Looking good Paul. Hope you get your wiring sorted soon. Let us know if you need a hand mate.

Thanks!
It all seems to be alive just no feed to starter. AFAIK that is likely clutch interlock or starter relay earth. If I could find the starter relay that would help :lol:

So contrary to every wiring diagram ... except the Haynes one that was correct :roll: the immobiliser does control the starter motor on the UK late Mk2.5s as I found out from tracing the relay. Then I found out that the 2 wires by the ignition barrel were not the "key left in alarm" but the immobiliser chip reader and 10 minutes after I found that out.... It's ALIVE! :lol:

Great news mate. Well done! Just need to bundle the rest of the loom in a water proof box and put the seats back in.

Went from this

Few bits left over

Had a stressful few hours when it would not run - found a more accurate wiring diagram and realised I had managed to not install an earth for the main relay coil!

Running fine after I hooked up the speed sensor. Not even directly connected to the ECU but gets shirty if it is not there. Going to be a sod to get it to work if the ECU needs it to run properly...

A bit of lateral thinking re the speedo (the MX5 VSS is gearbox driven) I can use the ABS sensor off the 944 back end as the sensors/ring came with it - that is a VR type sensor. Then I think I can use one of these http://www.dakotadigital.com/index....c ... prd126.htm to make it output 8000 pulse/mile based on the wheel diameter, then feed that into the instrument cluster, give it a really hot cup of tea and I should have both speedo and ECU input.
