Default NB2 ABS Wiring Question

Been searching this for a while, but couldn't find anything specifically about the NB2. I am contemplating adding ABS to my 02 at some point, currently just doing research. I would think adding NB2 ABS to a NB2 should be easier than a NB1 or NA.

Has anyone on here added ABS to an NB2? Did Mazda use different wiring harness for cars based on whether or not they had ABS? I have seen threads suggesting that the NB1 possibly had the some of the wires in the car regardless of whether or not it was equipped with ABS. Basically just wondering if I will be doing all the wiring from scratch or will some of it already be in the car?

Thanks!!

It's going to be much easier to build your own harness for the ABS by itself than to transplant the one from the donor car, so unless you're building for a class where you need to use OEM parts then that's what I'd suggest. It only interfaces to the rest of the harness in a few places.

Thanks, I had a feeling that would be the case. I had looked through that thread, but wasn't sure if the NB2 would be the same level of work as a NB1. I'll probably move adding ABS down the priority list, plenty of other things to address in the meantime.

It sounds scary, but the DIY wiring is actually one of the easier parts of the job.

NB2 is the easiest of the ABS units to install. I am doing one in a 94 now and just doing a DIY harness. The earlier models have the ECU separate from the ABS pump which makes for a more difficult wiring job.

Hold up, we are working on a kit to install Teves Mk60 ABS units from the 2004-06 BMW M3's into Miata's. If you want a near motorsport quality ABS but don't want to pay Bosch M4/5 prices, we should have a solution soon.
