Question Who else is running a 1.8L w/ the msPNP

Just curious cause i just installed mine and was using the base map included w/ the msPNP for a 1.6L w/ afm. I changed the req fuel and left it at that for now. Will hopefully get a good bit of data logging tomorrow. Any suggestions would be nice so i can make it run better. 94 engine w/ jackson cold air intake on 89 octane.

That's cool. Install your IAT sensor so you can pull the AFM.

Did you rewire the msPNP you got? I am pretty sure the fuel wires are diffrent on the the 94 the the 90-93. I am confused how you got the msPNP working on the 94. Also you probally want to use premium fuel, 89 octane might cause ping with their spark tables.

I'm pretty sure he has a 1.8 in a 90-93. That should still be esentially PNP.

the wiring harnesses are totally different in a 1.6 and a 1.8. the 1.6 PNP couldn't possibly be a PNP for a 1.8.. is that what we're talking about?

YES, but it's entirely possible to run a 1.8 motor off 1.6 electronics in a 90-93. IE transplant a 1.8 into an originally 1.6 car. If the stock ecu runs it, there's no reason why an aftermarket ecu wouldn't.

No, I wouldn't expect the 1.6 PNP to work in a 1.8 car.

I didnt think of the 1.8 swap. That would make sense to why the mspnp work. I wish the OP would respond.

Yeah, that's funny because that wouldn't be the first thing I think of. If someone says 1.8, then I think 94-97

my bad. I'm
