Toyotas spins clockwise and a couple of guys on here are making it work with a honda dizzy, sensor, and ecu. So there should not be a problem with a mazda motor then.

Why so scared of megasquirt? It is a pain in the ***, but its a great learning experience. What mazda engine are we talking here anyway?

I have some serious complaints about Megasquirt, but it works great on the Miatas. It should, too, seeing as how a lot of the beta testing for MS is done on Miatas. Soooo, B5, B6, BP... if you aren't looking for big drag car power, say keep it at or under 300 whp, I think it'd be more work to fit the Honda distributor.

From what ive read theirs a few super easy ways to retrofit honda to anything. Make a bracket that mounts the dizzy onto the exhaaust or intake side cam gear. Cut the shaft weld a 12mm socket to it that presses up against the cam nut lol. VOILA honda dizzy, the rest is just wiring. You also get free halfassed ign advance retard lol.

By the time you adapt the Honda dist, plumb and wire sensors, make a conversion harness to plug in a Honda ECU, etc, you've eclipsed time it takes to solder the ~25 wires a MS needs and exceeded what a MS costs.

MS on a Miata flat out works, and has datalogging that's a ton better than some $1500 standalones.
