Gary
I'm wondering if you could help me out as we have got the same engine. My wiring diagram is showing a second data connection under the dash OBD2. My question is Do you have an OBD2 connection under your dash as I cant find one on my loom but I'm thinking I'm missing a bit of the dash loom with this connection on. I've been reading up on this and Mazda started to fix the OBD 2 on the mk2.5.

cheers Matt

arghhh, I don't have 2 of them, I seem to remember chopping a heap of wiring out that had one attached, and the other one had a load of abs related stuff going into it and I am pretty sure there were only a couple of wires left by the time I was done.
Sorry I cant be much more help, my mil light was on and no matter what I did it still glowed grinning like at me, so, not good practice I know, but there is a spare bulb in my tool box now . some one will probably tell me I'm not allowed to do this ... but I have

just back from the garage and it passed the emmissions BET test, headlights NOW correctly set and was reading 95Db at 3000 revs, but that needs to be checked at 4000 my fault as I trusted my memory (must be an age thing) so will do that again later on.
On another positive after sorting my sticky throttle cable it is so much easier to drive, 2.4 rack + supercharger power delivery certainly makes her a sprightly little beast
so a spring in my step today.....

thanks, I'm trying to go over as much as possible, edge trim, nut covers, things clipped down.... I think I'm getting paranoid.. lol
I guess the stress level will go up even more once I get a date confirmed

well put nut covers on today, trimmed a couple of edges that I found on the bottom of the headlight bracket, secured the heater/ header hoses onto the bulkhead sorted the radius on the trip button, was really worried about the viewing angles of my small front indicators so took them off and ordered a pair of '70's style chrome bulgy ones for the test so it should be ok on the 20 deg side view. ordered a new rad fan as mine looked untidy. and reset the rear brake adjusters now the handbrake holds like a good un.
So still to do; trim under dash in footwells, fit a new reverse switch as its playing up, pad steering wheel center, keep going over bits and pieces, found out I needed 2 odd size nut covers for the exhaust bracket so ordered them.
Does any one know the thread size of mx5 tre's as I have castellated nuts and would rather nylocs
