The variable tps is just a variable resistor. You can use the existing wires as is. As for the specific bmw part that fits, either look around the forum, or I'll update the thread once I'm back at my puter

Default MS3X Guide

Firstly, thanks Frank and Brain for creating this guide that has my car running very nicely on MS3X.

Secondly, I hope I'm not treading on toes by posting this - just trying to help the community as the community has helped me so much!

Linked below is a MS Word Doc (including pictures) that I copied from http://westfieldmx5.devocht.com/mega...ms3/90-97-ms3/ (12/11/2013)

Does anyone happen to have the 01-05 guide that used to live here: http://westfieldmx5.devocht.com/mega...ms3/99-05-ms3/

I would provide a satisfying high-5 to anyone who can share it with me!

The pictures that were in the article are still available on the picassa link above. There is a picture of the MS3 board that he build that show pretty well the mods that have to be done. There is also a diagram of the MS3/MS3X to Miata harness that you can build if you dont want to cut your harness.

The diyautotune link below also describe the changes that you have to do to the MS3 board

Thanks p0staldude, that is helpful, but not quite high-5 worthy.
I think I could assemble the diy ms3 with a good set of step-by-step instructions (in fact, I think it would be a lot of fun) but I'd worry that I would get myself in trouble without them.

I'm sorry but all content is lost. I have not been able to find a backup. I don't even have a copy on paper anymore :(
Don't mind putting it back up if anyone has a copy / printout or anything of my site.

I have all of your 90-97 stuff. I'll link you it when I get on my computer. No idea about the 99-05.

That's tough!! I feel your pain having lost big chunks of work before. Thanks for your contribution to the community though!

I'm not an excellent geek, but according to google the webpage settings prevented the site from being saved on google servers. I don't know of any other cache service that ignores those requests, they are pretty universal.

And here is the 90-97 MS3

That should cover most of what people need.

Frank I can host on my page too if you want a backup, let me know if you would be ok with that.

Ahh, I saw it on m.net and decided to cross post it, did not look at who posted it or anything.
