As Spitfire states here nothing works with this setup on the AEM, We are using an S2000 Cluster as a display. No a/c, No heat and no ABS/TCS. I would personally not recommend going the route of a can bus converter as you will entirely rely on a third party to get your setup working. Go with what works and what is out there and fully developed. For ANY swap that's out there i will ALWAYS go with the PNP solution especially for a customers car. If someone doesn't want any features at all and truly understands that, that would be a different story.

Will this other ecu be the only option or well motec be an option as well for the consumer to chose between the two?

Engine and Trans are a safe bet, the jury is out on the intake manifold until I figure out the accessories, the adapter plate gets an 8 out of 10 score from me overall, so I'll probably start selling them soon as a dealer.

Would it be possible for Pure to collab with the K-Miata guys for an A/C kit for this swap??
We are working on another option besides MoTeC but as @spitfire481 said, MoTeC will always be an option because it's the best and we drink the koolaid !

Wish you guys were local...I'd offer my labor for free to get some progress on this project...lol. I'm really on board with the weight savings potential.

On friday, we managed to make a prototype header that we will use to build a jig. Also finalized the engine mounts for the last time so we can start building the jigs. Got a stock K harness stripped down and we are starting the process of making the ecu pinout
