TE lists distributors on their website, but I've not had the best of luck getting it to load for all products:

Ballenger Motorsports: https://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/pr...oducts_id/3454

They carry all kinds of other Miata connectors too. I purchased a connector that is essentially the MAF receptical for the the MAF plug, so I can connect to the IAT wires in a nice clean manner: https://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/pr...oducts_id/4324

Also a connector that plugs up to the stock coil connector, so my GM coil harness will be plug and play: https://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/pr...oducts_id/4160

I also bought my GM coil connectors from them, along with connectors that mate up to the EGR plug and the EGR solenoid plugs, so I can use those wires for other purposes without cutting or de-pinning. Their site has a nice feature where if you find a connector that is the existing connector you have, and you want the other side of it (the receptacle to match the plug) they have a section showing "associated and mating parts".

Ballenger is a good last stop but they're awfully expensive.

$7.49 for the MAF receptacle connector kit, including pins and seals, or $8.99 for the assembled connector as a pigtail, and they offer plain USPS shipping for like 3 or 4 bucks. Where can you find it for less?

Ballenger is good, but nearly everything they put together is available for cheaper elsewhere if you know the part numbers.

I think we have a large enough community that we should be able to put together a bill of materials for every connector on the car. This would allow the community to buy them from allied, mouser, digikey, waytek wire, etc.

If I start a gitlab repository is that something that others would be willing to contribute to? Are you familiar with git and github/gitlab?

There is already a giant multipage thread in another section with a ton of that info.

This thread is what's being referred to I believe. It can take quite a bit of digging sometimes as the search function isn't the best. Google helps occsionally

I needed to make a reference for my own project anyway, so I went ahead and made it public. Feel free to add issues, comments, pull requests:

I'm liking the lists huesmann and Shuiend are talking about, allow a person to use Google to keep up with changing vendors as parts come and go.
