Hi,
I have a Mini 1000 that I've converted to Spi. I purchased a crash damaged Spi Paul Smith Edition from Japan and transplanted all the bits into my Mini 1000. Just a quick question, this engine does not use a distributor but uses a coil pack.So does that mean this is a OBD spec engine as there is also an OBD type connector under the dash,plus it has an airbag steering wheel.If I'm not wrong,the Paul Smith Editions were on sale from 1998? Any information will be helpful.Thanks in advance !

Didn't know where to mention this but if anyone near me has an Spi, 91 to 96, and has problems with it and suspects it is a sensor, I have a code reader/reset and will always test the ECU,(free) if you PM me. I use it on our Race Minis.

wish you lived closer to me, having probs with ruby, crazy idle speed, will a rolling road sort it out mate?

I think your temp sensor located at the intake manifold giving you the problem. These sensor control your idle speed, I think.

Does anyone have a link to a description of the Crypton ACT from the manufacturer?
With a list of the components needed to read an SPi: cable, card and reader?

Here is the info for SP ACR
Part Number:Product Name Price
30055400: ACR4 Code Reader 435.56
30214000: Rover 16 Pin Harness Mpi 75.00
30350800: Rover Pod 92.99
30211600: Rover Harness Spi 55.42

Prices are new prices. Other older pods will work on just SPi and older cables will work on MPi also.
These show up on eBay on a regular basis.

Do you have the part numbers for the ACT components?
If some one is looking on eBay, it is helpful to know the specific parts numbers needed. There seems to be several ACT readers (I, II, III), just like there are different versions of pods for the ACR2 and ACR4

The Crypton 'ACT 1' (not 2 or 3, as far as I know) can deal with SPI minis

In addition to the ACT 1 unit itself, you need what Crypton describe as their ASK-3 Kit. Essentially, this kit basically comprises of a Lead (No. ASA003) and a Card (No. ASC3).

From a DaveRob post:

ACT has the following modules and cables

ACT1 main module
Rover MEMS ASC3 card
Cable assembly ASA003

Covers everything I need and has real time data and can reset ECU...Tune stepper and idle air.... In fact everything I need to keep my SPi in good nick ECU wise.... the mechanical stuff is up to me and my grazed knuckles....lol

Yes you can get them, they are of the OBD type. Sykes Pickavant ACR have a pod for the OBD Rovers as do most of the other big name service tools, IE Snapoff.


I'm thinking of getting a fault code reader for my MPI, what would I be looking for in one?

Also....

What's the difference between OBD and OBD2?

I'm guesing they're completely different?
