I designed this carrier board for the all Miatas / MX5s from 1990 up to 2005.
There is a board for all 90-97 cars (NA) and a board for all 99-05 cars (NB & NBFL), to be used with the DIY Autotune MS3 Pro module.
Usage is very simple, get the MS3 Pro Module, get this PCB and bolt the module to it. Install inside the oem case, ultimately ending up with a “MSPNP-PRO”.
Final cost is about the same as DIY built to the same level as the ms3pro but it has several advantages:
The difficulty in troubleshooting a non-standard build. Every problem requires an overview of your assembly first.
The robustness of the ms3pro is far better than a diy box.
Future proof HW setup, change the car and only change the harness.
You just plug in the MS3 Pro module and install the board inside the stock ecu case.
For clarity, the pcb is made for a standard MS3 Pro module, thus no modifications are necessary to the MS3 Pro or its firmware.
This board fits all NB versions, US, JDM and Euro market.
- usb connector
- pullup resistors for all in- and outputs
- proto area with gnd, 5V and 12V
- 3 stage shift light
- RS232 to TTL (for internal bluetooth module)
- CAN port
- map sensor MPX-4250AP
- 2nd map sensor for baro correction (MPX-4250AP or the MPXH6400A equivalent in SMD footprint)
- Bluetooth or WiFi
- 1 EGT circuit
- optional JBperf TinyIOx module
- optional accelerometer
- 3 VR conditioners circuits for ABS to Vss (for traction control and launch control)
- 2 Hi spec VR conditioners
- 4 ADC conditioners
- 2 active low input circuits
All unused in- and outputs can be brought out to the mazda connector in case you have extra functions.
All information is on the front and back silk to make it easier to do modifications. It’s just a matter of adding a resistor or a jumper.
1 board is $45 + $9 shipment
To order, Paypal the correct amount to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me if you have any questions. When ordering make sure to mention the type of board: “MS3 Pro Board for NA” or “MS3 Pro Board for NB”. You see, I also have boards for the MS3 CPU module, a mistake is easily made.
Remark to self:
On MegaSquirt, there’s only 2 different concurrent frequencies allowed across all pwm outputs. On the Pro Module they are grouped like this:
High Current Out 1
High Current Out 2
High Current Out 3
PWM (idle) out 1
PWM out 2
PWM out 3
What this sharing means is that Idle and VVT must use the same frequency.
By moving VVT to an output of group A, this allows for a different frequency.
