We're getting right to work on the 94-95, the real work will begin as soon as I actually buy the car, as I decided the first time around it's probably better just to buy one, do the work, keep it around for a while, drive the crap out of it, and oh yeah, maybe sell it one day .

I'm shopping now. I can't give you a solid date as once I do you'll hold me to it -- But I'm going to make it happen as quickly as possible, and on paper it looks like it will come together pretty quickly based on all the work we've do so far. The case doesn't have to change which is a big deal, we have tons of connectors in stock so there will be no leadtime issues there. Those were the big issues the first time around. This time will be a cakewalk compared to round 1.

I'll update you guys as it progresses...


As for 3.57, it is like 90% surface mount, meaning there is better quality control on the assembly and better vibration resistance as well. It also has a much improved idle control circuit that is loads better than the TIP12x solution in my experience. It gives you a broader range of idle speed control, much more like what the stock ECU offered on a Miata.

Other than that the whole board was looked over, a few bits were updated here and there where it made sense. Outputs were made easier to get to on the board, etc. Most of that doesn't directly effect the MSPNP user though...

Have you got any plans to offer an "upgrade module" when MS2/Extra is released?

Nothing official yet-- though it's possible. We'll have to go through and see if the I/O changes, or any other circuitry. If not it may be as simple as dropping in the MS2 processor, flashing the code and building a map. If that's not the case we'll just have to see what it will take...

I think I'm going to spring for this if I have the cash and it's available when I order the ECU in a month or so. Not being required to dick with open/closed loop, being able to switch back to stock ECU cleanly and easily, and the updated, more robust board are all pros.
