Tyre Pressure Monitoring System After-fit

My R3 is a standard UK model that comes without TPMS.

I acquired a while back an R3 instrument cluster with TPMS for a project car that I now no longer have.

Fitting an aftermarket stand-alone TPMS is probably my best option if I want it. However, I want to at least investigate the other cluster.

Can anyone please help with info on whether or not I can fit this and get the TPMS working, for example:
@ Will the rest of the system be the same?
@ Will non-Mazda sensors work and, if so, are they here any valve cap sensors?

The TPMS module is separate from the instrument cluster. Did that come with the cluster?

Thanks.

The block diagrams I have for the TPMS are taken from a Series II servicing manual (2011 - RX-8). It shows the TPMS sensors communicating with the keyless receiver, not a separate TPMS module, although I had expected to see one.

Perhaps I am being misled by the S1 term 'keyless receiver' that I see in the S1 wiring diagrams (see attached). I understand that in the S1 the keyless receiver communicates with the key fob for locking and unlocking.

Which is still separate from the cluster.

If you need the module from an R3, I am sure I have it.

Correct. However, my point was around a different, separate, TPMS module rather than the 'keyless receiver' that all S1s have.
If you need the module from an R3, I am sure I have it.
Thanks. However, I'm in the UK and I'm really asking for someone else with an S1, so that won't be worth the effort.
