No such thing as a 6 cylinder DSM. A 6 cylinder Mitsubishi CAS look like this:
None of the 6cyl Mitsubishi's used a CAS identical to the four cylinder cars. Mounting is much different as well. These sensors are not a direct replacement for what's documented in this thread.
Just from that picture I can see that the mounting is different and that the body dia is bigger and longer. Better pay more attention to your "rice". DSMs are built in Normal, IL BTW.
actually the sensor part of it is, the shell and the mechanical means to make it work, however, are not.
While poking around at the shop today, I noticed that the earlier miatas with no head mounted ignition coil pack indeed have a DSM cas.
The unit was out sitting on the bench, and it had a mitsubishi insignia on it. I was not allowed to open the unit to my dismay and inspect to see if it was indeed optical or magnetic.
