Taking it to the MAX?  Two great things that go great together on this Miata/MX5:
MSPNP Gen2 and MaxSpark PNP!!

MaxSpark PNP Ignition System for Miatas

The MaxSpark PNP High-Performance Ignition System for the Miata is the perfect pairing with this ECU!  We took the ultra-high performance IGN1A Ignition Coils, designed a bracket to mount these coils on the NA/NB Miata engines that fits these motors perfectly and looks good doing it, built a wiring harness that’s almost too pretty to tuck, but designed to tuck it is, and included plug wires as well.  It’s everything you need to quickly and easily install the hottest ignition system available on the market anywhere, for your Miata/MX5.

  • Super Easy PNP Installation.  Unbolt your factory or inferior aftermarket ignition system and bolt ours in place.  Plug it into factory connectors, connect high current power and grounds with pre-terminated terminals to the engine and fusebox (it’s easy), and you’re up and running.
  • Let’s be honest… the harness is just dead sexy.  And you can tuck it if seeing that sexiness is just too much to handle.  We understand.  😉
  • Use with the MSPNP Pro, the MSPNP2, the stock ECU, or even someone else’s ECU.  It just works.
  • Allows you to convert to Sequential Ignition if your ECU supports it!  (MSPNP Gen2 and Pro models do!)
  • Supports stock 12v power, or 16v aftermarket power common in some racecars!
  • Fits VVT cars, Fits RHD cars, clears all known strut tower braces including three point bars.

Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may write a review.

Where is this product assembled?

  • This product is assembled in Suwanee, Georgia, USA

I have swapped a different year engine, will this still work?

  • You must use the MSPNP that matches the year of the engine harness you are using.

Is this all that I need to get started tuning my Miata?

  • The only other potential must-have is that if your laptop doesn’t have a 9 pin serial port, you will need our USB to serial adapter to connect to this unit. However, there are several other things you may wish to add to use this unit to its full potential.

Will this control VVT if I swap in a later VVT Miata engine?

  • This unit does not support VVT. You could add our VVTuner piggyback device if you swap in a VVT motor.

    Asked by wouter

    Plugging a '90-'93 MSPNP into a '96-'97 1.8 MX5 Miata wiring harness is likely to damage the ECU. The connectors physically fit, but the pinout is completely different.

    If this is a 1.6 MX5, use the '90-'93 base tune.

  2. Does this specific unit include an IAT sensor?

    Q Does this specific unit include an IAT sensor?
    Asked by Kyle Hetzel

    The IAT sensor is sold separately. The MSPNP would normally use the IAT sensor built into the mass air flow sensor. You can add a GM type IAT if deleting the MAF. On these cars, we have found a MAF delete can get around 3-5 hp.
