You really have to be careful doing stuff others have already received licenses for. For example, doing a PNP board when there are already PNP options from DIYAutoTune is strongly frowned upon.

I guess someone should look at the licensing on the MS-II. It's easy to **** off the wrong people and get threatened, at least, I've heard of it.

If you can run the MS-II code, maybe all you have to buy from B&G is the MS-II chip. If they are ok with it, I'd be happy to try to lay out a board maybe to use the MS-II daughtercard and the rest would be PnP miata?

Maybe it's more trouble than it's worth, but it would be small. :-)
The board I'm using is really nothing special. I only used it because I desperately wanted to git rid of the DB37 boomslang harness. The board is similar to the one DIY uses in their DIY kits, but I don't think you can buy theirs seperately. It's made for a 3SGE which has the injectors and power on different pins, so I do need to reinforce a couple of traces (no big deal though).
The geek that I am, I see it as a challenge to build all necessary circuits on the existing V3 PCB, hence only a board for the connector.
Had it used the 64pin connector instead of the 72pin, I would have tried to stuff it inside the standard MS case even.

You're right about your board. You could turn it into a full blow PNP by simply adding the MS2 daughterboard and a couple of extra circuits. But I'm sure B&G won't allow it, otherwise DIY wouldn't have used a µSquirt.
From the standpoint of the geeks that we are, it would be totally awesome to make such a board, although more trouble than it's worth and not sellable without getting into trouble (which I totally understand btw!)
