Nice work, love the stand alone approach! Going to use a FAST unit?

Mercury Marine Coil packs is what they were intended for orginally. Now alot of aftermarket companies are using them as well as race teams. I know Huber's Mustang is or was running around 40psi with them and had no issues at all. They are something like 17amps each, I have two 25amp breakers running them out of sequential so they won't pop.

As Tom has said , I'm running a standalone. I can individually trim spark and fuel per cylinder, and with 4 widebands I can tune it very well.

Thanks, I'm using megasquirt. I was orginally using ms2 on a modified 3.57 board. I'm now running ms3x with a expansion board. The expansion board is for these widebands, VSS, oil pressure..etc (misc inputs). Although I had it installed before, I'm in process or re-doing the entire standalone install. I wasn't happy with how I had wired it previously. Made my own engine loom and all.

Here is a picture of the header installed.

and the engine loom I made: (clear isn't shrinked yet, need to label wires then shrink them)

Thanks, I need to pin the bulkhead connector on the loom and also mount the ALT/make a tensioner bracket. Then I can drop the engine in. Tensioner won't be a big deal but the bulkhead connector will be @ 1.05 a terminal on a 50 pin connector :(

Yep Miata has alot of support for megasquirt, I'm pretty sure diyautotune has a miata they toy with.

I'm very interested in the standalone setup particularly.....I have more than one project in mind that would make way more sense to use megasquirt on a focus engine, but so few have done it and logged what worked/didnt work that I'm afraid to go into it blind.
