone here so far with using 550cc/min injectors.

trying to find out some info and you gotta talk smack.

if the ECU is limited to a point of tuning how does it not have to do with the HP,& fuel

im just trying to find out what the higher number's seen using that ECU

but thanks for being rude

Four hundred seventy three decimal onethreesevensixnine horsepower. That's the maximum hp a MegaSquirt can support before you break the solders on the V3.0 board. Hence, the new V3.57 board is capable of approximately sixhundred ninety one decimal twotwothreesevenone HP.

If it can control a 1000+ hp studebaker then it's enough for me.

ummmm......what the hell are you smoking? since when doesn't the MS allow more HP to be produced? granted his original question can't be simply answered because there are far too many variables involved. but to state that HP goals aren't limited by the ECU shows much "ignorance".

get your head out of your *** before you start giving people a hard time.

On a Miata? Probably only 350-400 HP or so. Beyond that you'd probably break the crankshaft.

Here's the deal: For any given turbocharger setup on any given engine, you need to be sure you can throw enough fuel at it. On a lot of setups (Voodoo, PcPro, eManage, AFPR, etc) there is a limit to how much fuel that device can deliver. Either it can't achieve enough fuel pressure, or it can't control injectors above a given size. Because of that, the fuel delivery system becomes the limiting factor on how much power you can make.

With Megasquirt, there is no limitation whatsoever on the size of injectors you can run. You could have four 1,000 cc injectors on the two main channels, plus another set of four 1,000 cc injectors as secondaries on the WI channel. That setup would give you enough fuel to do about 1,400 HP at the crank, which is more than you will ever be able to achieve with any turbocharger on any Miata engine. In other words, the Megasquirt is not the limiting factor.

My personal advice? Read: http://tinyurl.com/23w8uk

I don't see how the MS can limit HP on a 4 cylinder engine. As long as the supporting components are sized correctly, the MS will not be the limiting factor in hp. Fuel, displacement, etc. can be the choke point though. I believe that PatsMX5 just took the OP question too literal. I hope the OP meant something more along the lines of what maximum hp levels can the Miata achieve using the MS along with X, Y, and Z components.

Ok, you got me there. In the context of miatas (you know, what we are talking about, miataturbo, etc), any particular standalone ECU is not gonna 'limit' hp, which is an odd statement. Better said maybe they don't support it, as in they can't support some aspect of tuning that would be required above a certain parameter. I'm pretty sure any standalone ECU for our miata will be fine for his car without limiting his HP.

No, I give people a hard time when they deliberately FAIL to use an form of grammar or ask a question that is elementary, or in his case all of the for mentioned. This ain't miata.net, we don't spoon feed everybody that can't do ANY research on their own.


To make this useful, blue turbo mx5, go check out a website caled DIYautotune.com. They sell MS's and have a lot of great info on them. There is a lot to learn for sure. I don't know much about them either, but I'm learning. Look for the "megamanuals", they're like the bible on MS.

If you want to make more than 200whp, send me your MS unit and I'll adjust it for up to 500whp. Only $100 plus shipping charges. I prefer paypal.

Don't listen to this scammer; he just puts an extra resistor on the CLT sensor input so the car thinks it is colder than it really is!

If you want more than 243.87hp, install a turbonator and PC-Pro.

Uhm, BlueTerbo, have you ever driven a car which made 450 HP and yet weighed only 2,100 lbs?

In all seriousness, what is your intended application for this vehicle? If it is anything other than a pure dragstrip-only queen (or maybe a Bonneville Flats runner) then I'm sorry, but you're nuts.

he wants to be able to tell all his friends he has 450hp.

i was in my daily driver the other day. stopped to get gas. the attendant asks me if it's a monster miata. dumbass asked because it's striped. I tell him no, it's basically stock as far as the motor goes but i have another at home that makes over 300 to the crank. he then starts telling me about his Monster Miata with a chevy big block. Now to look at this guy you can tell he would never be found in anything other than a domestic and certainly not something as gay as a miata. he continues to blather on about the car. then he says its got 900hp to the wheels! Next he says its a 6 second car! Then he says its street legal! Then he says it's a 99! I left there knowing my daily driver is most likely faster than anything he drives (except maybe his Harley).
