Default MSLabs MS3 Enhanced 01-05

Hi all,

Here we have a barely used MSLabs MS3 Enhanced 01-05 ECU. Purchased last year and I've plugged it in a few times, started the car, but have yet to put any miles on it. I initially bought it with plans of adding a Rotrex (I know we are mostly snail lovers here ). Reality set in and I think I'm going to free up some funds and get more track time under my belt first.

Nothing wrong with this unit, everything to my knowledge works great. There are a number of differences between the MSLabs Basic and Enhanced models, but one reason I picked this up over the Basic was the OBD2 port. The box will not send smog readiness codes, but can provide a lot of the other usual OBD delivered data.

Asking $950 shipped in the CONUS with everything you see here, plus a serial cable and some vacuum hose.

Does this have stock maps for naturally aspirated cars? I ask because I have an NA miata that came with a VVT BP that I'm trying to get up and running.

you need to match the ms to the car year, not the engine.

The ecu has a stock map to get a normally aspirated vvt engine running. You'll still need to tune to ensure it works past initialt start and idle.
I'm not sure if you can / can't run a NA Miata with a ecu with pin outs for an nb2. I leave that to the more knowledgeable here

Your ECU and harness need to match what's on the car. So if you have an NA8 with a VVT motor, you still need the NA8 ecu and harness unless you want to redo the cars harness.
