I saved a few of the pictures from the site, but they weren't the most recent before it was taken down.

I have all the wiring diagrams, but he had updated them for the ms3x wiring bundles colors, which was nice.

we should just ban him until he brings it back. i swear that will work.

I only say non-frank stuff meaning things that he exclusively created. If I can find multiple sources for the information on forums and can verify it's accuracy (part #, cases of it actually working, wiring diagram, etc..) I plan to use it.

I have so many pictures from my MS3x build, and wiring diagrams, etc.. although it's all 93' specific, it could come in use. I created my own MS3x updated wiring diagrams and pin outs based on what I found from the Mazda wiring diagrams.

I plan to focus on MS3x for the site I was planning. Explanations of the wiring diagrams, modifications, copious pictures, etc... But if there is time I'd like to expand it.

I copied this off the sight here a lil while back.

Hopefully it can serve to help someone else out.

This may also help with 96-97 guys. It's the corrected one I sent to Frank after editing BRAIN'S diagram that he put up on the site, which was actually for an ms2. Verified to work

keep posting MY random documents; it will really help out.




BMX, what did you fix on MY wiring diagram that you sent to Frank? I made that ******* diagram, why not come to ME if there was a mistake with it and not try to pretend like you made it and got Frank to add it?

Also, I see nothing corrected on it, the sensor ground and chassis ground on 1O and 3O are still incorrect; just as I made it.

He should ban everyone and just roam the site posting aimlessly. Growing a long beard would help the image.

Scott remember when one of your diagrams was off by a pin and I told you. Let's hug.

lol brain, too funny. maybe you should correct it? It was on his site for who knows how long, at least a year? meaning people who used it have been doing it wrong :(

All I did for the one I edited was take Frank's picture he had up (he didn't give you any credit, get butt hurt), which was only for MS2. He said he didn't have one up since he never dealt with a 96-97 and I had to build one, so I was like, since I use his site so much, might as well try to contribute? It was up to him if he was going to add it or not after checking it, or have someone check it

I dont understand what you are saying. Are you saying you made the diagram I made or not?




I contributed with Frank because I didn't feel like writing up another how-to and he already started one (it's so easy anyway my write up would have been like 5 sentenses and a few documents). I handed him over my documents and basemaps, and we would let each other know about any "lessons learned" that came up. I've always published I do everything; it's no secret.

The one BMX posted is my document (I have the native Illustrator file), I know Frank eventually edited them to show the OEM wiring harness colors instead of the DIY wiring loom colors I used, so maybe BMX meant to post one of those.

As far as the sensor and chasis ground being wrong on that diagram, it's not going to make or break you so long as you're not grounding the expander board to it, and you wouldn't following it. Otherwise, it doesn't matter, it's just the labeling really.

But while we are posting documents, might as well post teh rest of the model years:

ok, then you made it because I cut and paste all of the stuff in the right place for the 96-97, which isn't the right place? oh and I used good ole' paint for editing it with whatever the default font it had

The diagram on his site was for an ms2 and still had batch fuel on it. I cut and paste text and colors from the 94-95 and put them in the correct places, except for the obvious error you spotted (EDIT: that FRT_Fun spotted). If you decide to take it down, so be it. If that inner part where the actual pinout labels are are yours, then I'll take it down and make another from scratch. Just let me know if that's what you're pretending to be butthurt about

My site is back and it's staying. We have put too much time and effort in it to let it disappear because of a miserable piece of crap.

Any and all information I have from my current build will be free to use/steal/modify/laugh at/etc...

Frank are you still planning to add info? Like if I have stuff that may be of use to you would you like me to send it your way? Obviously this would be drama free, don't care how you use it, info.

I can't actually find the native file for that document, so maybe you really did. I have that same jpg in my files and it was on boostedmiata.com, but I don't actually have the .ai file like I have of all the other model year ms1, ms2, and ms3x harness diagrams I've built.

I swear I made one for the 9697. I have even one printed out here I use (all my documents are printed when I build). Sine it looks exactly like my others and I can't remember I got all umadbro.

But since I can't prove beyond a reasonable doubt I actually made that 9697 ms3x harness diagram, that your attached file is actually larger in dimension than the one I have, and I might be a complete moron, I withdraw all my anger and finger pointing and cordially bow out. hugs.

It takes a big man to admit and fix a public mistake and that's all I'm going to say and I'm going to leave you with a thank you.
