Will it work: Yes.
Is there a large knowledge base that supports it and has experience with it: No

Thank you and if I just read the manuals and learned like everyone else and took my times things shouldn't be to difficult eh?

Hi All,
Does anyone have pictures of the actual wiring in of the resistors for the distributor pull ups needed by MS? I just want to see how it should look. I have seen plenty of wiring schematics.

Thanks

What MS variant, on what year Miata?

it is actually a 94 MX-3 but with a 1.8 BPT from Japan and Dizzy I think is either from Japan or 1.8 pull. Diyauto has told me it is the 4g63 setup so I am just trying to figure out how the 2 pull resistors really wire in. I would love to grimp in the resistors but I am suspecting this might be a solder job. I got tired of fighting my New Zeland ECU with who knows what VAF for getting the tunning right for the past 10 years so time for the MicroSquirt. I should be plugging into the car this weekend. I have a set and spare set of ls2 red truck coils from ebay. Will be running wasted spark. Microsquirt wiring harness to dizzy plug.

Any advice and really a picture or 2 of the unwrapped but already connected resistors would really be great. DIYauto also said to find 1/4 resistors, they didn't mention any other specs for the resistors. I have bags of resistors to choose from.

Thanks

Can anyone school me on how Reverant's MS3 solution is different ( if it is ) than Braineack's MS3 ?

I'm trying not to bother Rev with too many question today and also want to get different inputs / point of views.

Thanks.

Braineack builds standard MS3X's that you would get if you followed the MegaManual to build a MS3. Reverant uses the main MS3 board, and then designed his own expander board with his own circuits and such for all the extra features.

Sorry to bump this thread, but I was looking at differences between the MSPNP PRO and the MS3X DIY PNP (aka brain's unit). They're functionally the same in a different box right? Both built on the MS3 board?

Looks like the MSPNP PRO also plugs directly into the stock harness as well?

For all intents and purposes they are the same. The pro just has the MS3 chip built into a mainboard and expander board all in one layout. They also use a some slightly different more robust circuits then an standard MS3X. It also has the knock module and RTC built in, verse having to add those to a MS3X.

The MSPNP Pro uses a board based on the MS3Pro - the short version is that it was almost a clean slate design where we looked at each circuit to see if it had room to be made more efficient, reliable, or reduce electrical noise. In addition to having knock input standard, we've given the MSPNP Pro built in peak and hold injector outputs, and keep them in stock ready for immediate shipping (worst case if you order at a really bad time is that it may take our solder tech 1-3 days to catch up).

Do you also provide phone support for the mspnppro? Or is that just the ms3pro and ultimate.

So basically, the bold is that only feature unique to the mspnp pro relative to the 3x. Otherwise, it's the same unit from a functionality standpoint, but it's engineered to be more efficient since the board is built specifically for this purpose. Correct?

Thanks! I was just trying to understand this stuff as I learn more about megasquirt and my unit in particular.

Depending on how a DIY MS3 is built, it may or may not have knock input.

Sorry, I should have specified. My (brain) unit does.

Thanks for the info Matt. Hopefully this helps someone else in the future as well.
