Added an adapter plate .stl file for those who have a 3D printer!
I don't have a 3D printer, anyone care to print one out and send it to me ?

TPS from automatic Mazda Protege LX 1990-94 is variable with almost identical (if I am correct) plugs. Will take some pictures of the one I got, I think the TB can be swapped all together for a almost stock install.

With the auto Pro TPS no need for splicing.

Instead of installing one from a BMW, etc...

I recognise that STL file. Might be nice if you credited me on your website.

Cheers.

Oh I registered a long time ago. I have just not needed to post before.

Thanks for stealing my work so that I had an excuse to post.

You dick.

In case anyone has missed the tragedy.....



I told you it was bad manners to rehost my work without a credit.

So you closed your site and said I had bad manners. So you even re-used that!

Have you ever had an original thought in your life?

In for BAN.

Dammit - Franks site was a Holy Grail for all the Megasquirt DIY builders.
Yes, Frank has collected some content that was not originating from him, but the value of knowledge in this collection in one place was almost invaluable...

I know Frank for a long time now and I don't think Frank would have had a problem to give you credits on his site - but not if he gets insulted...

I am by no means a short tempered guy - but FU Cerberus.

Just my two cents...

It's bloody sad this, Franks site was a brilliant resource for the budding MegaSquirt builder.

Both sides have massively overreacted IMO.

oh no not your content you posted online for everyone to freely access?!?

he hosted plenty of MY content. Most of the ms3 diagrams and even the basemaps were MINE. And I spent much longer than 3 days creating most my ****.

**** off.

To be honest, I had actually mentioned your name after your fair and correct comment here.
Why on earth would I mind saying 'I got the file from Cerberus' , whoever you may be, it's just another nickname on the internet. I don't even know your name.

But then I say your post count and figured 'where does this come from' and found you and your comment on Nutz.
That comment was in a whole different manner and like Sven said, I do not want to be insulted like that.

I am to old for this type of reactions behind my back.
The site is gone and will stay gone.

Damn shame to throw away all that hard work collating all that info and making it presentable over a bit of tit for tat over the internet.

It was a brilliant resource, I really hope you change your mind.

+1

I really hope too - I did come to this site ever so often if I needed any advice on the pinouts of the different years and all the MS wirings...
It would REALLY be a shame to put all this in the thrash-bin...

I still used to his site as a reference when building my stuff, because it's easier than searching through my own notes/folders.

I just got started on my MS research and the VTPS info was very helpful. Chrissakes can we all stop acting like children?

Hosting the content is a guarantee that it will always be there and available for people in one place. Links go away, files get deleted, **** happens, having a variety of sources for content on the web is a GOOD THING! That your online identity didn't get credit for making some piece of information is a really stupid thing to get pissy over.

That said, it's also stupid to just remove everything. Sorry, but it is, just throw some sort of credit up there for the STL file for the guy and call it a day. Or just remove the STL file! Why delete the whole thing?

hell, someone took everything I wrote here and made the miataturbo.wikidot.com page and it's been copied through a pleathura of miata sites.

now about 80% of the images are dead because I had hosted them and I lost my web server and have yet to put it all back up.
