Re: 1991 Miata NA6

Hi jpauten! Welcome to rusefi. Your project should be fairly straightforward. What are your power / boost goals? What hardware are you using? Any other mods to the engine? The GM-style MAP sensors should work well. The cheap eBay/Amazon aftermarket units are a bit hit or miss apparently. I had a few...

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 ...

Re: rusEFI display

What I don't know is how they get zeroed when you turn off the ignition. Is the dash getting constant power from the room fuse? I mean the fuel gauge can stay where it is, but all the other ones, especially the tach should probably get zeroed with shutting down ignition.

Re: rusEFI display

I think these steppers usually self-zero during startup. You start the power to the dash and they go a few steps negative to zero against the hard stop.
The above referenced steppers are what's used in most OEM dashs. They are designed for instrument use.

Re: red 2003 VVT test mule Miata NB2 #27

Simple observations: Your MAP calibration is off. Should be around around 100kpa before cranking. 30 also seems low while running at 1800rpm or so. AFRs are super-rich. Lean that out. It may help drop the idle a bit. If idle stays high, hold something (your hand?) in front of the throttle plate. Blo...

Welcome to rusefi! Looks like you're running a weld-el manifold with a chinacharger? Can't see your wastegate. What are youdoing for boost control? What injectors are you running? NB Miatas have fixed fuel pressure, so the more boost you're running the faster you run out of fuel on a stock injector....

Re: rusEfi needs v12

I think best use of W12 would be to de-stroke to maybe 3.5l, ITBs, super-hot cams. Make it revv 12,000rpm and swap into Miata.

2.54mm vs 2.5mm over ten columns is 0.4mm. Hardly noticeable. So the footprint may be wrong and possibly should be fixed in future revisions, but it hardly matters in real life.
