Re: 93 1.6l Miata stock engine (for now)

Just an update:
The car is driving very well on rusefi now. Either with the built-in MAP sensor, of just the stock AFM (MAF mode). Idle is fairly stable. AC and all other things one would expect, work.

It's time to sell!
Anybody in need of a rust-free 1993 NA6 Miata in classic red?

Suggested Idle Improvements

Quick summary: We currently have two idle modes- manual and automatic. Manual is "pick a value and leave it". Automatic employs an adjustable PID strategy. For most modern-ish street-driven cars, automatic will be needed. The implementation has improved considerably over the last few months. But the...

What pin on the main connector are we adding the Pull-down resistor (as seen in the pictures) to and what it the pulldown resistance?

Re: MREAdapter48 pnp Miata MX5 NA

The board seems to be a success indeed. I went for several longer rides without any issues. We have a working tune using MAP and a somewhat working tune (needs a better spark table) for running MAF. Idle compensation (closed loop idle) seems to begin working as well. The engine hasn't self-stalled i...

Ha, there is a crazy idea to actually drive that EGR solenoid since we have outputs! That would be low side pin 3D.
But opening EGR will rob you of power. DON"T DO IT!

Nice setup. Do you have any VD pulls? There's a guy near me who keeps supercharging NA Miatas (and subsequently blowing them up) and the torque curves he gets are just hilarious.

@stefanst, how many millimetres off are we?
Not sure how far we're off, but the connector should be in the exact center between the front mounting holes (PCB to case, approx 120mm apart). That would mean approx 17.5mm from each PCB mounting hole.

Re: red 2003 VVT test mule Miata NB2 #27

It may be a voltage issue. NB Miatas have a weird signal-inversion behavior during cranking, especially when cranking more slowly. Cranking drops the voltage and that may cause some funkiness with the sensor. Try a bigger/newer battery? If one is not at hand, run separate power for the sensors (12V ...

Yes perfect Miata time.
I'm tidying up the routing on the board (a few days), there is approx 12-14 days from ordering to delivery, add the dropshipping time to that and you have it. I will update design status as often as possible.

Re: red 2003 VVT test mule Miata NB2 #27

The NB2 does have a "boost sensor". NB1 has it as well, as far as I know. I don't remember how the air-side of this sensor is connected though. If I understand correctly, It is used to ensure that the EGR solenoid is opening correctly and exhaust gas makes it into the intake. The assumption is that ...
