MegaSquirt PNP On Demand Program

Want to make an MSPNP for a car not listed?'s tech department is going to be developing new MSPNPs continually now. We've got a list of applications we plan to build, so it's possible your car is already on our to-do list.  But if you have a car that's not on our to-do list, we now have an organized program where we can make an MSPNP happen if enough people are willing to pre-order one.  We just need to make sure the MSPNP is technically feasible and we have the right connector for the car. You supply the market, we'll supply the MSPNP. We call this MSPNP On Demand. Here's an overview of the process.

  1. Make sure has the ECU connector for your car in stock. (Check this page if you're not sure.)
  2. Find a bunch of fellow enthusiasts who are interested in an MSPNP for your car.
  3. Contact to check if there are any technical issues with making an MSPNP for your car.
  4. We'll need at least 10 pre-orders with a $300 deposit and at least one test car. It's a good idea to have a back-up test car available too.
  5. Once we have the test car and the pre-orders, we'll get right to work on creating an MSPNP!

We are able to start one MSPNP On Demand development program per month, in addition to our regularly scheduled MSPNP development. MSPNPs already in development are not eligible for the program.

So, what does need to make this happen?

First, we will need to determine if there are any factors about the car that would prevent an MSPNP from working, such as needing features the MSPNP doesn't have in order to run correctly, or a connector we can't obtain.  See the list of DIYPNP models for connectors we currently have on hand and a partial list of what they'll fit.  Right now, we can only offer this program for cars with connectors we have in stock. There are two big things we need from the enthusiast community (which could be a message board, car club, racing league, etc.). We'll need a commitment to buy a minimum of ten MSPNPs and a $300 deposit for each MSPNP.  People who pre-order get a $100 discount off the MSPNP if they order within 30 days of the MSPNP being released. And we will need to borrow at least one test car for development and tuning.  The test car needs to be brought to our shop in Suwanee, Georgia (just a little bit northeast of Atlanta).

We have a few requirements for this test car:

  • The car needs to be mechanically sound. It must be running well, no leaks, no overheating issues, no brakes that fail after a minute of driving. The car will need to hold up to several hours of dyno tuning and may be taken around the parking lot for throttle response tests.

  • The car needs to be running on the stock ECU with no piggyback devices installed.

  • The wiring harness must be in good shape with few if any splices and no broken connectors or other major damage. We strongly discourage bringing in test cars where the harness has any sort of wire tuck that involves cutting or splicing, or electrical components relocated to places where they are subject to unusual amounts of water, heat, dust, or debris thrown from tires. Electrical components that are just free-hanging where they should be bolted down are also not advised.

  • The car shouldn't have any misfires or other signs the ignition system, wiring, etc., may not be up to snuff. reserves the right to reject a test car for any reason. If the car is in good shape, this shouldn't be an issue.  If the first test car turns out to be a junker, though, you may need to find us another test car. As unexpected problems (either mechanical or scheduling) sometimes crop up, we recommend having an alternate test car lined up in case the first test car is unable to show up or not suitable for testing.  We once had a test car get run over by a dump truck the week before it was scheduled to arrive.  We strongly recommend a Plan B just in case.

It's possible we may also need the people requesting the MSPNP to provide wiring diagrams or other information about the car, particularly for cars or engines not sold in the USA or cars sold here in very small numbers.

How does the MSPNP On Demand process work?

Here are the steps to getting to make an MSPNP for your car.  The car community will need to designate somebody (referred to here as "the representative") to get in touch with and coordinate things with the car community.

  1. Have the representative contact us with what make, model, engine, and year range you want to see an MSPNP for.

  2. will conduct a feasibility study about whether an MSPNP Gen 2 can adequately run the car, and what year range the MSPNP can fit.  If the MSPNP is for something we don't have a connector for, we will also look into whether we can find a good source for connectors.  At this stage, we may request some items or information from the representative, including wiring diagrams, or possibly a factory ECU.  It is possible, but unlikely, that we may need the test car at this stage to complete the feasibility study.  We may determine that covering the whole year range will require several MSPNPs, each of which gets its own MSPNP On Demand program that requires its own test car and deposit.  Each separate MSPNP On Demand will be independent, requiring its own test car and pre-orders.

  3. will let the representative know if an MSPNP can be made for these cars.  If it can be made, we will also provide a list of what feature set will be available on this car.  We will also calculate the price at this stage.  Base price for a Gen 2 MSPNP is $799.  If the MSPNP requires unusual parts such as an alternate trigger disc or unusual and expensive circuits, this may increase the price above the base.  Also, we will let the representative know when we can start the development process. Note that the development can't really get up to speed until we have the test car at our shop.

  4. The representative can share these details with the community and sign buyers up.  Once there are people committed to buying 10 ECUs, let know. We'll collect a $300 deposit per MSPNPs once we have a commitment to buy 10 MSPNPs and are ready to start working, with the deposit to be used towards the future purchase of an MSPNP.  We will also need to have the test car brought to our shop at this point, as it will be crucial for development.  We have a 20 MSPNP cap on pre-orders.

    • Deposits are collected through the website - the deposit appears as an item that can be added to your shopping cart. When you place the order, please include the following details in the Comments field on the shopping cart:

      • A link to the MSPNP On Demand group buy thread you are participating in

      • Your forum screen name

      • The year / make / model / engine of the car you are buying an MSPNP for

  5. develops the MSPNP.  We will do our best to keep this under 2 months.  If this goes over 2 months for reasons other than a faulty test car (or the test car not showing up at all), people who have asked for the deposit may request and receive a refund. (The deposit is otherwise non-refundable.) Since test car issues can postpone MSPNP release, we strongly recommend having a back-up test car arranged.

  6. The new MSPNP is officially released and available for order on the website.  People who pre-ordered the MSPNP will get a $100 discount if they order within the first 30 days of the MSPNP's official release, as well as having the $300 deposit applied to the purchase of the MSPNP. This discount and credit is distributed in the form of coupon codes.
