I have read Flying Scots post on page 8 of this thread.

I have a 98 Japanese SPI with air bag.

It has the 3 pin white connector under the bonnet.

It also has the 16 pin OBD socket under the steering column.

It does not have a key fob.

It has an MPI distributorless block, twin plug NEMS, wasted spark coil pack, and of course SPI injection

Planning on buying a Sykes Pickavant ACR4.

I live in Australia and will be buying from the UK so I want to get this right first time.

Am I correct in assuming that I need the Rover 4 pod as a minimum?

I am a bit nervous about the G2 Pod as these can be wiped and are no longer supported.

Flying Scot suggests that AC4's and Japanese minis connect the OBD.

Advice on what might be the correct lead would be appreciated.

My main use will be to set idle speed.

I have an OBD reader which works wonderfully well on my other cars but does not pick up a thing on the mini.

Thanks in advance

Didn’t see your post sorry.

Rover Pod 4 or iMAP type will allow you to check the airbag. If your not fussed about that pod 3 is fine.

3 pin AMP connector does the engine data

mems-rosco from github.com/leopoldg can now read white space separated  (I think ps-scan) logfiles too.

I have made available MemFCR (Rover Mems Fault Code Reader) for Windows and Macbook on https://memsfcr.co.uk
The application gives live view of the ECU and provides active diagnostics and adjustments and fault code clearing.
You will need to buy the ECU cable from eBay.
