If you don't have easy access to e85 I don't see the point.

Im looking at that MSPNP MS1 in the fs section now for 530 bucks. Is it worth it? I mean it worked for everyone when it came out and a while after. Is the MS2 really worth the extra cash?

its only 630 or maybe a little less for a brain built DIYPNP MS2.... big MEH for the MS1 unit for that price IMO.

if you can solder, diypnp is pretty easy for around 500 bucks...that's what i'd do fo sho

Just a little something I tried and worked. If your weather stripping for your top is starting to be ineffective and you dont want to spend the cash to replace it, I tried a can of plastidip in a spray can on them and they are like new again. No more leaks.

Ive been mapping out my plan for this car and I think I have everything in order as of right now. The exterior is the only thing I am vacillating on as I have two ideas and one will cost about 4-500 bucks more then the other but no one has done it yet. Not sure if I want to go this route or not.

As far as the engine goes, I still have the POS that came with the car and its been running fine on the loctite fix. I held off on ordering the rods yet because for the past two cars I had, they ran awesome but looked like ***. I never got to the point were I could make them look good so this time around, I might do the visual stuff first, then get to the mechanics. Its *** backwards I know but I need to change things up in order to keep my interest going.

Jared, if I give you a list of parts that I'd like to have, can I buy them from you at a steep discount in six months when you part your car out?

This is not going to be a track car by any means. Just the all around visual package I have been wanting to build for a long long time but never could because of issue after issue mechanically and financially and once maritally.
