Finished tig welding all the exhaust componts at work and trial fitted on car. With this done I was able to throw some fuel in the tank and try starting the engine for the first time. Cranks with good spark but won' t run. Fuel pump is working but the cylinders are dry. Seams to be a problem with the injectors not firing . Drop a bit of fuel down the plugs and it fires into life. Having a bit of trouble working out the wiring on the circut opening relay. I have the wiring diagram for the miata engine but not being a auto electrician, found it a bit hard to get my head around. Otherwise making good progress.

If the fuel pump is running when cranking then the circuit opening relay should be ok, my thoughts would be the built in Mazda immobiliser?
