Default Westfield's additional circuits

I am putting together a MS3x following Westfield Mx5's guide and just finished part 1. In the parts needed there was a list of optional components for additional circuits and I was confused where they go. Some of the pictures show circuits in the proto area and some on other parts of the pcb.

what model year car do you have?

the only additional circuit I ever add is the alternator contorl if I'm doing a 99+

otherwise, the only mods I do inside the MS box is two flybacks for the idle and boost and VVT if applicable.

I'm always updating the instructions, so let me know what's not clear and I'll revise them.

Sorry, its a 97 Miata.
I was just worried because I have these extra parts sitting around that I though where for Spark, EBC, fan, vics, tacho, table switch, and launch control. I just wanted to clarify that either I don't need to put these parts on my board anywhere, or I already have made all the circuits I need and just didn't know.

all those are are located on your expander card. the point of it is to prevent having to build additional circuits.
