Default Where can I find the center connector for the MSPNP?

I have a busted-*** '92 to swipe parts from, but I can't find the center connector. I want to hook up the KnocksenseMS and the LC-1 before I start the car next week.

i've never got to post an rtfm post before but...

Quote:
Pin Number Connection
1 through 8 Breakout header
9 Electronic boost control
10 Alternate O2 Sensor Input (for wideband o2)
11 Input for KnockSenseMS knock box
12 Launch Control Input
13 Clutch Switch connection for launch control
14 through 16 Not Used

Section four provides information on wiring up pins 1 through 8.
Note that this middle connector is unfortunately not yet available to us to include in the initial MSPNP shipments—we’ll be knocking $20 off the retail price to accommodate for this until we can stock them which we are working on. Until then, you should be able to grab this from MANY junkyard Mazda’s from around the same era (90-2002ish). You’re looking for the 18pin wiring harness connector, and you want to cut it off with some wire attached that you can tap onto. We have these on order and will have them as soon as possible—it’s all about the lead-times…

I know what the pins do, but I can't find the actual connector on my parts car. The manual says you can get one off any 90-02 Mazda, but I can't find one in any obvious place on my wrecked '92.

it would have been nice if he gave more information the the right cars to source this part from but try a 323/protege or 626.

You can buy it from boomslang too. Or that onlinecomponents store. Do a search for '99 PNP harness on here, there was a thread with a couple stores that sell them.

DIY might carry them?

I read something somewhere that said the connector did not go out with the first batch of kits, but its going to be / is available...I need one too. I'd rather just ******* buy on for $10, rather than go trolling though a junk yard or buying one online that may be the right one.

Until you find one, you can wire knocksense into the clt lead and watch the data logs / led for knock, and tune it more conservatively I assume.

I need to hook my **** up soon, maybe this weekend. This **** is hard to do in a hotel parking lot though. Where are you hooking up the knock sensor?

I remember seeing a tutorial about a bolt under the intake manifold that's good to use.

I have a complete 2000 wiring harness I use for spare wires and stuff... If you can post pics of what the connector looks like I can see if it's on my harness.

Do you have the ECU side connector(s) (female) from a 94-95?

96+ Miata's have them-- it's the 16pin connector (used in the middle). We've got them on order but we're still waiting. The pins have come in but the connectors aren't here yet...

The maids probably think I'm running a theft ring. I have a ****-ton of turbo parts in the floor, a set of track wheels / tires, sometimes the hard-top, and all other kinds of **** in here.

I've been home 9 days ince October 6th, 2006. I left for Katrina on 9/4/05 and I've been home what I estimate to be 36 days since then. I'm so ******* ready to order a 60" hdtv and sit on my *** to use tivo with my dog for a couple weeks.

FYI, my 2000 wiring harness appears to only have 2 connectors, the same 2 as the 94.
